What is so surprisingly special about BESA (Bilingual Environmental Science Academy) is that we are bilingual with a science emphasis and yes we are in your area! At The BESA School we believe that early childhood education is essential for optimal emotional and cognitive development. With our emphasis on bilingual education, students will not only develop complex language skills, they will also develop empathy and compassion for others. We also believe that when your children have the opportunity to go outdoors and explore the natural world around them, they experience numerous benefits.See all program details
I am passionate about child care because I feel all children should have equal access to high quality educational and care programs that will help them get a head start in life. We started The BESA School our of our home in 2017 and due to the demand for our unique program we have moved into a facility. I started the original BESA because I felt there was a serious deficiency for high quality, early education programs in my community. When I went to look for a quality, bilingual program for my own children when they were younger I had a very hard time finding one, and that is when the first ideas of BESA came to light. I love working with children because it is so rewarding to watch them grow and progress over time and be able to contribute to their learning and development .
Tania Kanapi is the executive director of the school. She has been in the childcare industry for 12 years and holds a BA in early childhood education.

She has ambitions and dreams of opening the second BESA School and will spearhead this development in the upcoming year in a location near you.
