Conveniently located within the Cranbourne Home Shopping Complex, just off of S Gippsland Highway you will find Busy Bees at Cranbourne easy to access and close to the Lawson Poole Reserve and the Thompson Parkway shopping centre.

Our purpose-built facilities are filled with educational play spaces and Educators that are dedicated to encouraging your children to grow.

Our qualified and friendly Educators place the highest priority on creating positive, supportive and respectful relationships with children as we nurture them through their critical first 5 years. 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.

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 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 12 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 5 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!
