Our Manly daycare encompasses an innovative approach which is based on the discovery and exploration of respectful relationships with children. We follow this philosophy and offer children uninterrupted time for play, plenty of freedom, a calm and relaxed environment, cooperative relationships, and our full attention. Our quality learning programs are focused on emotional development and self-regulation to build resilience, vital social skills and independence.

Our dedicated and experienced team are known for developing lasting relationships with both the children and families in our care. They have vast knowledge in supporting special needs and promoting inclusion for all. Our Manly daycare has a dedicated focus on “from little things big things grow”, with a vegetable garden to teach children about food and where it comes from. This is supported by our sustainability initiatives with a worm farm, compost, recycling program, solar electricity, water tanks, and a partnership with Bunnings to conduct a seedlings program and bee hotel. The children are also given the opportunity to extend their learning through the Happy Feet Fitness program on Tuesdays that combines dance, music and the joy of active play; Physi Kids on Wednesdays that focusses on gross motor skills; and Twinkle Toes on Thursdays.

Our Manly West Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor-qualified Early Childhood Teacher who is committed to getting your child set for their next big steps in school. We work in partnership with you and local schools to make their transition to school successful. We offer regular visits to Wondall Heights State School and participate in their school sports day.

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

Michelle Bullivant

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Michelle and I’m the Service Manager of Busy Bees at Moreton Bay.

I have a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education, which I completed at 53-years-old to ensure I am continuously improving my skills and knowledge.

I am a parent of two adult daughters and a grandma of six children from 6 months to 10 years. I moved to Australia when my children were 5–7 years old, with my Christian faith and very little money to start a new journey of getting to know my birth land: Brisbane, Australia.
My natural desire for parenting, personal growth and to impart knowledge to the next generation drives me to be a mentor for families and children in my circle of influence.

Busy Bees at Moreton Bay provides the staff and myself the opportunity to build and implement a philosophy and practices we believe in. We believe children need the best start in life, and parents and carers require a collaborative team of educators to support them through the journey of building parenting skills. “Together we achieve more” and “How can I help?” are the foundation phases used at Busy Bees at Moreton Bay.

Outside of Busy Bees, I’m interest in seeing as much of the world as possible. I would love to take a gap year and work my way around the world with Busy Bees, and then another year working my way around Australia.

Kim Wooller

Assistant Service Manager

Hello, my name is Kim and I am the 2IC and Educational Leader of Busy Bees at Moreton Bay. I am a Diploma qualified Lead Educator within the centre and also mum to two beautiful boys.

I began my journey in childcare in 2002, through a school based placement. Working with children has always been my passion, to help each child learn and grow as individuals.

I love spending time outdoors with my family and I also get to share this passion at the centre with the children by embedding nature play learning. Here at Moreton Bay, the children get to enjoy such beautiful natural play spaces, giving the children a chance to explore.

I am also passionate about helping others grow within the centre, I love supporting my team with their own learning journeys by mentoring their ways through their own passions for the industry.

I love Busy Bees at Moreton Bay. It's such a friendly, professional and fun team/environment. My daughter loves it and has progressed so much. The staff are really down to earth and easy to talk to. Couldn't be happier!
Hope Jury
Both my children went to Busy Bees at Moreton Bay and I can't speak highly enough of the educators and the director. They are all so kind, caring and really look after the children's best interests. The kindergarten teacher could not have prepared the kids for Prep more than she did. An amazing team of people!!!
Karly Scott
My little ones love this place. I feel really secure leaving them here. The staff take great care and the Director is very welcoming and helpful. I get an update every day of their program and stories about what they have learnt. We couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.

Busy Bees is an amazing centre! It's been newly renovated, and the outside area allows a lot of exploring of gross motor skill development. The staff are friendly, supporting and caring, and you can see children getting a hug when they need it.
