  • Honey bees are an important insect that are familiar to almost everyone. As part of our Beekeeper’s club, your child will become “Hive Minded” as we learn all about bees – what are the different types of bees in a hive, what do they need to survive, and how they communicate and work together to ensure the hive’s safety and success. Bees are great teachers. We will take time each time we gather to see what life lessons we can take away from these amazing creatures!
  • Program will open in the spring of 2024.

Please note that across all Lighthouse  programming, spots are reserved first for children who live inside the Lighthouse neighborhood (within 10 blocks of the Lighthouse). If spots remain open or unfilled, the Lighthouse will open spots up to to students and families who live outside of that 10-block radius. A more complete explanation of how this works will be emailed to you once your child is registered.
