Connecting children to a lifetime commitment of learning and love for Jesus.

Providing year-round care for children 8 weeks to 12 years of age

StartingPoint Academy is hiring! We are also accepting 4 year olds for our Junior Kindergarten preschool program.


Our Early Childhood Education Programs (which are a ministry of BridgePoint Church) offer an engaging, nurturing and creative environment where children will grow on their level. We are passionate about developing the whole child, supporting the entire family and inspiring a lifetime commitment to learning.

Through our actions, we show the love of Jesus Christ to families in Gloucester, VA.

What We Offer

We provide care for children 8 weeks to 11 years of age year round.  Our curriculum is simple – introduce children to the joy of learning and the rewards of a job well done. 

With age-appropriate content, classic books, recitation, repetition, music, art, poetry, Bible and so much more your child will have a strong foundation to build upon.


Infants & Toddlers

Social, emotional language and cognitive learning are key during this time. We will introduce age appropriate motor skills, games, and colors through group and individual play. We will build the foundations of language and communication.

TWO Year Olds

While nurturing the student’s imagination through classic books and learning stations, our teachers will focus on building language, cognitive development, social-emotional, fine motor and gross motor skills.

3 & 4 year olds

Our curriculum supports students’ cognitive, social-emotional, spiritual, and physical growth. Students will have daily opportunities to explore and learn through a variety of learning experiences.

Before & after Care

We are able to serve families in the Botetourt and Petsworth school districts. The county buses pick up and drop off students daily. While here, the children receive extra help on homework and assignments as well as Bible lessons and prayer.

We serve the Bethel school district with a 14-passenger bus.

We’d love to meet you and for you to get a chance to meet the wonderful folks who invest in our children, daily! To schedule your tour please follow the prompts below:
