Our goal at Perfect Start Birkdale Childcare Centres is to provide daycare facilities with a warm and nurturing environment for children to explore their natural curiosity, and learn through play. We have two Birkdale childcare centres, one in Birkdale Rd, and the other in Mary St. Both are a home away from home where we strive to provide a safe and loving space for your child to grow. We have a caring and professional team of educators who will support your child every step of the way on their journey. We pride ourselves on giving each child in our care a high quality experience through our wonderful staff and wide range of age-appropriate resources.
We are conveniently located near Birkdale Fair Shopping Centre in the beautiful suburb of Birkdale in Redland Bay. We are open from 6:15am to 6:15pm daily, except on public holidays. Our centres are well known for our wonderful team of friendly staff and our amazing natural outdoor playgrounds. We have an open-door policy and would love to show you around. Please drop by!

PROGRAMS AT OUR BIRKDALE CHILDCARE CENTRE
At Perfect Start we believe that children should be encouraged to follow their natural interests and curiosity. Our curriculum is designed upon the Early Years Learning Framework, and provides play-based opportunities for your child to learn, discover and explore their environment. Our emergent curriculum is a constantly evolving response to the changing needs of the children in our daycare facilities, their parents and the community. As our educators get to know the interests of the children and collaborate with their parents on their development, they adapt the curriculum to build on the children’s strengths and interests. We provide for a balance of indoor and outdoor activities, and offer programs for Infants, Toddlers, Junior Kindy, Kindy and Kindergarten
