Busy Butterflies Education and Care Service educators provide opportunities for children to really spread their wings.
Its team of family day care educators provide education and care to small groups of children, with no more than four under school aged children at one time, for a more personalised service.
Family day care ratios are low at one educator to seven children which supports children's learning with the personalised educational programs.
Busy Butterflies supports educators to extend on their own friendships and networking along with the children by expanding their friendships outside their own homes.
Busy Butterflies have service excursions choosing venues and parks where children can meet in larger groups.
Lunch is provided and the children all get to have a fun filled morning at Daisy Hill Koala Centre, Karawatha Forest and Indigiscapes to name a few.

On Fridays the service hosts an educators only playgroup allowing educator networking and opportunities for the children to engage in a larger group with a music program.
Busy Butterflies educators also have their own playgroups at each other's homes, in parks and other venues such as local libraries as well as the opportunity to share their school holiday programs.
