Developmental Screenings: Busy Bee uses the Ages and Stages Questionnaire as a first step in looking closely at a child’s growth, learning and development.  This Developmental Screening provides valuable insight about a child’s cognitive, motor, communication and social-emotional development.  Screenings are helpful because they identify a child’s current understanding of concepts and assist in helping early learning professionals build an educational baseline from which to begin planning. Screening results can help to connect children at risk of developmental delay to community resources and supports for further evaluation or to determine eligibility for services. The screening results will be shared with families and remain confidential. If your child is in need of additional evaluation, we will work with your family to ensure that you are connected to the appropriate resource within the community. 

 Screening results will inform our educational planning and will be used to individualize and enhance the learning environment.  Family participation and input is a valuable aspect of the developmental screening process. We look forward to partnering with you in the developmental screening process.
