Jenn's Little Bears serves the families and children of the Western Communities offering a "learning through play" environment. Recent studies now tell us that the first six years of a child´s life are critical for learning. Our centre will offer children the space and materials to stimulate their social, intellectual and physical development. Young children will move through various stages of play from infants involved in solitary play to five year olds being involved in cooperative and group play scenarios. Our centre will provide children the space to develop these social skills with each other. Both the infant toddler centre and the preschool/daycare program have a wide range of activities and a great balance of quiet and active, individual and group and free and planned activities. Jenn's Little Bears will provide the following important aspects to our environment for every child;
      · A safe and nurturing environment
      · Valuing and respecting diversity
      · Open ended, free choice and developmentally appropriate activities
      · Partnerships with families
      · Modeling appropriate personal and professional behavior

Jenn's Little Bears will help each individual child develop the skills they need to succeed in kindergarten both socially and academically.
