About Macarthy Road Education and Childcare

Welcome to Macarthy Road Education & Childcare (Early Birds Education and Childcare) was the first childcare centre built in the Marsden / Crestmead area, in 1987 and has been owned and operated by the Bird Family ever since.

The dedicated owners, Karen and Gavin Bird have over 40 years’ experience teaching in early childhood and primary education between them. They believe that ‘caring’ and ‘education’ go hand-in-hand and that children’s experiences in the early years are a vital first step in what should be a lifelong quest for knowledge.

    Been using this childcare center for 3 years now, always reccomnend to friends & family. Staff are super friendly & always helpful. My child has grown from a quiet individual to an outgoing big personality. ☺️

    Being a young mum putting my children in daycare was always something I never thought I'd be ok with, until I met the ladies at Macarthy Road Education & Childcare my 2 girls love it and they learn so much. The staff are really helpful and approachable and I'm very happy with the care my kids are receiving, the programs and activities they have are awesome as well. I will continue to send my children to Macarthy Road childcare and will be recommending them to family and friends that live nearby
