At Busy Bees at The Park, we strive for all children to have an engaging learning environment where they can narragunawali (come together), wagabaliri (play), birrigai (laugh), binyin (discover) and winanggay (learn). Our programs are developed with each child’s interests and needs in mind through a play-based learning approach. We offer a well-balanced structure of indoor and outdoor learning experiences thanks to our beautiful and spacious outdoor environments, small class sizes and dedicated rooms; such as an art studio where children can unleash their creativity and self-expression with open-ended art experiences and recycled materials. Our music room offers the children a multipurpose space to explore and discover the fundamentals of music, movement and rhythm. Jam-packed with challenges for children to play and grow in an innovative and stimulating environment, our day care centre is a safe place where your child’s individuality can be nurtured as they play, learn and grow.

Conveniently located in the heart of Brindabella Business Park, our Canberra childcare centre has been an integral contributor to the Business Park community for many years. We are proud to be a culturally inclusive day care where diversity is valued and the cultural practices of families are supported. Families, staff and the local community are welcomed and encouraged to come together to enrich children’s lives and build a sense of trust, respect and belonging for all. We embed sustainable practices as we value our natural environment and the land upon which we share. The children can watch and care for the needs of our lovely fish at the centre.

We would love to have you join our family at Busy Bees at The Park. We look forward to meeting your family! Book your tour today.

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Claire and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at The Park. I began working in the Education and Care Sector in 2012 and have held several leadership positions within the Early Childhood and Out of School Hours Care sectors since as a Centre Director, Educational Leader and Early Childhood Teacher. I began my role at Busy Bees at The Park in June 2021.

I have a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary) and am currently studying a Masters in Business Administration, majoring in Marketing and Human Resources. I am passionate about leadership in the early childhood sector, providing coaching and mentoring to the team to create a positive workplace culture that focuses on quality improvement.

In the past year, I have enjoyed engaging in a role as a board member for Early Childhood Australia ACT Branch. During this time, I have networked with others in the local community to commit to improving the quality and access of early childhood education. I have also been working on an Action Research project with other professionals through the ‘From the Ground Up’ Leadership Course.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my own family and exploring our beautiful country. I enjoy outdoor activities such as 4WDing in the Brindabellas, mountain biking and hiking.

I am focused on building a strong community at Busy Bees at The Park. I aim to create an inclusive learning community for children, educators, and families. Our team is diverse, and I look forward to learning about and incorporating, a variety of cultural perspectives into our programs. I am particularly committed to Reconciliation and embedding practices within Busy Bees at The Park that honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, cultures, and perspectives.

I hope you choose to join our wonderful community at Busy Bees at The Park, and I look forward to meeting you and your family!

Assistant Service Manager

Hello, my name is Marie and I am the Assistant Service Manager at Busy Bees at The Park. I began working at Busy Bees at The Park as a Team Leader with the children in Preschool shortly after completing a Diploma of Early Childhood and Care in 2017.

I am passionate about Early Childhood Education, believing children must be provided opportunities to learn and grow into themselves. I deeply value early childhood developmental principles contained within the Early Years Learning Framework pedagogy. As such I encourage and support our dedicated team of Educators to practice these principles to the maximum standard to ensure our children, families, and communities receive the best possible opportunities to grow and develop.

Before working at Busy Bees at The Park, I spent six years working with some of Australia’s most vulnerable children. As program manager and founding member of Softacare, I was responsible for creating and delivering high-quality, creative arts events (Xpress Programs) for children and young people in foster and kinship care.

I actively encourage self-expression and look for opportunities to build this concept into the children’s learning experiences. I have been spotted dressed up and in character more than once!

I understand the importance of ongoing professional development in best practice and actively engage in continuing education myself, at the same time ensuring our education team is involved in professional development activities.

I am committed to helping build a community of people that are respectful and care for each other. I want our families to know and feel confident that they are supported, understood and valued as partners in their children’s learning and development.

When I stepped into the role of Service Administrator and Management at the beginning of this year, I made it my mission to ensure we went above and beyond to provide high-quality education to all the children and families we serve. With the support of the Busy Bees Service Manager and all our team, I am confident we will exceed our families’ expectations for quality in all areas of service.

Our baby girl started at the centre in January when she was 6.5 months old. She is happy to be dropped off every morning and is loved by the staff.
