• We understand the importance of ‘mindfulness’ and take time each day to development awareness of our thoughts & emotions, as well as, to deepen our sense of compassion towards others.
  • Our program is informed by current brain research, the Preschool Learning Foundaations, & the NAEYC early childhood best practices.  We hold these views which guide our work: 
    Children are the Center – we know that children are capable & competent beings and value their interest in constructing their own learning.
    Children are Collaborators – we cultivate an environment that builds community and believe that children form themselves through interactions with peers, adults, and the world. 
    Children are Communicators – we encourage children’s self-expression, honoring their intellectual & creative abilities.
    The Environment is the ‘Third Teacher’ – we support children’s learning in all domains and offer inviting & relevant curriculum 
    Teachers are the Children’s Guide – we partner with children, side by side to enrich & deepen all of their learning experiences. 
  • We inspire children’s learning through added enrichments that include throughout the year: Spanish, Life Lab, Music, Yoga, Dance, & Art.
  • We offer a ‘Child Development Education’ component believing that strong family/teacher collaboration is the bridge to both home and school.

In all that we do here at Natural Bridges Children’s Center, we do with dedication and compassion.  We look forward to being a part of your child’s early childhood education.
