About The Bridge

Our goal is for the children enrolled in our program to feel safe and known as they build a Biblical foundation of Christ-centered learning for preschool.

We are located in Christ Community Church near the new bridge being built on Highway 52 in Helena. We see our program as a bridge between home and school, preparing preschoolers for kindergarten.

Program Curriculum

Three & Four Year Olds

Our three-and-four-year-old students will receive daily reading readiness and alphabet instruction, math skills through calendar time and hands-on learning and exploring God’s world through seasonal and science units. There will be a Bible story and craft time as well as a snack, and both outdoor and indoor play.

We will use “The Jesus Storybook Bible” by Sally Lloyd Jones for our Bible story time. The curriculum also includes weekly music and chapel. We want to give students the tools they need to be prepared to start kindergarten and to be grounded in God’s love for them.

2 Year Olds

Our two-year-olds will have daily indoor and outdoor play, snack, Bible story time, music and lots of fun learning to engage life with others their age. Students will be introduced to the letters of the alphabet and numbers 1-9.
