Our O’Connor childcare in Perth is inspired by the Reggio Emilia learning approach and has created natural environments for children to explore, experiment and enjoy imaginative play. We view each child as strong, capable, resilient and unique learners with an abundance of wonder. We focus on teaching sustainability and respect for the environment through our worm farm, compost, bush tucker garden, vegetable garden, and use of recycled and natural materials in our art studio.

We are proud to have a strong reputation in the community for our friendly and dedicated Educators who make everyone feel at home. Our multicultural and bilingual team — Polish, Russian, Japanese, Mandarin, Malay, Afrikaans, Portuguese, Spanish, Farsi and Bengali — love to share their languages and cultures with the children. Children are given the opportunity to extend their learning through the Flexible Friends yoga program on Thursdays and the Happy Feet Fitness program on Tuesdays that combines dance, music and the joy of active play (optional paid extras).

Our O’Connor Kindergarten has a dedicated house set up to inspire stimulating research and exploration. Each room is set up to focus on different skill sets, such as writing, role play, and construction to support the current learning programs. Children are allowed the independence to choose the areas that spark their curiosity and how they would like to engage with learning each day.

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

Joanne Nocon

Service Manager

Hello, my name is Joanne Nocon and I’m the Service Manager of Busy Bees at O’Connor.

In my 15 years of dedicated service in childcare, I’ve learned that every child is a unique universe of potential waiting to be explored. I believe that childhood is a precious time of discovery, where the seeds of curiosity, empathy, and creativity are sown.

Through play-based learning and hands-on experiences, I encourage children to question, experiment, and make sense of the world around them. I believe that every moment is a teachable moment, and I am committed to nurturing each child’s natural curiosity and love for learning. I am excited to welcome you to our centre!

Magdalena Wojcik

Assistant Service Manager

Hi, my name is Magda and I am the Assistant Service Manager at Busy Bees at O’Connor.

I am so excited to be sharing your child’s early learning journey with you. I have worked in the Early Childhood industry for five years and hold a Diploma in Early Education and Care. During that time, I have worked in various positions including Educator, Lead Educator, OSHC Service Coordinator, and now Assistant Service Manager

My favourite part about being Assistant Director at Busy Bees at O’Connor is that I get to follow my passion for educating young children and mentoring other Educators along the way. I believe in providing a safe, welcoming, and secure environment for all families, children, and staff members. Each child should feel at home and be able to use their imagination and curiosity throughout the day.

During my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, cook, travel the world, and eat amazing food along the way.
