Welcome Back to Bear Town!
Bear Town is reopening for the third time since it launched in October 2020.
Bear Town is a unique role play centre where young children can try a host of “grown up” jobs,
from vets and mechanics to firefighters and hairdressers. At Bear Town, there are no rules on
imagination. Children will be encouraged to let their imagination run wild and be who they want to
be, encouraging children to ‘Learn Through Play’.
Ben Jordan, owner of Bear Town, said he wanted to create a unique play experience which offered
more than just play.
He said: ‘We are so excited to reopen! Since October we have only been able to open for 42 days
and this is now our third opening. We can’t wait for more people to experience our amazing town
and all it have to offer. Role play helps children to broaden their personal, social and emotional
development, expand their communication and language skills, all the while gaining confidence
and most importantly having fun. Bear Town has been carefully created to offer a fun educational
experience that supports the Early Years Foundation Stage, yet all the children know is that they are
having an amazing time.’
Each ‘room’ will have a QR code which can be scanned. Parents can read all about the learning in
that area and how to help their children make the most of the experience. Bear Town has been
designed to be inclusive. The town is accessible for wheelchair users and all room signs area also
displayed in braille. Cleaning and resetting will take place between each session, ensuring the town
is ready for the next set of discoverers.
Inside Bear Town is a relaxing café where visitors can enjoy a selection of hot and cold drinks
including freshly ground coffee, homemade cakes, snacks and delicious locally sourced meals
during their visit.
Bear Town is open daily. Visit www.beartown.co.uk to find out more.
