About

Welcome to Bluebird Early Education Murrumbeena.

Thank you for taking an interest in our beautiful Centre, let us share with you a little more about ourselves and why Bluebird Murrumbeena is steps ahead of the rest.

We are located within walking distance of the Murrumbeena Station, which is perfect for any commuting families using this as their main form of transport. We also provide a pram room to accommodate those who walk from home in the morning, no need to carry a clunky pram to work with you!

We are very lucky that the train drives right above our Centre. The children love to count the carriages and watch them coming and going during the day and we often hear the children sharing these stories with their families when heading home.

From the outside we may seem like a small boutique centre – but inside we share an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel, with large corridors and many Studio’s, accommodating a maximum of 122 Children per day.

We feel so fortunate to be a part of such a culturally diverse community, this is certainly reflected throughout our Centre. We are sensitive to the diverse beliefs and values of our multicultural community and we encourage you to share these with us.

Our incredible Team of Educators pride themselves on creating warm and respectful relationships with our Children, Families and our Community. We strive to create a centre where everybody feel’s as through they belong and that the special characteristics that make us all different, are celebrated.

We have an open-door policy where you are welcome to come in throughout the day and visit our service and enjoy a cup of coffee on us.

If you would like to be a part of our high-quality Centre, where everyone is truly celebrated and supported, then Bluebird Murrumbeena is the Centre for you.

Bluebird was our first ever daycare centre, recommended by a few of our friends and we had really good times there until the recent change of management. Unfortunately, it stopped meeting the high Google rating its been given (personally for me) for these reasons: - overall communication isn't great, we are not really heard as parents; - food doesn't excite me; - the rooms feel overcrowded and chaotic; - we used to get live updates on the day in the app and it seems like it's gone backwards and we don't really know what happens to our kids apart from a couple of photos per day (if lucky); - I haven't noticed an overall curriculum that links to my child's goals and aspirations, it feels a bit 'reactive'; - overall feeling of non-engagement. That being said, there are some gorgeous and loving educators in the rooms that could really flourish in a different environment.

My daughter has been attending this childcare for nearly four months and we love it! We are in the eucalyptus room and the educators are fab!!!! Really great childcare!

Inconsistent staff, high staff turnover, poor and superficial communication with families, poor leaderships, poor supervision (my child repeatedly bitten), unwilling to work with allied health/ndis services, superficial cleaning schedule, terrible food.

After having my little girl at Bluebird for almost 18 months now, its safe to say we are beyond happy. From the beautiful spaces, to the incredible educators all the way to the great information they have provided. We love the app but nothing beats chatting to the educators at the end of the day - they know my little one like their best friend. Not to mention the animals! There's so many! We love saying hi to the chicken every morning. The best way to recover from a wild morning before work!

We chose this child care as recommended by friends. We had good experience in year 2020. Adel and Su were best. But later it turned out to be unhappy story about in 2021. 1. Frequented changes of carers. 2. Missing info (many times) 3. App- most of their staff them self are not aware of full function . So much like Insta no wholesome update. 4 as per management developments of kids are posted in app. But what we see is photo shoot ( as accepted by them, only best pics are posted) 5. Kid do not respond even half of what they have written in report . So no proper post in app neither other way to see developments. 6. Front desk people are taught more on billing than customer service. We ended service in few months in 2021.
