Service Manager

Shari Smith

Hi, my name is Shari Smith and I'm the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Cranbourne. I have been working in the Early Childhood Education sector for the past 10 years and hold my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). I have worked in numerous roles supporting children and families through their learning journeys, from implementing educational programs to being a qualified kindergarten teacher. I have been working at Busy Bees at Cranbourne for over 3 years and am so excited to be Service Manager!

I have a passion for creating natural learning spaces that foster learning through play and strengthening children's autonomy to allow them to become confident and active participants in their own learning.

I aim to provide a loving, caring, safe, and home-like environment that is welcoming, warm, and inclusive of all cultures, nationalities, abilities, and family situations. An environment where children, parents, families, and educators feel safe, secure, respected, and supported. Where partnerships and friendships can be formed and maintained, lines of communication are always open and valued, and a service that has commitment to providing high-quality care and education.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your family!
