About Us

About Our Center

Open 6am to 6pm Monday through Friday, Busy Bodies is a state-licensed child care center where children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old share the excitement and fun of learning and play.



From our bright and welcoming classrooms to an inviting playground filled with equipment for all ages, we encourage children's exploration and discovery.


Meals & Snacks

Busy Bodies provides a variety of healthy meals and snacks. Our menu, planned by a registered dietitian, provides wholesome meals and satisfying snacks that meet federal and state requirements and guidelines.
