About the Centre
Bluebird Early Education is one of the leading childcare and early learning facilities in Cobram. If you’re looking for an early learning centre that’s fully committed to providing Australia’s highest level of developmental and educational childcare services, Bluebird Cobram is looking forward to welcoming you and your child to our family! We accept enrolments from six weeks to six years, with a dedicated team of teachers and carers who are fully qualified and passionate about supporting the developmental needs of young children.
Bluebird Early Education is led by a management team that includes Australia’s foremost early childhood specialists, ensuring each and every Bluebird centre offers a premium early education facility. Our aim is to be flexible in meeting the needs of working parents while providing seamless transition into care. Our loving and highly trained staff make this possible by bringing each and every centre to life as a safe and nurturing home away from home.
At Bluebird Cobram, we are proud of the service we provide and go above and beyond to make each day special. Our program includes play-based learning, regular sports activities and games designed to develop cognitive ability, strength, social awareness and motor skills, which is supported by our on-site cooks who provide healthy, nutritional meals cooked fresh onsite daily to ensure each child receives their daily meal requirements.
Our unique Bush Kinder program helps foster an appreciation and respect for the environment, while regular community excursions around Cobram help our children build a sense of belonging and engagement. All these elements and more go towards ensuring your child has a fully immersive and well-rounded experience at Bluebird Cobram, giving them a strong foundation for future learning and for life.
At Bluebird Cobram, we encourage families to involve themselves with our centre as much as possible, as we believe fostering strong relationships with parents, caregivers and siblings is an important part of the early learning experience. While children are our main focus, we ensure families feel supported and know that the Bluebird team is here for them when they need us.
Our Cobram childcare centre is built on a foundation of trust, communication, honesty and respect, which has made us an integral part of the Cobram community. We embrace diversity and welcome families from all backgrounds – get in touch with the Bluebird team today to arrange an inspection of our centre and see why we’ve earned a reputation as the best childcare facility in Cobram.

Meet the Centre manager
Hi, I’m Kathy Bourke, the centre manager here at Bluebird Cobram.
Early childhood has always been the perfect fit for me as I’m a real people person who loves to talk and meet new people. I’ve always loved the honest, straight-forward nature of children and admire the way they accept people for who they are. In high school, I volunteered for an arts and crafts program at a local primary school and enjoyed it so much that I decided to form a career in childcare.
I first entered the early education industry in 1990, working in both an occasional care centre and a LDC centre in Canberra. 28 years later, I am now the director of two early education services – a preschool and a childcare centre. I have worked with children of all ages over the years and developed many valuable skills and expertise.
At Bluebird Cobram, we like to build partnerships with families and are big on incorporating family into our centre as much as possible. While our focus is always on the child, we want families to know we are also here for them. We actively recognise the valuable role that parents play as the child’s first teachers and work hard to understand and respect the values of each family.
We believe that forming partnerships helps establish a community where both children and families know they belong and can make valuable contributions. We put a strong focus on communication, honesty and respect, which helps us build authentic relationships that everyone benefits from. By bringing educators and families together socially, we aim to form and strengthen the partnerships we need in the care and education of your children.
When I’m not busy at the Bluebird Centre, you’ll find me indulging in my other passion – riding.
