Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We create a structured family environment that is so lacking in our society today. As parents, we understand the challenges of the working adult and will be there to meet your childcare needs. We will work with local business leaders to have access to the latest equipment, technology and resources for our children and parents. We have three young children of our own and will employ only those individuals who have a heart and a love for children. We have gained extensive experience with childcare by working in our church. We serve on both the Deacon and Church Boards.

We are a Christian-centered, community-driven company. We believe children are a gift from God and should be treated as such. They should be listened to attentively with lots of enthusiasm and respect. When we say your child is the center of our world - we really mean it. Children should be loved and cuddled with warmth and tenderness. They should be disciplined with firmness, consistency and understanding. They also should be given specific guidelines for proper behavior.

At Papa Bear's your child is truly the center of our world.
