Our programs are designed to meet the individual needs of every child according to developmental stages such socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.

Developing happy children and fostering independence for self-confidence and respect for themselves and others is our main mission.
We welcome children from different linguistic and cultural groups. We create an environment and curriculum that promote positive attitudes toward differences whether those differences are in gender, culture or language. We, at LBCCC believe that our program and services offer developmentally appropriate curriculum. We strive to enhance social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth in the most important ages of their lives.
Our program fosters curiosity; creativity and self-esteem by taking into account children’s abilities and interests. We believe that a partnership between parents and caregivers is essential for a positive child care experience. We also believe that children learn best when surrounded by teachers who are sensitive to the needs of each child, well trained, good level of educational background and highly experienced.
Our curriculum is planned to give children opportunities to explore areas of language, math, art, social studies and science readiness. We help children grow into integrated person. As educators, we believe that all children have a right to respect, regardless of their abilities. We provide an environment that is safe yet stimulating and a curriculum that challenges them through creativity, self-choice, and learning through play. Therefore, our program supports the following philosophy about children and their growth:
- Each child individually learns in different ways, at a different pace, by different approaches and at different ages of maturation.
- A positive self-concept develops in children who can fulfill their goals, accomplish tasks on their own, and cooperate with others and receive positive feelings from others.
- Self-disciplined children can direct their efforts towards fulfillment of their goals. Children learn self-discipline through understanding, commitment, and reinforcement.
- Self-reliance is achieved by allowing children to do as many things for independently according to their potentials and limitations but keeping in mind new skills.
We believe that children experience the greatest growth when they feel secure and part of a community. Therefore, we at LBCCC will provide a warm, caring, loving and safe environment for our children.
Together, we will establish routines that are predictable and consistent. All children will be treated with gentleness, honesty and respect. We will encourage them to treat others in this manner.
We offer infant, toddler, preschool, and school age programs.
We also offer family discounts, if a family has more than one child. Call us for more information.
Little Bee’s Child Care Center’s mission and purpose is lovingly and thoughtfully based on the individual and holistic teaching styles, so colorfully extended throughout the Center ; with respect to the learning curves instituted by current educational standards, and each individual child’s personal goals and abilities.
Little Bee's staff offer experience and care to make your child feel as comfortable as possible in our center. Our teachers encourage children to use critical thinking and problem solving skills in their daily experiences. The classroom environment is carefully designed to reflect the children’s interests and to cultivate positive self-image, independence, and interdependence. We foster equal opportunity in learning and education for all children regardless of race, sex, religion and national origin.
LBCCC education program is grounded in traditional and well-established early childhood educational philosophies.
The mission of our program is to prepare teachers who demonstrate the commitment and capacity to reform schooling and education for all young children’s educational needs.
It is very important to us to build strong partnership with you to ensure the best experience for your children. Little Bee’s staff provide daily communication with parents and always open to suggestions and requests. As much as we love to care for and guide children, we believe that parents should also be encouraged to be active participants in their children’s education. Parents and teacher share a common priority: providing the best that they possibly can for the child. Working together, we believe that optimum development will be obtained.
Parents will be updated regularly regarding their child’s educational goals. Meetings outside of the regular conference times can also be arranged. Twice a year we hold parent-teacher conferences to go over your child’s progress, work and interactions with others. Our staff are required to continue their education in the Early Childhood field each year. All of our teachers and teacher assistants are trained in CPR and First Aide.
Little Bee’s Child Care Center has achieved accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children. (NAEYC) - the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals.
We’re proud to have earned the mark of quality from NAEYC, and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards. NAEYC Accreditation lets families in our community know that children in our program are getting the best care and early learning experiences possible. In the 25 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. It was not an easy process for our center and our teachers and assistants. Little Bee’s Child Care Center has been going through the accreditation process for a year. We had to go through an extensive self –study process, measuring the program and its services against the ten NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and more than 400 related Accreditation Criteria. NAEYC- accredited programs are also subject to unannounced visits during their accreditation, which lasts for five years.
