Beehive's Reggio Emilia-inspired play-based philosophy has been refined and aligned to HISD, based on a review of the Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines, Kindergarten TEKS, the HISD Pre-K curricula, West U Elementary Kindergarten Readiness requirements, West U Elementary Kindergarten curriculum, and the top Pre-K curricula on the market.
Our teachers incorporate two research-backed curricula into the play-based learning environment: Get Set for School from Learning Without Tears and Blueprint for Early Literacy Pre-K curriculum supplement from Children’s Literacy Initiative.
Our younger learners begin their education journey by learning the basic foundations of reading, writing, and numbers though song and play. In the classroom they have the opportunity to develop their social skills as they transition from parallel play to actively engaging with peers.

Camp Beehive is a fun summer program led by our teachers for children ages 3-6 years (exceptions may be made for siblings). Choose one week or join us for the entire month! Camps run the first 4 weeks of June, check out the Camp Beehive link for more details.
A parent of each Beehive child volunteers in the classroom once or twice per month on a regular schedule. Parent volunteer days allow parents direct access to their child's education, the teachers, and other parents. Parents assist the teachers throughout the day with a variety of assigned tasks, and have the opportunity to actively engage with their child and other students during learning activities and unstructured play.
Learning centers support our established research-backed curricula with new activities introduced each week. Everyday, Beehivers are exposed to processed-based art, play-doh, sensory bins, pretend center, science, building blocks, book tables, and outdoor play.
Please contact us for more information and to schedule a visit. Private prospective parent tours available upon request.
