Service Manager

Tim Cantrill

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Tim Cantrill and I’m the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Crace. I have worked in the Early Education and Care industry for over 15 years. I have gained vast experience in the industry as an Educator, Educational Leader, Assistant Director, Director and Operations Manager. Now, I am excited to be stepping into the role of Service Manager at Busy Bees at Crace.

I believe the first five years of a child’s education are vitally important. When I became a father in 2015, I began to look at the role of the Educator in a new light and believe this has better equipped me to bring important insight to his role as Service Manager.

I am a big advocate for outdoor education, and believe that children can learn from all aspects of their environments and in everything that they do. I am also a strong believer that each child’s voice is important and that Educators can learn and listen to their needs to better address the issues which are relevant to their ongoing development.

I look forward to meeting you and your family.
