Care Bear Learning Center will focus on the developmental needs of a child as a
total person – his/her social growth, emotional growth, physical growth and
cognitive growth. We offer programs to enhance these growths by providing a
variety of stimulating activities designed to meet the needs of the children. We
organize activities that introduce students to experiences with art, science,
music, stories and movement. Our programs are child centered reflecting the
interests of each child in the classroom.
The programs are oriented to capitalize on the child’s interest and encourage
active learning to develop curiosity, critical thinking and problem-solving
skills. Each child is allowed to explore and learn at their own pace in a safe
and secure environment without fear of failure. There is emphasis on language
development, perceptual discrimination, cognition and motor coordination. We aim
to create a supportive and caring atmosphere where a typical child could
interact with a child of different ability, can learn more about each other,
accept their sameness and differences, respect each other and develop
responsibility for their behavior.
