Busy Bee Preschool teaching philosophies include inquiry instruction and cooperative, problem-based, explorative learning in the effort to motivate and support the ability to analyze, understand, and apply information through both teacher-directed and self-directed interaction, with an emphasis on the importance of citizenship.
