About the Centre
The Bluebird Early Education Centre Moe believes in providing an excellent and engaging early childhood education experience. Our program is built on the belief that children will excel when given the opportunity to explore and create within their classroom environment, which is why we facilitate play-based learning, regular sports activities and games to help develop cognitive ability, strength, social awareness and motor skills.
Our flexible programming has been carefully designed to meet the needs of all children in the classroom, using a child-centred, art-based approach that helps provide the foundation on which all later learning is built. We believe all children have the right to feel safe and secure in their environment and encourage them to become confident learners at their own pace while ensuring they feel safe and nurtured while away from home.
Bluebird Moe provides a soothing, natural environment for learning and development that focuses on diversity while devoting respect and dedication to all children and families. Our state-of-the-art early learning facility offers the highest standards of care, providing such features as a fully secured playground, interactive play zones, veggie gardens, onsite parking, air-conditioning and in-house cooks that provide healthy and nutritious meals for the children daily. We also offer a fantastic Bush Kinder program to help children foster positive, respectful relationships with the environment, and enjoy excursions around the wider Moe community to help children build a sense of belonging.
The Bluebird approach was carefully crafted by a highly qualified management team that includes Australia’s foremost early childhood specialists, and at Bluebird Moe, all of our carers and educators are fully qualified to provide the highest service of care and education.
The best way to understand our program is to visit Bluebird Moe and see our childcare centre in action. We strongly believe that forming a close alliance between educators and family members greatly benefits each child and go above and beyond to provide an exceptional quality of care and education for children and caregivers. We look forward to showing you around our facility and building a long-term relationship with you and your family. Contact the friendly team at Bluebird Moe to arrange a tour and meet our dedicated teachers today.
Meet the Centre Manager
Hi, I’m Kate Hanley, the centre manager here at Bluebird Moe.
As a devoted mum to five beautiful children, I have always been passionate about early childhood learning and children’s development. I love working with and supporting people in their own life journeys and cherish the concept of family. Recognising that the number one teacher in a child’s life are their parents, my personal philosophy aims to guide educators as the second teacher to support children’s growth and development. I strongly believe in the environment being the third teacher for children, which is why I adore the setting of high quality early education facilities.
I have been working in the education sector for over 20 years, undertaking varied roles such as disability services for the education department and program design and implementation for the Transport Accident Commission. With qualifications in community, disability and early childhood education services, my range of experience brings new elements to Bluebird Centre.
At Bluebird Moe, our service reflects a soothing, natural environment for learning and development that devotes respect and dedication to children and families. Inspired by the work of early childhood theorists Reggio Emilia, Maria Montessori and Rudolf Steiner, we incorporate these philosophies into our own working pedagogical practices, which are reflective throughout the centre. We encourage perspective parents considering early childhood education and care to come into Bluebird Moe for a tour of the centre and to meet out wonderful staff.
When I’m not busy at the Bluebird Centre, you’ll often find me riding horses on my horse stud in rural Gippsland. An avid equestrian, I have been competing nationally since I was a child and recently trained and competed in the Victorian State Championships, successfully winning my section and taking out the state title.
