Our Teams & Facility
Collectively, the Newbridge Prep leadership team has over 100 years of professional school leadership experience. Newbridge Prep’s founders and directors have served as appointed members of the highly prestigious and highly selective Florida Department of Education Supplemental Educational Services Advisory Panel, school district administrators, lead teachers, curriculum specialists, and early childhood program directors. All leadership team members have professional education degrees (BA, MA, Ed.D), active teacher certifications/licenses obtained from the Florida Department of Education, and professional qualifications that surpass the State of Florida childcare credential requirements. You’ll also be surprised to learn that not only are Newbridge families supported by an open door, anytime you need something policy, but the founders/directors make themselves available at all times and provide their families with their personal cell numbers for 24/7 access!
At Newbridge Prep, we are committed to providing the highest quality learning environment for students, and it’s no mystery that a positive learning environment begins with effective teachers. For this reason, we employ highly qualified teachers who accept the responsibility of holding themselves accountable for the comprehensive development of their students. Newbridge Prep teachers are expected to meet exceptionally high standards unparalleled in nearly all other preschool settings. All of our credentialed staff members have extensive professional experience in the field of early childhood education and surpass the professional qualifications mandated by the Florida Department of Children and Families and the Palm Beach County Child Care Advisory Board. Newbridge Prep Faculty are required to participate in ongoing staff development activities concentrating on the areas of early childhood literacy development, curriculum training, early childhood best practices, brain research, differentiated instruction, and more! To maximize student safety, all of our staff members undergo the Jessica Lunsford Act Level II clearance process and agree to random, unannounced drug testing as a mandatory condition of employment. We are proud to boast that we have very little teacher turnover from year to year.
Nothing is more critical to families than the safety and well-being of their children. Newbridge Prep offers the safest possible preschool environment. The safety standards at Newbridge Prep were constructed with one guiding question. What would we, the owners and founders of Newbridge Prep, expect and want for our own children? The perimeter of our campus is fully fenced ensuring that there is a single point of entry for families and guests. Newbridge Prep is fortified with the most advanced technological safety features available. All interior and exterior areas are continuously monitored by a highly-sophisticated camera surveillance system. Admission into the facility, student check-in, and student sign-out are managed with the most technologically advanced electronic sign-in and sign-out software system. Our exterior play areas are equipped with high-tech rubber floor covering and specially designed playground equipment to keep playtime fun and accident free. Newbridge Prep is professionally cleaned each and every day. The name NEWBRIDGE PREP is synonymous with safety
The Newbridge Prep campus consists of a brand new 11,000 square foot building that sits on a beautifully landscaped one acre parcel in Western Palm Beach County. The Newbridge Prep classrooms are extraordinarily welcoming and designed to keep children and parents smiling. The average size of each classroom is over 800 square feet, affording children ample room for learning, exploration, and play. All classrooms are equipped with generously sized windows, a private bathroom, a natural spring water cooler, and a convenient exterior door for playground access. Our covered patio play areas, playground, field, bike path and ball court are designed with toddlers and preschoolers in mind and are physically and developmentally appropriate for that age group. Newbridge Prep has a high-tech media center stocked with student computers, a smart board, a high definition projector, digital media, a rich literacy collection, and much more! Even the furniture at Newbridge Prep was custom made right here in the USA by a local furniture maker to maximize student safety. Newbridge Prep is proud to do its part in environmental conservation. All rooms have motion activated light systems and energy efficient light bulbs. The lavatory facilities throughout the school have water efficient toilets and sinks, and Newbridge has a school-wide recycling program that depends on collaborative participation by parents, faculty, and students.
Newbridge Prep is located on the east side of Highway 441 approximately 1 mile south of Lake Worth Road. Newbridge Prep’s location was purposely sought out because of its close proximity to all key areas of Western Palm Beach County. Best of all, the school consist of a standalone building that is easy to access and perfectly placed outside of the hustle and bustle that surrounds most other student centers in Palm Beach County. Accessibility to the facility is an absolute breeze any time of day.
