Service Manager

Hi, my name is Samantha Appel and I am the Service Manager for Busy Bees at Shepparton.

What I love about working in early childhood is that it is the most influential time in a child’s life and we get to be a positive part of this very special time. We are invited to explore the newness of the world through each child’s eyes, everyday, which is amazing.

I studied at Charles Sturt University as an Early Childhood Teacher and took my first role in a childcare centre in Wollongong in 1992. My previous role was as a Safe Care Educator. Throughout my 30-year career in early learning, I have worked in both teaching and leadership roles across community-based and private childcare services.

I have lived here in the Goulburn Valley since 2010, where I moved from the Southern Highlands in New South Wales. My husband and children moved here for an adventure, and we have grown to love this community and all it has to offer.

In my spare time, I regularly go for walks with my son and dog, and I love exploring Victoria through day trips and weekends away. I love listening to a good podcast or a novel, but my newest hobby is my indoor plants (I’m learning to keep them alive). Two of my children have left home and are working in Shepparton, so we regularly get together for meals and family game nights.
