Teddy Bear Day Care Inc. promotes an environment with planned experiences geared to meet the needs of young children. By example we strive to instill a love of learning in each child. We offer the freedom to make choices and opportunities for a child to observe and explore things around him/her. We encourage independence and self-reliance in an effort to build each child’s self-esteem and self-confidence. We want each child to become a social human being learn the value of friendship increase his/her awareness of others and learn simple social skills and courtesies. We strive to mold each child into a healthy well-rounded individual by offering a variety of different experiences. We teach children how to handle their bodies how to use their large and small muscles and develop body coordination.

We feel that children need first hand experiences that encourage them to stretch and grow both physically and mentally. This is achieved through “hands on experience” learning. Each child receives a well-balanced program of learning activities that include enough variety to be both intellectually and emotionally stimulating. Learning is incorporated into every day play through our “learning centers”. We challenge each child’s creativity- not extensive paper-pencil tasks. We offer both structured and unstructured creative activities for each age group. While in our care it is our goal to develop the following in each child:

  • Social Skills
  • Art Expression
    *Exploration Skills
    *Positive Self-image
    *Language Skills
  • Communication Skills
    *Gross and Fine Motor Skills
    *Music and Rhythm
    *Development of basic reading science and math skills

The security and safety of each child is an utmost priority at Teddy Bear Day Care Inc. We have established methods which enable us to provide for the personal well-being of each child in our care. We are attentive to the specific needs of each individual while maintaining the welfare of the entire group. We care for children from infancy through pre-adolescence and a bonding between caregiver and child is established. We consider ourselves “parenting partners” in providing for the growth development and well being of each individual child.

We offer the freedom for your child(ren) to make choices and have a variety of opportunities. Each child has the ability to observe and explore the things around him/her to encourage independence and self-reliance.

Early Childhood education combines stimulating activities with loving attention to enable a young child to become emotionally secure socially competent and intellectually capable. As educators of young children we recognize our role in affecting how a child’s brain develops. We are committed to this crucial period of growth. We also believe that the exploration investigating and interaction that take place when children play is a critical part of development and learning. In order to support the play and development of young children and how they best learn Teddy Bear Day Care follows the Foundation to Academic Standards by which our local elementary schools abide. Our center strives to prepare your children for excellence in grade school while incorporating play into every day activities.
