PURPOSE, GOALS & VALUES
Teddy Bear Band's purpose is to provide children with entertainment, music and products that encourage each child to participate and interact in developmentally appropriate ways. The Teddy Bear Band strives to help children gain and maintain a positive sense of self, as well as an appreciation of their own abilities with music that also nurtures learning and socialization.
Positive values experienced through music at our performances include:
- Laughing, having fun and finding positive "escape" through imagination. These are all worthwhile uses of time and are deserving of attention by children and adults to feel renewed and revitalized.
- Being a kid, and doing kid things like playing with a Teddy Bear. This is a stage of life to be enjoyed and celebrated.
- Maintaining positive self-esteem.
- Respecting others & helping others.
- Being part of a supportive & loving family.
- Being responsible & taking care of the Earth.
