Put theory into practice while nurturing curious minds and kind hearts. At London Bridge we value lifelong learning, development and collaboration.

Throughout this whole experience I was fully supported by the Educator, my mentor, and my Director. I felt I was an equal in every aspect. I was given program time and assistance with building my portfolio, as well as creating invitations for the children. Looking back, this is an experience I will never forget.

As a recent grad, the London Bridge Summer Internship Program gave me a positive start to my career as an Early Childhood Educator. In 2008 I was welcomed to the company as a student intern which quickly led to a permanent position. Now six and half years later I have had the opportunities to succeed and become a part of the Leadership Team as a Centre Program Supervisor. Let London Bridge be a partner in your learning!
