Bear Care


             Bear Care is a licensed childcare program offering an enrichment program that provides developmentally appropriate education programs based on the same instructional components students study in school.  We offer homework help, music, art, technology, reading, writing and math activities.  We have highly-skilled staff and low student-teacher ratios.

Hours of Operation  


We are open year 'round, providing childcare of students of SCES, TES and Preschool.  We operate before and after school for the K-5 program and we are open on all breaks, school closings and snow days from 6:00am to 6:00pm, excluding holidays.  We operate 6:00am - 6:00pm Monday - Friday everyday at the preschool program, excluding holidays.
