BUSY BODIES Planned Play is Glendale’s premier educational play program offering classes to children ages 4 months to 5 years of age. Unlike other programs, BUSY BODIES classes are led by educators who understand the importance and value of active play. West Valley Mompreneurs Robin Dieman and Ardelle Kanode developed the business. Classes are age-appropriate and involve song, music and movement. Their Motto is a simple one, “We Make Learning Child’s Play.”

“BUSY BODIES is not only about the children learning through play, but the adults as well”, says co-owner Ardelle Kanode. Each class offers an enormous amount of information as to the benefits of the many songs and room full of equipment. The ever-changing themes challenge not only gross motor skills, but eye-hand coordination, peripheral vision and spatial awareness. “Your child may think they’re just tossing a beanbag, but we know they are developing eye-hand coordination, depth perception and motor skills,” adds co-owner Robin Dieman.
A variety of weekly classes are currently open for enrollment, along with a summer camp program that runs Tuesday through Friday from 2-5 p.m. especially designed for children 3.5 to 5 years of age. Birthday parties are a popular option for parents looking for a one-of-a kind interactive birthday experience.
BUSY BODIES Planned Play’s Mission: To provide a fun, safe, planned play environment which encourages physical development while promoting self-expression and fostering positive self – esteem through fitness, fun and learning. BUSY BODIES Planned Play is located in the Citadelle Shopping Center, conveniently located just south of the 101 off of 59thAvenue at 19420 North 59th Avenue, Suite A103 Glendale Arizona 85308.
