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.
