About Our Journey

A Letter From Casey

I am thrilled to connect with you as we embark on an exciting new chapter in the Bloom story. Your interest in joining our Bloom Tribe is a fantastic choice, and I want to extend my warmest welcome to you. We believe that Bloom is a unique early childhood center, and your interest in becoming a part of our journey is truly appreciated.

My own journey with Bloom began as I faced a significant life-changing decision — the choice of where my own son would go to school. At the end of my maternity leave, this decision weighed heavily on me, and it was a turning point that led to the creation of Bloom. I recognized a need within our community, a desire for a place where families could entrust their children with confidence, knowing they would receive the highest quality care in a nurturing environment. We aimed to create a place that felt like a home away from home for both children and their families, where teachers were not just employees but valued members of our community who brought passion and care to their work every day.

As we grow and evolve, our commitment remains the same: lead in providing top-notch child care services while also being the best employer in the industry for early child care leaders and educators seeking growth within their field. We take pride in fostering internal growth and enabling our team members to thrive right here with us.

We are also committed to an educational philosophy that minimizes screen exposure for children under five. This initiative is based on extensive research highlighting the negative impacts of screen time on young learners. Instead, we focus on human-centric interactions, which ensures that our students are immersed in a learning environment that values engagement, creativity, and real-world experiences over digital distractions.

The decision to franchise Bloom Academy is driven by a deep-seated desire to spare new franchisees from the challenges and hardships I faced while building this company from the ground up. Our goal is to share the Bloom experience with others, enabling them to provide the same level of care, love, and educational excellence that we’ve come to be known for.

By joining our franchise family, you become a crucial part of this endeavor to make a difference in the lives of children and families across even more communities. Together, we will continue to set new standards in early childhood education and childcare.

1. Contact Us To Learn More

We are excited to share our story with you and want to start by finding out more about you, your goals and your interest in Bloom Academy child care franchise ownership. Simply fill out the inquiry form and we will send you our Franchise Owners E-Brochure. We will contact you to discuss your goals and share our vision with you. You can also call 941.646.8077 or email us at [email protected] and we will send you a franchise owner brochure and invite you to the “Discover Bloom” webinar to help you to get to know us.

Congratulations on your decision to own a franchise and your interest in a child care franchise! Our next step is to introduce you to Bloom Academy through our “Discover Bloom” Webinar. It’s a great way to learn more about Bloom Academy franchising, meet the franchise development team, and explore the unique value proposition of becoming a franchisee.

After the “Discover Bloom” Webinar, we discuss our franchise qualification criteria and ask you to submit a franchise application that helps us to quickly learn more about you and your qualifications to be successful as a Bloom Academy franchise owner.

Once submitted, we discuss the next steps in our franchise process and ensure that we’ve answered all of your questions before proceeding.

One of the most important steps in our franchise application process is the review of our Franchise Disclosure Document. The Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) is a legal disclosure document that the FTC, who regulates Franchising, requires the Franchisor to give to qualified prospective franchisees interested in buying a U.S. franchise as part of the franchise due diligence process.

It contains information essential to potential franchisees, and it is critical to understand before making a significant investment. We share this document only with prequalified franchise candidates, so it’s important that we’re both in agreement to move forward with the franchise process.

We will facilitate your research into a Bloom Academy Franchise, and we want you to learn about several key areas of Bloom Academy and the child care franchise business. We’ll schedule a series of informational video calls with you to share information and to answer your questions.

Meeting our Founder, Casey Kennedy, begins a potential life-long relationship with the leader of our Bloom Tribe. Casey lives the Bloom culture, and core values daily. She is a Mom, a business owner and manager, and a staff mentor who exemplifies the characteristics of courage, passion, caring, business acumen, and commitment to her family, team, customers, and her community, the attributes we seek in our Bloom Franchisees.

Next, you have the opportunity to get to know our founder and the Bloom Academy leadership team while gaining an understanding of their qualifications and experience in growing the brand.

You will also meet the Franchise Support Team to discuss various functional areas with the person on our team responsible for supporting you as a franchisee. We’ll also tour a Bloom Academy to give you a live in-person look into our business and your potential business.
