Our Ladybug Group is comprised of mostly 3 to 4 year olds. Our Ladybugs have grown and matured since their days as Bumble Bees. Their attention spans have grown and developed as well. They enjoy sitting for a longer story or two. They enthusiastically engage in group discussions during circle time. In order to reflect their changing needs and abilities the Ladybug’s structured group time lasts longer, usually about 30 minutes at the beginning of the school year.
Our Ladybug teachers plan activities and have discussions about topics that are engaging and relevant to the children’s daily lives. Their topics range from seasonal themes to animals to gardening, and anything else that the children bring up that sparks interest. Through their explorations the children learn valuable math, science and language skills.
