BLUE LAB Family Day Care
Meet Antonia and Martina
Hi! My name is Antonia and this is our Blue Lab Family Day Care in Dianella.
I am a former primary school teacher and I have taught first grade for 7 years. I was also a Reading Coordinator for lower grades from Kindy to second grade. I was passionate to implement work stations for small groups in our school.
I then became a full time mom of our beautiful daughter Martina and now I am so looking forward taking the next step in Early Childhood Education.
Somos bilingües | We are bilingual
En este Day Care hablamos en español, lo cual es genial para niños hispanoparlantes que deseen reforzar y aprender la lengua de al menos uno de sus padres.
We speak Spanish in this center. This is great for english-speaking kids if you want them to start learning a second language at the best possible age.

Know how well do we do
A top-notch service for you!
In late 2017, BLUE LAB went through the NQS rating process by the Education and Care Regulatory Unit.
The rating measures the quality of any Early Childhood Service in Australia. It examines seven areas and scores them within a four-scale system: Needs improvement, Working Towards, Meeting, and Exceeding what is expected.
BLUE LAB has scored 5 Meeting and 2 Exceeding. These last ones were in Relationship with Children and Collaborative with Families, where it really matters.
But how good is our score? Is just good… or really good?
My philosophy is respecting the fact that young children are self-learners and little explorers. My job is to provide them with a safe environment, rich and motivating experiences and that promotes children learning and development.
I also think is very important to establish a positive and nurturing relationship with the children and of course with the families. I am really looking forward for you to come to visit our Family Day Care.
