Jennifer Kime (Jenn for short) is our friendly Service Manager and has over 10 years’ experience in the Early Childhood sector, holding a Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood Education. Jenn is supported by a team of 27 qualified Teaching Practitioners and Educators who will keep your children safe and smiling each and every day, with the Service offering 106 spaces. Conveniently located in the North Lakes Estate surrounded by a residential community, the Service was developed to ensure that children are being provided with exciting opportunities and challenges for them to play and grow in an innovative and stimulating environment where their individuality can be nurtured by dedicated educators.
Busy Bees at Cameron Park 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 Service environment is reflective of the diverse backgrounds and cultural heritage of our Families. This can be seen embedded within daily practice and the room environment such as using home languages within the room, and celebrating special events such as Diwali, NAIDOC week and thanksgiving with our Families.
The Service boasts a strong school readiness program, lead by our qualified Early Childhood Teachers who ensure children have all the skills and confidence they need to take their next big steps in school and life. Our Educators actively work in partnership with local kindergartens within the community, to help inform their practices and develop learning programs that align with leading industry best practice. Sustainability is built into our daily activities and embedded into the children’s learning. Children grow their own vegetables in our veggie garden and frequently use recycled materials in their creative arts projects.

Hello, my name is Jenn Kime and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Cameron Park. I have 10 years’ experience in the Early Childhood sector and hold a Bachelor of Teaching Early Childhood Education. I have worked in various roles before becoming Service Manager at Busy Bees at Cameron Park in 2015.
I am a mother of two very energetic boys named Walkah and Hudson. My family and I love spending time outdoors at the beach and visiting our local parks, but overall just enjoy spending time with family.
I am passionate about providing quality teaching in the first five years, as I believe it is the best possible foundation for a child’s future life and learning. It’s a time to foster and support children’s imaginations and development through a play-based curriculum.
Each child and their family bring their own story and whilst they are here at Busy Bees at Cameron Park we get to play a special part in their journey, observe their growth and provide a positive influence to the beginnings of their educational experience.
Our Service Philosophy has been created in collaboration with our educators, families and children who are a part of Busy Bees at Cameron Park.
We Believe In:
We believe in building secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with children in our care. Children respond well to the feeling of being safe, and cared for while they are enjoying an educational environment. We believe in the importance of building trusting and nurturing individual relationships with every child in our care. We see children as capable, competent, co-contributors and active participants in their own learning. We believe in advocating for the rights of children and upholding these rights.
We believe when working with families, we want them to feel assured that they are the most important part of their child’s life and education. In this we ask families to contribute to their child’s learning in the service through parent involvement and input. We understand that time can be an issue so we will always aim to make this easy for the parents and families by adapting communication styles to best suit the individual family needs.
We believe in being involved and connected with our greater community. It is important for children to develop a sense of belonging and connectedness to their community through meaningful community engagement opportunities. Engaging with the community build’s on children’s knowledge of being and becoming contributors to their world.
We believe that all children, regardless of their background or ability, should be given the chance to play and learn in a respectful, inclusive environment. We believe every child should be valued, supported and given access to equal opportunities and learning experiences.
We believe in the importance of children keeping their home languages and using them within the service, we believe every child’s culture should be reflected within the service. We believe that being culturally competent is about embracing cultural differences, our connections with others and representing this through our daily experiences and interactions with children and families.
We believe in the importance of acknowledging the original custodians of Australia and thanking Indigenous Australians for allowing us to use their land. We would like to acknowledge and pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land that we are situated upon, the Awabakal People, whose people have cared for and maintained the land, water and traditions within this area for thousands of years. We pay our respects to the elders past and present, and we acknowledge that this land is and will always be Aboriginal Land.
