Great Beginnings Marsden Park
Spacious areas designed to inspire
As you open the door to our centre, you will be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our spacious outdoor play area includes a sandpit, bike track and other exciting play equipment for children to learn through play and 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. Being outside 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.
Healthy meals freshly prepared in-house
There is no need to pack lunches and snacks for your child. Healthy, freshly made meals and snacks are created daily by our qualified in-house chef, 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.
High-quality early learning programs
Each new day is an adventure at Great Beginnings Marden Park. Our centre proudly offers a preschool program to ensure your children are supported for their transition to school every step of the way. With a focus on language, literacy, numeracy, social skills and more, our preschool program will help your children become school ready.
Children and educators love to explore the local Marsden Park community with excursions to nearby locations. We are located in a prime location surrounded by small businesses, local cafes, schools and parks. We also invite special guests and community members to the centre based on the children's interests including the fire brigade and local police. We pride ourselves on our in-center events and celebrations, where we show off the staff’s talents, interests and cultural backgrounds to engage children and families in a variety of experiences.
