Preschool 4

  • Preschool 4

    A good relationship between the Beehive teachers and students is critical to develop positive attitudes toward schooling. It is the job of our teachers and other staff to create a feeling of warmth and support. They get to know each child so they can personalize and individualize learning. The teachers at Beehive form a partnership with families to acknowledge their importance in the student’s education and help them extend classroom learning at home.

    Beehive Children’s Center strives in its ability to create a learning environment that centers on each individual child’s needs. Teachers and administrators consider the physical layout, social climate, organization of materials, and cultural factors. Classrooms are arranged by subject areas (e.g., math, reading, writing, science, art, music, construction, drama) with interesting and relevant materials, tools, and other resources easily accessible and well organized. There are spaces for the whole group to gather (on the floor and at tables), and areas for children to work in small groups or individually. Outdoor spaces are designed to promote vigorous physical activity, social interaction, and engagement with nature. At Beehive we surround ourselves with a climate that is warm, respectful, fun, and welcoming. On rainy and snowy days Beehive Children’s Center also have their very own GYM Room!!!

    Children learn best when they follow a consistent schedule each day. With some flexibility for interests and special events, the schedule includes whole-group interactive learning, small-group workshops, one-on-one conferring and teaching, student-initiated projects, and times when the group leaves the room for special classes Music enrichment and Karate).

    Using the ingredients of active learning, adults design meaningful educational experiences based on standards, CT ELDS, competencies, and other goals. Teachers at Beehive use an integrated curriculum and real-life situations to help students make connections between subject areas, for example, between reading and science, mathematics and the arts, or health and social studies.
