We have our annual Rodeo Days January 23rd and 24th.  We need a volunteer for each classroom to help us prepare, and serve the special cowboy snack (beans, wieners, biscuits & apple juice) and clean up afterwards.  We also need parents to guide a group of kids from each class through the various activities, help them with the line dance and teach them how to gallop their stick horses. We’d love to have a photographer to take pictures of children throughout the activities.  And a couple of parents manning the milking the cow station and the cow pie toss station.  Thank you!

  • January 23rd and 27th: Kindergarten Info Night from 6-7 pm Please join us to find out more about our Kindergarten program.  At Busy Bee we strive to provide a Balanced Early Childhood Education in a Christian Environment for children 2.5 years old through Kindergarten.We start the love of learning in a safe nurturing environment where kids feel comfortable being themselves!

    We believe that God has uniquely created each person with special abilities and needs. Our aim is to help each child mature spiritually, socially, emotionally, academically, and physically recognizing and developing their distinct, God-given abilities and addressing their individual needs. We believe that the parents are the primary teachers of their children. Our intent therefore is to assist parents by reinforcing the truths of God and His love for all people; and teaching the skills and knowledge which will equip them for success in the years ahead.

    What makes our kindergarten program unique is the small classrooms with 12 students cap and still maintaining two teachers 75% of the time.  This ratio allows for truly personal instruction to aid in each child’s development.

    There will be a Buddy Day offered March 3rd from 8:45 to 9:45 am.  You will receive a separate evite to remind you of this event.

    We look forward in seeing you here!
