Service Manager

Hello, my name is Di and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Carrum Downs. I began my career in early childhood education at bit later in life after having my own children. I have held various roles including Lead Educator, Service Administrator and Service Manager.

As an Educator, I believe that children are capable learners and should be given every opportunity to develop their independence and self-help skills, setting them up for future success in life.

As a Service Manager, I am committed to working with the community, families, and Educators to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children.

Outside of the Service, I am a proud mother of two teenage boys and an 8 year old girl. I am a creative person and enjoy anything crafty, including 3D printing, laser cutting and vinyl cutting which give me a lot of opportunities to make so many different items and gifts.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming your family to Busy Bees at Carrum Downs.
