The stingless bees are native to Australia and they were put on this planet to produce pollination for agricultural purposes. Without them, our ecosystem would simply not thrive and due to their massive contribution to our planet, it is safe to say we are chuffed to have the opportunity to introduce our Stingless Bee Program to our Little Scholars and educate them on the value of bees.
The children ‘safely’ explore, engage, learn and experience close-up social interactions with the stingless bees while getting incredibly close to the bees without getting the fear of getting stung. So, fear no more parents! No one is getting stung (thankfully) but our families will get an abundance of fresh veggies and herbs from our garden, which grow abundantly with thanks to our buzzy bee friends!
The stingless bee is a great program to have as it teaches our Little Scholar to have respect for our environment by understanding how important our bees are for pollinating agriculture and native Australian wildflowers. When you come visit our campuses, keep an eye out for the sweet lil’ bees buzzing around their shady homes, which is also known as the bee stands, or you might catch them roaming around the veggie garden as that is their happy place.
Bees are our future; they are the superheroes of our planet earth. If we can teach our little scholars to respect and care for bees, which are responsible for basically every crop and plant life that exists on earth, then we are taking a BIG step in helping them build a better future. Just like the bees, our Little Scholars are the superheroes of our future.
