At Honey Tree, we strive to maintain a safe, supportive and stimulating environment that encourages exploration. We believe children learn best through play when given opportunities for observation and discovery. A balanced approach to learning allows children to have fun while developing socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Therefore, we provide a balance between free choice and structured activities, between individual and group activities, and between child and teacher directed experiences. Teachers guide and extend children’s learning by challenging their thinking and elevating the level of their problem solving skills as they interact.
All children are recognized as individuals who learn at their own pace and in their own way. We provide a place for children to feel accepted and secure with responsive, nurturing adults. Children develop a sense of trust and independence to help them grow. We believe in positive guidance techniques. By establishing clear, consistent, age appropriate limits, we help children develop a sense of confidence, social competence, and responsibility. Parents are a vital part of the positive learning experience. We encourage daily communication between parents and teachers.
