We were first introduced to Beehive while we were looking for homes in the area. We chose Beehive because every child is cared for in the way they specifically need. This intentional care culture has created a community that is accepting and responsible. Beehive has impacted our son’s independence. We have seen his independence grow in just a few weeks! Beehive is a carefully and thoughtfully designed school which is supported by teachers AND parents that truly care about education and growth. We are thankful for Beehive’s acceptance and being included in our child’s growth and education. We like that Beehive offers a secular option for a preschool that is open to all beliefs. Beehive in three words would be: Creative, Kind, Caring.
My son and I came upon Beehive during our afternoon walks when he was just a baby. We saw the bright yellow buildings attached to the West U Elementary playground and could feel that it was something special. By the time he was ready to attend preschool, the pandemic was in full swing and the Beehive had moved to its new home. As excited as I was to explore this new opportunity for him, I was also nervous about sending my little boy to something that felt so grown-up. Once I talked to the teachers and administrators, however, my fears were quickly assuaged and I was so excited to have him join this thriving community. After our visit, Grayson was also thrilled at the idea of going to school. All summer long he asked when he could go back and play at the Beehive.
His first week was tough for all of us, as changes often are. But the teachers and staff were so warm and friendly that they made the transition smooth. I appreciate Beehive because it is play-based. As a psychologist specializing in child development, I know that playing is exactly what kids need at this age. And Grayson has so much fun every day! He loves playing soccer, making art, running around, and just hanging with his friends. Everyday is a new adventure and Beehive makes sure that the whole family is in on the fun! I am thankful for Beehive because in just over a month, I have seen my son become more independent and happier. He looks forward to packing his lunch and getting ready for his day. He talks about his teachers and his friends. Beehive provides exactly the stimulation that a child's developing mind needs and we are so happy to be a part of the Beehive family!
Our family loves Beehive Co-op! We found Beehive through the recommendation of several neighbors and could not be happier with our choice to attend. The play-based Beehive environment is exactly what young minds need to develop, and the best part is that parents get to experience and participate in their child's development as well. These early years are so fleeting, it’s priceless to attend Beehive with my son and watch him learn and play, and the co-op model allows me to grow as a parent right along side him. We also love the co-op model because we get to know all of the parents and kids so well, which truly makes us feel we are a valuable part of such an important community. The staff is incredible. The teachers are wonderful and clearly love what they do, which enables them to bring out the best in the children. They are always coming up with fun, enriching projects that help inspire problem solving and creativity in the kids. Watching the staff interact with the children has also taught me wonderful tools to use at home for which I am thankful. I cannot say enough about how much we love Beehive. It is the best, most fun, gentle, loving environment I can imagine for our little ones. We have all the confidence that our older son will transition to elementary school successfully, and can't wait to start this journey again with our younger daughter.
