Supporting our community is a big part of who we are at Teddy's Place. Here are a few organizations that we are proud to be a part of.
For the last several years the Sun Prairie school district has been emphasizing a positive behavior based curriculum through a program called PBIS, or Positive Behavior Interventions and Support. This program has been in place at the middle and elementary school levels, but never before at the preschool level. Late 2015 Teddy’s Place was selected to join the PBIS program at the early-childhood level.
“Teddy’s Place has a high level of focus on academics, positive behavior reinforcement, and a staff that’s always looking for ways to grow. We’re honored to have been chosen.” - Sharlot Bogart.
