Toddler Bridge

Welcome to St. Matthew's Toddler Bridge!

The St. Matthew’s Toddler Bridge Program is for children who will be age-eligible for preschool the following school year. This experience provides a safe and positive bridge from a parent-toddler program to the greater independence of preschool. Bridge classes provide young children the opportunity to build confidence, gain valuable social interaction skills, and cultivate a positive self-image through the support of our experienced teachers. The curriculum includes hands-on experiences including art activities, stories, music, movement, and outdoor play. We encourage families to join the Toddler Bridge Program to supplement, not replace, their Parent-Toddler class!

Classes meet from 1:20 to 3:20 in the St. Matthew's Preschool.

Parents often ask if participation in Toddler Bridge is a prerequisite for admission to St. Matthew’s Parish School. It is not. The Bridge Program is an auxiliary program of St. Matthew’s and admission to the Parish School is separate and distinct. We encourage parents who are interested in admission to the school to submit an application in the Fall. Further information is available in the Admission section of the school website.
