About the Centre
Bluebird Cobram Preschool Education is one of the leading kindergarten facilities in Cobram, with a fully qualified team committed to providing Australia’s highest level of developmental and educational services to prepare your child for entering primary school. Our dedicated team of early learning teachers are passionate about supporting the developmental needs of young children and ensuring your child is equipped with the social, cognitive and motor skills needed to embark upon their schooling journey.
Early childhood experts regard the preschool stage as one of the most significant in terms of children’s cognitive, physical and emotional development, which is why we’ve developed the Bluebird Kindergarten program to help children excel during this crucial year. We pride ourselves on delivering a world-class preschool curriculum that focuses on the development of academic competence, creative problem solving, decision-making skills, independence and creates the foundation for a life-long passion for learning.
At Bluebird Cobram Preschool, we go above and beyond to make each day special for pre-schoolers. Our kindergarten program includes play-based, interactive learning that focuses on developing memory and concentration skills, numeracy and literacy, social maturity, emotional strength, coordination and problem-solving abilities. All this 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 preschool experience at Bluebird Cobram, giving them a strong foundation for future learning and for life.
Our Cobram preschool centre is built on a foundation of trust, communication, honesty and respect, which has made us an integral part of the Cobram community. 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.

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.
