A Creative Alternative to Pre-School

Do you want to give your child the opportunity to develop their natural talent in art, music and acting?  Are you finding it difficult to fit all their activities into your week?

Hive’s innovative, Bee-School program is unique and designed to help you give your child the best quality education in an easy-access format.

At Bee-School, your child will enjoy a 5 hour session filled with Music, Drama, Spanish and Art, with play and snack breaks in between.

Children are grouped into two age groups within Bee-School: 3 yr olds and 4-6 yr olds. Each group rotates through their age specific lessons and both groups get to play together at morning tea and lunch time. Our programs are developed especially for your childs age group and development and we use a play-based and movement-based approach to learning.

Your little Bees will be safe with us! Bee-School runs in a safe, happy, double-gated space with exclusive access to our Bee-School students.  Children are signed in and out of Bee-School at our Hive Office.

Our Bee-School teachers are special people with amazing talents and skills in each of these areas, as well as qualifications in early childhood education.

Enjoy some time to yourself while your child is buzzing at the Hive!
