Want To Learn More About Bluebird?

My son absolutely loves going to Bluebird Childcare. He does so many activities. He has learnt so many more words and grown so much since first starting there. Leaving him everyday is like leaving him with family. The level of care from the educators is so high. I wouldn't put him anywhere else.

We've just moved back to Busselton after a few years away. My daughter attended the centre as a 1 and a half year old and is now back as a 4 year old and I was amazed at how many of the staff remembered her and welcomed her back in with open arms. Now I have also added my 20 month old son in to the centre, and after only a few sessions, he doesn't cry when I leave him and opens his arms for cuddles from the lovely staff in the baby room! We're so happy for the kids to be back in the care of the amazing staff at Bluebird 🙂

Bluebird is a wonderful choice for childcare in the Busselton area. The staff could not be more caring, dedicated or efficient. My daughter has additional needs and every member of the team, right from the director down have been so accommodating that every day that she has been at Bluebird has been a breeze. The facilities are top notch, policies and procedures are well thought out and clear and easy to understand, craft activities plentiful and enjoyable for the kiddos but best of all my daughter loves going there! I cannot recommend this centre enough.

My girls are school age and love attending after school care. They always have a good snack and there are plenty of activities to choose from for them to do. They love the staff and can attend at their school which is most helpful. I'd definitely recommend Bluebird!

Blue bird is very reliable and friendly place. My two children were very shy and clingy at the beginning but not long after they love to go there. I really appreciate to all carers at the centre.

Bluebird Childcare have been great for our son & the caring staff have made our transition to daycare really easy and comfortable. It's fantastic that he can continue to attend Jo Jingles while he's at daycare - which he absolutely loves! Thanks to Danni & the team in the babies room for all the care you give Josh!

I love the fabulous ladies at Bluebird! I work across the road from the Clydebank Centre and my baby attends the centre weekly. To know he gets cuddles and love and healthy nourishment through out the day makes the visits so much easier on myself when we say goodbyes. The kids are really spoilt for play equipment and space it really is like a 2nd home and I have the up most faith in the beautiful ladies who look after my baby when he stays! The facilities are always very clean and well taken care of and the flexibility of care is unreal!!! I strongly recommend our Bluebird family as a highly professional team of great positive ladies to take care of my kids😍

Bluebird has been amazing for our family over the past 3.5 years. Our children have been given the best of everything from play equipment to all the amazing learning activities the staff complete through the day. We have loved the fact that in 3.5 years the staff turnover is minimal creating comfort for the kids who have grown to bond with the ladies. Mel is always accommodating with extra days of care when I need to change for work we appreciate this a lot. Bluebird is fantastic and I would not change a thing.

We were recommended 'Bluebirds' when we moved to the area, and we were not disappointed. Both our children love the before and after school care, and they love the vacation care program. The staff are professional, attentive and caring. The centres are inviting, clean, organised, flexible and fun. Bluebirds has been such a welcome addition to our family, and has really helped our family manage the difficulties commonly associated with working families and childcare.

Our family could not be happier with the care that the staff at Bluebird Childcare provide our children. The staff work hard to maintain a safe and stimulating environment, where children are constantly engaged in a range of activities. Bluebird has always gone above and beyond to help accommodate our family's changing needs and we have been very grateful for this.I could continue on with my praise for Bluebird Childcare, however the most important opinion is that of the children and my girls get excited to go to Bluebird each day. They talk fondly of all the staff and can't leave without giving them all a big hug 🙂

My son has been going to Bluebird for 2 years, first in the toddler house and now in the big house. They are always doing fun and education activities and some days it's hard to get him to leave as he loves being there so much! I love the homely feeling and the genuine care that is shown to him and our family.

Bluebird is like a home away from home. We recently relocated and I was extremely nervous about finding a new daycare. Bluebird welcomed us with open hearts and hands. I love that is really does have the 'homely' feel. Management and daycare staff are always happy and helpful and management always go above and beyond to help (they have even dropped off emergency supplies off to my hubby when I was interstate for work and he had a very sick toddler at home). Bluebird isn't just a daycare centre, they are a second family! They are for the community and that is their biggest point of difference.

My oldest boy was with the 'Bluebird Family' for nearly 3 years before starting Kindy and my youngest has been there for approx 10 months. I say family because it is a very caring and nurturing environment. My eldest learnt a lot of educational and social skills that helped him to transition very smoothly to Kindy. So, I felt it was important for my youngest son to follow in his footsteps. Thanks to everyone who has been involved with both of my boys. Can't recommend it enough!

As an auditor I must say this place is highly compliant it's run by fantastic staff and the manager of the Centre is very experienced and cares about the children. I really would highly recommend it to any parents that are looking to place their children into child care.
