About Our School

About Our School

We started from a dream of a little girl who never thought she’d amount to anything, because of so many barriers that were left as gaps. That was until she got older and had three amazing kids of her own and she bridged and crossed everyone of them one by one. Starting Building Bridges Learning Academy is very important to me for so many reasons. One being to help educate the community on social and emotional learning to better their kids’ education. Kids need to know that their education and mental health are top priority from the day they are born. That is how Building Bridges Learning Academy came to existence.

What Makes Us the Best Choice


We prioritize the safety and well-being of every child entrusted to our care. Our facility is designed to provide a secure environment, and our staff undergo rigorous training in safety protocols to ensure a secure and nurturing space for children to learn and grow.

Nurturing Environment

We believe in creating a nurturing environment where every child feels valued, supported, and encouraged to explore their interests and abilities. Our caregivers are dedicated to fostering a sense of belonging and emotional security for each child in our care.

Diversity and Inclusion

We celebrate diversity and promote inclusivity in our daycare community. We respect and embrace the unique backgrounds, cultures, and abilities of all children and families, creating an enriching environment that fosters empathy, understanding, and mutual respect.

Respect for Individuality

We honor and respect the unique strengths, interests, and developmental needs of each child. Our approach is child-centered, allowing children to learn and grow at their own pace while receiving personalized attention and support from caring and qualified educators.

Dr. Barnes and her team has been very welcoming. The moment I reached out to inquire about daycare I received positive energy through the conversation. Too receive positive vibes before meeting someone in person is a plus for me. As a mother, I want to know that my child is in good hands and positive spirits and that’s exactly what I received from Building Bridges Learning Academy.
