The open-house for Busy Bee’s Day Care playgrounds in Roy, Utah is over and years of play have just begun on three unique PlayCraft playground systems.
The Busy Bee’s Playhouse grand opening for the playgrounds was attended by well over 500 people, children and their accompanying grown-ups. It was phenomenal sight to see, you can read the Standard Examiner’s news article here.
Although all the hoopla of the grand opening event has calmed, there is still a “Busy Bee Buzz” at the child care center. Teachers report they can’t get the children off the new playground equipment when play time is over.
Well, we at LuckyDog love hearing that kind of news, so we think it’s only fair to share with you what all the excitement is about.
There are three distinct play areas designated by age; Toddler, ages 12 months to 2 years, Pre-school, ages 2-5 years and School-age, from 5-12 years old.
The Toddler Playground area is fully shaded with a large fabric shade. There is an interactive play house, clubhouse, and an age appropriate playground structure for little ones 12 months to 2 years.
The Pre-School Playground has a full Playcraft playground structure with age appropriate elements like the with a one-piece spiral slide so tender bottoms won’t hit the slide bumps. In addition to the structure there’s a sand and water table.
A custom electronic driver panel, pretend gas pump and traffic signs, all surrounded by an awesome trike-track. To round it all up, fun directional signage was painted on the newly formed concrete pad. All in all, the preschoolers at Busy Bee’s are very busy checking out all their new toys.
School Age Playground boasts a full PlayCraft system that fills the entire courtyard. I just love the Boogie Board, a PlayCraft exclusive, because it challenges balance and promotes group play; the kids race around and in circles.
I also love the spiral step climber. It runs the entire height of the playground for a super eye-foot coordination challenge. The Spin-Max-Tower is another PlayCraft favorite, kids love dizzy-making and this toy is perfect for a boat-load of children to play all at the same time.
All equipment is bright and colorful; the fabric shades on each of the three play areas are different colors. The School Age play area has two fabric Shade-Sails that tower taller than the building, when you’re on the highway approaching the Busy Bee’s Playhouse your eye is drawn to them.
It makes me wonder if enrollment has increased, ha, ha, because there’s not a kid out there that wouldn’t want to play at Busy Bee’s.
Busy Bee’s child care and schools are in a very unique setting. Dove Covenant owns Heritage Park Care Center for skilled nursing and rehabilitation services at the same location. Busy Bee’s is the “only” Childcare Facility owned and operated by Dove Covenant. This makes for a very nice mix of young and old on the same property.
Weighing in on what the children think of their new playground is always fun. However, Covenant Dove, the owners that hired LuckyDog for the project also get to weighed in on what they think of their new playground:
“I have been receiving updates from Kevin, Facilities Coordinator and Phil, Director of Heritage Park Care Center, along the way and they are both thrilled with the end results.
“I commend CJ for all the hard work and devotion he put into this project. You two make a great team and I am so glad you were selected for this project.” Andy Shafer, Director of Construction
Thank you CJ and your fantastic crew for the excellent, top notch care and attention to detail. I agree with Andy, you are to be commended. I’m a LuckyDog to get to work with such a great team.
See you at the playground.
