Tanya has been great to work with. She pays attentions to the details and sees the big picture. I know she will create something that is special and serves her community. Moreover, she understands the importance of learning through play, and that kids need to move! I appreciate that Tanya is including a large outdoor play area for her childcare center in Bella Vista. Above all, great location in a wonderful community.
I have known Tanya Murray for a long time. I enjoy watching her and Randy raise their 5 kids. Tanya is an example of strong family values, deep faith and obedience. In addition, she provides their children with exploring and learning experiences. In other words, there is much joy in their family. Consequently, I know Tanya will bring joy to Busy Minds. Above all, I highly recommend this childcare center in Bella Vista based on the years of watching her as a Mother, Wife and business owner!
This would be the greatest childcare center for your kids! The owners are dedicated to education and providing learning experiences for all levels. Any parent can be confident that their child is in loving hands at Busy Minds Academy in Bella Vista.
Busy Minds has been a very warm and comforting experience with my two children. My son in the preschool program loves getting dropped off at school with his friends. This wasn’t always the case with previous care centers. My infant daughter is always clean, happy, and rested at pick up. Written and photo updates are sent throughout the day to keep us up to date. Neither child shows any hesitation to go spend time with their teachers/friends at Busy Minds. The classrooms are clean and set up is mesmerizing to the children. The infant room is also clean, organized, calm, & soothing. Very pleased with our experience.
We love Busy Minds Academy so much! The staff is friendly, professional, caring and fun. The Facility is beautiful, filled with creative and thoughtful ways for the kids to play. Our daughter's favorite part is the custom built playground that has a large outdoor kitchen, a real boat turned into a sand box and so much more! The children spend tons of time outside, they enjoy picnics, music class, arts & crafts and learning taught in a fun way. I would recommend Busy Minds to anyone looking for childcare, our children will go there as long as they can!
Busy Minds is the most warm and welcoming environment to work and care for kiddos! Tanya and the staff are the kindest and most considerate people I have ever met. Not does Tanya make sure Busy Minds is the best environment for the children to learn and develop at any stage they may be in, but she is also so understanding and caring for any needs an employee may have. She is always prompt to find answers and solutions to any small bump that may arise. I have never loved a workplace more!
My son is currently enrolled 2 days a week here in the toddler class! It has only been 3 weeks but so far so good! There have been a lot of changes from one week to the next but I think the reasoning would be that they are still trying to get in the groove of being a brand new center as well as trying their best to adapt to all of the guidelines for Covid. Other than that, everything is wonderful and when the kinks get worked out it will be 5 stars for sure! They use the Brightwheel App to keep in touch with parents throughout the day and that is my favorite! I love seeing updates and photos to let me know how his day is going! The staff is great and everyone is so genuinely kind and happy to be there! I love their vision for learning and I like to think that we will remain a part of the Busy Minds family for years to come! Our son has a great time when he is there and comes home happy!
My 4 year old has been at Busy Minds for 3 weeks. She is in LOVE and so are we! She is excited to wake up on school days and playing and learning with her new friends. I LOVE the flexibility in hours and days. I love receiving daily updates and photos detailing what my child is learning and doing! Tanya and her staff are very genuine and I feel completely at ease leaving my daughter there!
The drive to the school is beautiful & peaceful, allowing for a nice calm morning. Drop off and pick up are very smooth & not hectic what so ever. My son is pretty attached to being everywhere I am & he is always SO excited to get to school. He wakes up, gets himself dressed & doesn’t even want breakfast he’s just ready to go! The teachers & directors are very helpful and extremely responsive when messaging through their user friendly app. Definitely the best choice we could have made for my sons first year of pre school. 🙂
My son has been going to Busy Minds since they opened! The staff personable, professional and very responsive! As soon as my son wakes up in the morning, he is talking about going to see his friends at school, which makes drop off very easy! I would highly recommend Busy Minds for anyone looking for child care options in this area!
I look up to Tanya in so many ways. Her parenting skills are outstanding. I would trust her with my children, one hundred percent!
As first time parents finding childcare was so nerve racking. We wanted a place that would love our baby like we do & somewhere we’d never feel too far away. Busy Minds is this & more! The staff has made us feel so welcome from day one! We receive constant updates & pictures throughout the day on their app, so we always know our baby is in great hands. We love being a part of the Busy Minds family!
Absolutely love this daycare so much! I was so terrified to put my 8 month old in daycare for the first time ever and am relieved to say that Tanya and Miss Faith have taken my worries away! They always keep me updated and send pictures throughout the day which I love! If you're looking for a great place and safe place to leave your children throughout the day, I highly recommend Busy Minds!
I absolutely love working with Tanya and the other staff members at Busy Minds. Tanya takes into consideration what her employees are telling her and makes the environment a bright place to be. It was obvious from the moment we met that her intentions were to create the most loving, challenging, at home feeling preschool that Northwest Arkansas had to offer! He drive makes me want to succeed as well.
We are so happy we choose Busy Minds! We love the philosophy of learning through play. The building and playground are amazing! They stay connected with us throughout the day so we know how our kiddo is doing!
Busy Minds has been a wonderful experience for my pre-schooler so far. The center feels warm and homey and we love the focus on outdoor learning and play! Communication with the owner, director and classroom teacher has been open and consistent which makes me feel safe as a parent. The staff has been more than helpful with questions and concerns. My son attends 2 days a week and he looks forward to those 2 days so much!
Incredible staff and facility. This was the first time my son had gone to day care / pre-school, and they've done an incredible job helping him transition. He has so much fun there, and is always talking about want to go to "pre-school". It's been great to find such a wonderful child care provider in a more rural setting.
My child absolutely LOVES his time at Busy Minds! They have so many hands-on learning experiences throughout the day, as well as caring teachers who help him navigate working with other kids.
We love Busy Minds daycare! My son is so exited to go to big school! We highly recommend Busy Minds.
I have known the owner, Tanya Murray, for 13 years. You will not find a more genuine individual, who is passionately dedicated to giving the highest quality nurturing and educational experience to every child. Her vision will allow children to thrive in an environment designed for learning in the most natural way, through play. It has truly been a blessing knowing her and her family.
