About the Centre

Care and Education for Children aged 6 weeks until 5 years

Welcome to Bluebird Early Education Fern Bay.

We are delighted to be a part of the growing community in Fern Bay and welcome you to come and look through the wonderful environments that we have on offer for your children. We are a purpose-built Centre that can accommodate 104 children per day, and we cater for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age.

Our beautiful Centre offers 6 bright and natural studio spaces that provide endless learning invitations that will support your child’s development. We also run an indoor-outdoor program that provides your child with access to the outdoors, all day.

We run regular excursions within the local community, taking our children out on community walks, bush walks and on visits to local businesses and attractions.

Relationships mean everything to us here at Fern Bay and we will do everything that we can in order to ensure that you and your child, feel safe and secure within the environments that we provide.

We want you to know that when you enroll at our Centre, you become part of our family – We will be here for you always, even when your child has gone off to school.

Our fantastic Team of Educators deliver a play-based curriculum that will embrace the unique interests, experiences and capacities of your child, allowing them to flourish into confident individuals. We believe that all children are capable learners and our studios reflect the confidence that we have in a child’s ability to explore and investigate their world.

We also have a beautiful interactive kitchen that promotes the exploration of nutritious meals and healthy eating with the children. All of our meals are prepared by our in-house Chef, we trust you will be able to enjoy the delicious aromas wondering out of this space.

We would love to meet you and your family and show you through our Centre.

Meet the Centre Manager

Hello, my name is Gemma, and I am the Centre Manager here at Bluebird Fern Bay. I have been working in the Early Childhood Industry for over 10 years and I hold my Diploma in Early Childhood as well as my Bachelor of Early Childhood Education.

As a mother of three young children, I recognise the importance of finding an Early Education Centre you can trust, I also value the importance that relationships play during this journey.

My goal as an experienced Centre Manager is to provide High Quality Care and Education for all, which aligns with our Oxanda ethos, rituals and traditions. I believe in mentoring my team, empowering them to create outstanding and exciting experiences which foster and enhance children’s love for learning!

I see children as capable and unique individuals with their own strengths and capabilities. When exposed to positive environments children have the ability to achieve incredible results.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the Bluebird Fern Bay Community, my door will always be open to you and your Family.
