That’s why we are committed to providing personalized care that takes into consideration dietary requirements and sleep schedules. Our top priority is to create a nurturing environment that supports your child’s health and well-being.

When it comes to dietary requirements, we work closely with parents to ensure that your child’s meals and snacks are tailored to their specific needs.

Sleep is crucial for a child’s overall well-being and development. We understand that every child has their own sleep schedule, and our caregivers work closely with you to create a consistent routine that aligns with your child’s individual needs. By following their established sleep patterns, we ensure that your child gets the rest they need to thrive during their time at our daycare.

Furthermore, personalized care extends beyond dietary requirements and sleep schedules. Our caregivers take the time to understand each child’s personality, interests, and developmental milestones. This enables us to provide tailored activities and attention that promote their growth and happiness in a meaningful way.


We believe that personalized care builds trust between our caregivers and parents. By understanding and meeting your child’s unique needs, we aim to create a supportive environment where both you and your little one feel comfortable and confident.

The Importance of a Key Person

At Little Bears Day Care, we understand that a child’s development is influenced by their home environment and preschool experiences. That’s why we assign each child a key person who acts as a bridge between these two important facets of their life. The key person plays a crucial role in supporting your child’s growth and ensuring they feel safe and supported in their new surroundings.

The key person at Little Bears Day Care is responsible for providing personalized care and attention to your child’s unique needs. They establish a deep connection and build a trusting relationship with your child, offering comfort and reassurance during their time at our preschool.

One of the key person’s primary responsibilities is to provide feedback after each session. They communicate with you, the parents, about your child’s activities, progress, and any challenges they may be facing. This open line of communication allows us to work collaboratively to meet your child’s needs and ensure their well-being.

Research has shown that a strong relationship with a key person can positively impact a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development. The key person observes and understands your child’s interests, preferences, and learning styles, tailoring activities and experiences to stimulate their curiosity and foster their individual strengths.

“The key person approach creates a secure base for young children, providing a sense of continuity and enabling them to thrive and explore the world around them.” – Dr. J. Stevenson, Child Development Expert

The role of the key person extends beyond the preschool setting. They collaborate with parents to understand and incorporate the child’s home routines, values, and cultural background into their daily experiences. By linking the home environment with the preschool environment, we create a seamless transition and a holistic approach to your child’s development.

By having a dedicated key person, your child will feel supported, cherished, and valued. This consistent and reliable relationship forms the foundation for their social and emotional growth, helping them develop resilience, self-confidence, and a positive attitude towards learning.

A Range of Activities to Encourage Learning

Little Bears Day Care offers a wide range of activities designed to promote play-based learning and encourage children’s growth. We believe that learning through play is a fundamental aspect of a child’s development, allowing them to explore, experiment, and discover the world around them in a fun and engaging way.

Our carefully chosen activities cater to the different interests and abilities of our little bear cubs. Whether it’s engaging in imaginative play or solving puzzles, each activity is designed to stimulate curiosity, foster creativity, and promote cognitive development.

One of the highlights of our program is outdoor play. We understand the importance of connecting with nature and the benefits it brings to a child’s overall well-being. Our outdoor play spaces provide opportunities for children to run, jump, climb, and explore the natural environment. From digging in the sandbox to splashing in water play areas, outdoor play allows children to develop gross motor skills, build resilience, and enhance their sensory experiences.

Outdoor play at Little Bears Day Care

In addition to our regular activities, we organize school visits to further enrich our children’s learning experiences. These visits allow them to explore new environments, interact with different educational settings, and learn from experts in various fields.

“Children learn best through play. It allows them to be actively involved in their learning, develop problem-solving skills, and foster their social and emotional growth.”
– Sarah Wilson, Preschool Teacher

Sample Activities:

  • Constructive play with building blocks and puzzles
  • Exploration and discovery with sensory bins
  • Dramatic play and role-playing activities
  • Art and craft projects to encourage creativity
  • Music and movement sessions for sensory integration
