Welcome to Busy Bees where we believe in learning through play. At Busy Bees, learning is ‘hands on’ and very interactive. We like to keep our little bees buzzing with wonderful daily activities involving creative art, music & dance, interactive carpet time and lively story telling. We make learning come to life in our circle time activities where enjoyment is combined with mastery of the phonetic alphabet (letter sounds), number sense activities and learning all about the exciting world around us. The children move around the nursery during the day to different classrooms, where they discover literacy, numbers, investigation and discovery, art and craft and Arabic. The days are filled with activities designed to enhance and promote learning within a controlled, but creative, atmosphere.
Our classes are divided according to age (on 1st September of the academic year), so that children are placed with other children who are at a similar developmental stage:
Owls class (18 - 30 months
Butterfly class (30 - 36 months)
BumbleBee (30 - 36 months)
Kitten class (3 - 3.6 years)
Bunny class (3.7 - 4.5 years)
Our classrooms are equipped to stimulate each child and allow them to play, learn and explore. Our play areas include an outdoor play centre with sand play, Busy Bees town, construction and mark making areas. Our toddler supermarket and role play areas are just a few of the many activities available at Busy Bees, which are incorporated into the daily timetable. Pretend play gives the children a sense of the world around them. We encourage this with wonderful costumes, hats, masks and face paint. Role play and puppet shows are an important way for children to learn about how they interract with the exciting world around them as well as how to express and work through emotional concerns.
Every month at Busy Bees we explore a new theme which focuses our students on a new area of discovery and lets them find out new and exciting information about the amazing world around them. themes include · Nursery Rhymes and Finger Play, All About Me, Living things, Transportation, Light & Air, Environment, International Studies and UAE culture, Sprots, Dinosaurs, Seasons, Occupations, Circus and music, and Stories we tell
At Busy Bees we love for our children to be children and to that end we hold lots of fun activity days:
We honour our Mums in our annual Mother’s Day concert. Active involvement of parents is encouraged at Busy Bees and any of our parents are welcome to volunteer to read a story, or help out during 'special' days like outside trips.
At Busy Bees, the learning day is filled with singing & dancing, arts & crafts, physical activities, water & sand play, mark-making, play dough, constructive playtime, freeplay, stories and so much more. Every day is a new learning experience filled with fun and laughter.
At Busy Bees we like to give our students the experience of outside educational trips, incluidmng the zoo and the park, and encourage parents to join us in this experience.
We teach our students to be kind, caring, loving and polite little people. Social, emotional and moral development are important aspects of learning for us and we encourage manners and polite behaviour at all times. We believe that a strong base will give your child a fantastic future.
If our students are happy then so are we – why not come along to Busy Bees today to see what’s buzzing in our hive of activity!
