May 2016

The year is swiftly coming to an end and the children have grown so much while having fun and learning so much at Busy Bee.  We are planning for a fun filled summer camp and enrolling for the upcoming school year.  We are looking froward to a happy Pre K graduation on June 17th and end of the year programs for our other classes.

We have been in Rahway for nearly 50 years and look forward to a big celebration in 2017!

October 2015

Fall is in the air. We love playing outside on crisp mornings and yet afternoons still remind us of the final days of summer.  We had a busy first month of school and a well attended Back to School night in both our facilities.  October will be a full of "tasty' activites and explorations of the changes the season produces. The classeswill learn lessons about fire safety, enjoy a visit from our local fire department, learn the importance of "stop-drop and roll" too.  Each groupwill enjoy lessons about apples and eat them in several ways.  The children will pick a pumpkin from our pumpkin patch later in the monthand parade and party on Halloween Day.  We are learning colors, numbers, letters and shapes as well as makingnew friends and learning to be a good friend as well.  It would be great to have you visit our program and see the happy children in their "home away from home" at Busy Bee

Welcome Summer!

Welcome summer!  Camp has begun at Busy Bee and the children will enjoy taking many of our activities out doors.  Scheduled water play days are tons of fun and learning while making crafts and reading stories is an important part of the program.  We will learn new songs and games, have special “color” days and create lots of exciting projects. The toddlers at our 2153 location will also enjoy spending lots of time outdoors and splashing in the water tables and puddles while learning skills and sharing with friends. Please call to visit our programs if you have a child between 18 months and 5 years. We will be accepting registrations for September and would love to have you join our family.

Happy June!

The school year  has once again sped by very quickly.  But the lessons learned and thegrowth seen in all of our children has been amazing.  We are looking forward to a safe and happy summer with the children who are staying for “camp”. We will miss those leaving and wish them well in all that they do.  This month remains a busy one with end of the year programs, songs and tears and hugs. A graduation in PreK and a fun-filled “end of the year” program for all families. In addition to our summertime themes we are celebrating Dads, Grandpas and other favorite men in the lives of the children.  We want you to check us out and come visit our center soon.

Welcome Spring!

During this month we will celebrate the children in many different ways. We are displaying artwork at the Rahway Library during the week of April 13th.. We are having breakfast with our parent(s) during the week of April 13th. We are having our own Art Show for family viewing on Thursday April 23rd.

It’s a month of celebrating.  We are anxious to take walks in the neighborhood to look for signs of spring and changes that spring brings.  We will be planting flowers and getting our community garden plot ready for a season of vegetables.  We hope you will visit our centers to see the fun we have at Busy Bee.  Please call to arrange a tour soon.

NEWSFLASH:  Busy Bee is now accepting infants from 6 weeks of age.  We hope to
enroll 4 babies really soon.  Call 732-381-7227 if you or a friend might be interested..

Happy March!

March came in like a lion but will hopefully go out with calmer days and lamb like breezes   The children have been venturing out to the playground to get much needed fresh air.  Can’t wait for all the snow to melt so they can utilize all of the wonderful equipment our playground offers.  Until then they will take walks around the block to look for signs of spring.  Once again this year Busy Bee will cultivate a garden across the street in the Rahway Community Garden.  Last year we produced an abundance of tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley, carrots and some green beans.  We will expand our crops this year and still enjoy planting sunflowers too.  On March 24th, the eggs arrive for us to incubate and hatch.  The children love this project and guessing the order in which the eggs will hatch.  Later in spring we will watch our classroom caterpillars become butterflies before we set them free outside.  

Lots of fun and learning happening at Busy Bee.

Happy February

It’s friendship month so lots of lessons about kindness in each classroom. The children are learning about healthy habits and healthy teeth too. They are talking about Presidents, Black History month and Chinese New Year.  And we can’t wait the 6 weeks for Spring to come!.
We have Valentine parties on the 12th and 13th.  Parents have come in to make cards for their children, which is always a fun event. Exciting news !!!! The Busy Bee Child Care Center Facebook page is up. Still developing the posts, but would love for you to visit the page often.  Even
better, come to one of our centers to visit a classroom and see all the learning that is taking place. Happy Valentines Day!

Happy New Year

January is typically spent indoors so that we modify activities from the outside and bring them in.  We are learning so much about winter animals, winter ports and weather.  Each day is packed with learning and fun.  We welcomed some new friends this month into our young 3’s class and transitioned some children into the next level.  We still enjoy our Fetchercise program and Music several times each month.  We would love for you to visit our center and learn more about our program.  There are openings in the Toddler building where your child will  begin socialization and enjoy learning a-b-c’s, colors, numbers, letters and shapes in many ways.  Perhaps you will visit our Preschool and PreK classes and enter the fabulous world of early education and a life long love of learning.
