      About

      How much simpler would life be for you as a parent if all your child’s activities could be in one place, scheduled in one block of time? And even more importantly, that this is the place where your child thrives and grows – socially, emotionally, creatively, musically and intellectually.  Welcome to Bee-School! Hive’s premium creative learning program for 3 – 6 yr olds.

      Hive’s innovative Bee-School program is unique and designed to help give your child the best quality creative arts education in an easy-access format. During Bee-School your child will enjoy playful, interactive classes in music, drama, art, dance, school readiness and Spanish where they’ll learn alongside expert teachers, musicians, actors and artists, and grow in skill and confidence.

      “Vibrant” perfectly describes the child who just loves to move, sing, dance, and explore creativity and it perfectly describes this thriving program filled with creative movement, song, dance, and colourful hands-on play based art.  Boys enjoy this program just as much as girls, and especially enjoy the playful dance and movement classes.

      Eloquent Bees | 3-5yrs

      Spanish | Fine Art | Music Movers

      3 hours | $45

      Communication, empathy and confidence are key strengths for any child to develop. In our Eloquent Bees program, your child has the opportunity to not only learn to communicate in another language, but also to broaden their minds to other cultures. 

      Children who learn a second language in their early years develop advanced communication skills because they learn to look for a wide range of communication cues like facial expression and body language rather than solely relying on words.

      Your little Bee will laugh, play, move and sing their way through learning Spanish, they’ll get their hands busy making beautiful art works, and they’ll find their singing voice as they  move, sing and play in our music class.

      Session format: 

      • Spanish 45 min
      • Snack break 15 min
      • Music Movers 45 min

      Brain Buzz | Art: Designer Bees | Music Masters

      3 hours | $45

      When you think of getting your child “school ready” most people immediately think: alphabet, workbooks and flashcards!

      The Brain Buzz class develops muscle strength, and brain-body coordination in key areas through fun games and movement activities.  The Music Masters class increases a child’s capacity to listen and remember and to recognize patterns – through joyful hands-on tuned musical instrument play using recorders, violins, piano, ukulele and xylophone.  In our Designer Bees class, kids enjoy working on a project each term where they design and make a full playset out of colourful clay to take home and play with, all whilst strengthening their fine motor control.

      Is your child Bee-School Ready?

      Bee-School is a series of learning classes with a set start time and finish time. We are not a childcare facility, and accordingly, we do need children to be “Bee-School Ready” in order to commence enrolment. 

      Toilet Training

      Children need to be fully toilet trained and able to use the toilet independently without assistance. During a Bee-School session children will be invited to use the bathroom every hour between sessions. Children can also use the bathroom at any stage during a class.

      There are various stages of toilet training, and children having the odd accident is fine.  Children who are still in the process of training - for example, needing to be lifted onto a toilet, having assistance to undress and dress, needing to go to the toilet every 20-30 minutes, are not yet ready to attend Bee-School. 

      Arriving on time: 

      Bee-School is a series of learning classes with a set start time and finish time. To avoid disruption to classes, we do ask parents to ensure they arrive on time for each session.
