When selecting a preschool, parents seek a safe, secure place where their child’s unique talents and gifts can be developed; a nurturing setting with dedicated teachers to prepare their child for a lifetime of learning. Finding the preschool that’s right for your child can be confusing.
Bridges Early Learning Center can help. We offer parents a one-on-one “Discovery Session,” a thirty-minute interview which can help identify your child’s unique needs and enable you to make an informed choice.
Call Director Brenda Neely at 772.778.5981 to schedule a Discovery Session.
Let us tell you more
about Bridges ELC.
Bridges Early Learning Center in Vero Beach, Florida, provides an early childhood development program for children ages 6 weeks - 9 years.
We create a warm and friendly environment, with dedicated teachers who genuinely love children and a program that helps children grow emotionally, cognitively, socially, and physically. We believe that young children learn best through play in age-appropriate activities. We move each child along according to his/her pace and interests. We don’t push them. We walk with them. That’s our secret to development.
As a result of our environment, our teachers, and our unique program, we graduate students who know how to learn, work, and play with others - students who are prepared to "cross the bridge" into a lifetime of beneficial learning.
While some preschools close for the summer months, Bridges ELC's program is offered year-round, making us the ideal choice for parents who have work responsibilities.
Bridges ELC is conveniently located one stoplight south of the intersection of Route 60 and 27th Avenue, just south of 16th Street. (Click to see a map.) We're on the southern end of The Emerson Center's campus.

We regularly partner with area agencies and organizations to provide services for children facing special needs. We are sensitive to family budgets, so we seek out free and low-cost services, whether it be speech therapists, tutors, eye exams, or whatever. If you think your child may have an unaddressed need, speak up. We're here to help.
What a Difference You Can Make.
We're looking for a few good supporters.
Frequently, we are asked to help families with genuine financial needs to cover some of the tuition expenses so their deserving children can enroll at Bridges Early Learning Center. Because of our unique non-profit status,* at times, we can find donors who are willing to help.
If you would consider funding scholarships for Bridges students, please contact our Director at 772.778.5981 or by email at BridgesELC@bellsouth.net. If you are in need of financial assistance, let us know as well. We work with families in need to find solutions.
