Service Manager

Helena Thorpe

My name is Helena Thorpe and I'm the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Beenleigh. I believe that children thrive in care when they are given the freedom and support to develop at their own pace, in their own way. As a Service Manager, it is my goal to make a valuable contribution in supporting our Educators and Families to give all children their very best start in life.

My professional background includes over 20 years in business, working in the Community Health and Early Childhood Education sectors. I believe in building positive and strong connections with the local community to provide a rich and nurturing learning environment for children.

My leadership style supports identifying the strengths of each individual, and developing teams to support Educators in reaching their full potential. As a leader, it is my job to ensure that all Educators feel valued and supported, so they can continue to create learning environments that form the foundation for trusted care and are highly valued by Families in our community.

I have four beautiful children of my own who are growing quickly entering high school and university.
