RISE is a language and literacy program that supplements preschool curriculum through books, music, art and movement.
RISE specializes in augmenting preschool programs that do not have access to literary services and where children are less likely to be exposed to reading or story time. Every week, RISE is offered at all four Bridge Project locations.
The RISE program was designed and continues to be refined utilizing state-of-the art research and practices, to address these very needs for children who are living in poverty or at-risk situations. The goals of the RISE program are to increase the ability of every child to do well in school and later in life, to provide exposure to rich literature with emphasis on vocabulary, fine and gross motor activities, art, music, and cognitive activities all based on specific age-appropriate pieces of literature.
