# 1 preschool in Auckland!

If you are looking for a preschool do not think twice this is the best place to leave your child. My son started since he was 2 years old and I looked over 20 different daycare centres and when arriving to honeybees I knew this was the place for him. I was not mistaken! The teachers are amazing, the place is very nice and tidy, you don't have to worry about anything from diapers , milk , food they have everything. They organise so many activities for the kids to enjoy and develop which was very important for me. Now my son is 5 now and we will miss them greatly!

From the very first day we visited Honeybees, it never ceased to impress us. Our daughter has been going to Honeybees from more than a year now and we have seen so many positive changes in her. All the teaching staff are really great and they give so much love and attention to all the kids.It's a nice and clean environment for kids. They enjoy each others company and do heaps of activities together. Honeybees is undoubtedly the best Daycare in Auckland and our daughter is so fortunate to be a part of the Honeybees family. We highly recommend Honeybees to all the parents and it will make a difference in the life of their kids..Thanks to all the wonderful staff at Honeybees!

A great daycare

We're thrilled with how good Honeybees has been for our son. Great, friendly staff who were sensitive to our his needs when he started in a new environment. It is heartwarming to be able to drop him there (3 days a week) and know he will be happy and cared for. We don't feel like he is just lost in the crowd.
A few other things we like - central location near our work, healthy meals, a diverse group of children and staff , light, airy space, modern learning environment (occasional yoga, Te Reo). But mostly it is the people that make this place.

Teachers are very interactive with the children. Enhancing their learning and helping children to build confidence in a safe and healthy environment.
Both of my boys are currently attending Honeybees Preschool and they love every moment of it. Meals prepared by a on site chef are very nutritious and yummy even for the pickiest eaters.
Just couldn't fault it...highly recommended and that's coming from a picky parent who always for the best :)
