Michael Spencer and Nickie Bartlett (Wollongbar NSW)"Our daughter has been attending Bumblebee for the past 2 years and we have always been impressed by the level of care that the centre has provided. The staff members are professional and approachable and the environment promotes learning and social development in each child. Our daughter has food allergies and anaphylaxis and her additional needs have been catered for in a sensitive and caring way. We would thoroughly recommend the centre to any parents looking for day care for their child. Michael Spencer and Nickie Bartlett Wollongbar NSW. "
Alison Graham (Southern Cross University Lismore)"Bumblebee has become a part of our family having two children attend the centre full time. The purpose built facility is excellent with a huge yard for active children like mine. Our kids love the staff and the ever-changing interactive programs that are run at the centre. I have been very impressed with the school preparation program run in the Preschool room for both my child and for me as parent of a child going to primary school. We are extremely happy with the care given to our children, suggestions provided to assist us with handling stages of our children’s development and the flexibility of the staff to cater for our family’s individual needs. Our family could not be happier with our choice of child care facility and we highly recommend Bumblebee. Alison Graham Manager/Administrator Southern Cross University Lismore "
Yen Lin Ho (Southern Cross University, Lismore NSW)"Overall, my children’s experiences at Bumblebee have been really positive. The child carers at Bumblebee are qualified and more importantly they foster a caring environment so that your child is happy and well-rounded! They listen to your child’s needs and provide a kind and educational atmosphere for your child to learn and grow. They welcome any suggestions, insights, concerns you may have so that your child’s time at Bumblebee can be the best that it can be. Both of my children have attended Bumblebee – my youngest child is there now and she started at Bumblebee at 6 months old as I had to get back to work! She is now 2.5 years and really enjoys her time at Bumblebee. During her early days there, I must have called Bumblebee three times a day to hear news! Every concern I had was dealt with really professionally and with sincere care! I have full trust and confidence in the capabilities of the women at Bumblebee; they are doing a fantastic job looking after our kids!! Yen Lin Ho Finance Officer.

Stacey Knight (Kadina High School - Goonellabah NSW 2480)"I currently have three children attending Bumblebee Early Education Centre and my experiences at the centre have always been positive. My eldest daughter started at Bumblebee when she was 18 months old. I remember the welcoming conversation I had with Kerrilyn on the very first enrolment phone call and meeting her on our first visit to get to know the place. I could see straight away that Kerrilyn was an active, hands-on person who knew every child in the centre and they all knew and loved her. From day one, all the staff were friendly and supportive and helped our daughter to settle in smoothly. Our second daughter was born about a year later and started at Bumblebee as a six month old in the baby’s room. Kerrilyn and all the staff at Bumblebee always ensured that our girls were able to have time together throughout the day to support each other and ‘be sisters’, while balancing time for each of the girls to be with their own age groups. The third child that we have at Bumblebee is our niece who came to live with us almost a year ago through foster care. I cannot speak highly enough about the support that has been given to us over the past year by Kerrilyn and all the staff at Bumblebee in settling our new little girl into the centre and supporting her throughout a very difficult time. Kerrilyn has been compassionate and understanding, informative, highly professional, and demonstrated more than once that she is willing to stand strong when it comes to protecting the rights of a child. All of my girls LOVE Bumblebee! They love to pop into Kerrilyn’s office and say hello or goodbye, and as we drive out of the car park in the afternoon, they can often be heard screaming ‘GOODBYE BUMBLEBEE’ at the top of their lungs out of the car window. I think I can only sign off from this by saying a massive thank you to you, Kerrilyn and to all the staff. We love your work! "
()"Dianne Spearing and Brett Anderson (Wollongbar NSW) Both our children have attended Bumblebee for a number of years with our daughter about to graduate and move onto primary school in 2015. We have always found the staff to be caring and more than willing to assist us, and work with us through some of our children’s more trying developmental stages and behaviours. Always having the children’s well being at heart. We have seen the preschool program evolve into an interactive educational program and we are pleased with the educators knowledge, experience and their ability to engage the children and make learning fun. Having meals prepared for the children by the onsite chef, has also been a benefit. not only freeing up our time, but encouraging our fussy eater to eat a variety of foods. We have no hesitations in recommending Bumblebee to anyone looking for a fantastic long day care / educational centre. Dianne Spearing and Brett Anderson Wollongbar "

I love getting the little presents that are made knowing that my girl is able to use her creativity in a fun way. The staff are always friendly and take a keen interest in my child’s interests. I know no matter what that my girl will having a fun filled day with love and laughter. Abbie Casson Goonellabah NSW. "
