This is our Little Learners community

Children between ages 3 months to 16 months, receive loving, nurturing attention in an open and airy classroom; our program offers tranquility, stimulation, and fun age-specific activities engaging your child's natural curiosity.

We provide an inviting and caring atmosphere for young learners to explore the continually expanding world around them. The Little learners have an environment filled with responsive interactions and positive reinforcement; an individualized approach that meets the developmental needs of each child. Our intent is to give your child a place where they can feel safe and happy and can begin to build confidence and a positive self-image. Our goal is to stimulate and challenge your infant or toddler by constantly singing, talking, holding, playing with them and presenting them with age and developmentally appropriate learning experiences.

Your baby's first years of life are an amazing time, filled with discovery and enormous growth. Infants and young children learn an abundance of new skills each day, such as how to imitate sounds and facial expressions, pulling, reaching and grasping objects, smiling and laughing. These milestones are not only key events of an infant's development, but they are also building blocks for abilities to come like crawling, walking, and talking.

Throughout each day, we practice reaching, grasping, rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, climbing, throwing, catching, kicking, cooing and talking; whichever developmental stage your child happens to be in at the time.

We build on these skills learned as an infant, by encouraging problem solving, cooperation, language, and social skills. We celebrate and embrace each developmental milestone with enthusiasm, persistence, and joy.

If your child has a hard time with morning departures, your child’s teacher will work with you on developing a routine that makes the transition easier for everybody involved. In general, it is best to stick to predictable routine, give them one hug and kiss, then leave.  With consistency, most children adapt easily within two weeks.  

Infants and toddlers are enthusiastic about observing and exploring their world and at Busy Minds we provide an uncompromised environment that allows them the freedom they need to explore and learn as they grow.

The adult/child ratio in our LL unit is 1:3.

The crèche stays open most of the year and we are open from 7:00am till 6:30pm each week day (Monday to Friday).

We are closed in observance of all state and national holidays. Some of these closures cannot be pre-determined but we promise to make every effort to give you at least 2 days' notice when possible.

Christmas                 Two (2) weeks holiday
