ENERGETIC children aren't the only busy bees at the C&K Yamanto Community Kindergarten - there are 5000 real bees there, too.

A hive of native, stingless bees is the latest addition to the kindy's sustainable garden.

Director Leigh Thompson said the children loved to watch the bees at work.

"A local beekeeper introduced the hive and the kids have fun watching the bees fly in and out and listening to them buzz in the hive," Ms Thompson said.

Ms Thompson said beekeeping added to the long list of other sustainable practices at the kindy including waste-free lunches, the keeping of free-range chickens, compost bins, a worm farm, water tanks, solar panels, and edible gardens.
