We are open term time only Monday 9.00am-12.30pm Tuesdays,Wednesday and Thursdays 9-3pm.
Friday mornings are for our 3+ Children where we play games whilst learning phonic sounds.
These sessions are preparing for your child for school where games and development of the phonic sound are played. 9am-1130pm Lunch till 12.30pm
We aim to promote learning through play in a safe and nurturing environment. Children that come to Teddy Bears develop socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually and are well prepared for compulsory education. We pride ourselves on developing each child’s confidence and self-esteem as well as understanding each child as an individual.
Children can enjoy our morning sessions in which they can take part in practical activities, songs/musical instruments, dance, nursery rhymes, circle time, adult lead table activities, self selection activities, free flow indoor/outdoor play and story time. We are very fortunate that links with the community mean that we are able to offer additional activities such as mini trail blazers that engage with children's phyiscal development. Every other wednesday we learn about growing and planting in gardening sessions. Once a term on a thursday afternoon we have drama sessions that encourage the children's imaginations, in addition we have sessions with music with mummy twice a term. This is open to all children aged between 2 and 5.
