Our Story

Busy Kids Child Care!

Your number 1 family friendly center providing both Parents and their kids with resources to enhance both physical and social development .

 

Jenny and David, who moved to Broken Hill early 2010, decided to swap their city lifestyle for  the many benefits outback NSW offers. Upon moving to Broken Hill, Jenny and David faced obstacles attempting to find child care vacancies for their children.

With this in mind, Jenny and David jumped at the opportunity to launch Busy Kids Child Care to help ease the demand for quality child care in Broken Hill. With Jenny and David's many years of combined business experience, entrepreneurial flair and desire to add value to the local community, Busy Kids is set to hit the ground running and continue to flourish into the future.

The initial business model caters for children from six weeks to school age and offers full time, part time and casual care arrangements. Busy Kids promises to provide educational, creative and fun activities, within a vibrant, evolving centre – with a dedicated,  passionate team.
