Busy Bees at Balcatta

Centre Details
7.00am – 6.00pm | 
Monday – Friday

Busy Bees at Balcatta provides exceptional care for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years. A favourite with the children, our Balcatta day care has a pet bunny called Gus, teaching them about care, empathy and responsibility. One of the core focuses of our Service is getting prepared for school, 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.

At Busy Bees at Balcatta your child will benefit from:

  • Quality Early Learning for children aged 8 weeks to 5 years
  • Small, family-oriented day care with a home-like environment
  • Enriching program with STEAM learning, foreign languages, excursions and incursions
  • Transition to school program, led by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher
  • Long-standing team of highly qualified Educators
  • Nutritionally balanced morning tea, afternoon tea and late snacks
  • Happy Feet Fitness program that combines dance, music and the joy of active play

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!

My little girl who is quite the handful has been going here for the past two years and has settled in so well here, which I always thought would be an issue wherever she went.

I was very anxious about leaving my son after a bad experience with a nanny, but the girls at Balcatta were so patient and loving towards him. Within two weeks he had settled so well and is learning so much every week !

It's so much more than a day care — they go above and beyond to instruct children in manners and behaviour, and encourage them to learn about the world around them, not just reading and counting.

The team are as passionate about my child's development as if he was their own. I could give no higher recommendation; when I tell my son he is going to 'school' today he's at the door saying "Hurry up Mummy!".

Great day care with amazing teachers. We enrolled our kids after not the best experience at another centre and we never looked back. We've watched our kids blossom, become more confident and independent.

The centre has provided an environment that saw my son adapt quickly to the change and is thriving every day. They are caring and compassionate, and truly want the best for our children to ensure they go into society as strong, confident contributors to our society.
