Our Killarney Heights child care in Northern Sydney follows a child-centred and play-based learning approach that encourages children to explore and investigate independently first, then we further their learning with guidance and encouragement from our dedicated Educators. We encourage children to be active participants in their own learning and incorporate each child’s abilities, interests, values, cultural identity, family traditions, home routines and languages spoken to create a welcoming home away from home.

Conveniently located in the heart of the suburb on Tramore Place, our Killarney Heights child care is easily accessible with cafes, bakeries, and Killarney Heights Public School nearby. We are proud to have 13 Bachelor qualified Early Childhood Teachers and we have been named one of the Northern Beaches Top 15 Long Daycare Centres. We strive to create dedicated areas for active games, quiet time, meals, reading and sleep. Our multicultural and bilingual Educators — Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, Persian and Hindi — love to share their cultures and languages with the children.

Our Killarney Heights Preschool offers a funded program across four classes. We have a very close-knit partnership with Killarney Heights Public School which includes excursions, incursions and collaborative partnerships to make children’s transition to school successful. Our quality learning programs are designed to build resilience, vital social skills and independence, while preparing children to take their next big steps in school and life.

We would love to have you join our Busy Bees family at Killarney Heights. We look forward to meeting your family! Book your tour today.

Ashleigh Thomas

Service Manager

Hello, my name is Ashleigh and I am the Service Manager of Busy Bees at Killarney Heights. I am lucky enough to have worked with early years and primary-aged children for the last 16 years.

I have had the pleasure of being the Service Manager of our Killarney Heights day care since we opened its doors in September 2018. One of my favourite things about working in Early Childhood Education is watching the children at our Killarney Heights childcare achieve their developmental milestones and sharing these special moments with their families.

I believe that the early years in a child’s life and their first experiences have a huge effect on their overall development, and shape who they will eventually become and grow into. It is a privilege to be a part of this journey and why I am so passionate about our industry, as are our whole team at Killarney Heights.

We have established strong and open relationships with all families who are part of our community and believe in our philosophy that we are a home away from home for the little ones in our care.

I can’t wait to meet you!

Bethany McNicol

Assistant Service Manager

Hello, my name is Beth and I am the 2IC at Busy Bees at Killarney Heights. I have been lucky enough to have worked both in Early Years Education and with primary-aged children for the last 13 years.

I became passionate about working in Early Years Learning early on when I decided that I wanted to be a part of creating a welcoming, fun, and safe space for all children and families seeking care and education, as well as making a positive impact on the lives of young children.

I have been the 2IC at Busy Bees at Killarney Heights since we opened our doors in September 2018 and feel incredibly blessed to be a part of this community. One of my favourite things about working in Early Childhood Education is forming meaningful, respectful and secure relationships with the children and families who attend Busy Bees at Killarney Heights. I work across all age groups and have enjoyed building these relationships with all the children in our care.

We have the most wonderful team and it is a joy to come to work each day. I can’t wait to welcome you into our little community.

My grandchildren have recently started at Busy Bees at Killarney Heights and have settled in so quickly. They are incredibly happy and every day they attend we receive beautiful photos and a run down of their day through their online platform Storypark.

An outstanding day care! I could not recommend it more. I have had children in from nursery to preschool and couldn't be happier with the level of care at all ages.
