Waiting List/Pre-Registration Form

"As first time parents, it is wonderful to be able to talk to experienced caregivers and get tips and advice. You feel like you have a good network to support you if you have any concerns. When we first started, they made the transition as smooth as possible."
~ The Stasinos 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
"Our son gets a lot of appropriate peer interaction every day, and he learns good behavior from older kids."

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.
