Visit Our New Activity & Learning Center at Teddy Bear Learning Center

Teddy Bear Learning Center is a privately-owned preschool on its own one and a half acre campus.  In 2012, Teddy Bear Learning Center celebrated its 20th anniversary.  This year Teddy Bear Learning Center opens a new addition to the school with an expanded Activity and Reading Center.  The addition to this new Center allows us to encourage additional group and project activities in a safe and beautiful environment. 

Request a Tour at and ask about monthly scheduling and open enrollment. 

Since its inception in 1992, one of the primary goals at Teddy Bear Learning Center has been to provide an environment that emphasizes learning through discovery.  Each day is filled with activities, experiences, reading, and creativity to stimulate learning and individual growth.  Young learners benefit from a combination of learning centers, group activities, and individual choices, while building confidence and self esteem.

Teddy Bear Learning Center is located in a residential area of Lincroft with beautiful classrooms, a secondary indoor gathering area, and a spacious play yard. 
Teddy Bear Learning Center is on its own campus, not physically attached to a shopping center, office complex, or public building.  As a result, we have been able to maintain a consistently safe and secure environment.
