Our child care centre in Narre Warren provides nurturing spaces that allow children to explore, discover and learn in a structured and unstructured environment. As learning can be different for each child, we adapt to each child’s learning style so they can grow and develop at their own pace. Our stimulating curriculum is designed to meet the diverse needs and interests of the children, offering a range of rich learning experiences that inspire and develop children to become confident and curious learners. We focus on teaching sustainability and respect for the environment through our worm farm, compost, vegetable and herb garden, and recycling program.

Our families are collaborative partners in decision-making when it comes to setting goals and experiences for the children. Our team of dedicated Educators bring so much life, energy, and kindness into our childcare centre. We’re lucky to have Educators on our team that have been at our child care in Narre Warren for twenty-two years.

Our Narre Warren 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 to make their transition to school successful. Our quality learning programs are designed to build resilience, vital social skills and independence, while preparing children with all the essentials they need to take their next big steps in school and life.

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

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 aspire 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.

Busy Bees at Narre Warren is an amazing centre, I can not speak more highly of the staff. My little one loves it here. We are so grateful for everyone here.
I have three children enrolled with Busy Bees at Narre Warren and I couldn't be happier with the high quality of care, love and support! It honestly feels like an extended family and my children are going to their second home.
