Teddy Bear Corner provides a positive, home- like atmosphere where the principles of early childhood education are used to create age appropriate activities that reinforce a child’s natural curiosity and allow them to experience challenges and achievements, while bolstering his or her self-confidence. We believe that the best way for young children to learn is through play and exploration. Teachers coordinate a developmentally appropriate curriculum based on the interests and needs of the children as well as the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards while using “hands-on” activities and play to introduce the children to science, math, art, language, cooking, sensory, water play, music and movement.
