Busy Bee I

Three to Four year olds

Our Three-year-olds are full of wonder because of that we called them Busy Bee I classroom. This is an exciting time for young learners who are changing physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. Our goal at this stage is to give children the opportunity to learn through play in a caring and loving environment. A typical day is filled with discoveries, investigations and busy explorations. We create the perfect mix of quiet and active times, large and small group learning with child-initiated activities to create a day full of learning and fun. Our center is designed to give children independence and is equipped with activities that promote unique learning opportunities. Each day, we gather and share stories, tasks, talk about our day and plan our learning journey. Being together allows us to bond with each other.


The core areas are:

Language: Quality children’s literature is displayed in an inviting manner to encourage children to read and explore books.  A quiet corner of the room with comfortable chairs, sofas or beanbags gives children a peaceful reading environment as well as a place to relax their bodies when they feel overstimulated.

Science / Discovery: This center introduces children to scientific discovery, analytical thinking and problem-solving.  Children care for animals, plants charting growth and observing changes.  Experiments are regularly set up for children to interact, observe and record.

Math: This combined center provides opportunities for children to practice number concepts and fine motor skills.  Sequencing, ordering, seriating and other number concepts are explored, along with learning numbers, counting and small adding and subtracting equations.

Writing Center: A variety of different types of paper and writing utensils are rotated through this center to encourage children’s experimentation with free writing.

Busy Bee Programs

Sensory Activities: This table provides important learning opportunities for young children.  As children pour, sift, fill and measure, they experiment with texture, density, and other properties.  Sensory areas are also very soothing to children who are overstimulated.

Blocks and Building: This area provides building opportunities for children as they lay out roads, castles and other creative monuments.  Children strengthen large and fine motor control, problem-solving and logical thinking.  They experiment with balance, design and other mathematical properties.

Creative Art: In this center, there are a variety of arts and crafts materials available for the children to use for experimenting and creating.  We use a variety of media and materials for painting.  In addition, each room has easels that are available for them to use.  Children develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor control, and creativity as they explore color, texture, and shape in their art.

Dramatic Play: In this center, children have the opportunity to become firefighters, fathers, doctors, ballerinas, chefs, or any other role that captures their imagination.  Housekeeping props, as well as other open-ended props and theme prop boxes, are available for the children’s play.  This role-playing provides children with important peer interactions and socio-emotional development.  Children learn to cooperate, share and gain self-understanding as well as a positive self-image.

Enrollment Process:

Our enrollment process is quite simple – once you have toured our facilities, all your questions are answered and have received full rates/payment options (Infant and Preschool prices are different), then you are given a packet of documents to complete. The packet consists of the basic Department of Social Services licensing forms (child’s information, emergency contact, immunization, etc.) as well as Tiny Thinkers Preschool enrollment forms. After all of the forms are completed, your child can attend Tiny Thinkers Preschool.
