Service Manager

My name is Marie, and I am the Service Manager for Springbank Rise by Busy Bees in Casey ACT. Since December 2021, I have worked alongside a dedicated team of educators and management, in partnership with our wonderful families who utilise our Service, with the joint objective of providing quality education and care to the children who attend.

My name is Marie, and I am the Service Manager for Springbank Rise by Busy Bees in Casey ACT. Since December 2021, I have worked alongside a dedicated team of educators and management, in partnership with our wonderful families who utilise our Service, with the joint objective of providing quality education and care to the children who attend.

I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector for over 18 years, and over this time frame, I have held positions/roles of Assistant Educator, Lead Educator, Kitchen Hand, Night Cleaner, Educational Leader, Assistant Director (2IC), Acting Director, and also Workplace Health and Safety Representative.

Whilst holding the Diploma qualification in Children’s Services, I am currently working towards (studying) the Bachelor of Early Childhood Degree (Birth to Five Years). It is my intent to continue in the Early Childhood Sector after the completion of these studies, as this is where my passion started and still remains.

It is truly a privilege to be entrusted to contribute to the play, learning, development and growth of our wonderful children on their educational journey within the early foundational years. This includes being involved in the lives of children, their families and educators within the Springbank Rise by Busy Bees community. For me, the core values I aim to instill in the vision and practices at Springbank Rise are: integrity, respectful relationships, creativity, all (safe) weather indoor and outdoor play, safe risky play that provides challenge and growth, children’s choice and voice (heard and actioned), sense of agency, clean and stimulating environments, emphasis on social and emotional development as a key influence on other development, including but not limited to school readiness; and ensuring that the individuality and uniqueness of children, families and educators are acknowledged, valued, and respectfully celebrated.

On a personal note, I am married and am a parent to two daughters, who as a family, love living locally in Canberra. Prior to the Covid Pandemic, we also enjoyed the experiences provided by  interstate and international travel from time to time. Outside of work, I value and cherish time with friends and family during a meal, movie, board game or conversation. Further, I enjoy being creative and expressive through the engagement of Visual Arts (i.e., draw, paint, scrapbook, and sew (well dabble at a beginners level), singing with or without music and instruments, and creating inviting environments for myself and others to enjoy. Hopefully, this is evident in my     engagement, and sphere of influence, within the Services experiences and spaces for all our Springbank stakeholders.

I invite you to come and say hello, introduce yourself and your family to us via booking in a tour of our Service on our website, where we would hope to make you feel welcome and at home. Until we meet, take care, and may you and your family remain safe, healthy, and happy.

Hope to see you soon!
