Welcome to Busy Bee Preschool! We are thrilled that you are interested in finding out information about our preschool program!
For the past 25 years, the private Murrieta-based Busy Bee Preschool has been a school that has been "buzzing" with happiness & personalized learning. We are precise blend of the Montessori, Waldorf, and High-Scope learning philosophies, all placed in a home-based preschool environment. We have been very successful in helping children achieve their personal best, in their first "school" experience, because of fundamental beliefs:
1. We believe that each child is special, unique, and wants to learn. It is our job to find out how each child will learn the best, and then "teach to reach" each and every child. It is our responsibility to constantly offer plenty of whole learning experiences using the 4 learning styles of sociological, visual, auditory, and tactile. We also believe that each child learns in their own special way, and we allow each child to grow and "stretch their wings" the best they can.
2. We believe that young children will learn best in a classroom that has MANY teachers to tend to their every need. Unlike "Transitional Kindergarten" offered through the public schools, we have small classes with lots of adult supervision. We are unique in that we have 3 teachers to 12 children ratio. This gives the children an environment of constant encouragement, guided learning, and supervision, therefore giving these children the most positive first school experience ever.
3. We believe that young children need to PLAY to learn! It is imperative that we allow these children to feel joy within the academics they are learning. We strive to create a balance of academics, play, and social interaction for 3, 4 & 5 year olds. Children learn through play. Here at Busy Bee, we offer different types of play including "free play" as well as "structured play" and "guided play", all infused with curriculum that teaches the CA state standards for kindergarten.
4. We believe that an outstanding team of teachers and assistants make a school truly wonderful. Our teachers are the HEART of this school. Ms. Heather and her staff of teachers work tirelessly on creating lessons, crafts, activities, and play that enrich each and every child, and magnify their talents. Our teachers are certified teachers who have many years of teaching experience. They love what they do, they love these children, and it shows.
5. We believe that every child deserves to be in a class environment that is safe. We have a zero tolerance policy with bullying. We also understand that at this age children are learning boundaries, and need to be guided to make the right "choices". Learning to treat others with kindness and respect starts here. We work diligently with each and every child, daily, positively, to help them learn HOW to interact well with others. We keep lines of communication open with parents, through email, phone calls, and personal visits. We believe that together, we are a team.
We love seeing our little ones walk through our front door with big smiles, giggles, and "buzzing" with excitement to learn.
