Busy Bees at Rivergums located in Baldivis offers specialised care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age, supported by 4 qualified Early Childhood Teachers and 14 Educators. The Centre focuses on Reggio Emilia and Montessori practices and has an outstanding relationship with the adjacent Rivergums Primary School, keeping up to date with developments in Kindy and Pre-Primary education as part of our school readiness program.
A core focus of our curriculum is “learning through play”. All our Educators work to inspire a lifelong love of learning and guide the children on their path of exploration, investigation and discovery. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and we are proud of the strong connections we have built with our surrounding community. It’s by working with you and staying closely in touch that we ensure that our Centre can be a place where every child can thrive.
Busy Bees at Rivergums 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.

My name is Jenni and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Rivergums.
I have been in the Early Education and Care industry since 2015 with my prior experience being based on providing opportunities for children within disability services since I was 12. This experience pushes me daily to continually learn and advocate for our children. I aim to provide environments that are inclusive to all and provide a safe space where children can grow, develop and feel nurtured while away from their families. I believe the first 5 years of a child’s life is the most crucial, paving the path for the future.
Within my role as Service Manager I am a mentor. My passion beyond providing the best environment for children, is providing a space to develop the best educators through support and training. I believe strongly in creating positive and welcoming relationships with families to support high quality care and a home away from home.
Whilst away from the service, I enjoy spending time outside with my family and animals. A weekend away camping, or hiking with my mum, is the best way to rest and reset. I am very excited to join the Busy Bees team and the amazing community within.
I look forward to meeting everyone who visits Busy Bees at Rivergums and being an active member of the Baldivis community, in which I call home.
It was not an easy transition for my little one (or mummy) but the team went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after and my little one adjusted at her own pace. They always had time to answer my annoying questions or accommodate my many changes to days and were always so patient and caring with my little one. Highly recommend!
