Centre Highlights

Spacious Learning Environments

Our purpose-built, modern child care centre in Kelso has been designed to be a home away from home for our children and families. The centre offers learning environments that have been designed to nurture and encourage exploration and curiosity.

Each of our learning spaces flow onto a beautiful, resource rich outdoor space that encourages endless opportunities to play. These environments feature a variety of age-appropriate resources, so children can run, skip and play in the great outdoors.   

Dedicated team of educators and teachers
Our team of educators and teachers are the heart of our Kelso early learning centre. We know each child has unique talents and interests. Our experienced team are committed to helping ensure every child becomes a confident, happy and resilient learner. 
High-quality play-based early learning

Play is essential to every child's learning and development. It enables children to make decisions, learn, take risks, and have fun. Our Kelso child care centre offers engaging and fun play-based learning activities that are in line with national standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is designed to engage your child’s interests - allowing them to experience each day in a new way, while supporting their learning in the lead-up to school. 

Our Early Learning Curriculum also provides children with:

  • Real Life experiences: Children participate in fun and exciting experiences such as woodworking, harvesting the veggie garden, caring for our worm farm and basic cooking skills.
  • Sustainability Program: Each age group participates in a sustainability project that help children embed sustainable practices into everyday life. Children learn about recycling, conserving water, growing food, and the importance of looking after and protecting our planet.  
  • Community engagement: our team are committed to connecting with local services including Kelso State School to foster and provide enhanced learning experiences for the children.  
Delicious and healthy meals freshly prepared on site

We provide children with nutrient-rich, fresh and seasonal whole foods. These meals are made fresh on site by our Centre cook. For variety, our menu rotates every four weeks, with our cook catering to the unique dietary requirements of every child. Each week, our cook includes foods from difference cultures.

Here at Great Beginnings Kelso, we believe that by encouraging active participation in food preparation, such as growing & harvesting the fruit and vegetables, preparing, and helping cook the meal, children learn to appreciate and understand the importance of healthy eating.  

For added convenience, we also offer a community pantry and take-home meals for help support our families.
