Busy Bees at Chinchilla is a fun and vibrant space where every child can thrive. Located on a quiet street with paddocks and Charley’s Creek behind us, our Chinchilla Service offers spacious outdoor play areas and even a Barnyard!

Jennifer Bell is our friendly Service Manager, with over 20 years’ experience in Early Childhood Education. Jennifer has a passion for developing strong community and family connections, having worked in many rural communities and regional towns. Jennifer is supported by a dedicated team of 24 experienced Educators, with the Service offering 75 placements for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age.

Busy Bees at Chinchilla 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.

We’ve developed the Busy Bees learning program with the help of childcare specialists, curriculum experts and Early Years Advisors at our Centre Support Office. It’s filled with unique and stimulating activities you won’t find anywhere else!

Quality early learning does more than just prepare children to become eager school students⁠—it builds resilience, vital social skills and independence.

Our funded Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor-qualified Early Childhood Teacher who is committed to getting your child ready for their next big steps in school. We work in partnership with you to make their transition to school successful. Our child-led curriculum is designed to build confident and active learners, using a holistic approach to education that combines school readiness with learning experiences that foster your child’s social and emotional development.

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Jennifer Bell and I’m the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Chinchilla. I started with the service in 2011 and have since been involved in many different roles, taking over as Service Manager over six years ago. I have 20 years of Early Childhood experience working in rural communities, regional towns, mobile services, and even studying in Reggio Emilia, Italy, before I joined the team at Chinchilla.

I believe in building strong community and family connections to create the best outcomes for our children.  As a parent of my own young children, this is one of my most important values. I believe that strong communication is at the core of providing high quality Care for children and families, and we strive to make it a core part of our Service.

The team of passionate educators we’ve created at Chinchilla is what I believe is my biggest strength. As a Service Manager, I strive to continuously grow, challenge and connect with each and every member of the team. Together, we make sure that the needs of every stakeholder within our Service are met, so we can continue to provide play, joy and positive learning outcomes.
