Miss Humblebee’s Academy is fun and interactive;
includes hundreds of lessons across all subject areas
Many research studies have shown the positive effects of quality early childhood education on future academic development, educational attainment, and earnings later in life. Yet, hundreds of thousands of children in the U.S. have no access to the programs that can help them build literacy skills and prepare them for kindergarten and beyond. Now families in Glen Head, Glenwood Landing, Greenvale, Old Brookville and Roslyn Harbor have access to Gale’s Miss Humblebee's Academy, an educational program that assists libraries’ youngest learners in building foundational literacy skills.
Through the Gold Coast Public Library, parents and children can access the fun and interactive learning program. Designed for children ages 3 to 6 and employing friendly cartoon characters to guide learning activities, Miss Humblebee's Academy is an easy-to-use, interactive and award-winning online and mobile-accessible kindergarten-readiness solution. It offers hundreds of lessons spanning all major academic subjects, weekly progress reports, and is the only library-based resource that provides assessments to measure proficiency and learning outcomes.
Miss Humblebee’s Academy provides children an opportunity to learn while having fun in a safe online classroom environment with no pop-ups, ads, or links to other websites. It provides parents with tools to measure their child’s kindergarten-readiness while working at the library, at home or on the go. The program assesses cognitive skills at regular intervals for measurable improvement toward kindergarten-readiness and offers a developmental observation checklist allowing parents to review and record social and emotional growth as an additional condition of school preparedness. Weekly emails alert parents to review curriculum progress and assessment results that are available online 24/7.
Families can access Miss Humblebee’s Academy at the library, home, or on-the-go via iPads, tablets, and smartphones. A portion of the curriculum is also available offline in the form of printables and worksheets.
Parents receive several measures to provide insight into their children’s learning progress through a cognitive skills assessment, parent observation checklist and progress reports.
Gold Coast Public Library district residents can access Miss Humblebee’s Academy by visiting the library’s website’s children’s page at www.goldcoastlibrary.org/departments/childrens.
