Great Beginnings Bunbury

See where great beginnings start at Great Beginnings Bunbury. Our purpose-built child care and early learning centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Bunbury, Carey Park, Dalyellup, South Bunbury, Usher and Withers.

As you walk into our Bunbury child care centre you’ll be wrapped up in a world where children are inspired to explore, learn and develop. Our natural outdoor areas include a sandpit and slide 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. Families are always welcome to share their ideas and be involved with activities at the centre and their child’s learning.

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. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.

Our Centre offers a well-planned Outside School Hours Care program catering for school-aged children (5 to 12-years old). Our Before and After School Care programs have various activities that focus on fun and learning! With our Vacation Care program, your child will have endless amounts of fun with a mix of in-centre activities, indoor and outdoor play and visits to the community, including the movies, laser tag and ten pin bowling.  

The kitchen is at the epicentre of everything we do at our Bunbury child care centre. There is no need to worry about packing lunches or snacks. Healthy 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.

Children and educators also love to venture out into our local community with excursions to nearby schools and parks to promote connection with nature and active participation in the broader community.

We offer long day care hours as well as Before and After School care and a Vacation Care Program for children aged 6-12 years. Our vacation care programs have a variety of activities with a focus on fun and learning. Your child will have endless amounts of fun with a mix of in-centre activities, indoor and outdoor play, and visits to the community.
