At Little Bears we believe that high quality interactions, within a caring setting are vital for children to succeed. The routines and activities that make up the day in the setting are provided in ways that:  

  • Help each child to feel he/she is a valued member of the setting;
  • Develop children’s independence;
  • Develop children’s social skills, curiosity and love of learning;
  • Ensure the safety of each child; 
  • Help children to embed social skills;  
  • Provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning..

Sessions at Little Bears are organised into a mixture of Adult Led and Child Led learning opportunities. By working in this way we believe that the children will build their independence and confidence in small group and large group activities. We use careful observations of the children and monitor their interests to plan a variety of engaging and fun activities for them to learn through.
