The Teddy Bear Express originated in 2004 as an idea of Provider’s Playground, an e-mail group comprising hundreds of home-based childcare and preschool facilities.
Calla will spend one full week at each facility, bringing with her a photo album, journal, souvenirs and a treat for the children on her first stop. Each class will write in the journal, add pictures from her visit and give her souvenirs to take home with her, as well as a surprise to take as a gift to the next facility on the tour.
