Assistant Service Manager
Hello, my name is Jemma and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees on Bletchley.
I have a Diploma in Children’s Services and I have been in the Early Childhood and Care industry for over 10 years. I have previously been a Team Leader and more recently worked as the Assistant Manager before stepping up to Service Manager.
I enjoy working in the Early Childhood and Care sector and getting to see children everyday learning and growing first hand as they flourish, and also the children teaching and sharing their knowledge with me.
At Busy Bees on Bletchley we aim to provide a supportive, welcoming and inclusive environment that feels like a home away from home for our children and families.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and scooting around the river, or cooking and baking for my family and friends.
Assistant Service Manager
Hello, my name is Courtney and I am the Assistant Service Manager at Busy Bees on Bletchley.
I have been in the childcare industry for 14 years, I have my diploma in children services and have worked with ages 0 to 12 years.
I have always loved teaching and being around children, as I have a few nieces and nephews. My favourite thing about this industry is providing the children with the opportunity to learn and discover, when they accomplished something for the very first time it’s an amazing feeling watching their faces and the joy and accomplishment they display.
Busy Bees on Bletchley is a lovely warm and family-friendly place. We have a great team here that makes me feel valued and heard. The children are always put first—their happiness and learning are the priority—and we making both families and children feel welcomed at all times.
In my spare time I love to read, go to the movies and go out for dinner with friends.
The centre has always had exception quality staff, who not only care and take their jobs seriously, but love the kids and genuinely take an interest in them.
The rooms are big and spacious, with dedicated play areas per age group. The play equipment is always good quality and replaced when it gets tired. The kitchen facilities and meals provided are better than I do at home. It's a large centre, but with personal touches and we love it. Enough corporate policy to feel safe and controlled, but still warm and relaxed in the right areas.
My daughter has excelled academically due to her structured learning program.
As a clingy child I know she can be a handful, but the teams persistence has made us feel confident in leaving her in their care. Thank you to all the staff.
All of the staff are amazing and I love that my daughter has healthy lunches and snacks to enjoy each day. The team really are wonderful.
The centre is very clean, provides different learning environments for children and has a great emphasis on nature and the outdoor environment, which our kids love. Thanks to all the staff at Bletchley.
Very impressed with the friendly staff who greet you and fuss your child on arrival and upon pick up greet you to advise how your child went through the day.
Photos are displayed with diary updates from the day so you can see your child having fun, keeping busy and interacting well with others. I have dropped in during nap time to be absolutely amazed at how the staff have the toddlers fast asleep napping.
Food is awesome as the chef is fantastic. I also love that some of the staff are the same from when my first child attended. Staff are well spoken, groomed, presented and just wonderful with the kids. It's a great centre with very good communication. Thanks Bletchley team, keep up the great work.
