A little about us

Busy Bees Silverdale is a newly purpose-built, homely-style modern villa.

We are a privately-owned centre, located on the beautiful Hibiscus Coast. Our Centre is open 7.00am until 6.00pm and we are licensed for 78 children. At Adventure Kids we cater for 20 under two year old children and 58 over two year olds, split under different areas.

We pride ourselves on developing strong, solid relationships with our families and we believe communication is vital to the care and education of their child. At Busy Bees we recognise and value the environment as a 'third teacher'. Through our home like country setting, filled with natural open spaces, vegetable gardens and fantastic outdoor opportunities, we strive to provide an environment where our tamariki develop as confident, competent learners who communicate and express themselves as individuals.

At Bsy Bees, we believe that parents are their children’s first and most important teachers, and you know your children best.

Prior to your child joining us we encourage short pre-visits to assist with the settling in process. You are your child’s first and most important teacher. Parents’ know their children best and how long it will take to settle them into a new environment.


At Busy Bees we offer competitive rates, flexible hours and government funded free hours to keep childcare costs as affordable as possible for our families.

Opening Hours

The centre is open 7.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. We are open all year round including the Christmas/New Year period (closed stat days only) for your convenience.

Extra-Curricular Activities

We offer Playball and Yoga. Playball is specialised sport coaching programme for preschoolers. While our Yoga programme aims to strengthen balance, flexibility and stamina that brings a positive change in mood and attitude, increased energy levels and the ability to focus. Both programmes are held at the centre once per week for a small charge. Because it is more important for young children to learn confidence and how to play well with others, the sessions are non-competitive and designed to provide all children with the opportunity to participate at their own level and have fun! As well as with other forms of exercise, Playball and Yoga helps the tamariki to improve their physical health and general wellbeing. Children learn social skills such as cooperation, communication, listening, sharing, teamwork and sportsmanship. The sessions also promote life skills such as a having a balanced lifestyle, a positive attitude and increased self-esteem, increased confidence and motivation, focus and listening skills, fair play, independence, persistence and leadership.


To help parents, grandparents and other family members to follow the child's early learning journey we use an awesome online portal and phone app called Storypark. We capture your child's learning through videos, audio and artwork. This way you and your family are able to stay engaged in your child's development. The stories are shared only with those you approve. Although we love to use Storypark to communicate with parents as an online platform, we still use paper portfolios available for each child. We believe this is important as children thoroughly enjoy the task of finding their own portfolio and reflecting on their past activities at Busy Bees Silverdale. It's a great way for children to engage in self recognition and their own personal development.


At Busy Bees we provide healthy and nutritious home cooked meals (included in your fees) that incorporate all the food groups necessary for a healthy diet. We believe that this is essential for growing minds and bodies and helps with children's development and learning. This also means, that as a busy parent, you don’t have to prepare lunchboxes everyday, or worry too much about what you serve for dinner, as you can rest assured that after a day at Busy Bees, your children have had all their nutritional requirements. All our meals are prepared by our onsite chef, with seasonal menus designed and rotated on a 4-weekly basis.
