This daycare is an amazing place! I have been working in the childcare profession for more than three years in a different city in Australia. I will just say the best place for your child and for your childcare career as well. Very clean with great staff and very welcoming. I am working through an agency in Blinky but I never felt like I am a casual person. They always treat every staff equally. It has a very homey feeling. Amazing staff with so much heart and a caring mindset. The management is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment and I’m very thankful for Blinky bill and the whole team. Definitely made the right choice by choosing this place!❤️☺️

I have been working in childcare for years, since being at Blinky Bill since May 2021 I feel since joining here I have found my love and passion again. The relationships with families and children has always been the highlight of my career and to be able to provide children with a safe, loving and caring environment is what I am for. Working with G8 Education and the team at Blinky I have felt supported, encouraged and motivated to do my best. They provide alot of opportunity for growth and development and I can't wait to see where my career will grow.

Blinky bill Gowrie has been a world of good for our daughter, she has excelled in ways we couldn’t even being to imagine, the entire Center hold a very professional manner to them but also have a very homely vibe, I cannot wait to see our daughter grow and learn more life skills from this wonderful Center !

My daughter has been attending since she was about 8 months old and we have always been just thrilled with the staffs attentions and care of our daughter. She is now 2+1/2 and still absolutely loves it! She tells the staff she loves them and genuinely gives them hugs. She talked about school , the staff and her friends all the time at home. The kind educational activities and food preparation involvement is just fantastic. We love the updates we receive from staff and seeing the pictures of the kids at play. Our only concern is the care of staff from the parent company. We feel staff are so underpaid and over worked for their efforts and deserve more care. We are concerned this is the main reason for staff losses. As we have lost many of our favourite staff in recent times and we would really like to see a better retention rate. They are all wonderful and would like to see them celebrated by their own company.

Blinky Bill has been the best choice for us when it came to choosing a childcare centre for our toddler. My first impression when we had our walk through was how clean and tidy the centre was (we visited in the afternoon) and how friendly the staff members were. The educators are always warm and welcoming when we arrive for drop off and pick up. And provide sufficient updates and communication throughout the day. The wide variety of age appropriate activities and resources provided by the educators, keep our toddler engaged, happy and content. The care the staff at Blinky Bill provide our child is second to none, I couldn’t recommend them enough!

I am so at ease sending my child in Blinky as the manager is extremely supportive and all the educators were so helpful on the transitioning in regards on his daily routine. I love seeing my child’s daily photos on how he interacts in his new environment.

The Blinky Bell centre has been a wonderful day care enter for our child.The educators and the director are very caring, helpful and responsible. They provided my son with all the support and care he needed to settle into the centre. They still continue to do so which is helping my little one learn and grow everyday. I thank the centre for all the good things they are doing and would highly recommend this centre to any parent looking to provide a safe and progressive environment for their little one.

Being a first time mum it's always overwhelming to have your previous one in someone's else care but this eased when I visited the centre for tour , the staff were do friendly to show me around,the rooms looked clean tidy and calm. Babies were happy with staff sitting with them. The tour was very knowledgeable as centre manager shared some great resources for first time families I really appreciated the time and highly recommend the service
