About Red Bridge Preschool

Located just 10 miles north of Stillwater, MN, Red Bridge is a small school and class sizes never exceed eighteen students. We have the time and the staff to provide for individual student and family needs.  We obtain great joy in mentoring the social, academic and personal growth of each child.

Life in the idyllic village of Marine on Saint Croix is great fun for a preschooler. Red Bridge children are able to walk just a few blocks to visit our neighbors at the post office, fire station, General Store, Marine Elementary and more. They also have not one, but two spectacular foot bridges over a stream to enjoy the four beautiful seasons on display in Minnesota.

Red Bridge has dedicated staff members who are passionate about early childhood education as it applies to our specific students.  We all continue our training beyond what is required and each tends to have special areas of interest bringing a nice sense of balance to the school.

Red Bridge is a part of Christ Lutheran Church.  Again and again the church body and the church staff have demonstrated their support of the school and are committed to providing this ministry.

Red Bridge prepares children for a lifetime of learning adventures.  We teach pre-kindergarten academic and social skills.   Our students go to kindergarten feeling confident, loving school and ready to continue learning.
