About Bradley Schools

The original Bradley School was Wheeler Pines, founded in 1985, and now there are a total of three Bradley Schools that are ready to welcome you and your family. This educational environment believes every child is special, a unique miracle of mind, body, and spirit. Its mission is to create a culture of caring that supports individual creativity, instills life-long learning, and promotes confidence in young learners. Bradley Schools aims to provide a nurturing environment similar to home. This comforting atmosphere encourages your little ones to develop independence, self-awareness, an appreciation for diversity, and compassion for others. They believe children learn best through play, which is why they provide fun-filled educational environments that inspire children to learn and grow each and every day.
