Who are we?
It all started in 2014 with a vision to create an inclusive space for growing families, and within a few months (and tons of help from family and friends) my small business was born.
I opened Lively Hive, formally known as "TUTTO", in the Spring of 2015 with a few support groups, classes, and a boutique. As time went on the focus of our studio shifted away from a boutique and more towards bringing people together. Now we have 10 classes a week for littles ages 0-6; we also host special events for kids and families throughout the year. Every weekend multiple parties and baby showers are celebrated. We are thrilled that as of 2023 we offer offsite play rentals.
A big reason why I decided to open a business was to provide our community with something we didn't already have, a place to connect. During the time of brainstorming I was practicing as a student midwife/birth doula in Central PA. I was surrounded by families who relied on their community and I wanted those relationships to grow.
Our name, Lively Hive, represents a place where many people can come together, connect, and make memories. It is always our goal to make your event, class, and experience working with us the best that it can bee.
In the past we have relied on family and friends to help out when it comes to covering classes, opening or closing for parties, decorating with us, or just helping execute new ideas. We are so grateful for our village and the support we have received over the years.
In 2023 we hired our first employee, Cat. She is a full time stay-at-home mom to two, part time health coach, and now our our manager and, let's be honest, my day-to-day task manager. Our business has grown so much with her support and we are excited to have our team expand with people who care about The Hive as much as we do!
When visiting our location you might also meet some of our other part-time employees: Callie and Kortney, both who have many years experience with customer service and kids! We also have some great instructors: Mr. Ian, Miss Molly (who has been working with us since 2018), Miss Lauren, and Miss Jamie. Also, don't be surprised if you get to meet my siblings, Liam, Beckett, or Harper - they love being part of the family business.
