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.

Service Manager

Cumi Odendaal

Hi, My name is Cumi and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at O’Connor. After qualifying as a teacher in South Africa, I spent 11 years in the UK, working in several Early Childhood and Primary School settings across the East End of London. This is also where I met my husband and after 11 years in the UK, we decided to return home. In South Africa, I worked in a Reggio Primary School and learnt how important it is for children to construct their own learning, express themselves and engage in meaningful experiences.

Then one day, my husband got a job offer in Perth, Australia and we have been here since 2011. I have worked in several Early Years settings and Primary Schools across WA, NSW and the NT. My most recent role was Head of Early Learning at a school in Darwin. I believe that children are a precious gift and that they hold the future in their hands, we are honored to spend our days with them, guiding them on their learning journey, becoming effective and engaged learners. But we can only do this in partnership with the families. So come on Mums and Dads, the children are our future, but you are our present. Let’s do this together!
