Meet the Centre Manager – Lucia Cerullo

I began my career in Early Childhood Education and Care in 2014 and have completed a few Diploma’s in Early Learning Services, Leadership and Management and Human Resources Management. I have also completed a Master of Sociology.

Our team is dedicated to creating the best experience for each child in our care. From nurturing, caring, learning all the way through to supporting our families every day – the team wholeheartedly love what they do. We think of our centre as a big family where educators, children, families and community come together to give children the best experiences for them to learn, play and grow.

A favourite part of my busy day is when I go to the nursery room at the end of the day and get to engage with the gorgeous babies in our care.

Hear from our families

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!”

  • Mel

 

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.”

  • Kiera

 

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.”

  • Karen

 

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.”
