Welcome to Casa Bambini Blackburn.
Casa Bambini Blackburn provides care and education for children between 6 weeks to 6 years. For your convenience, nappies and nutritious meals are provided.
The centre is purpose built with attention given to colour and design to create learning spaces which feel like the children’s own rooms. The centre boasts age appropriate services, facilities and resources.
Our welcoming environment is considered the “third teacher”. The Casa Bambini team carefully organise spaces for small and large group projects and small intimate spaces for one, two or three children.
Our programs are inspired by Reggio Emilia and our landscaped gardens have been designed to enhance and enrich your child’s imagination, creativity and sense of wonder.
At Casa Bambini we have a distinctive philosophy and innovative curriculum pedagogy and method of organisation which recognises the potential of young children to question, reflect, problem solve, theorise, experiment and express their findings.
Our Kindergarten program is supported by the Victorian Government.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our page.
My name is Deon Stephens and I have been involved in the Early Childhood Education industry for the last fifteen years. Throughout this time I have held several positions including: Centre Cook, Group Leader, Educational Leader and Centre Director. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and I am currently studying an Advanced Diploma in Community Sector Management.
My decision to join the industry was heavily influenced by the creative minds of young children. I thrive on working in partnership with families to develop a sense of belonging for all children,
As Centre Director of Casa Bambini Blackburn, my mission is to ensure that the centre and its educators deliver the high quality care and programs to all children and families.
Casa Bambini Blackburn provides care and education for up to 110 children each day with the support of 30 educators. The team are enthusiastic and passionate about each child’s well-being and education. Our stimulating environment encourages children’s love of learning, exploration and a curiosity to develop.

Reviews and Testimonials
Here’s what some of our parents have to say about our centre:
“We have been at Casa Bambini for close to 4 years and would highly recommend it! We have always been impressed by the high standard of care our boys receive. The premises are lovely and Jen cooks up a storm in the kitchen for the kids!”
“I have been so thrilled with Casa Bambini since I first enrolled my son there in 2009. He is now about to enter the four year old kinder program, while his little sister will be going into Toddler Room next year. I am frequently observing gentle and heart warming moments between the carers and my children, whether it is around a learning opportunity, an emotional moment, or an exciting acheivement. I would (and do) recommend Casa Bambini to my friends – when they are pregnant – get in early! It is also a beautifully presented centre (gorgeous calm neutral tones rather than harsh bright colours) and all of the staff seem to share a positive vibe and philosophy. Thanks Casa, and well done!”
“My daughter has been attending Casa Bambini Blackburn for almost 3 years and I’ve been very pleased with the level of care she receives. She is always excited to go and comes home very happy. The centre is extremely safe, spacious & clean – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the centre to any parent. Many thanks to the team at Casa Bambini for giving my child a fun and safe environment to be in and for allowing me to know that she is in safe hands when she is in your care.”
“We’re very happy with the team, facilities and atmosphere at Casa Bambini. The ladies in the nursery room are really lovely and create wonderful activities and fun for the kids everyday, as well as giving detailed feedback to us as parents.”
