Bridges Montessori Academy views each child as a unique individual and one to be respected for that uniqueness.
Bridges offers an environment which allows for the natural unfolding of the child and builds a foundation for lifelong learning.
Through a carefully prepared environment and curriculum, the child is exposed to a variety of experiences and materials.
Each is designed to nurture the child's absorbent mind and foster his total development.
Bridges provides an interdisciplinary manipulative-oriented experience which facilitates independence, self-confidence, self-learning and respect.
Each program offers a unique meshing of learning styles which keep pace with the individual educational needs of the child in today's society.
