Baby Bears Family Daycare is a family child care centre located in the Westshore of Victoria BC operated out of my home. The primary goal of my “Baby Bears Daycare” is to provide a safe and nurturing care in a developmentally appropriate setting for your child. My program offers a mixed age group, which benefits both younger and older children. Positive social behavior such as sharing, taking turns, and helpfulness are encouraged. The older children have more opportunities to practice leadership skills, and younger children become involved in more complex forms of pretend play. I find children are drawn to older children they can look up to. Older children also learn to be more confident.
