Herne Bay Childcare Centre

Bear Park Herne Bay sits on the sunny corner site of Shelly Beach Road and Tweed Street in Herne Bay. We are just a few minutes walk from Ponsonby Primary School.

The centre combines a characterful and homely bungalow with a modern extension that has been designed to let in as much natural light as possible. The result is a series of connected and well equipped learning spaces.

Across all ages, days have a familiar rhythm and pattern to them, creating a safe foundation from which children can explore. Both our indoor and outdoor classrooms are regularly reimagined, always with the goal of supporting learning and creating opportunities for imaginative, creative and scientific play.

Our babies and toddlers share a common outdoor garden and natural play area that is separated from the older preschool children by a low fence. This allows everyone to interact, and also be supported by age-appropriate resources.

Preschoolers have a multi-layered learning environment to challenge and invite curiosity, and they eat together in a spacious dining space for daily meals.
