Beehive Learning Academy, Inc. and subsidiary Beehive Baby Academy is a State Licensed Child Care Center serving the greater Washington County area. We offer care for children ages 4 weeks to 12 years of age. Beehive offers a wide range of programs including: Montessori Preschool & Kindergarten; Before, After, and Out-of School Care; Infant Care, and Summer Camp. Beehive has adopted the Montessori approach to early childhood education. The Montessori approach focuses on key developmental stages with age appropriate activities provided that guide play, social, and cognitive development in a teacher assisted environment. With this philosophy children learn to focus on their interests and explore without pressure. Learning becomes a joy and children naturally develop social skills with their peers during the process. Children learn creativity because the focus is on the joy of the work and not the end result. Learning responsibility and self-discipline comes naturally as they return learning materials to he shelves after use and cooperative learning. Above all we strive to show genuine interest in each individual child, encouraging them to feel loved and safe in our environment.
Why choose a Child Care Center when so many other options are available? Many people don't realize that Child Care Centers are held to a higher standard than that of in-home, hourly, and other "baby-sitter" type settings. The parent who hires a teenager (or anyone) that occasionally babysits in their home needs no license, background checks, education, or safety knowledge. The Mom who runs a Day Care out of her home might leave your child unattended to answer the door or visit the restroom. In addition to local codes the Utah State Department of Health regularly inspects our facilities to ensue we are in compliance a strict set of licensing regulations. Included are requirements that our staff pass criminal background checks and maintain current CPR & First Aid Certificates. Our staff are also required to meet specific ongoing educational requirements relevant to the field of early childhood education and safety. We will always have a staff member present with your children. The old adage "You get what you pay for" is very appropriate to our industry.
