Join the Bradley Bear's ALS Stompers Team!

This October, in honor of a dear colleague--Wimala Amerasinghe we will be walking to raising funds for ALS research.  Mrs. Amerasinghe taught hundreds of children over her 30 years spent at BHPCNS.  She was and still is a very regal woman with a quick wit and great sense of humour AND a great teacher!  While Mrs. Amerasinghe is handling her diagnosis of ALS with grace and dignity, the disease has taken a tremendous toll on her and her family.  Please join our team or making donation to help others afflicted with this disease.  Click here for our ALS fundraising page.

BHPCNS Parent Testimonials.


"All three of my children went to Bradley Hills. I cannot thank the faculty and staff enough for their professionalism and genuine love of caring for young children. BH engages in very effective combination of play and structured teaching to educate children. The results I have seen speak for themselves. The kids I have known, including my own, are happy, consistently excited to learn, and well prepared for kindergarten. I am impressed particularly with BH's commitment to improving and evolving year after year. I would recommend BH without hesitation." -Parent of a 5 year old and 3 graduates
