Tootsie Bear Day Care & Preschool is a quality, state-licensed in-home child care and preschool. We provide professional preschool and child care services to the Wisconsin Rapids area for children ages 2 to 12 years. Our small group size (maximum of 8 children at any time) allows the teacher to develop a bond with each child.
A clean, developmentally appropriate classroom invites children to be comfortable and secure. A carefully planned curriculum allows play to take precedence, while offering learning opportunities throughout the day. Our large fenced outdoor play area offers lots of room for large motor activity.

Tootsie Bear Day Care & Preschool offers morning Preschool Classes for children 2 years to 5 years of age as well as part and full day child care. Our preschool curriculum is theme based, with an emphasis on play based learning. We focus on social relationships, langugage skills, problem solving, fine and gross motor development, and self-help skills. Activities are incorporated that promote letter, number, shape, and color recognition.  We work to instill values such as respect, caring, cooperation, and politeness. Our preschool program will prepare your child for success in kindergarten and beyond.
