Waiting List/Pre-Registration Form

"They say it takes a village, and Little Bear became part of our 'village.' We not only received quality care, but we gained new friends."
~ Emily Hindle
"My son’s favorite parts of the day include arts and crafts, circle time, outdoor play with his friends and free choice time (getting to choose which activity he wants to do). Often times when I pick him up he asks if he can stay for a few more minutes! "
~ The Steed Family
"The teachers are well educated about early child development. They’re TEACHERS and not babysitters. As a new mom, I sometimes learn more from them than my kiddo does. Little Bear gives us peace of mind; it’s like dropping her off with family…except we know she’s learning when she’s there, vs. watching tv."
~The Fallon Family

Song, Story and Dance Time
with Christina Svane

From: The Blue Guitar, Easthampton
Once a week, each classroom of children will walk to The Blue Guitar Studio directly behind Little Bear's facility. Christina Svane works with each class one hour a week, engaging them in creative movement and musical exploration. Combining singing, dancing and storytelling, Christina's classes help children develop in body, mind, imagination and awareness of their connection to nature, and all of life.

This is what Miss Christie has to say about her experience working with the children at Little Bear:
What I try to give the children in my weekly sessions is a sense of being on an adventure together, in the landscape of the body, voice and imagination. They have to find the balance between my directing them from the outside, and their creative impulses directing them from the inside. I believe that the great challenge in life is how to remain inwardly free in whatever structure you're working in, and improvisation is the best way I know of exercising that inner freedom. It is constantly inspiring to me how much the LBLC team helps the children to be self-aware, and to articulate their feelings and their needs. I am constantly learning from them!
