To inspire children’s learning, create community, and to build bridges connecting our diversity.
To provide intentional & enriching learning experiences that deepen children's cognitive, physical & social emotional growth and which build personal growth mindsets and compassion towards self & others.
Natural Bridges Children’s Center is a child centered program, where lengthy investigations are honored and children's ideas respected.
It is our view that strong child teacher connections built on trust & mutual respect are the foundations that nurture all children’s learning. A child's sense of safety and feelings of comfort is paramount to their successful learning, growth & development.
NBCC educators understand the importance of social emotional learning and spend their days cultivating positive interactions, and fostering children's awareness of themselves and of others.
NBCC educators pair current brain research with our 5 educator practices ‘ODDSA’ to heighten children's experiences and deepen their neural pathway growth.
These 5 educator practices ‘ODDSA’ are:
O- keen observation of children’s interests & development
D- documentation of observations
D- purposeful dialog, discussion, and direct & indirect instruction
S- intentional staging of environments & scaffolding onto children’s current knowledge base
A- assessment of progress in children’s learning, growth, & development
These 5 educator practices contribute to children's long term learning and lend themselves to children's successful transition into kindergarten and to their future academic success.
