About Little Bee

Kathy first opened Little Bee Howrah in July 2007, with the aim of offering a curriculum designed specifically for school readiness. Now running at full capacity, this centre is a tribute to the brilliant team of 6 staff members and all our loyal families and children.
Wayne came on board and joined the Little Bee journey in 2008 with the opening of Little Bee Airport. Kathy and Wayne were faced with the new challenge of running a much bigger; 76 placement centre. Over the years the numbers at Little Bee Airport have grown to over 165 families and over 30 dedicated staff.
