Bridges to Kinder Pre-K/Preschool provides early childhood education that includes fundamental parent education coursework and instruction. We are dedicated to helping each child develop to his or her full potential socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically, within a safe, structured and stimulating learning environment. In addition, by providing the opportunity for observation and hands on experience, parents gain knowledge of child development theory in action and discover new strategies for increasing their child’s self-esteem, cooperation and problem solving skills, thereby supporting their child to become more successful learners. Our program encourages and supports parents and children to learn, grow and have fun together.
