“The Bloomers! mission is to bring the magical world of gardens, flowers, plants and nature to life, in exciting new ways for young children.
We believe that when children are excited about nature, excitement grows to passion – and passion for how the world is regarded and cared for is the single most important ingredient for the healthiest planet and healthiest people possible.
When rich play meets a variety of playgrounds, it compels children to engage with the natural world around them in relevant and fun ways. Bloomers! is comprised of three ‘playgrounds’ that are authentically linked so that developmental milestones can be reached, educational moments can be achieved, and most importantly children keep the experience alive in their world.”
