Mel

I commenced my career in Early Education in 2003, studying a Certificate III in Children’s Services at TAFE. From there my passion in children’s development and quality education has grown and led me through a variety of roles from Assistant Educator to Room Leader, then to 2IC and now Centre Manager. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and enjoy ongoing professional development to continue gaining knowledge and skills to be able to provide exceptional care for children.

I am a passionate advocate for providing a play-based learning environment. I believe this type of learning engages children in a meaningful way to be able to foster, discover and extend their curious and creative minds by exploring their imagination in the natural world providing the best start in life.

Our team strives to provide an environment where the whole family feels like they belong and are valued. Building positive relationships and open communication is the core of our centre with each tea member supported in their own unique strengths and experience to bring sparkle to our centre.

We welcome you to join our centre and be a part of our Buggles community.

Frequently Asked Questions

A centre tour is a convenient way to experience the centre of your choice and meet with our qualified educators at a time suitable to your family schedule. Buggles also offers the virtual tour option in all our centres. Click here to book a tour online.

On the day of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe practices and interactions within the centre environment. You’ll be able to see all the rooms and playgrounds, ask the team members any questions you have in mind, and get all the information you need to make the best decision for your child.

Buggles’ Family Support team will add your child’s name to our waitlist if one of our centres is currently full in your child’s age group. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available.

We also do monthly check-ins to review the availability, and you will receive a text message confirming if you’re still happy to remain on the waitlist each month. If you would like to get an update at any point, you’re welcome to reach out on our Web Chat or give us a call. 

Our Family Support team can also help you find more G8 early learning centres near you, with the same offerings at the Buggles centre you are interested in that have immediate availability.

It’s common for a child to experience separation anxiety when they first start child care. When you’re getting ready to start child care, you can help your child overcome anxieties by visiting the child care service together for a Stay and Play session, and easing into new routines at home.

Buggles uses Xplor Home as our family communication app. It is the best and easiest way to keep track of your child’s day.

After you enrol your child with the centre, you can utilise Xplor Home to book child care days, manage your account, receive the photographs that capture your child’s learning, learn about your child’s progress, as well as keep up-to-date with upcoming centre events and important information.

If your child shows signs of an infectious illness when they arrive at the centre or becomes sick during the day, you may be notified that you need to make alternative arrangements or pick up your child from the centre, and keep them home until they are no longer infectious. While we understand that this can be inconvenient, Buggles is committed to maintaining a healthy environment and reducing the risk of infection for all children.

Under the Child Care Subsidy (CCS), families are allowed 42 absence days per child, per financial year. These can be taken for any reason, including public holidays and when children are sick, without the need for families to provide documentation.
