Bridges, along with WEE Learn Curriculum provides a framework on which teachers can build an early childhood program that allows children to grow and develop as Jesus did – in “wisdom and stature” and in “favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52).

A child’s growth and development is viewed as a process, not an event.  Development begins when the child is conceived and continues throughout life.  Our curriculum will provide a range of activities which are designed to meet the needs of toddlers at their level of development along the growth continuum. Teachers will  provide guidance and activities in each unit to help each child develop language and other foundational skills appropriate to his or her stage of development.

Physical, mental emotional, social, and spiritual development are interrelated.  The teacher will select activities and experiences which provide a balanced program of early childhood education.

Our curriculum is developed around themes which provide opportunities for toddlers to learn about God, Jesus, the Bible, the church, self, family, others, and the natural world.  Experiences which encourage physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual development are included in each theme topic.  Teachers will use activities to plan individual and small group activities which will meet the specific needs and interest of each child.
