Mission Statement


Teddy Bear Child Care’s mission is to provide affordable daycare to diverse families within the Muncie community, with particular emphasis on low income families and students enrolled at local institutions of higher learning (e.g., Ball State University, Ivy Tech Community College) and staff at Ball Memorial Hospital and IU health.  We provide a wide range of age-appropriate learning opportunities for children from 6 weeks through six years of age to develop and grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally, while also learning the physical skills necessary for day-to-day life.



Teddy Bear Child Care is dedicated to providing a warm and loving family environment for children. With our smaller size, we are able to give quality, individualized care to families at affordable prices, and we also offer various discounts and vouchers to help with the overall cost of care. Many basic child care necessities are provided at no additional cost by the Center, including diapers and wipes, as well as home-style meals and snacks; this helps reduce some of the stress for families where finances are an issue.   For a child with special needs, we work to provide the best care possible while helping the family explore all additional resources to enhance the child’s well-being.   As we view the Center as a family,the importance of family bonds cannot be understated; siblings are encouraged to interact with one another, and we want everyone involved - children, parents, and staff alike - to feel like they are part of our extended family.  


Children here are encouraged to be children; we do not believe they are small adults. The individual progress, growth, and development of every child are important to us. The environment at the Center promotes learning while having fun during the process.  Through a mixture of hands-on experiences, group activities, and individual play, our children develop the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical skills necessary for all aspects of life and growth.  Parent comments and suggestions are encouraged and are taken into serious consideration as we continually adapt to new challenges. The children are not the only ones who are engaged in the learning experience - all of our staff and parents also learn from the children.
