The Little Bridges staff know that this is a very important time for your children. We are here to guide and encourage all children in a positive, Christian atmosphere – where all students can grow developmentally, socially and educationally. Our goal is for each child to know that they are unique, special and loved. We celebrate each child’s distinctive traits and abilities for whom God has made them to be.
Each member of the Little Bridges staff is highly qualified, meeting or exceeding the licensing standards established by the state of California in selected course work as well as experience working with young children. Each staff member is fingerprinted and cleared with Community Care Licensing prior to beginning work in the classroom.
Little Bridges provides a safe and supportive environment where your child can grow and explore. We believe in partnering with parents and truly view all our families here as extended Little Bridges family.
As the Director of Little Bridges, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you. I am so proud of our quality staff and excellent program here. From the infant room to our school age program, our high standards mixed with a loving Christian environment make Little Bridges a vey special place!
I am the mother of four boys, ages 33, 31, 18 and 17. My husband and I, along with our youngest son and dog, live right here in San Ramon and I love this community. Our family attends Canyon Creek Church and I am part of their administration staff. The church sees Little Bridges as a ministry to this community and I feel so blessed to be a part of it.
I have been working with children for over 30 years and education is my passion. I have a Bachelors Degree from Pacific Oaks University in Human Development with a emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I also have a California Teaching Credential for grades kindergarten through 12th grades and have been a teacher in the public school system. I have taught students from preschool to sixth grade and have been a Director for over 20 years.
When not at work, I enjoy riding my road bike with my husband (which you can usually find parked in my office for a quick lunch ride), I love watching any sports, have a passion for wine tasting and love cooking using herbs grown in my garden.
I believe in open communication and welcome hearing your opinions and ideas. My goal at Little Bridges is to provide a safe and positive environment for the children and teachers – the type of atmosphere that promotes cooperative learning, perseverance, industry, independence and responsibility.
Here’s to a great 2017-2018 school year!
Welcome to Little Bridges – we are so excited to have your family join our school and be part of this amazing journey in your child’s life. My name is Yumi and I am the assistant director at Little Bridges. I have had the honor of helping open this school and working with Ms. Jacque for the past 12 years.
I have a BA in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University and a multiple subject teaching credential. I have taught from toddlers all the way up to 6th grade as well as children with special needs in a specialized preschool. I have been in a director/administrative role for over ten years.
My husband and I live in Dublin and keep busy with our two children and dog. I have a 4 year-old son, who attends Little Bridges, and a 7 year-old daughter starting 1st grade this fall. When I have some time to myself, I love being active, cooking, and cheering for the Giants and Raiders.
I am so excited for this upcoming year and look forward to getting to know your family. Our doors are always open and we look forward to a partnership with you in your child growing and blossoming at Little Bridges.
