As the children progress through the Centre they move from the Butterflies Room (0-2yrs) to the Bumblebee’s Room (2-3yrs). 

In the Bumblebee’s Room children are taught and encouraged to practice;

  • Correct pencil grip 
  • Cutting out using scissors 
  • Mixing colours, and predicting the resulting colour
  • Alphabet
  • Numbers

Your child will experience in more depth:

  • Their world including, the solar system and Oceans
  • The environment in which they live
  • Animals and where they live on earth
  • Lifecycles
  • Eye/hand coordination
  • Gross motor activities
  • More intense fine motor activities
  • Health and how to look after their bodies through eating and exercise
  • Independence and confidence
  • Initiating play and engaging with the adults and children at the Preschool
  • Developing friendships with their peers
  • Science experiments

During your child's year in the Bumblebee’s Room, you will notice a lot of changes in your child. Socially your child will expand their friendships with their peers, be more independent, and will develop a strong awareness of the world around them. They will play more robustly and be eager to initiate conversation with you about their world outside the home.
