Daryl and Heidi are simply Mum and Dad to their kids Sienna, Sasha, Gus and Meko, but they are also known as the founders and creators of Bloom.
With a vision to create a space of stability, fun, learning and play for children, as well as a pressure-free, stress-free environment for parents, they formed Bloom. A custom designed and built Early Childhood Centre that offers something special for the busy families of an ever-expanding Papamoa. We wanted a place that mums, and dads could send their little ones off to, knowing that their lives would be enriched through creative preschool curriculums and an imaginative play-based learning approach.
Growing up in New Zealand in quieter days they want to replicate their upbringings by developing a place where kids can be kids and parents benefit from the ease of top notch, quality care with a centre they trust and believe in.
“As parents we wanted a centre that provided the level of care that we would expect for our own children,” says Heidi. “Bloom is the beginning of a new generation of child care, so watch this space.”
No expense has been spared, with meaning behind every detail from the paper origami swans to the tiny crowns that adorn their logo. “We really wanted it to be the start of a new approach to this type of facility, more stability and calm, than loud and chaotic,” says Daryl.
We are extremely focused on the calibre of teaching staff that work with us. Bloom is a family and we are always on the lookout for dedicated and like-minded teachers who share in our vision. View our career page to find out more about early childhood education jobs at Bloom.
“We’re really proud of Bloom and can’t wait for the first generation of Bloom kids to walk through the door.”
When they aren’t chasing their children along the beach or running their business, you’ll find Heidi and Daryl busy plotting their next adventure or perhaps catching up on some well deserved rest!
