The Honeybee Room


To learn, a child must be able to play. By allowing a child to interact with items in their environment through play, the child will discover their environment on a personal level. This will create an atmosphere of learning that will span the disciplines that will be needed in the future to become a productive person in life. Through play a child learns math, science, vocabulary, social skills, cause and effect, as well as small muscle and large muscle development and cognitive skills.
