Dear Bloom visitors

15 years ago, my primary motivation for founding Bloom was my 5 children. I hoped to provide them with a more holistic education than the one I experienced as a child. I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way as well as connect and learn from people with similar experiences.

I look forward to meeting you in person, and I invite you to connect online to share experiences and start conversations important for the future of our children.

My Story

As a child I attended schools in various European countries. My personal experience has shown me that traditional educational systems are no longer relevant in today's social and economical reality  in which individual initiative is the key to advancement. Schools are not designed to prepare children to become active change agents. 

I am of the opinion that we must expand our focus from the sole transfer of knowledge to the building of human character, and the gaining of skills and competences needed to navigate today's world. 

The vision of a different education for our children inspired me to start Bloom as a combination of traditional and new, based on the Montessori approach.


Over the last 15 years, the academic and personal achievement of our students have reinforced my conviction that Bloom's approach is driving us towards the change we are striving for.


Together with Bloom's principal, Nina Bulajić, who is also the school psychologist, we are leading a silent edu-evolution in co-creation with our staff and our parent community.  We hope that more of you will join us in the coming years!
