Our Bear Cubs room is for 20 children, three and four years old. Children in this classroom are becoming more independent, interactive, and interested in teacher-directed activities. They are working in both small and large group activities including: music, movement, story-time, math, science, and language arts. Child-teacher ratios vary between 7-1 and 10-1.
