Enrollment is Now Open

"Our daughters thrived at Bethany Bear's and were more than ready for Kindergarten when the time came."

Mark F., Wallingford


A Preschool with Strong Academics

We're dedicated to teaching all kinds of children, and work to help parents choose the curriculum that best suits their child's age, interests and learning style.

Educational Focus

We are a preschool, not a daycare. Children are here 3 hours a day, and that means we can focus on creative play and the educational aspects of preschool --  art, music, science activities, active play, early math and letter recognition, and celebration!

Choose the Class that Suits Your Child

We've created multiple class schedules for different age groups, ranging from our 3-year-olds to Pre-K. This enables us to create a more effective learning environment for children of all ages and abilities, as compared to many area preschools.

See a listing of our class sections, age groups, and availability here.

Experienced Educators

Our teachers are exceptionally well educated and have perfected the Bethay Bear's system over the past two decades. They know how to reach children at all levels.

Theme Teaching

Theme teaching -- on a weekly basis as well as at a high level over the course of an entire academic year -- helps children of every learning style connect with what we're doing.
