Baby Oskar looks super cute in his bamboo and organic cotton bodysuit from Bam and Boo kids - he is the new little brother of one of our boys and we're very happy he has joined the Honeybees family!
Hope all our beautiful Honeybees mums have a very Happy Mothers Day this weekend!! We're expecting to hear lots of stories on Monday about dishes washed, massages given, chocolate cookies baked, this list could just go on.........
Congratulations to our beautiful teacher Katie, who was married in the weekend! What a magical day.
Every day at Honeybees when I take a moment to just quietly stand and watch our children's faces as they gather around the teachers, I can see the happiness and pride as they master each skill - patiently encouraged over and over again, to try and fail, maybe there's a different way? and finally... success. There's no greater thing to do in the world than that. Thank you to our amazing teachers.
The children were so happy when the Easter Bunny hopped in with some very special treats this afternoon........!
Honeybees had a brilliant time last week on a little trip across to Devonport, perfect sunshine and the water was nice and warm for paddling. Hope the storm approaching tonight doesn't mean the end of our amazing #kiwisummer, take care everyone!
The Honeybees Preschool Dream Team! :-)
Honeybees is growing, and we're looking for the perfect person to join our absolutely wonderful team:
We're all getting into the Christmas spirit at Honeybees Preschool!
The children are very excited about our Christmas Party tomorrow, and Santa has told us he might even pop in for a visit if they have been extra good for their mummies and daddies!! :-)
The results from our parent survey are rolling in, and we're so happy to feel the love for Honeybees!! :-)
"We just love the staff. You care so much for the children and it shows. Your food is amazing! You are FANTASTIC!!"
"Honeybees has an absolutely different environment from what I've seen so far in Auckland's childcares. It feels like home in here!"
"It seemed obvious to us from the day we visited Honeybees that the teachers are talented and committed to making early childhood education their career. This was a big difference to other daycare centres that we visited."
"I love the natural products used and I love knowing my daughter will be nourished with real food."
"I love the philosophy and cleanliness of the centre. All the staff are happy, positive people and I am grateful that my son is in their care while I am at work."
"Friendly, warm teachers who are always very very patient and always smile. Chemical and toxin free toys, skincare products and toiletries. Healthy and balanced foods."
We had all sorts of goings on here at Honeybees for Halloween last week!! There were wizards, princesses, devils, super-heros and even perfect little pumpkins...... and they were all super adorable! :-)
The children are very excited to be going on a special trip to the Zoo next week!! They have been working hard on their own zoo projects in preparation, and trying to figure out exactly where those leaves go.... :-)
We were so lucky today at Honeybees to have Cornflake the Clown from Cornflakes Magic World come to visit, and perform a magic show!! The children had so much fun, and wanted him to stay and live at Honeybees forever! :-)
This major study in the UK confirms what we believe here at Honeybees - children who attend high quality preschools go on to achieve significantly better academic results at school and even earn more during their working lives! :-)
Our Wheely Bug Bee winners popped in this week to pickup their prizes - luckily Bronte is just the right size to do lots of buzzing around, but little Zepplin has some growing to do first! :-)
Bucket on the head day at Honeybees....! :-)
A couple of the boys were very helpful in picking out our Wheely Bug Bee winners from the Baby Show competition yesterday! They took the job very seriously and made sure to pick right from the bottom of the box.......! So a big congratulations to Sarah & Dax Peter and Francesca Knox, hope your little ones enjoy buzzing around on them - we'll be in touch!! :-)
Those with preschoolers at home be warned, this is what we might have to look forward to down the track......hilarious!
Last day of the Baby Show for Honeybees and we were taking our chance to lark around on the Wheely Bug bees before we draw our lucky winners next week!! :-)
We met so many lovely parents and little ones, and we really hope to see you soon for a visit and a play at Honeybees! Don't forget if you saw us at the show and enrol in the next 2 months you'll get your first month free too!
