Busy Bees is a beautiful, boutique, full service childcare centre.
Our purpose is to provide children and their families with the highest quality care in a happy and nurturing environment, and we have been providing this to the community for over 30 years.
Please check our Facebook page for details of recent excursions and events.
We believe children learn through play, and it is for this reason we provide programs which are play based. We provide a continuous developmental curriculum designed specifically to nurture your child’s emerging capabilities.
We tailor our program to meet the needs of individual children and their families while taking into consideration our centre’s philosophy. Our curriculum offers a healthy balance of freedom to encourage individual growth as well as structure to promote cognitive skills.
Busy Bees Childcare Centre’s curriculum is always developing and changing taking into consideration the individual developmental needs of children, the understanding that children learn in a variety of ways and that children can vary in their capabilities and pace of learning.
The curriculums are also based on The Early Years Learning Framework – Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Groups & Staffing
We have two groups of children:
- The Wallabies Kindy (3 yrs – Prep age) with a maximum group size of 20.
- The Possums (15 months – 3 years) with a maximum group size of 14.
The Wallabies Kindy group has a Kindergarten Teacher and a Group Leader or Assistant each day.
The Possums Group has a Group Leader and 2 Assistants each day.
The Kindergarten program at Busy Bees Childcare is a Queensland Government Approved Program giving families the reassurance that their child is receiving a quality early childhood education.
Using the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines as a basis for programming children will engage in a stimulating, engaging, challenging and relevant program focusing on their individual needs and abilities.
For children aged 15 months to 3 years.
Explore, Discover and Enjoy!
To provide opportunities for developing, learning and meeting our goals we implement a program which will:
- Enrich, organize and structure the children’s environment to provide choices from a wide variety of activities and resources that stimulate their senses and natural curiosity to explore and discover.
At Busy Bees Childcare Centre and Kindergarten our aim is to function as an extension of family and to provide exceptional care for children through a personalised service that builds from a safe, warm, loving and stimulating environment. This is also based on respect- respect for children, their families and carers, our community and for our educators. This respect is conveyed through every decision and action taken in regards to the running of our centre.
We recognise that each child is unique, regardless of their cultural background, gender, beliefs, attitudes and ability. All children will be treated equally and that they will grow and develop at their own pace whilst being supported and influenced by all educators involved in their care. Individual children’s efforts and skills are encouraged, recognised and appreciated and this is reflected through the centre programs.
We understand children are active participants in their own learning and that the best learning outcomes for children are more achievable if a collaborative relationship is developed between children, families, educators and the community. We do this by enhancing children’s self-esteem through interactions, developmentally appropriate experiences and relationships between children and educators that are forged from mutual trust and respect. We equip children with life skills that will enable them to experience fulfilling and rewarding participation in later life through providing opportunities to work together co-operatively and to explore human relationships.
Busy Bees is a full service child care centre and our fees include the supply of nappies, premium quality food and access to Storypark.
Weekly fees are determined by family income, number of children in the family using child care services and the amount of child care used each week.
The Family Assistance Office uses this information to allocate the family with a Child Care Benefit percentage. All families are encouraged to contact the nearest Family Assistance Office (located at Noosa Civic) on 131 650 for more information.
Families are also eligible to claim the Child Care Rebate which can reduce weekly out of pocket fees by 50%. This payment can be paid directly to the centre to reduce your weekly fees which are claimed by the family at the end of each term.
