Great Beginnings Mill Park
Spacious areas designed to inspire
From the moment you step into our Mill Park child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our adventure-filled playgrounds feature a slide, cubby house, sandpit, vegetable gardens, and a variety of age-appropriate learning resources to engage all the senses. Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play as they explore the outdoors to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing.
Our indoor spaces invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children wonder, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Our experienced educators plan play-based learning experiences around children’s interests and learning
Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house
You don't have to worry about preparing snacks or lunches. Nutritious meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
No two days that are the same at our child care centre. Your child will have access to a schedule of engaging specialised programs including sport, bush kinder, cooking classes, and a music and movement program. Our centre proudly offers a kindergarten program delivered by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher to ensure your children are supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, our kindergarten program will help your children become school ready .
Our children and educators venture out on regular excursions and walks in our local community including the nearby basketball courts, library, shops, parks and more. We regularly present educational children’s shows and welcome special community guests to our child care centre to extend on the children’s learning.
