Preschool

In the first few years of life, 700 new neural connections are formed every second in a child’s brain. These are the connections that build the foundation upon which all learning, behavior, and health depend. This is why Busy Little Hands provides preschoolers with a healthy environment in which to learn and grow.

Daily Activities

In our preschool classrooms, children are asked to start following simple class rules, routines and directions. Activities have well defined spaces and focus on different subjects, like math and science. Each day your child will use props for imaginative play, art projects that involve the use of scissors and glue and music and movement time where children sing and dance as they get their wiggles out!

  • Well defined activities with focus on subjects like math and science
  • Imaginative play and art projects
  • Music and dance time

Curriculum

Preschoolers like to ask a lot of questions and they use their imaginations and creativity to express their ideas in many ways. Our teachers try to ask kids questions that apply to real problems and talk with them about different approaches to solving problems. As preschoolers begin to handle their impulses and feelings better, our teachers use a rewards system that reinforces positive behavior and encourages making good choices.

Our teachers also use iStartSmart – A revolutionary curriculum on our tablets and smart boards that teaches 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
  • Track your child’s progress with iSmartStart

I couldn’t say enough about how happy my daughter and I are with Busy Little Hands. I was desperately searching for a daycare when my daughter was a few months old and every place I visited had a long waitlist. I went to look at Busy Little Hands and Jessica showed me around. She said that there was a wait list but they would call if anything opened up. They called at the perfect time, and I was able to get my daughter into the nursery.

She has now been going there six months and she is so happy. Every morning that I drop her off I feel very secure and confident about leaving her there with all of the ladies and the new friends she’s made. Dayna, Denise, Camryn and Rachel are fantastic and I couldn’t say enough about how much we both love them. They have a continuous calm, happy, positive and confident demeanor. You can trust that your child will be very well taken care of when you drop them off.

They have done creative activities with the little ones that are so thoughtful. They taught my daughter how to drink a bottle, and introduced her to many new solid foods and even now the school lunch! They’re always making suggestions about what to try, etc and they have a wealth of knowledge.

Thank you Busy Little Hands. I am so glad we found you and would recommend the center to anyone!
