Babies are fun, exciting, loving bundles of joy. They are always on the move and at a different developmental and social level each hour of every day. They require constant love and protection and reward us with memories and feelings that last forever. 
At Busy Bee we have a few simple goals for our little ones. The first and most important ones are to keep every child happy, safe and well cared for. Each child will also be loved, stimulated and nurtured at their own pace, whether it be crawling, walking or running.
Our program will strive to be as close to home as possible, providing each child and parent with the unique services and qualities that best match the home they leave each morning.
Our Infant Daily Schedule
Each day we will offer a variety of activities depending on your child’s day and or feelings. We will not adhere to any strict schedule of events. However, we will work with the family to develop and follow the schedule you wish your baby to follow pertaining to feeding and napping.
Children have different needs every day and we will try our best to adapt our day to theirs.... They will have strict schedules for their whole lives, they don’t need one at our setting.
Our day will include any or all of the following: reading, singing, dancing, individual feeding, sibling or parent visits, art projects, outside walks or play, and one on one free playtime.
Our babies will have daily activities provided that will encourage the development in the following areas: intellectual development, social/emotional development, and physical development.
Our goals for your baby are: 
-To be happy and confident
-To develop social skills, friendships
-To develop fine motor skills and large motor skills
-To develop verbal skills
-To bond with others
-To explore and become curious.
Your baby will receive a detailed developmental assessment report every three months, keeping you informed as to the goals your child has or is working on developing. We work closely with parents, pediatricians, and Early Intervention to help your child develop these goals.
All infants & toddlers will receive a detailed daily information sheet to keep parents informed

* All infants & toddlers will receive a detailed daily information sheet to keep parents informed of child’s daily happenings. 

Each of our students is cared for by a loving, respectful, well trained role model. They are responsive to the child’s individual needs and support the development of self-esteem, self expression, autonomy, social competence, and social readiness.
Our daily schedule and goals:
Teachers greet each child individually helping to start their day in a positive way. Each family is greeted in a warm, friendly manner, encouraging the child to feel at ease and welcomed.
Arrival time is designed to help your child separate from his/her caregiver and develop independence. Finding their own name tags will help your child identify their name and letters and they will also learn responsibility from putting his or her things in the designated spot (cubby). Teachers greet each child individually helping to start their day in a positive way.
Free Choice/Dramatic play is designed to help your child to imitate role models, learn to share and work together, as well as develop social skills. This is done with the help of his or her teacher. This will foster speech and language arts.
Lesson time, otherwise known as our art lesson, is designed to develop fine motor skills such as cutting, pasting, painting, following directions, learning about letters, shapes and colors. It is not a creative art time, it is a step by step lesson with a beautiful outcome, designed to build self-esteem. This lesson will rotate on the goals accomplished and attention spans.
Clean up time is designated to teach responsibility and team work. Pride in a job well done.
Circle time is designed to build attention spans, listening skills and patience incorporating science, mathematics, English, language arts, history, and comprehensive health. Circle time is an important part of our day. At this time of the day, we join together as a class to reinforce through discussion and hands on activities, our academic goal of the day. For example, the sign of the day, the letter of the day or the goal of the month. We greet each other with our good morning song of the day and salute the flag. Each day a different person gets to be our calendar person and our weather person. 
Our calendar reinforces numbers, days of the week and months. Our weather person reports the weather and this reinforces the seasons and incorporates math and science. When our circle time is over, each child is dismissed to wash their hands for snack. When individuals are dismissed, they come to their teacher for a brief one on one chit chat and a hug or high five. This is a part of building trust and relationships between teacher and student and encouraging trust and a bond. 
Washing for snack is designed to teach good hygiene and self reliance skills. We also encourage each child to use the bathroom. We teach the proper way to wash hands (see hand washing policy).
Snack time helps provides the opportunity to teach table manners, more self reliance, and incorporates many life lessons. For example, waiting to eat until all of their friends are seated, please and thank you, eating with their mouths closed, and asking to be excused when finished. Each child will then clear their area by throwing away all trash away. This too is done by role modeling and example from staff. During this time we are discussing comprehensive health (healthy foods, good hygiene, reinforcing oral hygiene-which takes place during our day) 
Quiet time activities such as puzzles and books are designed to teach independent work habits. Once again this helps them to develop fine motor skills. It is also used as a transition time allowing students to eat at an appropriate rate without feeling they are missing out on another activity.
Large Motor/Dance/Song time is designed to develop gross motor skills, memory, rhythm and exercise. We have 60 minutes of large motor activity, some taking place outside encouraging being fit. 
Story time is designed to develop listening skills, memory and attention span, cognative skills, and building language arts.
Outside play is designed to develop gross motor skills, foster being fit, and reinforcing social skills.
Pick up time provides an opportunity to discuss your child’s day (please also note: our communication opportunities).
Community Busy Bee prides its self on being a well rounded program, helping your child develop a sense of self, of family, and of community. 
Our students are taught through example, hands-on, visual, and experience. To be the best you can be is a day to day learning experience that must have exposure to develop social, emotional, language arts, mathematics, science/technology, history, social studies, comprehensive health skills and self regulation skills.
We also strive to accomplish a sense of community value as well as sharing and caring through our canned food drives, our hat and mitten donations, our hop-a-thon, visits from the fire department and police department and hygienist, and our class quilt.
We welcome family involvement through with our Dinner with Me, Mothers Day Tea, Family Fun Day, grandparents game day, parent readers, celebrations, graduation day, pageants, pet day, as well as many other activities (please note family involvement policies).
Confidence and Public Speaking
Building confidence in our students is done daily, but is also displayed through our Halloween show, our Holiday Pageant and our Graduation Ceremony. Helping to develop the confidence to speak in front of people is carried through at circle time in many ways especially with happy news time. 
We work daily to help our students bee the very best they can bee.
