6 weeks to 18 months old

You've heard it said that our babies are like sponges; eager to learn at any hour of the day, ready to make sense of the rich and vast ecology they find themselves amid. At Busy Bee, we can attest to this notion. Our youngest students constantly crave new learning opportunities. Even household mainstays such as Peek-a-boo remain simple, yet fantastic opportunities to help little learners conceptualize their surroundings. That’s why at Busy Bee, as early as six-weeks old, we create the climate for early childhood socialized learning. Each child has an individual schedule for eating and resting, for example and each day an activity sheet goes home that details your child's learning experiences on that day.  We even highlight your child's feeding schedule and diaper changes. Our littlest learners are even exposed to the riches of sign language and the Spanish language. Your child will discover the world around him or her through a diverse set of interactions, each developed to add memorable, dependable context to changing situations. Our six-weeks to two-year-old curriculum, includes the following:

  • Socialization
  • Sharing
  • Large Muscle Activities
  • Music and Finger Plays
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Books and  games
  • Outdoor play
  • Rest/Nap time
  • Snack/Lunch time

18 months to 3 yrs old

The expression “it’s all about me” is ever so true of this age group. There are many new changes for your child as he/she moves into this group.  Up to this point your child’s playtime has been about personal discovery.  He/she is now on the road to new breakthroughs in learning.  Your child has spent most of their time in parallel play – playing side by side with a friend.  This group has more structure and works together to accomplish goals. Each child may play individually but is encouraged to share with one another and work as partners.

3 to 4 yrs old

The old saying, “children say the darndest things” is never truer than it is when young learners begins to interpret the mysteries that surround their world. There comes a point in your child’s mental and physical maturation when he or she frequently asks questions that will help them answer life’s little mysteries. “Mom, why’s the sky blue?” or “Daddy, how come grown-ups don’t have ‘bedtime’?” While these little talks commonly interrupt an otherwise peaceful drive to the annual family BBQ, these conversations are also often some of the most treasured times in a parent’s life. And Busy Bee values them too. This is why our three- to four-year-old curriculum encourages the curiosity inherent in your little explorer.

More and more, the makers of video games and children’s television programming are catering to our learners' hunger to busy their minds. Exciting chances to engage in socialized preparatory (pre-k) education continue to compete with video games and kid’s TV. Though small amounts of either don’t necessarily make for a bad thing, Busy Bee believes that the hallmark of the well-prepared pre-k learner is the reliable learning opportunities that were afforded the child prior to entering kindergarten. Our program designed for your pre-k, four-plus learner does just that: it prepares and it cultivates your child’s hunger to discover and realize his or her potential. Through our arts and crafts, reading, math, science and socio-cultural programs, your pre-k child will gain a deeper understanding of his or her world and be well equipped with the fundamental tools they require as they adjust to kindergarten. Our pre-k, four-plus curriculum includes the following:

  • Reading readiness activities
