    Kinder at The Bridge

    The Bridge is like Aladdin's treasure cave. All the team members are sparkling jewels and the venue has something even more precious than treasure. It has warmth, empathy, the desire & courage to change while moving forward to meet the wants, hopes & needs of the community it has bonded with.

    I'm not ashamed to say that tears come to my eyes when I think how much my daughter Rose has flourished in the loving care of all staff who bring fun & learning to the Kinder/Childcare.
