Chauntelle Keane

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Chauntelle and I am the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Narre Warren.

I have been working in the early childhood sector for more than 15 years. As a dedicated Service Manager, I strive to provide and coordinate the necessary support, resources, supervision, and leadership to ensure the provision of nurturing care and education to young children. I inspire to provide children, families, and educators with warm, nurturing environments for optimal development. I’m driven to coordinate activities focused on skill-building, social development, and positive interactions.

I’m a wife and mother of three beautiful children. When I’m not working, I enjoy going to the park and sharing a picnic lunch with my family. I enjoy cooking new recipes, singing songs, and being creative with DIY projects around the house.

I aim to share my passion for early childhood; get to know the children, families, and Educators well; and work in collaboration to provide the best environment possible.

Assistant Service Manager

Hello, my name is Melanie and I am the Assistant Service Manager at Busy Bees at Narre Warren. I have been working in the Childcare sector for 6 years and hold a diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.

I have always had a strong passion for working with children, as there is always something new to learn. I love watching children grow and learn, and to observe how they overcome different challenges. I’m very hands on and enjoy setting up experiences that children can engage with based on their individual interests and skills that they are building on. Not only does the early learning industry enable me to positively impact the early learning journeys of children, the children show me new ways of learning to build on my personal development and attitudes as an Educator and person. As I help them, they help me.

In my spare time I like to cook, go travelling and listen to music.
