See where great beginnings start at Great Beginnings Byford. Our child care and early learning centre is ideally located for families living or commuting through Byford, Darling Downs, Oakford and Whitby. Our centre is in a centrally located adjacent to Marri Grove Primary and close to the Byford town centre.
From the moment you walk through our doors, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are inspired to discover, learn and grow. Your child will enjoy exploring our large outdoor areas which include a sandpit, swings, waterplay area and vegetable garden. The outdoors 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. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists, and designers.
The kitchen is at the centre of everything we do here at Great Beginnings Byford. There is no need to pack lunches, nutritious meals and snacks including dinner are designed daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements including halal. We also offer a take home meal service for the convenience of parents, offering you peace of mind knowing that your child has a freshly cooked meal ready to take home. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices.
