Our beautiful new centre in South Morang is now open.
Bluebird Early Education is fully committed to providing Australia’s highest level of developmental and educational childcare services. Lead by a management team that includes Australia’s foremost early childhood specialists, Bluebird ensures each centre is a premium early education facility.
Our aim is to be flexible in meeting the needs of working parents, providing seamless transition into care. Our loving and highly trained staff make this possible by bringing each and every centre to life as a safe and nurturing home away from home.
At Bluebird we are proud of the service that we provide, and go above and beyond to make each day special. Our program includes play-based learning and regular sports activities and games to develop cognitive ability, strength, social awareness and motor skills, this is supported by our on-site cooks who provide healthy, nutritional meals cooked fresh on site each day to ensure each child is getting their daily meal requirements. Our Bush Kinder program helps foster an appreciation and respect for the environment, while regular community excursions 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 experience, giving them a strong foundation for future learning and for life.
Hi, I’m Erin Meachem, the centre manager here at Bluebird South Morang.
Early childhood education has been a lifelong passion of mine. I attended fulltime childcare from a very early age and deeply cherished the love, support and guidance I was given by my teachers during that time. I truly believe my childcare teachers made me who I am today, and I grew up inspired by their dedication and commitment, eventually pursuing a career in childcare of my own.
With over 22 years of childcare experience now under my belt, including eight years of centre management and 18 months as a family day care provider, I have worked in a variety of centres with children of all age groups, allowing me to gain valuable skills and expertise.
At Bluebird South Morang, our approach to education and care is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, where children learn via play with a variety of natural materials. We believe the environment plays a vital role when it comes to teaching children in a play-based setting and value outdoor learning spaces as highly as formal classrooms.
As centre manager, I feel it’s important for me to be a role model for the type of professionalism I expect from my staff and I accomplish this by providing dedicated support, ideas and enthusiasm to keep staff excited about the curriculum they’re providing. At South Morang, we’re a very friendly group of educators with a passion for working with children and will always put your child’s health, safety, wellbeing and development first. We believe parents are the child’s first teacher and strongly value family involvement.
When I’m not busy at the Bluebird Centre, I love spending time with my two teenage children and especially enjoy our Thursday night family shopping ritual.
