Our Team

June Rusdon
Chief Executive Officer, Busy Bees Southeast Asia

Ms Rusdon first conceptualised Learning Vision more than 20 years ago, from her desire as a new mother to establish a quality early childhood centre from which her children could benefit.

Her idea came to fruition in 1990 when the first centre started operations at Bukit Batok. The learning curve was steep as she had minimal experience and knowledge in Early Childhood Education. She started her research on the topic and enquired at relevant governing Ministries on regulations and demands. In an already established childcare market, she marketed the pioneer centre herself and worked from her minimalist "office", a stone table at the void deck next to the centre. Today, the business she started is the leader in Early Childhood Education in Singapore with 18 centres islandwide.

Over the years, with her leadership, the company has also been awarded numerous awards with the latest Singapore Quality Class (SQC) Certification in 2008 in recognition of the successful deployment of best practices throughout all levels of the business.
