The staff and administration at Saint Bridget School in Framingham are busy getting ready for the 2023-2024 school year. Courtesy of a $100,000 grant from the Lynch Foundation, its Early Childhood Program – which offers Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten for students starting as early as age 2.9 years – is getting significant updates to its curriculum, classrooms and teacher support and development.

The Lynch Foundation’s Early Education Initiative is a comprehensive strategy to support the launch and redesign of early childhood programs across the Archdiocese of Boston Catholic Schools. This unique initiative has leveraged $3.6 million to date in private philanthropic investment toward the establishment of new high-quality early childhood classrooms and the redesign of existing early childhood classrooms.

As part of the grant, the Saint Bridget School Early Childhood Program will benefit from new classroom design, furniture and materials; refreshed, high-quality curricula; and professional development for teachers through the Summer Learning Institute for Teachers and monthly coaching and mentoring offerings.

“The Early Childhood team at Saint Bridget School is excited to become a part of the Lynch Foundation’s Early Education Initiative,” said Director of Early Ed, Lauren Nazzaro. “We strongly believe in the importance that early childhood education plays in setting the foundation for all learning. We are excited to have a partner that shares our beliefs in providing quality educational experiences to our youngest scholars.”

Saint Bridget School School has a six-decade legacy of providing high quality Catholic education to MetroWest families. Serving students ages 2.9 through Grade 8, the school is currently enrolling for the 2023-2024 school year. Prospective families are encouraged to reach out to Ms. Amanda Popp, Vice Principal for Admissions, to schedule a tour of the school. An Open House will be scheduled at the end of August 2023.
