Alin and Talin are the founders of The Busy Mind children's early learning, play, and activity center. Inspired by their background of child development and early education, Alin and Talin decided to create a space where children can successfully manage life tasks such as forming peer relationships, developing communication skills, and effectively achieving developmental milestones. The founders of The Busy Mind have over 15 years of experience working in the field of child development. Together, they have a common goal in creating a safe, fun, and educational learning experience for each child.
The Busy Mind is a learning and activity center where we provide mommy and me classes, open play, arts and crafts activities, and music and movement. We provide age-appropriate guided activities that encourage growth and early learning.

A Message From Our Founders
Our philosophy is developing the whole child through concepts such as character building, exploration and discovery, and instilling key characteristics such as respect and responsibility of one’s space and community.
We instill a comprehensive management program known as conscious discipline, which is a curriculum based on social and emotional growth and developmentally appropriate practices. This practice is designed to adjust the environment of adults first in order to transform and change the environment of children. Both adults and children will able to learn the skills needed to successfully manage life tasks.
