St Heliers Early Childcare Centre
Infant Toddler & Preschool
St Heliers Childcare was the first Bear Park to be established in 1986 and with this comes a long sense of history and pride. The two Centre houses lie side by side and have been modified to foster that feeling of home away from home.
Bear Park strongly values the importance of the environment and so has taken care to promote the various rooms in becoming rich intimate spaces for the children to be engaged in various learning situations. This enables children to express themselves in a variety of ways and allows opportunities for children’s learning to be enhanced with nurturing teachers offering support and guidance when working alongside them.
A wide range of natural and recycled materials allow children to learn through open-ended materials and explore in ways that have meaning to them. Our spacious shaded outdoor environments are complemented by well-established gardens that invite the children to explore, create and imagine.
The Nursery is licensed for 20 children aged 3 months to 2 years of age. The teaching team prides themselves in creating warm and nurturing relationships with both the children and their families.
The Preschool is licensed for 40 children aged 2 to 5 years of age. We aspire to foster competent learners who are confident to share their ideas in a variety of group learning situations.
