Classrooms have a variety of learning centers targeting specific needs that allow children to explore, learn and make choices. Children are inspired to exercise imagination and creativity
Our infant rooms are warm,cozy and homelike to help the children feel comfortable and secure. Caregivers meet infants’ needs consistently, promptly, and lovingly in response to each child’s individual daily schedule. Caregivers encourage infants to use their senses and their rapidly growing physical and cognitive skills to explore their surrounding environment. Our caregivers make sure parents are informed daily about their child’s growth and developmental stage. Our infants’ needs are monitored constantly and all feedings, diaper changes and other activities are recorded for the parents’ review daily.
6 weeks-12 months
At Buzzing Bees, we know that every moment with an infant is precious. That’s why we coo, cuddle, rock and do everything possible to bond with your baby and develop a sense of trust . Through simple games like peekaboo and reading stories throughout the day, our loving teachers begin the foundational work for later learning and help infants grow in areas such as:
Language development–using books, songs and activities that match your child’s development level
Cognitive development—using activities like peekaboo, hunt and find, shape-sorting toys and puzzle time
Motor Skill development — grasping toys, tummy time, and toys to push and pull around the room
Sensory development — touching items with various textures and feeling materials in the sensory bin
Rest and nap time
Our specially designed infant daycare rooms are places where babies feel safe, secure and happy. Rooms are divided into general interest areas that meet an infant’s need to move, explore, express and relax. Personal playpens, separate areas for changing and feeding, and our booties policy, which requires that all shoes be covered when entering an infant classroom, ensure clean playing, eating and sleeping spaces.
Buzzing Bees Beginning Steps is all about creating experiences that are active, sensory-based and meaningful. Our teachers lead young toddlers through age-appropriate activities to improve coordination and increase verbal and problem-solving skills.
Toddlers: There’s no doubt that they’re a bundle of energy. But at Buzzing Bees, we welcome that energy and excitement because we know that it’s a natural part of growth and learning. Channel that energy into:
Motor Skill Development — tossing, catching, rolling, crawling, walking.
Language Development — reading time including our Share-A-Book activity and speech development
Music and Movement — dancing, singing, push toys and outdoor play.
Basic Concepts — helping notice and make sense of basic concepts, such as shapes and colors.
Artistic Development — art and construction projects.
An appropriate program for toddlers provides a balance between a toddler’s conflicting needs for security and independence. Caregivers respond to toddlers’ struggles to become independent by allowing them to make simple choices and to do things for themselves. Treating each child as an individual is critical at this time in their lives and helps each one start developing his or her full creative potential.
These areas of development are part of our child care curriculum, "The Scholastic Early Childhood Program immerses children in real-world themes that begin with what is familiar to children and connects to the world around them. The wealth of instructional materials in the program ensures a comprehensive and engaging year long curriculum appropriate for preschool children of all learning abilities." This method even extends to how we organize our classrooms that are divided into distinct areas of interest that meet children’s need to move, explore and express and relax.
Motor Skill Development — outdoor games, dancing, movement.
Language Development — recognizing and forming letters, story time, speech.
Sensory Development — textures, understanding the senses, descriptive activities.
Imaginative Development — arts and crafts, dramatic play, storytelling.
Social Development — large- and small-group activities, sharing, politeness.
Inventors. Problem-solvers. Discoverers. Dreamers. Children 24 to 36 months are opening their eyes to the larger world around them and taking an active role in it. They learn as they take things apart, put them together and ask lots and lots of questions. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities to encourage social, emotional interaction and mastery of cognitive skills.
