Excellence in Education
The Building Bridges Curriculum is inspired by the Creative Curriculum and varied approaches to learning. Children are actively involved in playful S.T.E.A.M. learning experiences for a well-rounded education.
Fun And Creative Learning
Children have the opportunity to engage in child-directed activities and playing, as well as participate in teacher-lead activities. Partaking in these exercises builds social skills, cooperation, and sense of a classroom community as your child further develops judgment, comprehension, and listening skills.
Discovering Roles and Responsibilities
Giving children age-appropriate tasks develops their belief in themselves and in their capabilities. They naturally build confidence, a sense of responsibility, and an understanding of what it is to participate and be a part of a community.
Caring, Qualified Teachers
A Warm and Welcoming Haven
Feel Secure Knowing Your Child is Safe
There is nothing quite like the peace of mind you feel knowing that your child is in the capable hands of qualified, caring teachers. All staff are CPR/First Aid certified and receive approximately 20 hours of health and safety training. Our Team also accepts ongoing local and federal background checks, and all of our entrances are keypad locked to prevent unauthorized access. These measures ensure your child is in good hands and is safe at all times.
Clean And Organized Classrooms
Positive Behavior Management
We use a positive approach in our classrooms. When children receive understanding interactions from adults and others, they develop good problem-solving abilities, self-discipline, and self-esteem.
Healthy And Nutritious Meals
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 lunches and snacks specially designed to support your child’s health.

Mobile App With Photos and Daily Reports
Through “Brightwheel,” our parent communication app, you’ll receive photos and daily reports. This app is a fun way of connecting and an asset because it also expertly promotes our value system: well-being, fun, excellence, relationships, honesty, availability, and creativity.
Large Indoor Play Spaces
Our gross motor areas are designed for your child to run, jump, and play. Big movements train large muscle groups and such active exercise is essential to your child’s development. We make sure your child experiences such liberating play every day.
