Mission: We will provide a safe, eco-healthy, and positive learning environment with the highest quality standards.
Philosophy: We believe that children learn best through play and hands-on activities. The relationships and experiences during this time of their life will have a significant and crucial impact on future years. The daily environment we have created will provide the necessary components for their emotional, social, physical, and cognitive well-being.
Nurture independence and encourage exploration through education
Busy Bee has been nationally accredited with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for over a decade and has been awarded the Florida Gold Seal. We are an Eco-Healthy center which offers low ratios, serves homemade nutritious meals, and has caring, nurturing and educated staff. All of our toys and materials are eco friendly and developmentally appropriate.
We operate year round and provide high quality care for infants through Pre-K with a developmentally appropriate center based approach. We also have a before and after school program for children Kindergarten through 5th grade with full time care available. We offer transportation to and from Sallie Jones Elementary School and after school pick up from Baker Center and East Elementary School. Our afterschool program is full of educational and fun adventures!
We strive to build a sense of community by welcoming each child’s cultural heritage into our school. It is important that every child and parent feels accepted and needed. We love to try new recipes and experience new traditions and invite all families to share theirs with us.
Security is one of our utmost concerns. We have a Keyless Entry System which only allows access to authorized family members and personnel. Each family member is assigned a unique code which identifies them with first and last names. Codes can be changed accordingly for us to provide a safe and secure environment.
