Our year round conversation about animals, life processes and seasons is an ongoing exploration.
Children’s emotions are allowed to be experienced and expressed in words or art, growing
resilience and helping management of behavior.
Process oriented group projects and events such as a celebration with handmade decorations and songs teach the children to work together as a team
Art materials and easels are always available for creative, imaginative and messy play. Open-ended projects allow the children to follow their natural artistic instincts.
Music is heard when teachers sing during transition from one activity to the other or when the children play with our instrument box.
Our cozy book corner provides a quiet space for reading and one-on-one time with a teacher.
Play is the highest form of research
We have a variety of manipulates that help develop motor and cognitive skills. The block area encourages constructive play, as well as math and scientific ideas
The dress-up area is well-stocked with capes, skirts, hats and shoes where children love to explore adult roles and emotional themes
Our children go on multiple community walks around the neighborhood, visit the park and have an outdoor area where they can play and explore!
Our enrichment Programs
The Sparrow Sisters are a group of musical parents who lead sing-alongs, teach music and perform harmony-rich folk music for daycares and preschools. The children love hearing their instruments and joyful voices.
Espanate’s programs are based on immersion and repetition as we teach with creative activities. We take pride in saying that in our sessions children speak Spanish from day 1! Honeydew teachers sustain the Spanish learning in the classroom.
