Service Manager

Agatha van Krieken

Service Manager

Hi, my name is Agatha (Aggie) and I am the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Newcomb. I have been working with children for the past 25 years. I have held my Diploma for 20 of those years. I have had many roles within this time ranging from a Lead Educator to management positions. I have also completed my Diploma in Community Services and volunteer with local community support services.

I believe children have unique capabilities and strive to give them appropriate tools and opportunities to achieve them. I believe my role is to guide interest and inspire children to explore, discover and learn. Children have a natural wonder and curiosity when it comes to everyday life, and their infectious zest for learning new things makes it a joy to work with them.

I moved over from Fremantle Western Australia 13 years ago and since have been living in Leopold with my husband and our pooch baby girl. I enjoy camping, travelling and live music. I enjoy gathering with friends and family in my spare time.
