Cuddly Bear Templestowe Early Learning Centre is a privately owned and operated long day care centre in Templestowe, which provides care and education for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years.

Our aim is to provide an environment where families feel Cuddly Bear is their home away from home. Our friendly, dedicated long term professional educators and Pre School Teachers warmly welcome children and their families each day.

Every child has the right to positive experiences throughout their childhood.

Our philosophy is to provide a safe, happy, secure and stimulating environment for the children which encourages a positive attitude towards learning.

This will be done in a variety of ways, which enhances each individual child’s self-esteem and eagerness to learn, taking into consideration the holistic needs of the individual child.

We have an open door policy as we promote collaborative partnerships with families and the community - Families are always welcome to visit and get involved. We invite you to take a look …..
