Mission: The Bridges preschool program at The Therapy Place is a holistic, therapeutic approach to child development. We employ the skills and expertise of physical, occupational, and speech therapists, as well as educators, parents, and other staff. The main goal of Bridges is to encourage independence, cognitive development, and socialization. We believe in using a transdisciplinary approach to meet the individual needs of the whole child.
Routine: The routine of Bridges is centered around independence. Children are constantly learning from their environment. Some children may need assistance as we continue to teach gross and fine motor, and communication skills necessary for independence. We encourage learning independently by allowing time in the day for children to make choices and explore their environment. The other main focus is socialization. Children not only learn from the staff, but the other children in the program as well. We encourage creativity, play, and communication with peers. Throughout the day the children participate in music, art, and other cognitive development skills like learning colors, shapes, and writing.
