Sharon Brooks

Service Manager

Hello, my name is Sharon Brooks and I am the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Mitchelton. I have been very fortunate to work in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector now for 14 years.

I started my working career in an office environment and worked in finance for 20 years. I recognised that I had a desire to work with children and when I had my own child, this highlighted it further. This developed into a successful family day care business that I owned in England for ten years, until I left for Australia. I was very proud when I was rated ‘Outstanding’ by the UK licencing body, OFSTED.

My mission as a Service Manager is to support and provide the best early learning environment where all children can thrive, and to forge warm and nurturing relationships with children and their families. I also believe that professional development supports continuous improvement for Educators, children and families alike.

I advocate for children to learn through play, in an environment which they can feel safe and secure. We’re all far more interested in things if we’re having fun, after all! I love helping children to investigate their environment and explore their boundaries. Under my care, I believe children are encouraged to believe that “they can.”

I look forward to meeting you and your family.
