Buxton, ME 04093 | (207) 298-9135

The philosophy of KereBear Child Care Center is to provide a developmentally appropriate program for young children that fosters the whole child concept, respects each child as an individual and stimulates a child’s natural interest in and enjoyment of learning. Our long-term program goals include helping children: To become creative and independent thinkers. To feel competent, productive and self-reliant by fostering good self-esteem and a sense of self-worth. To develop a sense of responsibility for their own mental and physical health. To understand that they are a part of a diverse, multicultural global community and that their actions influence the quality of that community. To foster the value that many kinds of intelligence – linguistic, logical/mathematical, musical, physical, spatial and personal – are valuable and important to our community. To encourage the development of higher moral reasoning and to help children develop an internalized code of ethics and principles. We recognize each child is a unique individual with the ability to develop knowledge about themselves and the world around them through active learning. We feel strongly about individualizing to each child's unique personality and needs. We are committed to lower child-to-teacher ratios and smaller class sizes to enable teachers to: Spend more time with each child and develop closer teacher-child bonds of affection, trust and respect. Carefully assess each child’s social, emotional and cognitive progress to individualize the program accordingly. Work with children in small groups.
