This Monday and Wednesday Honey Bee class will be running concurrently with the Caterpillar Class and will share the same start and end times. Learners in these classes (Honey Bee M + W, and Caterpillar) will have separate curriculums, their own lead teachers, and separate developmentally appropriate morning circle times.

Honey Bee Objectives
A honey bee curriculum is play based allowing the children to learn skills in a structured environment by play and then turning them into learning moments.
  • Behavioral & Social Skills- (sharing, circle time, personal space, self care, classroom routines and listening to directions.)
  • Name Recognition/Pre-Writing Skills- (fine motor exercises.)
  • Pre-Math Skills- (numbers, shapes, and the concept of big and small.)
  • Social and Emotional Development- (using words to describe our feelings and apologizing.)
