The program serves full time care for children 6 weeks old to 5 years old. We provide before and after school care for ages 5 to 12 years old. We do school drop off and pick up. We help the after-school children with their homework. We provide breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner. Full day program is from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Part time care is 4 hours maximum per day.
The Learning centers are designed to help children develop and learn at their own pace. The day care is arranged to provide clear pathway for children to move freely from one area to another and to interact with different groups of children. Activities include music, art, language, library, blocks building, puzzles, table games and dramatic play. We also incorporate planned field trips to enhance curriculum.

Busy Hands Group Family Day Care, LLC will use the Creative Curriculum along with the support of ABC Mouse Early Learning Academy. We believe that learning happens spontaneously; therefore, we will plan for individual needs, through child-initiated and teacher-selected activities of interest topics. The activities will reflect the classroom, family and local community to provide the children with understanding about the world around them through concrete experiences. The classroom is designed to promote independence and spontaneous learning. The classroom is divided in learning centers; Art, Science/Technology, Music, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Manipulative, and Library. The daily activities are incorporated in the learning centers and are designed for children to participate in content areas such as, literacy, language, math, science, and creative experiences, fine and motor skills.
