A Note from Jonnie

I am so thrilled to be writing this letter and to be sharing with you, the pedagogy and early educational practices of Natural Bridges Children's Center. 

Our team of experienced & loving educators are committed to the field of early childhood

education. We have studied with the many legends before us who have paved the way for

children’s rights and who have been advocates for this profession. We at NBCC continue to

carry this torch with a deep passion.

Our love of child development, brain research, and of building community drives our belief that

all human beings can grow, learn, & prosper. We believe in peace and feel we are "changing the 

world one child at a time" 

(a quote from Jean Gallagher-Heil; Cabrillo College Professor/Department Chair). 

Informed by brain research, we understand that the architecture for learning is constructed

during the first 5 years and that quality early experiences cultivate the foundations for future

academic and life success. 

Our team is dedicated to helping young learners develop the mindsets for learning; instilling the

growth mindsets; persistence, resilience, flexibility, optimistic, and empathetic.  We also foster 

children's innate sense of wonderment for the natural environment and teach them to be stewards to mother earth. 

We help children in acquiring the social & emotional, literacy, cognitive, and physical 

skills necessary for their future academic & life success. 

We specialize in creating a caring and inclusive environment where as families and children feel

safe and supported. It is our hope that through the building of bridges between home, school, and the community, we can create a ‘village’ to raise healthy and happy children!

Our dream of opening a quality, progressive preschool where children are nurtured, and where

they are encouraged to express their best selves has been a long awaited journey. 

We are finally here and invite you to share in our joy.

Here is to all of the adventures that lie ahead! 

Very Warmest,
Jonnie Cardinale
