Service Manager

Hi, my name is Mandy and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Warwick. I started my career in Early Childhood Education while in highschool and have continued working with children ever since.

Hi, my name is Mandy and I am the Service Manager at Busy Bees at Warwick. I started my career in Early Childhood Education while in highschool and have continued working with children ever since.

My experience over the last 22 years in a variety of different roles while working with children has all contributed to my knowledge and skill set which has prepared me for my Service Manager role here at Busy Bees at Warwick.

Over the last 12 years, I have studied and gained qualifications in Cert 3, Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services.  I have also studied a few units of a Bachelor of Law at University.  I love gaining knowledge and blending it with experience.

Community involvement is a passion of mine, I have been a member of the State Emergency Service and was historically the President of the Queensland Mounted Cadet Unit.  Quite often you will see me at local events providing face painting for the children of our community.

One of my proudest achievements is being a very proud mother of two amazing teenage children and three beautiful step daughters.  It has been an absolute pleasure raising my children, I have loved every minute, all the challenging and wonderful moments!

In my personal time, I enjoy reading, walking, family quality time and making memories to last a life time.

I look forward to meeting you and your family!

Our Philosophy

Here at Busy Bees at Warwick, we value a rich, safe, play-based learning environment that invites hands on exploration, inspires engagement, and provides opportunities to wonder and take considered risks.

We Value:

  • Opportunities for all children to develop learning dispositions such as curiosity, creativity, confidence, communication, persistence, enthusiasm, resilience and emotional intelligence
  • A responsive, intentional and flexible learning environment which fosters children’s wellbeing, learning, development, independence and sense of responsibility
  • Opportunities for children to understand Australia’s culture diversity and the importance of being inclusive and respectful to all.


We Recognise:

  • That children are active participants in their learning, with individual strengths and abilities
  • The importance of reflective practices – we are lifelong learners and engage in these provided quality-learning outcomes
  • Our environments are a third teacher and the quality of interactions between educators and children have significant impact on quality learning outcomes
  • Children need routine, time and space to form relationships and develop a sense of belonging
  • Delivering high quality childcare and exciting learning opportunities for every child, giving them a head start as they prepare for school and to give every child the best start to life.


We Will:

  • Provide an inspiring and inclusive environment where children feel safe, secure, supported to grow in confidence to explore and learn
