Care for Yourself
While we care for your child

Parents also need to shop, make medical appointments, have beauty treatments, and catch up with friends and colleagues for a coffee or meeting. But shopping, hair appointments and lunch with toddlers and young children can became negative and stressful for everybody. BumbleBee Hive offer a short-term, safe, affordable and easy to book child care centre, located right at the shopping centre, designed to reassure both parent and child that mum or dad is right there if needed.

If your child is walking and right up to age 8; BumbleBee Hive could be the answer to fun shopping for both of you. Nappy changes and short-term bookings are not an issue for us. You can also book online ahead of time or at regular intervals to suit your shopping cycle. Members receive benefits and discounts, but you are also welcome to utilise our sign-in, sign out, pay as you go system.

We are all guilty of spending money to pacifiy our children while we shop. Poor quality, one-time use toys; snacks and candy ; pester-power in the supermarket aisles blowing out our budget; even paying for our little girls to have their nails done with us at $25 each time! Or choosing an outfit that costs too much and doesn’t really suit us, because we are pressed for time and our toddler is upset. (Some say we even save their marriages with lunch or dinner / movie dates while their children play safely with us!) Save your money with efficient use of your time and considered purchases; with our affordable hourly charge.

– Your Driver’s License ( ID)

– A pair of socks to wear in the play centre

– A change of nappy / clothes if necessary

– A mobile contact number so that we can call you at anytime should your child become upset

At your first visit, you will complete a detailed registration form, showing allergies, toileting instructions and so on for your child, and you will receive a password & personal family registration number – known only to you. If you need someone else to pick up your child, you would be responsible for sharing those details with them. Please allow a little extra time to complete your child’s Registration , read carefully and complete it ahead of time. Every visit after that will be a quick and easy sign in/ sign out system at the desk. Because our staff will be focussed on caring for children, we will not be able to take a great deal of time with you at the front desk, so please familiarise yourself with the details here.

Your Registration Form will indicate your preferences on nappy changes and toileting. Your options are to take your child to the bathroom yourself, or authorise us to securely take your child to the bathroom. We would suggest for a hair appointment for example, the latter may be the most suitable for you.

Local authorities recommend short term child care of this kind should be no longer than 3 hours. We believe a 3 hour period should cover most needs and be a good experience for your child.

No, you must be at the Shopping Centre

– “ If I need to have a break with the girls, I wouldn’t do it any other way , my 2 year old loves the dancing and the drawing, and I feel so much happier and I can be a nicer “Mummy” once I’ve had a coffee, and a little bit of “big people time. ” 😊

- Jayne, Seven Hills

– “ Getting my hair done used to be a night mare, I would look forward to it, only to become stressed and upset as my toddler would get bored, and run away. I always book him in now with the girls at BumbleBee Hive – that way we both have a good time. ”

- Courtney, Carindale
