    Caulbridge School Photo - Caulbridge educators work from a child-development perspective and understand that meeting the child`s needs relevant to their phase of development is foundational to learning and school success. We work to balance a child`s sensory-motor, social-emotional and academic development because to skip over any of these distinct areas will have consequences as your child moves through their school years.
