Hi there! My name is Julie and I have been the Service Manager at Springbank Rise by Busy Bees since June 2018. I have more than 18 years’ experience in the child care sector, 9 of those as a Centre Manager. I hold diplomas in early childhood, business leadership and management, and recently have resumed study towards my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood.
I am committed to staying abreast of the latest research and developments in the care and education of children, and to mentoring my team of wonderful Educators here at Springbank Rise.
The interests, needs and strengths of the children are central to our philosophy. By working with parents and keeping clear and open lines of communication, we are able to provide children with the highest quality Early Learning experiences and opportunities.
I am privileged to lead a team of experienced, highly qualified Educators who all have a commitment to ensuring all children have access to education and care, whatever their ability or circumstance.
It would be my pleasure to welcome you to our Service, to show you around, and explore the opportunities available your child so they can achieve their best start in life.
