About Us

It is with great pride that we offer our services to you and your family.  The original facility had a capacity for only 50 children.  Within 2 years Great Bridge Child Care expanded to be able to support 124 children serving the Great Bridge Primary school district.  Recognizing the growth of the Great Bridge area, in 1985 Karen Colston opened a second location on Fentress Road serving the Butts Road Primary school district, supporting another 137 children.

Our Philosophy:
Great Bridge Child Care is dedicated to providing quality education and care for the growth and development of children. The staff strives to meet the needs of your children by providing for individual differences through experiences that build foundations for the future academic skills and social relationships.

Our Educational program uses a “hands on” approach to learning.  Activity Centers feature games that motivate children to develop skills in language arts, music and movement, creative activities, problem solving, math and science.

Our day care program provides time for informal play and socialization.  Interest areas include indoor and outdoor activities, games, arts, crafts, cooking experiences and dramatic play.

To accommodate working parents, Great Bridge Child Care hours of operation are  from 6:30am to 6:00 pm at both of our locations.  Both locations offer preschool programs in the morning and after school activities in the afternoon.
