Welcome to Susie's Mama Bear. Choosing a childcare center for your family is one of the most important decisions you can make. At Susie's Mama Bear, your little one will be cared for in a safe and nurturing place of learning that enables your child to grow through fun and developmentally appropriate activities.

Susie's Mama Bear is designed with families in mind. We form partnerships with you to complete the learning and healthy development of your child. Parents are welcome to join their children for lunch or observe them in class at any time.

You, Your Child & Our Center

  • Visit us with your child before the start of their day. During the visit, let your child explore their classroom while you step out for roughly 15 minutes. This allows your child time to associate your departure with a return and you to observe your child with other classmates.
  • When you enter the classroom, we suggest all parents take their children to a sink and wash their hands. This is a good habit for children to learn about washing their hands in a new environment.
  • Establish a routine of reading a story or playing a game together before you leave. This will tell your child that you feel our center is a safe and enjoyable place to be.
  • Bring a family photo for your child to look at periodically during the day.
  • Say goodbye to your child rather than leaving without them noticing. Your child will recognize that although you are leaving, you will return.

As we enjoy this journey, please feel free to share new ideas and suggestions with our staff. We value close communication between families and teachers. We look forward to getting to know you and offering a safe, caring, and discovery-filled environment for your child.

My daughter went here from ages 1-5 and I couldnt be more happier with my decision. Everyone here is loving, professional and really cares about the kids! I never had any issues getting in touch with anyone and my questions/concerns were always addressed.

I wish I didn't have to take my daughter out of this daycare due to moving. The main employees are amazing and treated my daughter like their own. They set good boundries and understood that all kids come with like issues and worked around them. My daughter loved going to daycare every day.

We found this daycare by chance and are so glad we did. We love this place and so does our son. They are even helping us potty train and are teaching him Spanish. We’ll be keeping him here as long as we can!
