A place for children to blossom, the Honey Tree Nursery School first opened its doors in the fall of 1980. Initially, the school occupied the main house and now it is located in the attached school facility.
The Honey Tree name derived from the Winnie the Pooh stories. Pooh's childlike desire to succeed came from an honest and unguarded effort. This same quality is what we often see in young children and it is our hope that we will foster that desire in every child that enters our school.
The Honey Tree curriculum and facility were designed to provide children with a learning environment that sparks the natural curiosity of preschool age children while nurturing a sense of security and safety. Doing so will further develop a child's natural desire to learn, have fun and develop early learning skills.
The Honey Tree works to build strong learning habits by providing a nurturing environment and understanding each child's needs and learning style. Children are not pushed to read, write or perform tasks that they are not developmentally ready to do. We create learning experiences that spark each child's interests, while allowing them to practice and develop age appropriate skills.
We abide by Jean Piaget's philosophy that "play is child's work" and strive to create an environment that allows children to develop through play and active learning. Current research tells us that play advances children's intellectual, social, emotional, physical and language development and is a natural setting for children to experiment with all senses to make new discoveries.
The Honey Tree is a place where children can be free to express themselves, engage in new experiences, make friendships, and develop a sense of belonging in a nurturing group environment. We offer opportunities for growth in social, emotional, physical and intellectual development by providing a nurturing, developmental, child friendly, environment.
