Our Approach

It is the mission at Busy Bees Natural Learning Center to provide quality childcare for all families in the community in a warm, nurturing, loving and educational environment. 

 

It is our goal:

 

To provide high quality, developmentally appropriate childcare for infants- preschool children with focus on the individual child’s age and ability to stimulate social, cognitive, physical and emotional growth.

 

To provide a safe, nurturing and natural environment for school age children while their parents work or attend school.

 

To provide opportunities for families to be involved with their children’s education and have access to parenting support and education.

 

Our objectives:

 

To provide a curriculum which enables each child to develop new skills at their own ability levels, to prepare each child to succeed in kindergarten and to provide a safe, healthy environment for the children so their parents can obtain peace of mind about their child’s care.

 

To provide a variety of activities in a safe, friendly, natural, supportive environment.

 

To provide opportunities for parental involvement in the operations of the facility.

What Parents Think

We chose Busy Bees for the more inclusive & family environment they had to offer? Our daughter learns through play as much as possible, is treated and loved as if she were family and is flourishing socially. Busy Bees staff are dedicated to all children and promote honest learning through peer interaction, community visitors and various outdoor learning/play opportunities.
