ROSELLE PARK, NJ - A new business was welcomed in got Roselle Park this past weekend as A Child’s Experience childcare services held their grand opening inviting officials and the public a look inside of their new facility.

A Child’s Experience is a learning center that offers specialized family-based childcare services for infants, toddlers, and school-age children in and around the area. Whether you simply want to prepare your little learners for formal schooling or wish to give them other avenues to learn from, they can provide what you need.

An ambitious mother of three, Shatarra Bridges is the founder and owner of A Child’s Experience. The childcare facility was born out of Bridges lifelong love and value of family as well as her keen ability to discern how children can thrive.

As a high schooler of just 16 years old, Bridges started her first job caring for children. This early experience would uncover what would be her life-long passion: helping children learn, grow, and love. Over the course of the next 20 years, she gained hands-on experience in three of the largest childcare corporations in America. Discerning not only the best practices of keeping children safe and cared for, Bridges combined her heart and business acumen to lay the groundwork for her dream called A Child’s Experience.

In April 2017, after months of planning and years of preparation, Bridges received her approval to lease what she said is the perfect building. Situated in an ideal location with easy commuting access for parents, A Child’s Experience accommodates up to 75 children. 

Highlights from the event can be viewed below.

The center is located at 258 W Webster Avenue in Roselle Park. They can be contacted at (908)671-5300 or by e-mail at
