About Busy Bear Nursery School
Busy Bear Nursery School began in Kathy’s home. Among her earliest graduates were her two children. As enrollment grew, the founder moved the school to St. Gabriel’s Parish Center in 1989 where we are still based today. After a renovation to the Parish Center at the end of 2006, Busy Bear students utilize 6 state of the art classrooms and an outdoor playground and a full size indoor gymnasium for active play during the cold winter months.
The Mission Statement of Busy Bear Nursery School is to provide a quality learning experience within an engaging educational atmosphere. Keeping in mind that purpose and recognizing the value of first-hand experience, the curriculum has been developed to prepare the child for entrance into Kindergarten.
The founder of Busy Bear Nursery School is Kathleen Flood. In 1986, she envisioned a fun, healthy environment for children to gain essential skills that are necessary to early childhood development. Kathleen Flood, is a registered nurse, a licensed elementary and a preschool teacher with nearly three decades of experience in early childhood development.
