Welcome to Busy Bees Family Child Care!
    There are many characteristics of this child care home that make it a special place for children to learn and grow. I care for a small group of children, no more than six at a time. Care for each child is very consistent and the program is designed to meet the individual needs of each child. I plan a wide range of enriching experiences that build a strong foundation of emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills for each child.
    We have a large indoor play room with an abundance of toys and equipment. The children enjoy a large, shaded fenced yard. The safety and health of the children are always our first priority. Special attention is given to providing nutritious, home style meals in a friendly family atmosphere. I am very proud of this child care program and I encourage you to call me to schedule a visit at (937) 294-7164.
