For many, the Busy Bees Class is the first time children spend time away from their parents. Our warm, caring environment helps students to take this step without additional stress being placed upon the child.
Our experienced teachers will support your child in a small class group with many chances for one-on-one interaction. We use the children's senses to stimulate their interest and increase their engagement in learning. Our extensive theme curriculum is used to teach topics such as Animals, Things Around the Home, and about themselves. Activities such as yoga are integrated each day to aid in their physical development.
We also encourage independence through daily routines and support students as they learn to be more independent, develop group and life skills, and show consideration for their friends.

Our thematic approach to teaching in the Busy Bee and Frozen Frog classes helps the students explore the world around them while learning new vocabulary and being exposed to new ideas.
In our Introductions topic we talked about pets. We talked about some families having fish and some having turtles. We even got the chance to see what it was like inside the Kinder Kids Fish Tank.
Gross Motor Skills focus on the development of the larger muscles in the body and help children with the ability to run, skip and walk. Jumping in particular helps children increase their overall coordination skills.
Having an opportunity to participate in a supported Gross Motor Skills experience (such as walking on stepping stones) helps children’s balance and cognitive development.
