The Busy Bee Learning Center provides high quality child care for children ages 6 weeks to kindergarten. High quality child care is characterized by high staff to child ratios, small groups of children and well-trained staff offering developmentally appropriate curriculum. The center strives to meet the standards set by the Quality Rating Improvement Scale (a voluntary program) and the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. The center strives to meet the child care needs for residents of Lee and surrounding towns. We seek to reflect the diversity of the community.
At Busy Bee Learning Center we view each child as an individual ready to learn. We designed our program so we provide developmentally appropriate experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. Our staff strives to provide experiences to promote the physical, emotional, social and cognitive development of our children. Implementaion of these areas follows an integrated model where the environment encourages children to learn about the world around them through play and interactions with materials, peers, adults and the natural world.
