Programs, RATES & resources

We offer programs for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

Overview

The programs at Bridges daycare are specially designed with you in mind. From our electronic registration to our daily communications. We want you to find convenience and feel like you are a part of your child’s day. Bridges daycare is committed to creating a safe, warm, loving environment for children where they can learn and grow physically, emotionally, creatively, intellectually, and socially at their own pace.

meal Services

Outside of our educational programs, we also provide a meal service for every age group, which includes two snacks, breakfast, and lunch. We make any accommodations for food allergies, dietary restrictions, and infant feeding schedules. For infants, Bridges is breastfeeding friendly and we will work directly with mothers to accommodate any child’s feeding schedule. At the initiation of our relationship, we learn about your child’s unique needs and communicate this information to your child’s teacher to provide you and your child the best tailored daycare experience.

Our nutritional plans have been reviewed and approved according to Indiana licensure and we give students the opportunity to explore new and healthy foods. We create meal options to the best of our ability that provide alternatives when there are dietary restrictions and/or food allergies.

Typical Day

A typical day for children at Bridges begins with a healthy breakfast followed by our morning meeting and circle time. After group play, we break for our first snack of the day. The rest of the morning is full of hands on center learning and outdoor play. Next, children will eat lunch and then get some rest time to recoup for the afternoon. Once they’re refueled, it’s time for more hands on center learning and outdoor play, followed by one more snack before the end of the day.

Safety Procedures

COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES: All children 2 years and older are required to wear a mask until the mandate is released. We perform daily temperature checks, increased sanitization on commonly used items, and offer contactless pick-up and drop-off. There is also a COVID survey that every party must answer.

For added safety precautions, parents will utilize the Brightwheel app to check their child in and out. Only registered and approved parties can pick up and check out the child(s).
