About us

Honey Bunny was founded in 2022 by an international couple from the Czech Republic and USA. Ondřej and Meleana are passionate about creating a space that is developmentally enriching while above all fostering the innate curiosity of our children. After years of experience working in schools worldwide, we incorporate all that we've learned to our approach at Honey Bunny.
