The BEE Curriculum
Our curriculum is especially designed for three- to five-year olds to foster emerging literacy, book appreciation, thinking skills, and long-term learning.
In each school year your child will be introduced to 12 excellent children’s books, each of which forms the basis of a two-week exploration of the story, math and science concepts, creative arts, and age-appropriate reading and writing skills.
Each book is also at the core of a long term child-driven project in which the whole class works together, using social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and language skills. And, at the end of each month, your child will take home their very own personal copy of the book he/ she just explored in the classroom!
As an additional tool to foster learning at home, we provide each child with an activity journal once a month. The journal is not designed to be homework, but rather an opportunity for you and your child to work together to consolidate some of the learning they have done at school.
Our teachers build a developmental portfolio for your child throughout the school year to tell his/ her learning story. The portfolio is a collection of your child's work, evidence of developmental progress, video, audio, and teacher comments about their learning and activities in the classroom. AND - you get to participate.
We use an e-portfolio program called Educa - a world-class Portfolio Program developed in New Zealand where Early Education is of the highest quality in the world.
We'll invite you to have access to your child's portfolio page, and you can view, talk to the teacher, and even upload stories, video, and audio of your child being amazing at home!
Each family can only view the portfolio of their own child through a secure log in process.
