Little Bear Daycare is one of the best Daycare my children have ever been registered too. The staff and Owners are very friendly and polite. My children get all the attention they need. Little Bear Daycare is not only interested in giving services to my children but teach new things everyday that will help them later on in life. I strongly recommend this Daycare to anyone in need of child services.
