Our Teachers

Working as a team ensures the best for each individual. Our team includes a remedial therapist, psychologist and our educators. The Bluebird staff are special. They are highly experienced and qualified and committed to life-long learning, with regular ECD courses of their own. They understand the power of gentle, firm, child centered learning. Come and visit Bluebird, and you’ll hear the difference. There’s not a wild loud noise or a controlled hush, but rather an energetic buzz of curious, stimulated children communicating with their teachers
