"I am on a mission to share the joy, beauty, and profound experience of what it is like to attend a Reggio Emilia, Nature Inspired School. I am confident you will not find another unique, nurturing, aesthetically pleasing, warm, and loving environment such as Busy Bodies Playhouse. We have taken the time to nurture every detail of our environment and program offerings to ensure a well rounded, high quality educational experience for both the parent and the child. It is my goal to knit our little community into a place that provides education, friendship and resources to both the child and the parent. I truly believe that school should feel like an extension of home for each child to learn and grow in."

Behavioral Support Specialist

Miss Beth-Marie

One-on-One Support Coach

Ms. Beth-Marie has been working with children for more than 20 years, including work as a lead teacher, substitute teacher, teacher trainer, program director, parent coach, and play therapist. She provides individual, family, and school-based therapy through Early Connections Child & Family Counseling. If your child has difficulty integrating into a preschool setting, has been disenrolled from previous schools, has experienced difficult life circumstances, therapy may help. Beth-Marie takes a person-in-environment approach to therapy, understanding that emotions and behaviors happen in a context, and this is why she provides therapy at school rather than just in-office.


"I smile every time I step into the Busy Bodies classroom. I love working with the teachers and families here and appreciate the school's openness to having me come in and work with students who need a little extra help, and their willingness to cooperate with me to find the best strategies to support those students."
