Our leader of the week brings in a special toy from home to share with the class during circle time. Everyone has the opportunity to hold and ask questions about their friends toy. During the sharing we are taking turns and asking questions.

Communicating while playing grocery store involves saying “May I help you?” and “Thank you, have a nice day”.

We also practice taking turns. For instance, taking turns so everyone has the opportunity to be the store clerk and the customer. These are all important steps in developing social skills.

Learning through play is just another day at

At Busy Little Preschoolers, your child will learn by example and positive reinforcement how to be a leader, how to show respect for teachers, parents, and each other, the importance of honesty, and how to be charitable.

The teachers at Busy Little Preschoolers believe that each child is a gift. We believe important life skills and values have been lost among the race for achievement found in many public schools today.

We truly believe we offer an educational beginning that can’t be found anywhere else, and we look forward to meeting you.


Learning through Play


Life Skills and Values


Children learn by doing, this is why at Busy Little Preschoolers we learn through playing. When we line up for circle time we choose numbers out of a bag then match the number to a numbered square on the carpet. They are excited to choose a number and find where they are sitting for the day. They don’t realize they are learning to recognize their number, and also remembering their number for our second circle time followed by lining up on that number for the day to go outdoors.

We learn our names by playing games. We throw our names in the air then find them on the floor. While playing these games they are also learning their friends names. So not only are we learning our names and our friends names we are learning to recognize the letters in the names. 

Singing songs while cleaning up, washing our hands, cutting with scissors, holding a crayon, and following directions is just more fun when you are singing all about it! We sing for everything! You would be surprised how singing to use walking feet rather than telling a child to walk works. Try it, you would be amazed!
