Tim Cantrill

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Tim Cantrill and I’m the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Crace.

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.
