The Teddy Bear Club Community
The Teddy Bear Club Preschool and Kindergarten has an international flavor not only because of its French atmosphere and culture, but also thanks to the diversity of students who attend the program. Over one hundred and fifty students constitute the Teddy Bear Club’s student body. While approximately seventy percent of our students are American, TBC families come from all over the world, including: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru and Russia. Many children come to us barely speaking their first language, while others are bilingual, or even trilingual!
Despite the variety of cultures, backgrounds and languages, the children all have the same common love of learning and playing. Geographically, about two-thirds of the students live in Newton and neighboring cities such as Boston, Brookline, Needham, Wellesley and Weston. The other one-third come from further away including towns such as Concord, Dover, Holliston, Milton, Natick and Sherborn.
