In 2002 husband and wife Lee & Carrie Johnson purchased 40 Alder Road in West Derby, Liverpoool. As parents of a 6 month daughter, they struggled to find suitable childcare when returning to employment. Therefore following on from successful positions in education, they decided to convert the property into their first children’s day nursery… this is how Kids in Bloom came to be. We developed an excellent local reputation and has since expanded. Works started in October 2002 and lasted 8 months.
One Year Later
Kids in Bloom West Derby opened its doors in June 2003. Our reputation as a quality provision grew rapidly and our client base increased on a daily basis. Quickly Kids in Bloom gained a reputation for being a family-run business that can react quickly to local needs but, more importantly, can respond personally to the families that it serves.
Our First After School Club
2004 became a pivotal year for Kids in Bloom. We opened opened our first Out of School Club based in The Cornerstone Centre, West Derby, Liverpool. This came in response to local demand from many parents approaching us struggling to find high quality care for their school age children. It developed an excellent local reputation and has since expanded.
Three years later
In three years Kids in Bloom had opened a second Out of School provision situated within Malvern Primary School, Liverpool. To date, we work hard to maintain the excellent relationship we have with the school, its staff and all the parents and children. It was at this stage we appointed Mr Mark Johnson to the board, to help compliment the management team.
