Great Beginnings Pakenham
Every room is provided with fresh fruit daily and seasonal fruit is always in the front foyer for children to take on their way out also to hold off hungry bellies before dinner. 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 rotating schedule of engaging specialised programs including music and movement, Auslan language and Bush Kinder. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
We welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests. Visits from the community include local police, fire brigade, responsible pet ownership and more. Community connections support a sense of 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.
