At Bella Bee Academy, we believe that a well-rounded education begins early in life. While we do include music and physical activities as part of our regular curriculum, we also offer several enrichment opportunities for children to explore and develop interest in music, exercise, and foreign language. While we offer these opportunities for their own sake and believe strongly in their intrinsic value, we also recognize their importance to later academic success for children.
