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.



Alyssa, Honeybees Teacher


Hello my name is Alyssa Robbins, and I have a passion when it comes to working with young children! I was born in Lubbock, Texas where I lived until I moved up here to Madison, Wisconsin in December 2019. I have a major in Creative Writing with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. What I really like about The Learning Garden is the fact that the teachers work hard to connect with the children that they take care of and watch grow! One of my favorite quotes is “There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child. There are seven million.” by Walt Streightiff. A somewhat interesting fact is that I can sleep with a mask on.
