Such an awesome preschool, with amazing activities, facilities, really clean environment, healthy food, friendly lovely teachers. My son is always excited to go to Honey Bees every morning. Would recommend Honey bees to everyone.
The best day care we could hope for our son

Great atmosphere, beautiful place, healthy real food all day, full of fun and entertainment activities, but most important for us: The owner and teachers are actively interacting with the children, they know what is going on and they really take care of them.
We had a real bad experience before and we can safely say that Honeybees saved us from a major development problem with our son.
Thanks to all the staff!
