At this point in in your parenting journey, you may be asking, what do I want for my child as she begins to establish first relationships outside of your home. Here at Bridges we work in a collaborative way. Parents and teachers work together to create an attentive environment that is responsive to the needs of young learners and their families.
Loris Malaguzzi, founder of the Reggio Emilia Program, describes a family entering the school environment for the first time. "When you enter the school in the morning, you carry with you pieces of your life – your happiness, your sadness, your hopes, your pleasures, the stresses from your life."
Bridges sees this first relationship, this beginning with your family, as a passage to independence and wonder for all of us. We will help you and your children to cross the first bridge from home to school and to build so many more.
Bridges has provided a valuable education to our community for over 30 years. We hope you will join us. Thank you for your interest in Bridges, please review our website, and plan to attend one of our information meetings. We look forward to meeting you and your family.
