Wee Bees Holiday Classes

The Curriculum

The Busy Bees Pre-School curriculum is a unique combination of the extensive experience Miss Erin brings to the classroom after fourteen years of teaching in the US, UK & Hong Kong.  Having trained and taught in both traditional and Montessori settings, Miss Erin combines what she feels are the best aspects from both teaching philosophies.

Busy Bees Pre-School brings Montessori approaches to the traditional classroom.  This combination instills a natural exploration and love of learning but also prepares the young student for the demands of a traditional primary classroom.  An emphasis is placed upon developing emotional, social, physical and intellectual skills.  The classes provide a fun and safe environment encouraging children to develop their social skills and love of learning at their own pace.

Busy Bees Pre-School offers small class sizes set in some of Hong Kong’s finest recreational clubs.  “Miss Erin” Emrick started Busy Bees Pre-School after many years of teaching and managing pre-schools in Hong Kong.  Concerned with the growing class sizes, her goal was to offer something unique: small classes, a high student:teacher ratio and an energetic, fun and safe learning environment to offer children a solid foundation for their futures.

All of our classes are taught by experienced teachers, native language speakers and supervised by a teacher licensed in both primary education and Montessori education.
