Bees’′ Circus is a children’s music and play program. It offers a variety of parent/child programs that are devoted to the social, emotional, and physical development of children. We offer eight weekly classes for children aged newborn to four. The activities are designed to improve balance, coordination and other sensory stimuli while reinforcing good social skills in a group play environment. Bees’#8217â€™ Circus also offers music classes. Children aged between 16 and 24 months will learn to dance and sing, while also learning about different rhythms and beats. Each week, new musical styles such as jazz, classical, and contemporary will be introduced. Activities such as song and song exploration and movement are all designed to give parents and their children a positive musical experience.
In Monroe, the only program similar to Bees’ Circus is available. Though the city does run some classes for children through their parks and recreation department, they are not part of a comprehensive growth program for pre-schoolers.
The central location of Bees’, Circus is in the new commercial district that serves Monroe’s wealthy northwest. The northwest corner of the city has seen a tremendous increase in housing over the last five years. To support the rapid growth of the population, more than 3,500 housing units have been constructed in the region. These units are mostly being rented or purchased by young families. There is currently no park program in the area. The area’s 10,000 families will benefit from a new park in the coming three years.
