Keeping Your Family Safe From COVID-19
That Starts From Day 1
The impact of your child’s early education can’t be overstated. These years lay the foundation for your child’s future school success, emotional well-being, ability to think and reason, and overall self-esteem. We nurture creative thinking, problem-solving, and self-love in your child at this crucial stage so that they can confidently take their next step to Kindergarten.
A Part Of The Curriculum
The skills children need most for today’s world are social-emotional skills. We go beyond academics to include negotiation, conflict resolution, creative thinking, and decision-making in your child’s lesson plans. With interpersonal relationship skills and practical life skills built into the curriculum children learn to take care of themselves, and each other.
A Blend of Educational Methods Set A Solid Academic Foundation
The Building Bridges Curriculum blends the best of education models to include learning through play and direct instruction with influences from Reggio Emilia and Montessori methodology. It’s proven that young children retain lasting knowledge through such immersive experiences. S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) education is woven into daily experiences.
What Are The Hidden Benefits Of Child-Led Activities and Play?
There’s a reason children have the opportunity to engage in child-directed activities and playing, as well teacher-lead activities. Partaking in these exercises builds social skills, cooperation, and sense of a classroom community. Along with social-emotional skills and teamwork skills, your child develops judgment, comprehension, and listening.
Practical Life Skills That
Will Last For A Lifetime
Giving children age-appropriate tasks and chores develops their belief in themselves and their capabilities. They learn self-help skills like getting dressed by themselves and life skills like sweeping up and setting the table. Bonus! They inherently gain a sense of responsibility and pride as an active participant in their classroom community.
Caring, Qualified Teachers
Light Up Your Child's Mind
Teachers with a love of children who have early education as their vocation are also highly degreed and qualified. Your child learns from an experienced and passionate teacher: someone who is dedicated to their subject matter, committed to them, and whose calling is passing along their love of learning.

And Organized Classrooms
Protects Good Health
Green construction features include individually climate-controlled classrooms and low-VOC materials to maintain superior air quality. Learning areas are designed to delight, intrigue, and inspire young learners while limiting exposure to harmful toxins. We believe the eco-healthy certification is a prerequisite for a quality childcare environment.
Children Learn Values Through Positive Behavior Management
We use a positive approach in our classrooms. Teachers remain centred and calm as they provide children with objective feedback that helps them reason through -and change- any unwanted behaviour. Through compassionate, understanding interactions with teachers and peers, they can mirror this understanding and compassion in the world.
Healthy And Nutritious Meals Are Included In The Cost Of Tuition
During the first few years of life, a child’s brain and cognitive function undergo significant growth and development. Nutrition plays a vital role in healthy development during these critical stages. We provide healthy lunches and snacks to support your child, free of charge, to support you and your family.
