Blinky Bill Early Childhood Centre is a fun-filled and educational child care facility for long day care where children learn, play and interact in a safe and friendly environment. The centre is open from 7:15 am to 6:30 pm and cares for children from birth to six years.
Your children will be encouraged to learn each day with programs based on the Early Years Learning Framework by our team of experienced and qualified early childhood educators.

Please feel welcome to drop in and say hello and let us show you around.
What is your name?
How long have you been working in early education?
I have been in the early childhood sector for 18 years. I started as a causal at 17 years old and my career has grown from there.
What is your favourite part of working at the centre?
That would have to be my three main stakeholders: the children, their families and my team.
What qualifications do you hold?
I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services, Diploma in Leadership and Management, Food Safety Supervisor, Senior First Aid & nominated supervisor.
What are you most proud of at your centre?
I am proud and very humbled to have the privilege to be a part of a company that has given me the resources to continuously improve our practices and ultimately watch our services bloom into something that is meaningful to our children, families and community.
What inspired you to become an educator?
When I was 17 my best friend rang me and asked to come and help at a service and I have never left. Children have always been a big part of my family’s life, there has never been a time where I can’t remember children not being around me. I found ‘the job’ to be second nature but what inspires me still to this day, is the lessons of trust that the children teach me because when it’s embedded, its implicit and I love that.
What values are most important to you in your team members?
Integrity, accountability and collaboration.

Reviews and Testimonials
See what some of our parents say about our centre:
“Each of our boys have been at Blinky Bill’s since they were under 12 months, and they both love it. We have confidence in the staff, they certainly have the welfare of the children as their highest priority. Blinky’s engage the children in fantastic activities like craft, music – singing and dancing, and physical games (and field trips!! – my son always talks about that), and the social skills the boys have learned from being there is also key to their development. I have recommended Blinky Bills many times.”
“They say it takes a village to raise a child, and in Blinky Bill Early Childhood Centre, we have found that village. All the staff – from the director to the floaters, are all dedicated, warm and inviting to making the experience for my child the best it can be. They have been flexible to the needs of my child and have provided so much support when some times were tough. Enrolling my daughter at Blinky’s was the best choice I have made for her, and she loves it! I don’t know of many other children who don’t want to come home at the end of the day, that is how much she loves it!”
“A friend recommended Blinky Bill’s to us and my children have attended the centre for over 3 years. My children love going to Blinky’s and I am quite upset that my eldest daughter will be leaving the centre to attend school. The staff are fantastic and I can’t thank them enough for all that they have done. Two other families from my playgroup now attend Blinky’s based on my recommendations and the convenient location.”
“My daughter currently goes to Blinky Bills and loves it. My son went there a couple of years ago and loved it also. The staff are so friendly and they love the kids. It is really handy having the centre next to the primary school both for dropping off and picking up, as my son goes to the primary school now. My daughter comes home with pictures and craft that she has completed and she is so proud of it. I would recommend this day care to anyone.”
“I have had children at Blinky Bill’s for the last 5 years and I have nothing but praise for the centre. The staff are very friendly, helpful and genuinely care for all the kids in their charge. The program has kept my children very stimulated and engaged and they have learnt a lot of valuable skills from their time at Blinkys. I would very highly recommend the centre.”
