Learning Hive was founded in 2004 by Rheitta Ohene-Amoako. Ms. Rheitta has a burning desire to create a marriage between a home and an educational setting. Even though she had experience in the corporate world, it was not enough. Her passion for seeing children succeed socially, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally in a global arena was a driving force behind her establishing her business in the childcare industry. She took a leap of faith and opened her first childcare program in 2004. She tried to expand her program into accepting more children, but after going through the zoning process which took over three months, she was denied. Unfortunately she had to close down her center in 2008 without the ability to expand it. She was devastated but not defeated. Her dream would not die. She often looked at the classified ads for her next business location. Even though she did not have financing she knew in her heart that if she could dream it and believe it she could conceive it. In 2013 she acquired an existing center and within three years has expanded Learning Hive to 3 locations in Gwinnett county. She has taken the same concept of home and a quality education to brand her programs. The Learning Hive brand stands for excellence as she believes that whatever you do must be done whole heartedly. She now has a place where children can thrive and achieve their highest potential. She has hired quality staff in her programs to ensure that the vision continues as children continue to receive quality developmental skills in a healthy wholesome environment.
