Developing a Lifelong Love for Learning and Healthy Living
Early childhood experiences are critical to the emotional and intellectual development of a child’s brain. During these early years, 75% of brain growth is completed. Adults that care, support, and teach children play a significant role in building the groundwork for a lifetime of learning and forthcoming success. At The Learning Bee our teachers encourage personal, social, and cognitive development; promote language and physical development; and incorporate pre-reading and pre-writing skills into their daily lesson plans that follow a Maryland State Department of Education approved curriculum. At The Learning Bee we provide materials, toys and equipment that are not only age appropriate, interesting and challenging, but also encourage independence and self-sufficiency.
Quality Enrichment Programs-
Helping Children Develop and Fulfill their Potential
Students benefit from a dynamic, hands-on environment and a variety of enriching experiences and instruction in Art, Music, Sign Language, Spanish, Cultural Arts, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and Nature Discovery.
Let’s Move Active School-
Promoting Children’s Health & Wellness
The Learning Bee is part of the Let’s Move national initiative, promoting healthy living in children through nutrition and exercise. We nourish healthy eaters by providing a hot lunch, nutritious snacks, fresh fruits and veggies, milk and water.
Children learn best when they are active and having fun. Physical fitness and motor skill confidence are enhanced through yoga, tumbling, dance, creative movement, obstacle courses, and physical activities throughout the school day.
