About this home

A welcoming home from home setting, in the middle of Bedale. Passionate about learning through play and particularly outdoor learning. Feeling part of a community is important to us. You will find us out daily at local groups, activities, and at the shops/markets. Children have a big involvement in preparing our meals right from planting seeds to chopping and cooking. Expect messy play, adventures, and a lot of fun.

About our tiney childminder

Here at Little Bear, children are encouraged to learn through play. We give them opportunities to explore all areas of learning in an exciting and stimulating way that is age appropriate. We love being outdoors both at the setting and about in the community. After 17 years working with children and families, and now being a mummy to two children myself I have set up Little Bear to bring all my knowledge and love of early years together so I can offer children an excellent early years education.

In this neighbourhood

Being a couple of minutes away from the market towm of Bedale, we have such a fantastic selection of shops and a weekly market on a Tuesday. We have a butcher, greengrocer and baker that we visit for our supplies towards the seasonal menu. We walk to the library, childrens book shop and choice of parks. There is a beck that the children love walking alongside and feeding the ducks. There is a choice of classes and events for children too and we feel very much part of the community. We visit Thorp Perrow weekly and also are regular visitors at Kipling Hall and Yolk Farm.

What others are saying about this home...


My little girl and I have loved going to baby group for the last 6 months. Stacey really is amazing and cares a lot about what she does and it shows.


Stacey is super fun and fills you with energy even when you're are having a tired day. I joined when my little boy was a few months old and have been going every week since. The classes are brilliant and there's always something new. I have made great friends.


Stacey makes you feel so welcome from the very first time you walk in, you're made to feel at ease even when you don't know anyone. Her energy and love for what she does makes every class so enjoyable and fun.
