Childcare Centre Manager - Great Beginnings Bunbury

“I love working at Great Beginnings because of the family connections that we have. I love getting to know the families that attend our centre.”

I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2005 and hold a Diploma in of Children’s Services.

I have always had a special connection to children. I started babysitting when I was a teenager and I have always known that I needed to be with little people. I knew that this would be my career, so I studied to be an educator.

All childcare centres, including our centre, use the foundation of play-based learning to guide our experiences every day. With access to a range of age-appropriate learning resources, trained educators, and new experiences among friends, we set children up to thrive in an environment that is dedicated to learning. I am most proud of our indoor environments. I feel we cater to the children’s interests and needs. We are a well-resourced centre that can offer a variety of activities to explore and investigate.

We have a very dedicated, motivated, and special staff. They are very passionate and love spending time with your children to educate them. Many educators have been here for over 3 years. It’s the sort of centre where everyone knows all the children, no matter which room they are in. We are such a close-knit team it feels like one big family. The team are extremely enthusiastic about creating a child care centre that is truly a home away from home, where all the members are happy to be part of a great experience.

Our team understands just how important your children are to you and we ensure we take our responsibilities seriously. Greenwood Early Education Centres has extensive policy and procedures in place to assist our team in protecting children in our care. You can read more about our commitment to safety here.

I love working at Great Beginnings because of the family connections that we have. I love getting to know the families that attend our centre so we can better cater to their needs and the needs of their children with the personal connection and special bond, we can offer a more tailored education and support experience. We also ensure we support our new families from the start, we encourage a smooth, gentle start at our centre. We take the time to get to know your child through orientation stay and plays. We start from the first meeting to build the bonds with your family.

We have a state-of-the-art programming system that allows you to connect to the centre and program via Xplor. We have an amazing centre cook on site every day preparing Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea. All meals are prepared fresh on the day and we have a 4-week rotating menu.

We invite you and your family to come in and have a look at our environments and meet our friendly Educators. We look forward to meeting you.
