Busy Bees at Fraser Coast is located in Hervey Bay, in the leafy suburb of Torquay. Serenely surrounded by natural bushland, the Service is just around the corner (and in walking distance) from Sandy Straits State School and Urangan High School. Within this beautiful space you’ll find a rainforest, creek bed, a waterpark, bike track, fort, and endless opportunities for children to play, investigate and explore. We even have our very own Garden World, which provides the children with daily experiences gardening and composting, utilising the worm farm, and digging in the mud pit.
Inside our on-site Barnyard you’ll find our dedicated Ranger Miss Vicki, ready to teach the children all about farm animals. The Barnyard is open from 7.30am every morning allowing the children to visit, interact with and learn how to care for our goats, lamb, guinea pigs, chickens and birds.
Busy Bees at Fraser Coast offers 74 registered placements for children 6 weeks to 5 years of age, supported by our friendly Service Manager Melanie Gapes. Melanie is dedicated to providing the very best care for every child and is supported by a qualified team of 23 passionate Educators, including a fully qualified teacher that facilitates our Government approved Kindergarten program. Our on-site cook prepares nutritionally balanced meals daily to ensure our children are nourishing their bodies, as well as their minds.
Busy Bees at Fraser Coast provides a warm and nurturing environment where we nurture each child’s individuality, helping them move at their own pace, in their own way. We keep our families in the loop every step of the way, utilising Storypark as our online platform to document and share your child’s learning journey.
Busy Bees at Fraser Coast encompasses an innovative approach which is based on the discovery and exploration of respectful relationships with children. We follow this philosophy and offer children uninterrupted time for play, plenty of freedom, a calm and relaxed environment, cooperative relationships, and our full attention.
We’ve developed the Busy Bees learning program with the help of childcare specialists, curriculum experts and Early Years Advisors at our Centre Support Office. It’s filled with unique and stimulating activities you won’t find anywhere else!
We would love to have you join our Busy Bees family at Fraser Coast.
