Our Philosophy

Our goal is to make a wonderful and rich experience for every child who enters our childcare. We guide with love and understanding because one of the most important gifts we can give a child is the gift of a healthy self-esteem.

I am a working mother with my first child and it was a difficult decision to make, but necessary. So when I went to meet with the Bee Happy Child Care provider after visiting three other daycare sites, it was refreshing to feel so welcomed, as if I was family. The set up of her daycare is awesome, and accommodating for every age group. Lorraine was professional and thorough in explaining everything. I feel comfort in knowing that my daughter is not only well taken care of but she has daily opportunities to enrich her life with all the activities that are made available. Seeing how happy my daughter is when I leave her in the morning allows me to go to work with peace of mind. I believe my daughter is a part of the Bee Happy family and they have become a part of ours. I’m confident in saying that my daughter could not be in a better place and I feel blessed that I was fortunate enough to have found Bee Happy Child Care.

Bumble Bees

Newborn – 2 years

Warm and responsive care is crucial for your infant’s healthy development. Bumble Bees are held and nurtured by loving caregivers. We enrich the infant environment with soft toys, colorful books and music. Caregivers talk to the babies, our baby bees participate in story time, play games like peek-a-boo and we sing to them. They are always praised for reaching new milestones, and benefit from overhearing the preschoolers reciting their lessons. At the end of the day we give you a complete record of your baby’s care, including sleeping, eating and diapering.

Busy Bees

Toddlers – Preschool
2 – 5 years

Busy Bees are developing rapidly and dramatically in all areas. They are beginning to think through their actions, solve problems and understand language. They thrive on new experiences, so we provide them with a safe, nurturing environment that allows each child to develop naturally, individually and happily. We have constructed a full day program with age appropriate activities for each group. We encourage dramatic play, address all developmental domains and promote creativity and independent choices. As your child goes through the stages of growth, our curriculum and expectations will change.

Younger busy bees are learning words so quickly and beginning to express thoughts, we use activities like reading books aloud, nursery rhymes and songs to expand their language skills.

Preschool ready bees want to explore and discover the world around them. We spark their sense of discovery by providing a colorful, enriching environment that offers a wide variety of educational toys and materials. Plenty of fun, self-directed activities give them the independence they are so eager to enjoy and helps them prepare to cross the bridge to Kindergarten. Bee Happy proudly utilizes the professional preschool curriculum by Mother Goose for all structured learning activities.
