Honeybee Preschool

Our treasure tray Project

At Honeybee Preschool we have been engaging with jewels and gems and other sparkly treasures  .Our treasure tray project is Reggio inspired and requires both family and community input. Children were invited to share things that they believed to be treasures. The treasures shared by each child were varied and beautiful and included objects such as beads. necklaces, rings, buttons,  (just to name a few). When children are given the opportunity to share things from home they feel a sense of belonging to their preschool environment.

our igloo

Our igloo was constructed as a collaborative art work, involving families and children. After gathering milk bottles, family members assisted us by drawing plans and laying out the foundations for our igloo. A full igloo was constructed but unfortunately it melted in the heat leaving an open alcove which now is a great place for a quite chat or dramatic play.

art in the great outdoors


The children of Honeybee have been working together to create a beautiful outdoor art installation. Small colourful glass beads have been threaded on thin wire and hung on a wire frame .  The beads capture the sun and the breeze and can be seen from the street.

The basic law of children's creativity is that it's value lies not in it's results , not in the product of the creation , but in the process it self
