Assistant Service Manager
Hi, my name is Leeann Bartley and I’m the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Maitland.
I have worked in the early education and care sector for 16 years and I have experience
across all age groups. I started my journey in early childhood education and care by
completing my Certificate III via traineeship. After working for a few years, I started studying
towards my Diploma in Children’s Services which I completed in 2017. Over the past six years,
I have been room leader and 2IC of a privately-owned service in Lake Macquarie.
I am passionate about creating supportive learning environments that foster quality
relationships between Educators and children. I value the importance of routine and
consistency for families and Educators, but most of all, our children.
I am a mother of three, I have a 13-year-old daughter and 9-year-old twins
(son and daughter).
In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality with my family and taking our giant fur baby on
adventures to the beach or on walks through the bush
Assistant Service Manager
Hi, my name is Karlie Levett and I am the Assistant Service Manager at Busy Bees at Maitland.
I have been in the childcare industry for 10 years. I am Diploma qualified and working towards my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching and Primary Teaching). I have worked within early learning services and preschools along the Northern Beaches. I recently moved to the area with my partner and we have two beautiful boys aged 1 and 2.
I have always been an enthusiastic Educator that believes all early childcare services and preschools provide the best education to the beginning of our children’s journeys. I believe that children’s beliefs are to be valued and acknowledge within their learning environments. I would like to think that children under our care are to feel supported, respected, and that their health and well-being are being met.
On my weekends, I enjoy family time with my partner and two boys. We enjoy going for walks, going to parks and camping when we can.
They’ve shared beautiful daily stories that are enriched with experiences that promotes their individual developmental milestones. The educators ask every morning how my children have been to follow routine. The educators also make sure that I am informed about what my children have done throughout their day. I also express my ideas, concerns, and goals for my children and my voice as a mum has been heard. The educators are professional, caring and honest with me. As a mum with worries for my children I expect these important factors. Thank you to the absolute incredible team at Busy Bees at Maitland.
He is always happy to go to day care now. He is well fed, regularly cleaned, clothes changed as needed and the Educators are very very good. He has learned a lot of things from the educators at Busy Bees and we highly appreciate it. I highly recommended!
