Learning Bridge's historic Queen Anne mansion on an acre of land creates a unique home away from home for young children.
Four of our five classrooms are located in the main house; the fifth classroom is an accredited Montessori classroom in our two-story coach house. Age-appropriate educational materials, toys, books, games, craft and art work spaces, as well as areas for eating and napping help each child thrive. A gross motor playroom for exercise in inclement weather, and a lending library of family books help enrich our school.
Our expansive outdoor area is another Learning Bridge classroom and a distinguishing feature of our school! Two gardens, a poured-surface bike track and large playground offer a variety of daily activities. All children are outside together twice a day when weather allows. Outdoor play strengthens the school community and furthers a child's kindergarten readiness.
Snacks and lunch are included in tuition. Special dietary needs are accommodated through careful communication between parents and teachers. Gourmet Gorilla provides the Learning Bridge kitchen with food that is 100% from local, sustainable, organic purveyors. All food is hormone-, antibiotic- and peanut-free and meets FDA and DCFS nutrition guidelines.
