Have you ever seen or heard of a diaper cake? I had seen a couple diaper cakes at baby showers and always wondered how they were made. I actually thought they were all glued together and the diapers were unusable, but quite the contrary. The diapers are held together with rubber bands and/or ...

Buzzy Bee preschool is a great preschool. I started there when I was 2 1/2 years old and now I'm in the 7th grade and an A student. Buzzy Bee preschool taught me a lot when I was there, Ms. Sonia taught me Spanish, numbers, how to write my name, and the alphabet. When I was four my parents took me to kindergarten for a test to see if I can attend school and I passed thanks to Buzzy Bee preschool and Ms. Sonia. At Buzzy Bee there are a lot of toys donated by past students and outside there is a fun play ground for the kids to play on. Now when I do not have school I sometimes go to Ms. Sonia's to help her with the kids and all of them are so smart. There is a 3 year old who knows how to write her name all by herself. All the kids have very good manners like please and thank you and table manners. Overall Buzzy Bee preschool is a great school for little kids. From: Maya
