Children Don't Fit in a BOX

Blooming Blossoms Trust believes that children don't all fit in a box. We embrace the strengths that children have and help them harness their differences so that they can become the best form of themselves. For all of the celebration of differences and the novelty of divergence, so many kids just want to fit in. If we’re honest, we want our kids to fit in. We want our kids to have normal childhoods, plenty of friends.

Some children, for no clear reason, feel like elephants in their classrooms. They fail academically. They are loners socially, and are misunderstood by their families. They squeeze and twist themselves to fit the box, but usually don't succeed. In this process they are hurting and desperate to be understood and valued for who they are. These children are slipping through the cracks in support systems; they do not need special schools or juvenile delinquency programs. They don't meet NHS criteria for therapy or ECHP levels for a statement. This is a child on the playing field; when all the children are running right, he is fixed on a ladybug creeping out of earth

We offer an after school and holidays program uniquely geared to different kids. Mad Discovery Lab for gifted kids, The Walking Talking Feeling Sensory Garden, Literacy Literally Club for immigrant children and those with communication deficits, The Shape Sorter Talent Club etc.  We serve 80 children on a weekly basis and 40% during seasonal periods. 89% of these children's family's are reliant on means tested benefits and some have no recourse to public funds. Children come from London boroughs of Haringey and surrounding areas.
