Tiggers, Kangas, and Eeyores
At Honey Grove, our academic goals for each one of our classes is a progressive set of developmental, age-appropriate specific skills for our teachers to use as guidelines when creating their lesson plans. Students who are enrolled in our pre-school programs participate in many hands-on learning centers that expose children to the different areas of learning. Teachers will facilitate opportunities for learning by using developmentally appropriate materials enabling our students to practice and acquire skills whether working individually, in large groups, or in teacher-directed small groups.
