The Advanced Bridge Program for four year olds who have a birthday
after September 1st uses the Scholastic Early Childhood Program. The
program is comprehensive and immerses children in real-world themes
that begin with what is familiar to children and connects to the world
around them. The program develops the early learning skills and
experiences that are critical for the children's future success in Pre-Kindergarten.
Through purposeful play as well as explicit instruction, the program
provides our most eager learners with a strong foundation in early
literacy, language, math, and science skills while encouraging
personal and social development.
