The name Bienennest( Bees Nest) was coined from bees. Those who have been paying attention to environmental news over the last couple of years know that bees have been disappearing at an alarming rate. The Name Bienennest Kindergarten was choosen to bring more awareness to the plight of bees all over the world and here in Berlin the kindergarten works closley with bee protection programs. We will work closely with the kids in bee conservation and protection programs to impart more awareness of the plight of the bees.
