Early Childhood Programs

Adventure Playgrounds are common in Europe because of their educational value and superior appeal to children. A side-step from traditional playgrounds, BRiDGES Preschool Playgrounds capture the essence of early childhood with environmentally rich natural elements that include manipulatives and moveable components. BRiDGES Preschool has become well known throughout the educational community for our "Play Clothes Only" approach to outdoor environments.

Our outdoors are an extension of the classroom, full of wonders and opportunities for educational exploration. Some of our unique playground features include mud kitchens, share gardens, a bird and butterfly habitat, water features, music gardens, dirt mounds, loose tires, and a real boat! Co-founder and Executive Director, Cori Fabian accepts opportunities to inspire other schools and their educators by speaking at major Early Childhood Education Conferences about quality indoor and outdoor environments.
