Thank you for visiting Little Bear Child Development Center online.  Our goal at Little Bear is to nurture the "whole child" in areas of physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development. Little Bear is committed to your child.

Children at Little Bear discover that learning is fun. We provide a variety of activities that are developmentally appropriate and recognize the individual needs of children, while encouraging them to make new friends and build strong relationships.  Teacher assisted and directed activities encourage the children to be independent thinkers and life long learners.
