Hive Philosophy


Our approach strives for all children to develop music, language, artistic, drama and creative expression skills. We do this through research-based and developmentally-appropriate holistic activities. Plenty of time and thought goes in to the why and how of what we teach, when and to what ages.

Hive Classes

The Nursery Colony

Cherish those special years when your child is just beginning to discover the colours, textures and sounds around them. The programs in our Nursery Colony are designed to nurture your little bee’s intellectual, speech and emotional development through music, sound, rhythm, colour, story-telling and language. From newly born babies to energetic toddlers, give your little one every opportunity to grow and explore during these precious formative years with you right there beside them.






Bee-School – 3-5 Year Olds

The Primary Swarm

The confidence and life skills that your little bee will discover through music, language, theatre, art, drama, movement and song are a gift that he/she will appreciate for the rest of his/her life. Our Primary Swarm programs are designed to give children aged 5 to 12 years old every opportunity to grow and thrive in an educational, relaxed and supportive environment.





The Teen Buzz

How special is it to be emerging into the teen years – it is a time of discovery, of being inspired and excited by the huge world that surrounds you, of learning about who you are and what you believe in, of becoming confident in yourself as an individual.

Our programs designed specifically for teens aged 10 to 16 years combine include Theatre, Drama, Art and Song to ignite your amazing child’s creative talents, life skills and confidence. We provide a beautiful, energetic environment that invites your child to relax and let his/her imagination run wild, building their confidence, expanding their thinking and making meaningful and long-term friendships along the way.
