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!
