A Foundation that will Last a Lifetime!

Today, in the wake of alarming trends in public schools, parents are becoming increasingly concerned about their children’s education. Many years ago we decided to address this situation and began the Great Bridge Christian Academy Preschool.  Since then, hundreds of children have completed our excellent academic Preschool program.




Our hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities target all aspects of early childhood development, while emphasizing the love of Jesus Christ. The exposure children receive to Bible, phonics, numbers, art, music and movement, books and reading, physical education, and science, provides a wealth of experiences for the children on which to build a solid educational foundation. Our goal is to provide the highest quality program where loving kindness, gentleness, consistency, safety, and security are of utmost importance.



Our commitment to high standards is also reflected in the people who work at GBCA. Our teachers are experienced and receive ongoing training. We nurture the lasting bonds that develop between our faculty and families. Everyone that is employed by GBCA has been fingerprinted and background checked.


Spiritual Approach

Our teachers include a daily Bible lesson, including songs, Bible stories, and scripture verses. Teachers also use this time to present life application lessons that connect to children’s lives in a meaningful, age-appropriate way. In all of our curriculum, we pray that God will be perceived as our Creator and in control of our lives and the universe.



Children learn through play! GBCA is currently rebuilding our preschool playground. During adverse weather conditions, the children play in the gymnasium. The teachers monitor all aspects of playground safety, and the equipment is continuously monitored to make certain that it is safe and properly maintained.


Enrollment Age Requirements

The birthdate deadlines for our school year are as follows:

  • PK3 – Children must be 3 and potty trained before starting.
  • PK4 – Children must be 4 on or before September 30th to enter our 4’s program.

Discipline & Behavior Management

Praise and positive reinforcement are effective methods of the behavior management of children. When children receive positive, non-violent, and understanding interactions from adults and others, they develop good self-concepts, problem solving abilities, and self-discipline. GBCA also uses time-out when a child does not respond to positive reinforcements. Numerous positive reinforcements are in place within each classroom.
