Busy Bees at Balcatta provides exceptional care for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years. A favourite with the children, our Service has a pet bunny called Gus, teaching them about care, empathy and responsibility. One of the core focuses of our Service is school readiness, and we’re closely aligned with our neighbouring West Balcatta Primary School to offer programs that enable a smooth school transition for all children in our care.

We believe children are infinitely competent, active and come equipped to guide their own development and learning, striving to integrate their physical, cognitive, social, emotional, moral and spiritual aspects of being.

Our team of passionate and experienced Educators have been involved with the Service for many years, which demonstrates their love and commitment to the children, our Families and the Balcatta community. The team have an excellent relationship with the neighbouring West Balcatta Primary School, keeping across developments in Kindy and Pre-Primary Education as part of our school readiness program.

Busy Bees at Balcatta encompasses an innovative approach which is based on the discovery and exploration of respectful relationships with children.  We follow this philosophy and offer children uninterrupted time for play, plenty of freedom, a calm and relaxed environment, cooperative relationships, and our full attention.

Our learning program is inspired by Montessori teachings and philosophies, and our curriculum draws upon the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) whilst maintaining an awareness of the Australian Curriculum. Children are given opportunities to test their ideas, themselves, their relationships and materials. We believe that play fosters imagination and flexibility of mind, promoting children’s ability to be open and independent learners now and in the future. We promise our dedicated learning program is jam-packed with unique and stimulating activities you won’t find anywhere else!

Quality Early Learning does more than just prepare children to become eager school students — it builds resilience, vital social skills and independence.

  • Quality Early Learning for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years

Sunitha Maharaj

Service Manager

Hello, my name is Sunitha and I am the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Balcatta.

I am an International Montessori Teacher and I have a background in the performing arts. But most importantly, I am a “mumsy” and a “wifey” roles that I utterly adore.

As I have worked through the years in this sector, on the floor as a teacher and in several leadership roles, I have learned that one of the things that is vital for success is fostering supportive relationships.

On the flip side of my work persona, I am a bookworm, a connoisseur of a good cuppa, friend of four legged creatures and trying to master at least one yoga pose!
