Our commitment to you

At Bear Hugs we understand that parents want nothing more than the reassurance that   their child will receive the very best care, individual attention and structure that will   allow them the opportunity to develop and flourish in a caring and supportive   environment. Our practitioners are dedicated to establishing a stimulating, creative   and  joyful environment for children to play learn and grow together.

Our mission

We believe that every child that comes through our doors is entitled to a balanced   curriculum, one to one attention and engagement, and an inclusive environment that   will instill in them the core values and learning required to successfully integrate into   the next steps in their education once they graduate from preschool.

Each child is assigned a dedicated key person who’s role is to establish the building   blocks for their learning as well as building a strong relationship with each parent through daily feedback, noting activities, meals eaten and toilet schedule. The key person system is in place to allow a deeper understanding of your child’s development and individual needs.

We strive to provide a range of exciting and stimulating indoor and outdoor facilities to   make sure your child is offered the very best development in a safe and friendly environment.

Learning & Education

Here at Bear Hugs we importance of every step your child takes on their learning journey and we pride ourselves on our commitment to providing the very best in a broad and balanced curriculum. Our daily planning, targeted activities and learning style are all centered around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which follows the seven areas of learning which are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication & Language
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding The World
  • Physical Development
  • Expressive Arts & Design
  • Literacy

Through this we strive for every child to achieve their full potential and beyond, gaining the most from the time they spend with us.
