Our mission is to help each child become an independent, resourceful learner and to empower children to care for themselves, their community, and our fragile environment.
Bridges is a community of learners. As such, our teachers are lifelong learners. We learn with the children, and we reflect regularly on our practice as educators. This is central to learning and teaching at Bridges. We work in teams, planning innovative and stimulating programs that are generated from the children’s ideas, documenting classroom activities and events, and communicating directly with each family.
Bridges teachers work to regularly continue their education through teacher training workshops, seminars, and conferences in the United States and abroad. Teachers regularly attend the Reggio Emilia school in Italy to learn more about the approach that has influenced Bridges’ teaching and learning style for more than thirty years.
