Bizzy Bee's Family Child Care is a Let's Move Child Care. We Strive for 5 everyday by getting outside and enjoying physical activity, limiting screen time, serving healthy and nutritious snacks and meals, beverages are milk and water available throughout the day, and I support a mother's choice to breastfeed her baby by working with her to safely store and feed her breast milk and by providing an area for her to breastfeed her child or to pump.

Children are not required to sleep, but must refrain from bothering the other children that may be sleeping or resting and may choose a quiet activity to do by themselves.
Infants are able to sleep on their own schedule.
Each child is provided his/her own bedding – cot, pillow, sheets and blanket. Infants have their own pack n play. Items are kept separate and are washed when soiled and at least weekly.
Children are monitored while sleeping and are with an adult if they do not nap.
Hands are washed upon arrival to the child care, before meals and snacks, food preparation, after using the bathroom, sneezing/wiping/coughing into hands and after diapering.
Each child has their own clean hand towel everyday.

Bizzy Bee's Family Child Care is an Eco-Healthy Child Care. What does that mean? It means I take extra care to provide your child with the healthiest and least toxic environment as possible. From BPA free bottles and cups, radon testing, to lead free paint I am always researching ways to make the environment safer for the children in care.
