At Blossom, we care about providing quality education for all children.

In 2016, Blossom Educational was founded from a simple problem: practitioners have too much paperwork and not enough quality time with the children.

Our software is built by Early Years experts from across the UK, using the expertise of owners, managers and practitioners to create a platform fit for all.

What we do

Blossom’s aim is simple. Provide easy to use software which will save childcare settings time and money. Starting out as a learning journey software, Blossom has grown to become much more and the software covers all areas of nursery management.

At Blossom, we believe in growth. Thats why our product
is never finished, there are always ways to improve. We
release new updates and features every month whilst
directly working with our cutomers to build features that
are useful to staff and parents.

icon About

As a practitioner the thing I enjoyed the most was spending time with the children. One of the biggest challenges I faced working in a nursery was that I was spending a large proportion of my time writing observations and reports as opposed to being in the classroom teaching.
