Preparation for Kindergarten

Early Learning Center

Ages: 2.9 years- 5 years
The preschool years are vital in developing skills needed to be successful later in life. Our center provides meaningful experiences which encourage development in all areas. The children's interests lead the teachers in designing activities which actively involve them in the learning process.

Our program builds a solid foundation of strong social/emotional skills which then transitions naturally into developmentally appropriate activities in math, science, language, social studies and the arts. Children leave Little Bear confidant and ready to take on the adventures of kindergarten.

We believe in the power and importance of play for the healthy growth and development of children. We strive to promote learning in fun, creative and dynamic ways that appeal to all styles and types of learners. In the classroom we offer multiple learning centers which encourage development in all areas (Social Emotional, Physical, Language, and Cognitive). We guide the children through experiencing the activities that appeal to them. This supports them to develop autonomy and sets the pace for positive learning ventures.
