Metairie Bridge Community

With the knowledge that the first three years of life are so important to brain development, the preschool classroom is designed to provide the two year old with sensorial development of visual discrimination of size, shape and colors, sound discrimination, language development, and introduction to mathematics. The classrooms also have areas for art expression and daily living skills (pouring, spooning, cleaning). While there is much intellectual stimulation, our emphasis is always on nurture of each child’s uniqueness. Singing, signing, stories, music and  movement are all part of the preschooler’s days. Frequent cooking projects are built into our curriculum. Social skills continue to be developed, as is the ongoing acquisition of verbal skills.

Great emphasis is placed on recognizing, respecting, and appropriately expressing feelings. Our practical life skills are refined as children learn grace and courtesy manners during lunch.  Children learn to push their chairs back under the table, scrape their plates, and help clean the classroom. Friends are a great part of the children’s days. Outside play provides many opportunities for developing gross motor skills and for social interaction, too. We recognize the importance and privilege we have in the loving nurture of these precious children. Hugs, smiles, and love are a part of every child’s day.

 

Bonnie Toups
Bridge Community Directress

Bonnie Toups brings her sparkling smile and nurturing spirit with her to Kinder Haus. She is crossed trained to work everywhere in our school. An extremely rare and valuable gift! Mrs. Bonnie obtained her Montessori Certification in August, 2005 through North American Progressive Montessori. Her skill is obvious and much attributed to natural talent, many years of child care experience and love of children. Mrs. Bonnie says, “I hopes her influence on the children’s lives she touches helps them to become confident, independent, respectful and most of all a caring human being. I really believe this is what I was meant to do with my life; to share the love that I have for children with lot’s of love, hugs and kisses!”

Thank you Bonnie for your professionalism, dedication, and positive attitude.
