When making the decision to place our son in a childcare program, I really struggled to find the right fit for our family. When we found Buzzing Bees, we knew we had found the right place. The combination of its nurturing environment, intimate home like feel and teaching style has made it the best choice we could have made. Our son really loves it and I believe they have really helped guide his development in such a positive way.
In researching a daycare program for our daughter, we were fortunate to be introduced to Buzzing Bees by 2 different family friends who are sending their children there. Upon entering the building, you are greeted by a rainbow of children, each individually pictured and framed in the front hallway. The environment is filled with a generous amount of kindness and a real sense of caring; you can literally feel this as you walk through the secured entryway. Once inside, there is artwork everywhere that the children have created. In our daughter's class room, there is fish and recently a science project exploring the metamorphosis from live caterpillar to living butterflies. The rooms are filled with opportunities for learning... although it is not handled with an overbearing system; rather it is presented through casual, playful means. A multitude of toys, along with age and developmentally appropriate equipment/furnishings is available in the different classrooms. Vija cares immensely about each child under her care and this show in all that she puts into the facility. Each teacher and assistant work tirelessly in creating opportunities for developing every child into the unique individual that they
are. Our daughter has enjoyed field trips, visiting specialist teachers, special "play/theme" days... in addition to a solid routine; setting a foundation for security which allows her to take risks and discover her own self-empowerment and esteem. We couldn't be happier with our daughter's time spent at Buzzing Bees and we whole-heartedly recommend the daycare/preschool program to anyone looking for a quality-driven facility that is committed to providing a safe, adventurous, and fun environment for their child to learn, play, and grow.
Buzzing Bees is the best!!! My son has been going to the day care since they opened. They are very attentive to the children and their needs. The facility is very clean and the staff is professional. My son loves going to day care. I can see he is very happy there. As a parent, I feel comfortable with leaving him in the care of the Buzzing Bees staff. I think it’s great that they have many activities for the children; alphabets, story time, painting, outdoor activities…they even have take home assignments. Since going to the day care my son is becoming quite a talker and independent. If you are looking for a day care where your child can learn, be safe and have fun, I highly recommend Buzzing Bees Learning Center.
Buzzing Bees was a second family for our son. We always knew he was getting the best, most loving care and personal attention. He made many good friends there that we still spend time with, and he learned and developed in so many ways that prepared him well for school. Most importantly, we always knew he was safe, well cared for, and having a ball! I have recommended Buzzing Bees to many friends, Vija is top notch!
