“The greatest benefits that we’ve received are a fantastic preschool and toddler education for our son, a caring community to belong to, and the knowledge that when we are at work our son is in a place where he is happy, engaged and cared for by people that love him”
~ The Steed Family
"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
"My son has grown tremendously since he has been at Little Bear. We have a great rapport with the staff with open communication. The teachers really adapt to my child’s need as much as possible. They are very caring and loving and we can see they are dedicated and committed to all the children."
~ Amanda Olzsak

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.
