Carebear Preschool: Quality Education for Children Ages 2 – 5
Carebear Preschool
Carebear Preschool Chandler AZ
Carebear Preschool provides quality education for children ages 2 through 5. Teachers facilitate play and learning, teaching more by example and engagement than through top-down instruction. This works with a child’s natural instinct to observe and mimic, allowing teachers to provide more direct instruction as needed. Every child is valued as an individual and learning is tailored to each student’s needs and interests.
Carrie Kuhns, a certified early education teacher, founded Carebear Preschool in 2002 in Chandler, Arizona, on the south side of Phoenix. Its mission was clear: to prepare children for education in every way: cognitive, social, emotional, and physical, with a special emphasis on both language and creative development. Through innovative teaching at a young age, Carebear Preschool provides a sturdy starting point for each child’s educational journey.
The regular school day is from 8 AM to 2:45 PM. Families that need more time can enroll their child(ren) in early and/or late care, extending the day from 7 AM to 6 PM. Various weekly schedules are available to accommodate families’ needs. These include: 5 days (Mon. – Fri.), 3 days (Mon. / Wed. / Fri.), and 2 days (Tues. / Thurs.). Younger classes also have a mornings only option.

Carebear Preschool encourages parent involvement for all students. Parents are welcome to visit during the school day and participate in special school events such as holiday celebrations. Parents are also encouraged to check in with their child(ren)’s teacher for brief daily updates as well as to attend longer parent / teacher conferences.
Child safety is of utmost importance at Carebear Preschool. Every child must be signed in at drop off and signed out at pick up by a parent. No one else may pick up a child without prior written permission. Furthermore, a state of the art security system monitors the building at all times, and no one can enter without a numeric code. Since everyone must enter and exit through the main lobby, Carebear Preschool is always aware of who is in the building and why.
Since food allergies are such a dangerous problem for some children, Carebear Preschool is a nut-free campus. Parents must notify the school of any allergies, and a snack calendar will be sent home each month. Students also bring a packed lunch from home, which must be nut-free. This ensures the parents can provide a lunch best suited to each child’s individual taste, as well as his or her nutrition needs.
Carebear Preschool is dedicated to raising physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy kids. Through fun learning projects, skill-based activities, and daily outside play (weather permitting), children learn about themselves and the world around them. Just as important, children at Carebear Preschool also develop the social skills to work and play well with others, providing them a solid foundation for elementary school and life.
