Great Beginnings Gymea

See where great beginnings start at Great Beginnings Gymea. Our long day care and early learning centre provides child care in Gymea in a boutique, homely setting that is perfect for families living or commuting through Miranda, Kirrawee, Sylvania, Caringbah and Kareela. Our entry is via Sylvania Road and we’re conveniently located right next to the bus station on Sylvania Road opposite Omaru Avenue.

As part of our sustainability philosophy embedded at our Gymea child care centre we are lucky to have animals we care for. These include two birds named Blue and Snow who are cared for by the children and educators in our Toddler Room. The children learn to care for them as part of their daily routines.

As soon as you step into our child care centre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our adventure-filled playgrounds which feature large yards including sandpits, vegetable garden, climbing fort and play equipment to engage all the senses. 

All children have access to our lovely vegetable garden, there they learn how to nurture the environment and we can have conversations about healthy lifestyles. We also have worm farm they also learn to care for in their day to day activities, understanding the benefits of using food scraps as composting and further discussions around the environment.

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 goals.

You don’t need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. Nutritious meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements including halal meal options. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.

No two days are the same at our child care centre. Your child will have access to a schedule of engaging specialised programs including music and movement program to develop fundamental skills. For an additional cost we also offer a sport and fitness program. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.

Educators and children venture out on excursions to our local community visiting nearby parks like Miranda Park and shops. We regularly welcome community members to the centre to extend on the children’s learning including wildlife experiences, science workshops, magic shows and more. Neighbourhood connections support a sense of community and belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places, and environments.

As members of our Great Beginnings community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
