Call us old-fashioned, but we believe that books should always have a place in this rapidly changing world of technology.

What Is Busy Bookworms?

Busy Bookworms is a weekly class for 3-to-5 year olds held on Thursdays in Malvern.

What Happens In The Classes?

🎨 art and craft 🔖🎏

🎭 educational games 📚

🎼 music and movement 💃

👩‍🔬 science investigations 🕵️‍♂️

 🔢 numeracy and literacy 🔤

How is it different to Kinder or Preschool?

Over 35 carefully crafted lesson plans allow us to explore learning-through-play in a much more involved manner than typical kinder and preschool programs. Our small class sizes and diverse curriculum ensures that the skills we teach compliment and build upon each other, thus allowing children to easily absorb the concepts and consolidate their learning.

Is Busy Bookworms good preparation for school?

The skills we develop are not only important in preparation for school, but are fantastic life skills which will enhance your children’s love of books. 10+ years experience means that Busy Bookworms takes your children beyond the bedtime story to discover the wonderful ways in which books entertain, teach, challenge and inspire us.


When you help a child develop a passion for reading, you're opening a door to a whole new world of imagination, storytelling, creativity and learning. That's why we believe in creating happy booklovers.

With qualifications in Primary Teaching and Gifted Education, Amy Adeney has worked in a variety of educational settings over the past 12 years. After many years of planning and dreaming, Amy finally founded Busy Bookworms in 2017, as the perfect way to combine her skills and experience in education with her enjoyment of children’s literature.  


Our mission is to encourage a love of reading in children. We make this happen by sparking kids' imaginations – they're having fun with books before they even realise that they're learning! The Busy Bookworms Curriculum spans four terms and over 35 individual lessons. Some classes are topic-based while others are more conceptual.

Thoughts, musings and research behind why it's so important to craft a love for books amongst children. It's no exaggeration to say that we're always thinking of new ways to nurture kids' love for books and reading and hardly an hour goes by without us plotting new ways to get them away from those screens and into a beautiful book! 


Busy Bookworms classes are held on Thursdays from 10.00am – 11.30am at St George's Anglican Church, 296 Glenferrie Rd, Malvern VIC 3144
