The story of Teddy Bear Preschool

Childcare should be as unique, energetic, creative, and loving as the little ones we care for. We understand that at Teddy Bear Preschool.

Jana Lamarque -- Owner, Teddy Bear Preschool LLC

I have worked with children on the Monterey Peninsula for over 25 years.  In my early career, I was a family day care provider and when I opened Teddy Bear Preschool in May 1999, I wanted to provide quality child care in a preschool environment. 

An important component of the preschool experience for me was to allow flexibility for our parents in scheduling their children’s time with us. That’s why we offer any combination of mornings, afternoons, half days or full days, to work with your family’s schedule.  Monday and Friday afternoons work best for you?  As long as we have openings on your preferred days, we allow any combination to meet your needs.

We strive to bring innovation, current research-based practices, creativity and love to our program here at Teddy Bear Preschool.  Through the years, our passion for young children and their well-being has remained strong. We feel very blessed being part of your child’s preschool experience.
