Our name was chosen by the founding mothers for three reasons:
- their children were eating lots of bananas
- they sometimes felt that they were “going bananas” with the 24/7 challenges of parenthood
- they wanted a name that was non-bureaucratic, child-friendly and memorable
The name was originally “BANANAS, A Place to Find Playmates”…but we changed it after we received too many inappropriate phone calls from adults. Thank goodness this happened before the internet – just imagine what we might have found in our inbox!
