At our childcare in Craigieburn, our philosophy focuses on the discovery and exploration of respectful relationships with children. We follow child-led and play-based learning approaches, where we offer children uninterrupted time for play, plenty of freedom, a calm and relaxed environment, cooperative relationships, and our full attention. Our child-led learning programs provide exciting opportunities and challenges for children to play and develop while we nurture their individuality, helping each child to move at their own pace, in their own way.

Assistant Service Manager
Hello, my name is Alicia Conti and I am the Service Manager of Busy Bees at Craigieburn.
I have been working in the childcare sector for 12 years and have been at Busy Bees at Craigieburn since December 2018. I hold a diploma in early childhood education, and I am continuously learning and upskilling various personal developments that are related to children’s services.
I strongly believe that each child develops their own unique knowledge, culture, beliefs, learning styles and values when given the right tools to help them succeed. I thrive in building strong relationships with families, educators, and children — I love to know the children are in a safe, secure, and supported environment.
At Busy Bees at Craigieburn, we believe our care, quality, service, and value are at the highest standards. We are building on our community with connections to our local fire, police, library, and local businesses. We also love our families to come in and do an array of engaging activities with the children.
I look forward to getting to know your family.
Assistant Service Manager
Hi, my name is Ranjika and I am the Assistant Director and Educational Leader at Busy Bees at Craigieburn. I have been working in the childcare industry for the past 12 years taking different roles.
I am very passionate about working with children and have knowledge and experience working with different age groups. I believe that children need to feel safe and secure in their daily environment. I strive to have a positive and meaningful relationship with the children, so they are then able to thrive within their learning environments. As when children are thriving, they become strong, independent and confident learners.
They are obsessed with their educators! They come home in routine and happy (they sleep best on the nights after being at day care). They no longer cry when I leave them (they attended an alternative day care for 12 months before moving to Busy Bees and cried the moment we entered the car park) as they LOVE the team and are always included even if they don’t attend on the days where events or special things are happening. THANKS TEAM! You certainly have the Merjan family tick of approval!
