This is the only daycare that I would use in Southaven. They actually care about the children. After 3 horrible experiences with other daycares, we tried Busy Bodies and my daughter was SUPER happy there.
Busy bodies creates a safe and fun environment for the children that attend there. Not to mention the kids learn so much and are so much more advanced when it is time to start school. The teachers are diverse and very friendly and the owners Mrs. Debbie and Mr. Allan are heaven sent. I could not imagine my children not attending this daycare.
We looked from Bartlett to Hernando and hands down Busy Bodies beat the other facilities. Debbie was so patient with me and the twin s teachers were amazing! Anytime I needed anything they were there. She talked me through my daughter testing me and throwing fits to get attention- Debbie told me what to do- fits stopped immediately. Every month I called asking for advice on parenting. This is not just my experience- anyone that has actually has been enrolled there more than a day will tell you these same stories! Since May my husband was relocated to Denver. Debbie has helped talk me through what to look for and what questions to ask- specifically for my twins for developmental growth, social growth and education because she knows all of the kids and parents on a personal level. Because of her we found an amazing daycare that I would not have been able to find on my own. Between the care that my kids received and the low cost no one can beat BB! By the way Colorado is ranked #10 as a state in education and Mississippi is ranked #51 including DC as a state. Because of the education my twins received at BB they were ahead in their new daycare in Colorado!
"I have personally worked for Busy Bodies for the last 8 years and pretty much know all the ins and outs of this place. Mrs Debbie is like a second mother to me and I always always knew I was taken care of there and outside of work along with all the other babies and families that are familiar with Busy Bodies. There is not another daycare I would work for and actually loved going to my job every single day because I formed such an unbelievable bond with so many of the babies and their families, even outside of school hours. Mrs Debbie is always in it for the right reasons and whole heatedly enjoys her job and would do anything for anyone that crossed her path, aside from being one of the friendliest people I have ever met! I love this place and every single person involved with this place!"
For someone to post something so negative is such a shame. It sounds like something personal which is even sadder to disgrace such a wonderful christian daycare. My children are the second generation at the daycare. I have personally known the owners and all the teachers that have come and gone over the past 15 years. Not only the staff but I know almost all of the parents as well. Everyone loves this daycare. It is a part of our family. I drive 20 minutes out of my way each day passing six other daycares to take my children to a place that I know that they will be safe, loved, taken care of 110% and not have to ever worry about anything. Not only that but I work at a local TV station and I personally know everything that occurs at this daycare and I can guarantee you that no child has ever been harmed here. It has the highest rating in Desoto Co. My children call the teachers their second mommies. I would trust any one of them with my childs life!
Hmmm obviously the person who wrote the review does not have a child at the daycare. I am a parent there myself. I find it almost humorous to Use the words this person used. My child runs to the teachers and sometimes does not want to leave. She is always singing songs she learned there and bringing home art projects. I have been up there many times of the day and my sweet child is always laughing and engaging in the activity. I guess after 20 years in the business, the owner might actually know what she is doing. Have I mentioned all the teachers actually stay? Yes they all want to be there and they all love the kids. Most of them are parents as well, hmmm I know I would not want my child going somewhere that I did not personally want to work for. Spend some time there it you will see this is an extra ordinary daycare. Thank u busy bodies for being my child's home while I work.
I have known Debbie and Allan since 2005 and when my wife and I had our child, we knew which daycare we would trust with our child. We have loved every moment of having our child at Busy Bodies and our child wakes up excited to go to daycare. We love see what our child has learned and hearing what our child has learned. My wife and I love and trust the staff and we even hire the staff to baby sit so my wife and I could have date night. THANK YOU Debbie, Allan & Busy Bodies' staff for everything you do and for being who you. The negative review from August 11th looks be to from someone who wants everything their way and if they do not get it, the leave with the ball and complain about things. I question if their child was ever actually enrolled at the daycare. There is no director just Debbie and Allan are the owners. You will not find a daycare in Desoto County better than Busy Bodies and most daycares have a high turn-over of employees and Busy Bodies does not, which says a lot for how Debbie operates the daycare. If I find out who wrote that negative review, I will make sure that I do not do business with them even if it cost me more money to do business with someone else.
In 2008, my husband's job transferred us to Southaven, MS. My daughter was 7 months old and had been kept by a family friend in her home with no other children. I had no knowledge of any daycares in the Southaven area but was getting desperate as time was running out til I went back to work. I found Busy Bodies by an internet search. Mrs. Debbie, the owner, answered the phone the day I called. The first thing she told me was that they were a Christian based daycare. She had my attention. Little did I know that they would become part of my family. We moved back to Arkansas about a year later. I have compared every daycare since then to Busy Bodies...no daycare has compared. The teachers are loving, kind & knowledgable. My daughter's favorite teacher has even become part of our family and we see her every time we visit Southaven. Thank you Mrs. Debbie, Mr Allan, and staff for taking care of our baby girl.
