Bear Park Herne Bay is a beautiful early childhood centre with a lot of potential. Unfortunately there is a sense of disengagement from both teachers and children in the preschool areas. A lot of raised voices and seemingly bored children. The teachers obviously put a lot of work into creating beautiful displays and setting up the environment, but I wonder, who is it for?
