Busy Bees

2-year olds | Mon/Wed, Tues/Thurs

Ms. Malea & Ms. Heather

Welcome to the Busy Bee 2-year old class!

We look forward to a wonderful year with your child!

Classroom Philosophy

A 2 year old is full of excitement and a desire to learn! Our goal is to create an environment where students feel loved, safe and can explore and learn every day. We will play, read, create, and move to learn about the world around us. Working to share with our friends and play with those around us is also very important at this age and a major goal in our class.

Our Teachers


Malea Bastian

Malea Bastian is beginning her 6th year at Nativity, but has many years of experience teaching preschool. She has three boys, Jordan-17, Brennan-15 and Ian-11, and is very excited to be a part of the Nativity Preschool family and teach your sweet busy bees!


Heather Fahy

I’m so excited to assist Malea and join the Busy Bees. I am an Asheville native and have a BA in psychology and an AS in veterinary technology and have been working as a licensed veterinary technician for the past ten years. I have also previously had the pleasure and joy to teach special needs children while using horses to facilitate their learning. After having my son Nathan, I have been a stay-at-home mom and enjoy watching him learn and grow. Nativity had been a big part of his learning and socialization and I am grateful and honored to be able to aid in the education and care of your precious children. I enjoy spending time in nature, hanging out with my family, hiking, yoga and meditation.
