About the Centre

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 months 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 everyone, my name is Courtney Hartley and I am proud to be leading the Team at Bluebird Fern Bay as the Centre Manager.

I have worked in the Early Childhood Industry for over 14 years. I began at 18 as a Certificate III Trainee and, after falling in love with the possibilities of learning with and alongside children, I continued to study, securing my Diploma in Early Childhood.

I have Managed Early Childhood Centres for the last 7 years and I am currently completing my Bachelor of Early Education 0-5years, as well as my Diploma in Leadership and Management in Early Childhood.

After becoming a Mum, I really felt the importance of connections with Families and the value of a ‘sense of belonging’ for children. This has become such an imperative part of my teaching philosophy and I pride myself of building meaningful relationships with Children, Families, our Team, the land, and our Community.

I believe in empowering our Educators to nurture Children to reach their full potential, at their own pace and to understand that it is a privilege to watch and support Children’s growth and development.

I am honoured to be able to work in such a wonderful industry where we have the honour to work alongside children and see the world through their eyes. My goal will always be to put the CHILD first in Early CHILDhood.

I really enjoy warm welcomes on arrival in the morning and the ‘can’t wait to see you tomorrow’ on pick up. I will always put time aside to be available for supportive chats regarding your Family and Child.

I can’t wait to welcome you into the Bluebird Fern Bay community.
