Busy Bees at Kensington welcomes you with spacious open-plan rooms, a unique interactive children’s kitchen and dining space, and exciting outdoor environments tailored for each age group — with sandpits, teepees, bike tracks, cubby houses, vegetable garden, and natural role-play areas — where children are encouraged to ignite their sense of curiosity and discovery.
At Busy Bees at Kensington, your child will benefit from:
Our program is built upon personalised interests of the children, development, family and community input and learning observations. Each child is supported to participate in the daily programs to discover, experiment, collaborate, explore, take on projects and experiences, analyse their prior experiences to support and create new knowledge. Our program offers choice as well as a balanced structure of indoor and outdoor learning experiences.
We are proud to be a culturally inclusive day care where diversity is valued and the cultural practices of families are supported, including a barefoot nursery environment. We focus on teaching sustainability and respect for the environment through our worm farm, recycling station, and vegetable garden. The children can interact and care for the needs of our pet rabbit, Norman, as he freely roams throughout the day and can visit children’s homes each weekend. Our community partnership with the Nappy Collective supports families in crisis by collecting donations of new and leftover nappies that little ones have grown out of.
We would love to have you join our Busy Bees family at Kensington. We look forward to meeting your family! Book your tour today.
The educators are all very supportive and provide personalised care in all aspects including learning opportunities, development skills, skin care, diet and toilet training. We feel the educators are doing a great job, going over and beyond what is expected of them.
What stands out the most is having my son's nappy changed regularly, they aren’t starving at the end of the day (they have a chef onsite too), their faces are clean, they take the time to spend with your child, they don’t just put up story’s on Storypark rushed — they take their time to include all children in the story and photos. The premises is spacious, clean and supportive to the children's needs. Best day care centre.
I have received so many unique experiences and memories while working with the company.
I am extremely grateful for the wonderful families and community that surrounds the service and supports us on a daily basis. Furthermore, the leadership and Educators make my job a fulfilling one and always go the extra mile to help one another. I am very lucky to be working with Busy Bees over my extended experience within the industry, this has truly been the greatest job and career I have chosen.
We choose to use cloth nappies, and this wasn't a problem for the service or the staff... The staff take the time to build special bonds with each child, and get to know them really well. They are quick to communicate any issues or updates via the Storypark app and always share a photo update in the afternoon of the days activities. I am confident and assured each time I drop her off, that she is in the best hands and is at a centre that really cares about her as an individual, and not just as a number. Thank you for making her time at day care so enjoyable and safe.
They have learnt so much and are developing so many new skills all thanks to the wonderful educators at Busy Bee at Kensington. As a parent I feel at ease knowing that I am leaving my children with such wonderful, kind, loving and passionate educators. My girls are excelling at all their milestones because of how much effort and care the educators put in nurturing their young minds. There’s never a car ride back home without a recap of activities they did throughout the day.
It makes me feel at heart dropping my twin boys off each morning knowing they are in a safe place were they feel happy to be. The centre is well presented with big outdoor areas for children to engage. The children are involved in interesting, interactive and educative activities daily. I love getting updates from educators with photos and stories about my children’s day and activities they have been involved in.
