Welcome to Bluebird Early Education Croydon, our beautiful purpose-built Early Education Centre or as we like to refer to it – “our home away from home”.

Upon entering our Centre, you will be welcomed with our large community lounge which includes a dedicated breakfast bar and coffee machine for you and your family to enjoy, before dropping your child off into one of our 6 spacious Studios.

At Bluebird Croydon, we pride ourselves on the warm, genuine relationships we create with our Families. It is so important to us that all Children, Families and Visitors feel as though they are valued members of our Bluebird Community from the moment they walk through our front door.

We truly believe that ‘the environment is the third teacher’ and place great importance on exploring the natural world around us. From our Nursery right through to our Kindergarten – we enjoy regular excursions and community walks providing endless learning opportunities for all ages!

Our Team of Educators are extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and passionate when it comes to offering High Quality Care and Education for children. Through innovative environments, exciting experiences, and collaborative planning with our Families, we create fun and educational Programs where children naturally thrive.

Our dedicated onsite Chef provides delicious home cooked meals – in line with the Australian Healthy Eating Guidelines – including, breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. You will be welcomed with delicious aromas escaping our kitchen and may find yourself wondering “I wonder if I should join them for lunch.”

Meet the Centre Manager

Welcome to Bluebird Early Education Croydon.

My name is Katrina, and I am the Centre Manager of our beautiful Centre. I have worked within the Early Education industry for over 12 years, and I hold my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.

I have enjoyed a variety of roles throughout my career, which have not only provided me with great understanding, knowledge and experience but have also allowed me to be a great support and mentor to our Team.

As a devoted mum of two girls – I recognise the importance of building trusting relationships. It is so important that the bonds we form with each Child, their Families and our surrounding Community start from the moment you walk through our doors.

Our Centre reflects a ‘home away from home’ providing High Quality Educational Programs designed to “ignite the spirit of learning, friendships and community” for all. I am lucky to work alongside a Team of dedicated and passionate Educators who are as excited and grateful as I am to be a part of your child’s learning journey.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the Bluebird Family.
