Everything about this daycare has been thought of and put together with love and attention to detail. From the beautiful town of Reggio-Emilia Italy, I have been so fortunate to visit, I am slowly piecing together my North American version of their philosophies. All three centres have very unique and special pieces I have either hand made or collected in my travels! I dream of visiting Sweden, Switzerland, Norway and even Australia to share our different thoughts on Pedagogy and learn from their different styles of inquiry.
Thankfully I have THE “Handiest Husband” on the planet that helped turn my vision into a reality! Derek and I both work for Little Bears full time. I “think it” he “builds it!” Situated on nearly 2 acres of land, with 3 huge fenced outdoor play areas, this center is for those of us parents who are wanting more for our children! Allowing our children the luxury of being in nature for most of the day Taught by certified Early Childhood Educators, and in a natural Environment surrounded by trees and wildlife…what more could we want for our children?
Lexie’s Little Bears is very much like the childhood space I grew up in. There is lots of room to move, run, dance, skip, jump, climb and just be. The children get to explore the forest every day! We plant a garden every spring and watch it grow us vegetables, flowers, and herbs. The children learn how to care for the gardens and how to keep the plants healthy.
Have you seen the “Secret Forest stage?” Marie our Spanish Instructor loves to do her classes in this special hidden area away from the bustle of the main play space! It also allows the educators to take small groups to the stage for reading, quiet times and yoga!
Your children will also be loved and supported by certified Early Childhood Educators and Infant Toddler Educators in a natural safe environment surrounded by forests and wildlife…what more could we want for our children?
