SUMMER CAMP

Welcome to Beeplanet's Playschool, a magical place to grow your child's curiosity; to help them make friends; to make potty training natural;

to practice, practice, practice transitions and to above all celebrate their wins with encouragement, support and love.

 

We do this gradually.

In the Fall, we start with a 2 day a week program on Monday and Thursday to ease into the process of separation. Understanding Separation is so important and when Hellos & Goodbyes are practiced consistently they become reliable and provide a stable foundation to build upon.  Depending on our energy and progress we will discuss adding Tuesday in November or waiting until the New Year. 

 

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 to 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 storytellers they all become or Jack n Jills or Little Ms Muffits!

 

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 your child's curiosity to look up! To become curious about what lives on Earth and what might live 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! 10..9..8...7...blast off!

Come Summertime, Playschool transitions into Beecamp and continues to grow your child by expanding the student body with other local preschoolers for more socialization opportunities and staffing 4-5 teachers to oversee the activities and play. BeeCamp also bridges into a 5 day a week routine. So by the time September rolls around your child will be ready for Preschool and so confident and secure.

 

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.
