Bridge Buddies Educational Preschool

Your bridge to a lifelong love of learning at St. Johns Community Center.


The St. Johns Bridge Buddies Educational Preschool Program is based on the philosophy that children develop & grow at their own rate. 
In order to grow & develop their senses a child must "play" by exploring & manipulating their environment. To enhance this experience, the classroom is set up in learning centers that enable children to explore different areas of development such as fine motor, socialization, pre-math, pre-reading & listening skills. Preschool for your child is the foundation for academic learning.

The St. Johns Bridge Buddies program follows the traditional school schedule with children enrolled September through early June.

  • Little Ones for 2 1/2 year olds (Children must be 2 by March 1) 
  • Preschool for 3 year olds (Children must be 3 by September 1)
