Welcome to Prep

Finding the perfect learning environment for your child is as much about instinct as educational accomplishment. When you find the right school, it just instinctively feels right. Which is exactly the way you will feel when you experience the friendly and nurturing atmosphere at Bridgewater Preparatory Department.

Success and happiness go hand in hand.

When seen through a young person’s eyes, the world is a place of excitement and wonder.
It shines brightly with a light that will illuminate the rest of their lives. We see it that way too. We give children the learning tools and the space they need to discover the world their way, allowing them to flourish as they develop their individual abilities.

We share your ambition for your children. We are proud of their achievements. But like you, we are equally focused on their happiness; it is a pleasure to see them grow into true individuals, guided and enthused by our committed and supremely qualified staff.
