About Us

Teddy Bears Children’s Center is a state and City of San Ramon licensed preschool serving ages 18 months through 6 years. We provide a happy, growth oriented environment bolstered by consistency. The majority of our staff has been with us for more than 10 years with several approaching 20 years. Teddy Bears Children’s Center has been in the same location since 1989.


Our Philosophy of Learning

In a caring and positive atmosphere, we seek to create a warm and happy place for children of preschool age to learn. As we bridge the gap from the home to school, we guide the children to a continuing positive self-image while building social skills in a school setting.

Sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills are introduced through materials and activities which are both child centered and teacher directed. Work is planned which emphasizes the process rather than the product, fostering a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Based upon the theory that children learn through play, classroom routines encourage active involvement, meaningful experimentation and reinforcement through repetition. Schedules are designed which balance structure and free choice, as well as active and quiet times.

Recognizing that a children grow in predictable stages, we treat each child as an individual, working from the level each child has attained and moving toward the next stage a step at a time. We teach a love of learning by allowing children to experience their own state of development and helping them to feel success without pressure.

Skills are easily learned when the motivation is there. The most important ingredients we attempt to instill are an excitement about and an enthusiasm for learning.

“I like me!” ……………………………………………Confidence in one’s self
“I can do it!”…………………………………………...Learning how to learn
“Gee Whiz!”…………………………………………...The excitement from understanding

Our goal is to have the child leave the early years with a strong sense of security, a healthy feeling of self-esteem and an excitement of living and learning.
