The daily routine involves a balance of both indoor and outdoor play, large and small group activities, free-play, and rest times. KinderBear Daycare focuses on creating play-based, active learning through thoughtfully planned environments and experiences. A wide variety of activities that involve all of the learning domains (social-emotion, physical, language, and cognitive) are provided in order to develop the whole child development of the whole child while using best practices for child care. The play-based program planning is guided by the childrens interests, creating a fun, active and inventive learning environment. Our natural playground allows children to develop their gross motor skills and create new ways to play on natural materials. Children attending KinderBear Daycare are given opportunities to learn and grow through play along with many other children of varying ages and developmental levels.
