3. Can children navigate Miss Humblebee's Academy independently or should I sit with him or her?

Our goal is to create a partnering learning environment among educators, parents, and children. However, that is not possible 100% of the time. All lessons have auditory cues to help children progress through the lessons and the site independently. This feature makes it suitable for use by both parents and children together and by children on their own under minimal supervision (depending on age and ability).

Curriculum

1. How does Miss Humblebee's Academy teach the skills for kindergarten proficiency?

Miss Humblebee's Academy helps children ages 2 to 6 learn from beginning skill level through kindergarten proficiency with hundreds of lessons. The supplemental curriculum is delivered in a choice of two ways—or a combination of both:

  • A guided step-by-step approach to learning that progresses sequentially. As children advance through the curriculum, lessons become more challenging.

Languages

1. Is Miss Humblebee's Academy available in Spanish?

The lessons and other areas in the classroom are not available in Spanish or any other language. In the U.S, it is legislatively mandated that children learn in English. Miss Humblebee's Academy adheres to several different standards. One is The Head Start Child Outcomes Framework. In this set of standards, one will find reference to the mandate. For example, in the Language Development Domain:

  1. For non-English-speaking children, progresses in listening to and understanding English.
  2. For non-English-speaking children, progresses in speaking English.

For more reference on these standards, please go to The Head Start Child Outcomes Framework.

All areas outside of the classroom, including assessment and lesson reports, and website content can be changed to Spanish (or many other) language so that if a parent's primary language is not English, then he/she can understand the product and details about the facets of the product.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, "For children ages 2 to 5 years, limit screen use to 1 hour per day of high-quality programs. Parents should co-view media with children to help them understand what they are seeing and apply it to the world around them. Media & digital devices are an integral part of our world today. The benefits of these devices, if used moderately & appropriately, can be great. But research has shown that face-to-face time with family, friends & teachers, plays a pivotal & even more important role in promoting children's learning & healthy development. Keep the face-to-face up front & don't let it get lost behind a stream of media & technology.

At Miss Humblebee’s Academy, we believe in a balance of online learning with offline learning (DIY). We also feel it is important for children to use Miss Humblebee’s Academy 2-3 times per week for up to 1 hour per use in order to establish a routine and a steady learning path.
