Welcome to Bluebird Early Education Armstrong Creek and thank you for taking an interest in our Centre, we would like to share with you, a little more about ourselves…
In our Centre we practice a ‘holistic approach’ when Educating your Child – tying in beautifully with our Reggio Emilia streak.
Our aim is to encourage and empower children to be happy, confident and involved learners – however – “It takes a village to raise a child”. We truly believe this journey is most effective when shared between your Family, our Team and of course the Community.
Your child will be encouraged to be an active participant in their own learning journey, some of the key attributes we will work alongside the children to achieve are:
Resilience, self- confidence, teamwork, problem-solving skills, creative thinking, responsibility and scientific thinking.
We believe in creating safe and secure environments where everybody can feel they belong. Our indoor/outdoor curriculum allows children to freely engage in the outdoor program whenever they choose, rain hail or shine. Some of the exciting resources they will be able to engage with in the outdoor environments include, water pumps, mud pits, the mega fort and tool sheds.
(We also enjoy small group experiences around our fire pit.)
Our Educators take pride in our Educational programs, engaging environments, positive relationships with our Children and lasting partnerships with our Families – we are incredibly proud of the caring, supportive and passionate Team that they are.
Each day our in-house chef provides the most delicious meals for the children, these are created in conjunction with Nutrition Australia and meet 50% of your child’s nutritional intake for that day!
We also bake fresh homemade treats daily, which can be found in our foyer next to our coffee machine. A little perk for our Families in those busy morning drop-offs.
We can not wait to meet you and your family.

Meet the Centre Manager
My name is Michelle and I am extremely proud to be the Centre Manager for Blue Bird Early Education Armstrong Creek. I hold my Diploma in Early Education and Care, have over 20 years’ experience in the Early Education field and I am also a Mother of 4 children aged between 7 to 15 years.
I take pride in inspiring my Educators to think outside of the box while mentoring them to deliver High Quality Educational Programs. I can often be found in our Studio’s alongside my Educators and the Children, this is my favourite place to be and I feel truly privileged to be involved in their learning journey.
Nothing gives me more pleasure than when I walk into the centre each morning, greeted by excited children who are eager to play, learn and discover. Although, I also enjoy hearing children share stories with their loved ones, about the adventures they have had during their time with us.
Offering our Families a hot cuppa and delicious muffin each morning is becoming a ritual for me, being able to create genuine and trusting partnerships between myself and our Families is incredibly important. Communication is key, so please feel free to approach me at any time if you have any questions or queries, the door is always open.
I have put my heart and soul into creating and opening this beautiful centre from day one. It brings me absolute delight to watch as our Armstrong Creek – home away from home – community, begins to evolve.
