About Us - Our Team


Desiree and her husband Denis opened Bees Nees in February 2005. They both recognised the need for establishing a centre in the Branxton Area and, along with Denis’ building company and Desiree’s vision, a small, welcoming, homelike setting was created!

Desiree is the Approved Provider/Nominated Supervisor/Educational Leader and ensures all regulatory requirements are met, and with her years of experience in the early childhood profession, she leads the Educational program at Bees Nees. Desiree holds a university qualification, Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood).

Desiree is supported by Rachel & Tracey. Tracey is responsible for administrative duties including managing enrolments and attendances, accounts, payroll and general office.

Rachel is the centre’s 2IC. She is employed as the second early childhood teacher. Rachel also assists with planning and reporting, employment and human resources and ensuring the centre meets operational requirements.

Bees Nees provides a team of qualified, experienced and caring educators who are responsible for the development and care of your child. These educators hold either a Diploma, Certificate 3, or working towards a Certificate 3 qualification. All staff at the service have undergone a working with children check, and hold a current first aid certificate.

Our Centre values professional development, and as a result, staff and educators have opportunities to attend various training/conferences to keep up to date with current practices.

At orientation, you will be able to meet your child’s room educators. A team photo display is in our foyer, along with each person’s qualification and their personal philosophy.

We all look forward to meeting and working with your child and family.
