Busy Bees at O’Connor welcomes you with warm and inviting learning spaces that feel like home. At O’Connor, two neighbouring houses have been transformed into a fantastic Early Learning Service where children are nurtured and inspired to play, learn, discover and have fun. The spacious outdoor areas incorporate an extensive art studio with access to a wide range of recycled and natural materials, allowing the children to explore their world through art.
Jam packed with challenges for children to play and grow in an innovative and stimulating environment, Busy Bees at O’Connor is a safe place where your child’s individuality can be nurtured by dedicated Teaching Practitioners and Educators.
Busy Bees at O’Connor 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.
We’ve developed the Busy Bees learning program with the help of childcare specialists, curriculum experts and Early Years Advisors at our Centre Support Office. It’s filled with unique and stimulating activities you won’t find anywhere else!

Hello, my name is Gemma and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at O’Connor. I have been teaching children for over 10 years, both in United Kingdom and Australia in both primary school and day care settings. I am deeply passionate about children’s wellbeing, education and growth. My goal is to provide a safe and welcoming setting for children while providing an environment conducive to growing and learning.
The first five years of every child’s life is crucial for their future success. That’s why I strive to create stimulating learning environments that encourage children to discover, create and feel a sense of self-accomplishment.
As a Service Manager, my goal is to create positive relationships with all children, families and educators so that we can work together to provide high quality care. For children to thrive, they need to feel secure and comfortable in their environment, and this includes the whole family unit. I want to create a Service that is warm, welcoming and full of fun, love and laughter. A place where we can communicate and work together for your child. I wish to provide a feeling that Busy Bees at O'Connor is your home away from home!
My family consists of a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls named Úna & Fiadh - who also attend the Service. I am a music-mad person - I love listening to all types of music! There is always music playing in my house or car. I also play guitar and bass and love dancing with my girls.
Nurturing responsive relationships are our primary focus for our nursery children.
Your child's keen sense of discovery is supported through the creation of fun environments that ignite their curiosities.
Your toddler will be encouraged to explore to build resilience, vital social skills and independence in our purpose built environments.
Teaching Practitioners develop a stimulating approach to learning by supporting the children with an educational program that is challenging, insightful, consultative, giving them a head start as they prepare for school.
