SUMMER CAMP

Welcome to Beeplanet's Playschool 

 

We think of Beeplanet as a magical place to grow your child's curiosity and confidence to make new friends, learn new ideas, discovery a world outside of yours and feel safe to just be. 

 

We do this gradually.

In the Fall, we start with a Bridge Program that allows both you and your child to practice our program on Monday and Thursday to ease into the process of separation. Creating Trust between one another is where we begin. Learning about the program by doing it together allows everyone to feel comfortable. Separation is possible because we all feel ready.

 

In The New Year we shift into three days M,T, TH. Focusing On language development with our Nursery Rhyme Curriculum. Learning to talk is very exciting! But doing it using movement is really fun and social. Making props and going on adventures only adds to the fun. Falling down is the meme and Humpty Dumpty, Jack n Jills, Jack be Nimble and of course  Little Ms Muffit all get entangled trying to find Mary's Lost Sheep!

 

The Spring session is all about Space: We go to the Moon! This is a 7 week concept that grows our senses each week and encourages your child's curiosity to look up and wonder! Why is Earth just right? Not to hot not too cold. Is there life on Mars? What is a gas Giant, a comet or a rainbow? We explore Jupiter with sounds as well as textures. What if an Alien landed at Beeplanet what would we do? What language would we speak? What would it look like? What would it eat? We all become explorers in our own way....and launch! 5,4,3,2,1...To eternity & beyond!

At Beeplanet’s Playschool your child will quickly become accustomed to the daily activities and routines that gently guide them throughout the day allowing them to relax and trust their teachers lead. In time they will adapt to the Beeplanet rhythm and beable to enjoy, learn and finally explore on their own. It's very exciting to watch them grow!

 

Playschool provides multiple indoor and outdoor PlayCenters that include focuses on Fine Motor, Make Believe, Storytime, Math Games, Art, Sports, Hiking, Scootering; Music, Dancing, Yoga, Cooking, Tinkering, Discovery, and Gardening. 

 

Opportunity for self-responsibility is also a daily focus. Activities include potty training, brushing teeth, putting on their own shoes, deciding if they need a jacket, learning how to open and close their own lunches and putting away toys into their cubbies all together helps to build their self-confidence and inter-dependence.

 

Unique Themes each season keeps the program fresh, builds vocabulary, expands curiosity and enriches our make believe playtime. Bears, Nursery Rhymes, Nature, Space Exploration and different Cultures are some of the themes that we use to inspire learning and to create. 

 

Beeplanet Lectures Series Offers Guidance:

  Understanding your child's Temperament & Intelligence.

  Working on Discipline issues in the home and new solutions.

  Realizing Long & Short Term Goals & Sustainability.
