What our clients say about us
“All the teachers including the managers give there 100% to give the children the best education whilst making learning fun and make them feel at home. All the staff is very caring and give individual attention as needed. My kids have been recognised for several achievements and this gesture makes them feel very special and eager to improve their abilities. I am always updated with their progress and informed if more attention is needed in a specific area. What I really like about the school is the fact that children are also thought life values which helps the children recognise right from wrong. . I recommend Beesmart School to parents who want to give a great start of education to their children.”
“I highly recommend BeeSmart child care centre as thanks to the carers’ love, dedication, support, encouragement, care and assistance throughout the past years, my daughter is now prepared for the next stage in her life. BeeSmart has surely made a difference in the upbringing of my daughter and all carers left a print in our hearts.”
“I had plenty of childcare options in my area but Beesmart felt immediately as the most appropriate. I was welcomed warmly and presented with a policy that would calm any parent’s anxiety when faced with choosing their children’s second home. Great care and love is provided by all carers who get to know all the children’s strengths and quirks, giving them the best start in their social lives. Parents’ needs and preferences are also very much respected. Beesmart was a great choice and so very easy to recommend!”
“My first experience with BeeSmart was around 3 years ago when my then one-year old son started attending formal childcare. I was very happy with how the management had addressed my need to bring in my son at 06.15 in the morning as I had to be at work by 06.30. The staff did a wonderful job at keeping the young ones occupied, happy and well-cared for. “
“When I enrolled my eldest daughter at BeeSmart Summer Club I was impressed with how well organised the programme was. The following summer I also enrolled my son as beside keeping the children occupied and happy, the programmes are always highly educational. However, what I appreciate most about BeeSmart is that the management are always receptive to the needs of the parents especially when it comes to drop-down and pick-up times of children which can be negotiated even at the eleventh hour, if need be.”
“Beesmart is an experience that I am going to treasure for a lifetime! When I saw the centre for the first time, I felt a wonderful vibe of love and care. I knew that it was the centre that my son should attend whilst I’m at work. My son attended Beesmart when he was only 10 months. At the time he was suffering from separation anxiety so it was a bit hard for me to let him go however his crying for me in the morning only lasted a few days. He immediately settled with Nanna Bee. I have amazing memories that I can never forget and still wish that he attends BeeSmart. I recommend Beesmart for so many other reasons. Firstly, my son was treated as if he was one of their own, secondly I loved the ongoing communication that we had with each other and the way that we cooperated with each other when my son was having his terrible twos, the daily activities etc. At Beesmart, my son did not only learn the numbers or colours but he has also learnt a lot of knowledge and life skills.”
“Very responsible, friendly and dedicated to the children, I was very satisfied with the programme Beesmart provided for summer school. Thank you all.”
“I really recommend Bee Smart summer school. These past 2 years my son attended Bee Smart summer club and I was really really satisfied. He really enjoyed it. They do lots of fun and varied activities. The staff are all amazing. Well done to all!!”
