Our top-quality Early Learning centre keeps your children safe and smiling all day, every day. We provide exciting opportunities and challenges for them to play and develop and we nurture individuality, helping each child to move at their own pace, in their own way. When it comes to working with Families, we consider you are a part of our team; it’s by working with you and staying closely in touch that we make our Early Learning Services somewhere every child will thrive. Now, let’s show you how we do it.

A child’s early years are critical, nobody knows that better than us and nobody does more to make them count, giving them a head start as they prepare for school. Whatever your child needs, whether that’s year-round care or part-time support, Busy Bees can help.

Service Manager

Hello, my name is Samantha Holloway and I am the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Mermaid Waters.

My childcare journey began in 2018 when I joined the foundation team of our beautiful Mermaid Waters centre. Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of working throughout various roles within the centre, caring for our future leaders — your babies.

It is my strong belief that children learn best when they have a supportive, nurturing, and caring environment, where they feel secure to explore and lead their own learning. I love slowing down and taking the time to create beautiful, meaningful rituals that show children they are worthy and loved. This is the type of environment that we at Busy Bees at Mermaid Waters strive to provide each and every day for your little rays of sunshine.

I love providing an inclusive, welcoming environment to support all who enter our Mermaid Waters facility. I can’t wait to meet you and your little one soon, and welcome you into our Busy Bees at Mermaid Waters family!

Fantastic day care! It's run so well, it's so clean and it's so modern. I did the initial walk through with so many centres and knew straight away this was where I wanted to send my kids.
