Growing, Learning And Thriving Together

Forging Meaningful Relationships

At this age of big emotions and developmental changes, building a sense of trust is key. Our hands-on approach to learning gives children and teachers the chance to bond and develop trust-filled relationships, in which everyone feels valued.

Being Part of a Family

Maintaining a safe and nurturing environment is our priority. With teachers and owners who are passionate about each child’s growth and success, we create a sense of family for everyone.

Learning Creatively and Practically

It’s a big wide world with new things to learn every day. From relatable concepts like nature and gardening to trying fresh, healthy food and using the potty, we equip children with skills and knowledge that both serve and inspire them.

Preparing for the Future

With a focus on positive learning through routine, organization, and encouragement, we see our children positively engaged every day. As their self-confidence and social skills grow, they are naturally prepared for the next step.

Academic and Social Skills -
Plus a Sense Of Community

Through our Building Bridges curriculums, children grow through creative play and participate in teacher-led activities. These activities build a sense of classroom community, along with strong academic and essential social skills.

Your child learns strong academic skills, such as:

  • Getting ready for reading: learn to pair sounds and letters and identify shapes
  • Sorting, counting, and patterning give them the confidence to progress with math
  • Expression and creativity are encouraged through art, dance, circle time and music for a holistic approach to physical, mental and emotional growth

Your child learns essential social and behavioral skills, such as:

  • Treating others - and being treated as - a valued member of the community
  • Developing a sense of self-confidence
  • Building independence
  • Learning to get along with others
  • Develop social bonds which are preserved as all eligible 3-year-olds move up to preschool together

Positive Behavioral Support

Unwanted behavior is treated with care and positive actions are reinforced to create a happy, well-adjusted community. We do this through observation and detailed planning so that our positive results are lasting

Healthy Meals And Snacks Provided

Healthy meals and snacks are selected for their cognitive and nutritional benefits since nutrition plays a vital role in healthy development. We provide lunches and snacks specially designed to support your child’s health.

Potty Training Support
For Your Toddler

At this age, potty training is part of learning and development, and what a huge step it is! We support the hard work with patience, positive reinforcement, free wipes, and diapers.

Colorful Classrooms That
Are Clean and Tidy

Classrooms are always spotless thanks to the attentive staff and help children who are encouraged to keep their areas tidy. Our team sanitizes the space regularly, which is bright, neat, and cheerful.

Room For Gross Motor Play

Gross motor play areas allow children to move more freely, to run, jump, and build their strength. Your child will further develop their spatial awareness through uninhibited, physical play.

Inspiring Visitors

Children learn from professionals, including magicians, musicians, dentists, doctors. Gymnasts, firefighters with their trucks and police. We also have visits from pets and, our favorite, from family members.

Accredited By The National Association for the Education of Young Children

Our NAEYC accreditation guarantees high-quality early learning, encouraging positive long-term outcomes in life.

Eco-Healthy Certified

Our classrooms all have individual climate controls and low-VOC materials have been used to maintain indoor air quality. We reduce the use of harmful toxins and harsh chemicals, ensuring a healthier lifestyle for your child.

Parent Communication App Sharing Pictures and Daily Reports

Children play outside twice a day, weather permitting. We will reduce the amount of time spent outside in the event of precipitation or extreme temperatures.

Ratios vary by age. Infants are 1:4

It is natural for children to test limits and rules. Our staff uses positive management strategies including redirection, anticipation/prevention of problems, positive reinforcement, logical consequences and encouragement rather than competition, comparison or criticism. Most importantly, we recognize that part of this process is providing children with the tools and support they need to express their feelings and needs in acceptable ways. We abstain from corporal punishment or other humiliating or frightening disciplinary techniques.

When possible, we will work as a team with outside professionals to implement an individualized plan that supports the child’s inclusion and success. It may be determined that we do not have adequate expertise or resources for the child’s educational, medical, or other needs, especially in situations where safety is at risk.

Parent Reviews

"I absolutely love the staff and the curriculum"
My son is thriving at Ashebridge in Fuquay. I absolutely love the staff and the curriculum. At 3 years old he can tell you about gardening, the life cycle of a butterfly, and which planet has rings around it. His teachers have been a great support during potty training, and they even get my son to eat vegetables!
