At ANCHORS we understand the development of a child’s understanding of morality and integrity are of equal importance to their cognitive learning. Throughout this school year Happy Bees have taken part in various activities such as: flag selling, contests, marching and etc., to help the participants improve on their social skills and self-esteem among their peer group. The Happy Bee program affords them the opportunity to work with other children and acquire problem-solving skills. This enables Happy Bees to become confident, independent, and gain better understanding of themselves and others.
