Bethany Busy Bee Early Learning Center’s success in offering a quality, preschool education in a loving, Christian environment benefits from the partnership with parents and the church.

We offer various opportunities for parents to partner with Bethany Busy Bee to enhance their child’s preschool experience. The special events we offer are truly more special when parents are around to share the moment. Parents are invited to volunteer one hour each month, or 9 hours each school year. There are a variety of ways to meet these hours, depending on your interests, abilities and availability. If you have a special talent that you would like to help with but it is not listed, please speak with the Director.

We also have several opportunities for parents to lead or act as in an advisory role in the following areas: Governance Team as a parent representative, Samaritan’s Purse, Silent Auction, Fall Festival, Rodeo Days, Thanksgiving Feast, Room Parent, or Teacher Appreciation.

Parent Participation and Volunteer Opportunities are available throughout the school year. You may choose from School Wide Special Events, Reoccurring Needs, Classroom Specific Needs, and participating in school fundraisers by attending and/or providing food, beverage or cash donations.

In lieu of donating your time, you may make an equivalent tax deductible gift to Bethany Busy Bee.

  • We would love to have someone partner with us or spearhead a special celebration for the teachers. In the past we have done a teacher’s brunch and everyone brought something to share. Or we also had a parent spearhead an entire week of special surprises for the teachers with the help of other parents. If you have an idea, please see Joyce or someone in the preschool office to help coordinate this with you and the other parents.
