Bridges Child Development Center

500 N State St
Hemet, CA 92543-0951
Tel: (951)658-3354
Grades: K-6 | 26 students
Bridges Child Development Center's aim is to stimulate and develop three elements, spirit, soul & body in young children by immersing them in nurturing surroundings.
Kids are encouraged to engage in creative free play rather than playing computer games because those activities get in the way of using all five senses to absorb and actively engage in life.
We strive to create a comfortable, homelike environment that offers children plenty of opportunities to freely imitate what they see and to indulge in creative play.
Daily activities range from painting, coloring, singing, and reciting poems to modeling with beeswax, baking bread, building houses out of boxes, sheets, and boards, and dressing up and pretending to be parents, kings, and magicians.

School Reviews

My daughter attended preschool at Bridges and is about to begin Kindergarten there. She loves going to school! The teachers are all wonderful, very nice and always sensitive to ALL of the children''s needs. It is truly amazing how much my daughter has learned while attending Bridges. They study all different subjects, while making it fun for the children so they want to learn. If the school continued beyond Kindergarten, I would continue to keep my daughter there. I would highly recommend Bridges.
