Early Childhood Educator,
Musician and programmer

Mel is the talented, creative and extremely qualified educator behind our baby and music programs.

For years, our baby music and play programs have seen little bees flourish and thrive. Meeting the developmental needs of the baby and the social and emotional needs of parents. Our programs are written, refined and practiced by our highly experienced and qualified Early Childhood Educator and Musician, Melissa Saunders.
Melissa has spent 10 years as an Early Childhood Educator, eventually specialising in observing children for referral with extra needs. Pursuing her interest in music saw her gain qualifications through ANZCA to teach Modern Singing.
Moving to Newcastle in 2014, Melissa began performing in the duo Little Cents at local venues around Newcastle. They have recorded an album “Love and other Fractured Fairy Tales” available on Band Camp. https://littlecents.bandcamp.com/
Melissa completed the training and began teaching Kindermusik for Hive Founder Vanessa Lynch and has been part of the incredible team ever since.
Her passion for music as a learning tool and her belief in family as the centre and foundation of a child’s’ ability to succeed with joy, infect every class she facilitates.
More recently, Melissa has written and recorded music for children which are available on Spotify and Apple Music https://melissasaunders.hearnow.com/
