Bridges Montessori School

  • Bridges Montessori is dedicated to providing a nurturing and secure environment based on the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • This method is based on the use of hands-on, manipulative materials, which enable children to learn through all of their senses.
  • A child can feel a sandpaper letter while hearing the sound it makes, learn to differentiate smells, sounds, and tactile experiences, and become self directed through the prepared environment.
  • A Bridges student has the benefit of having the same teacher for three years; this establishes a relationship much deeper than that of a teacher and student in a traditional, one-year educational setting.
  • Bridges is an environment that cherishes the whole child.
  • We believe each individual is unique and deserving of our respect.
  • Bridges embraces the differences in everyone and strives to create a community of acceptance and joy, not only with the children, but with the family as well.
  • Our goal is to foster confident, independent learners with a high degree of self-discipline and a desire to continue to grow and learn.
