Busy Bodies Playhouse

Our Story

Preschool and Co-Op Classes

Here at Busy Bodies Playhouse we value the importance of providing a high quality program and play space that not only benefits the needs of the children who participate but also the community. We understand that we as Teachers/Staff members have the power to change lives, encourage others, supply children with new experiences and provide a proper learning environment that children and families will thoroughly enjoy time and time again.

We are highly conscience of keeping our play space clean, safe and sanitized with healthy non-toxic products. We pride ourselves on cleaning and sanitizing our entire facility from head to toe every day after use as well as running our "Ozonator" nightly to clean and sanitize the air. Parents can rest assured that their little ones are in a safe, clean and eco-friendly environment any time they come in to play!


Interactive Learning Books:

When COVID hit, we quickly realized that there would be a huge gap in children gaining proper access to early childhood education. We decided to take all of the educational lessons that we taught in class to our students and create a model that could benefit parents and teachers who were teaching a blended class model of hybrid and in person students. We wanted to take away the stress new homeschool parents were facing of trying to figure out "what should my child be learning?"

Every book is hand made with LOVE by people within our local community. Together we are economically empowering local families and educating children around the world!

Many families do not have access to digital devices or stable internet, in-turn, we created a simple solution to at home learning that gives every family the tools they need to teach at home, if they cannot attend a local preschool or afford to access online programming.


Our Mission:
Our mission is to give every child an opportunity to learn and explore with other children, while having fun painting, playing and using their imagination throughout our facility. We provide a safe and fun atmosphere where children and families can enjoy learning and exploring through play. We also provide an atmosphere for parents to make new friends and socially interact in our Co-Op classes while their children do the same!

Our Vision:
The vision for our facility was to set up as a "hands on" learning environment. Everything at Busy Bodies Playhouse is set up at a child's level and they have the freedom to choose what activities and stations they would like to get involved in and a chance to explore freely throughout the premises. Here at BBPH we value the learning process and believe that each child should have the opportunity to a jump start in their education and socialization process.

 Our Philosophy:
Our program has been uniquely designed to incorporate all of the things children love best! We offer Drop off style Preschool and family Co-Op classes that allows parents to get to know other parents and children and create new friendships. Our Family Co-Op Classes are ideal for parents who have children ages 6 months up to six years of age.
Throughout our facility, children will learn about nature, gardening, caring for animals, science, the environment, arts & crafts, math, letters, music, puzzles, reading and sharing. Sensory Play & discovery is a key factor in the learning process for toddlers & preschoolers; we love to see each child learn, explore and remember life long skills. We have multiple areas for children to learn and play to include a fun physical fitness style play area, infant play area, dramatic play area, an art/sensory room, a school garden and a nature playground.

About the Owner

The owner, Basha, has spent over 17 years teaching and educating children within her community. At 18, she started her career teaching preschool, and in 2006 she received her early childhood teaching certificate in California. Basha then went on to receive her director of education Certification in 2008. She later graduated from the University of Arizona Global campus with a Bachelor's in Business Organized Management and a specialization in Organization Development. In recent years, she has managed, developed, and provided consulting to other childcare centers and Franchise units in multiple states for large organizations.

She is passionate about building relationships with families and children and thoroughly enjoys building community. As a mother to a blended family of seven children, she believes that a rich learning environment helps nurture and foster space for the 100 languages inwhich a child learns and grows.

Basha is on a mission to share the joy, beauty, and profound experience of what it is like to attend a Reggio Emilia, Nature Inspired School. Basha is confident you will not find another unique, nurturing, aesthetically pleasing warm, and loving school such as Busy Bodies Playhouse.

Her goal was to create a play space that allowed an opportunity for bonding between parents/caregivers and their children, in an exciting place for children to gain the experience of being a part of a school program. She also wanted it to be a place where parents could create their own friendships and bonding experiences while their children did the same. From there, Busy Bodies Playhouse was created!

After launching a play place where families could gather, she wanted to provide a unique preschool experience for families who were in need of safe, reliable childcare. Her love and passion for Reggio Emilia inspired schools led her to create an out of the box educational space that would provide a one of a kind preschool experience for children to learn and grow in!
