Established in 2000, Bloom Early Learning & Child Care is an accredited, award-winning, non-profit early learning center with a special mission to make the highest quality childcare, programs and curriculum accessible to the entire community.

Most parents must rely on childcare on a daily basis. For many single parents and low-income families, meeting the cost of high quality childcare is simply impossible. They may turn to family, friends or inexpensive professional caregivers less qualified to nurture their children’s development and prepare them for kindergarten.  

Fellow Rotarian, Melissa Musliner, the Bloom's Executive Director, is inviting you to their annual benefit on September 25th.  Click here for details.

   

UPDATE:  All five (5) sessions are filled.  We will provide information if additional dates are added.  Thank you.

It was a beautiful day in Plymouth as Rotary District Governor, Tom Gump, joined Plymouth MN Rotary on Thursday, August 20th.  Past Co-Presidents, Peter Bartling and James Williams presented awards including Paul Harris Fellow Awards. The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, to the Rotary Foundation.
 
Rotary established the recognition in  1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships.   Sharing the honor with the likes of U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yelstin, U.S. Astronaut James Lovell, and polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk, here is a list of local folks honored at the this event: Bruce Behm, Jim Bird, Jim Crenna, Carol Parrish, Kristen Miller (Sun Sailor), Jim Long (Plymouth Public Safety), Dave Kiser (CCX Media), Jeff Wosje, Steve Beachler, Chad Zejdlik, Dwain Erickson, Steven Juetten, Kevin Remde, Virginia Anthony, Meena Chettiar, Jill Kohler and Jon Ginther.  Congratulations!
