Assistant Service Manager
Hi, my name is Lily Jankovska and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees on Ashdale.
I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care and in the last 21 years, I have had the privilege of working in various roles within the centre with many being a part of the leadership team.
I believe in continuous improvement through professional development opportunities which helps me stay up to date with the ongoing changes within the sector.
Watching children grow and reach their developmental milestones brings me extreme joy. I strongly believe that children learn best when they have a supportive, nurturing and caring environment where they feel safe and secure to explore and lead their own learning.
The team of passionate educators we have at Busy Bees on Ashdale is my biggest strength. As Service Manager, I strive to continuously grow, challenge and connect with each and every member of the team. Together we make sure that the needs of every educator in our Service are met which in return helps us provide inclusive and welcoming environments to all children.
My philosophy aligns with Busy Bees Early Learning’s core values and vision: to give each child the best start in life.
I look forward to meeting your little family and welcoming you to our Hive.
Assistant Service Manager
Hello, I am Annelise Frisina and I am the 2IC at Busy Bees on Ashdale located in Darch. I have been an Early Childhood Educator for seven years and hold my Diploma. As a long-term Educator at Busy Bees on Ashdale, I pride myself on continuing to nurture relationships with children, families, educators and the community.
I believe the first five years of a child’s life are the most important, and what they learn and achieve in these years will give them the best start in life. This is why I am so passionate about creating a space where they feel safe, secure and supported.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family creating amazing memories.
I look forward to meeting you and your family!
After only a month, my daughter loves going there and enjoys the time and activities they have on a daily basis. She connected well with her educators and she is developing good habits and responsibilities. The management team is amazing as well, they are genuinely interested in your child’s development and education, and are also open for the feedback. LOVE IT, thank you all so much.
They pay such attention to detail with each individual child. I feel like he has grown and learnt so much; more than what myself as a full-time working mum can give. My son has learnt all the things he needs for a great start in life, he is smart and empathetic. The ladies there are so caring and nurturing. I couldn't ask for better women and men to take care of my beautiful boy. I will be forever grateful to them all.
They work really hard to make your child comfortable and feel at home. They acknowledge and appreciate each child's individuality! I just love Busy Bees and we intend to be part of the Hive for a very long time!
I can see that she feels comfortable and safe. This brings me so much peace of mind. When I return to pick her up she toddles over in excitement for a big hug and then happily continues hanging out with her friends and Educators for a few minutes more. My daughter is so happy in the Baby's room and this makes me happy. Thank you to all of the educators in the baby's room!
