Curriculum

We are privileged to have Miss LaDawn as our lead Pre-K teacher. She has been getting kids ready for Kindergarten for over 23 years! Her knowledge and expertise is invaluable to your child’s success. Each week your child will use the following tools for Kindergarten readiness:

Handwriting Without Tears – Workbooks that help teach children correct penmanship as they learn to write letters and numbers. Many children will use these same workbooks in Kindergarten.

iStartSmart – A revolutionary curriculum we use on our tablets and smart boards to teach kindergarten readiness skills through digital activities that are fun and interactive. Your child’s progress is trackable so teachers can focus their attention on the areas that your child needs extra help with.

  • Rewards system to reinforce positive behaviors and making good choices
  • Fun and interactive digital activities through iSmartStart

Kangarootime is our parent communication app where you can see what teachers are charting about your child in real time!

Kids can still be kids when preparing for kindergarten.

Almost a decade ago my sister and I went on a search to find the perfect Learning Center / Child Care for my nephew. After visiting some questionable places we found Busy Little Hands about 5 minutes from our house. It was a huge relief from the second we walked in. The whole energy of the center was really amazing and Jessica was extremely inviting. My nephew went to Kindergarten extremely prepared in the educational realm and a very well rounded kind child. Fast forward 7 1/2 years Busy Little Hands was the absolute first choice for Early Learning for my daughter. I love watching her grow and learn new things every single day. She adores her teachers and loves her friends. I really believe it’s important to say BLH is more than child day care - it is a great school and the entire staff truly cares about each individual child!
