From Our Website

That's just fine with us! Our vision has always been to create a uniquely balanced setting for our families. It's true that our convenient location allows us to offer the amenities often found in much larger companies. Yet we always strive to maintain a homey atmosphere that reflects our creative approach to childcare, and each room reflects this with its own style and flair. Many of our wonderful staff have been with us for 5 to 10 years -- in fact, one just celebrated her 15th anniversary at Busy Bees and three more have been with us since 2001!

We love to have parents participate in various activities, from reading to classes, song/dance, and creative classes on various projects. This year we were lucky to have one parent come in and do a sunflower growing project with the BumbleBee class. We also had a music session with one of the fathers where we incorporated two classes of kids dancing, singing, and making song requests. We would like to thank all the parents who have contributed and we look forward to more ideas from you! We have had a number of field trips this year.

Security deposit is equal to one week of tuition and is due at the time of enrollment. The security deposit is refundable when 2 weeks notice of departure is given and the the account is paid on time and is up-to-date. We realize how expensive it can be to have two or more children in care. Therefore, we offer a 5% discount on each child's tuition when you enroll more than one child at Busy Bees.

The most important period of life is not the age of university studies but the first one, from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed. Our infant program has been modeled after the European "Nanny Share" nurseries. You will love our unique, homey and cheerful environment, and your baby will develop a sense of trust and anticipation as she gets to know our familiar, friendly faces. One primary caregiver focuses on the complete well-being of specific children.

We've been sending our daughter here since May, and have had a great experience so far. As someone with previous experience in the childcare field, I am so impressed by how happy all of the teachers and employees are. You can really tell that they like their jobs and are committed to giving kids and families a great experience. Our daughter talks about her teachers on the weekends, and is beginning to talk about the things she does during the day. We can tell that she's doing a lot of interactive activities with teachers and kids.
