See where great beginnings start at Great Beginnings Mount Clear. Our early learning and long day care centre offers child care in Mount Clear for families living or commuting through Mount Clear or nearby suburbs Canadian, Mount Helen, Buninyong, Miners Rest and Ballarat East.
Once you step into our long day care centre in Mount Clear, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to learn and explore. Our natural outdoor environment features large yards including two cubby houses, sandpits, vegetable garden, climbing fort, mud pits and more to engage all the senses.
We provide children the time and space for uninterrupted play as they adventure into 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.
Our Vacation Care program offers school-aged children (5 – 12 years) time to unwind and spend time with friends during school holidays. The program provides daily variety, focusing on fun and learning through a mix of indoor and outdoor play.
There’s no need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. We provide healthy, freshly made meals 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.
No two days are ever the same at our child care centre. Your child will have access to a schedule of engaging specialised programs including sport, music and movement programs. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program.
We welcome special guests to the centre based on the children’s interests including dinosaurs, wildlife incursions, hatching program, animal visits and more. Neighbourhood connections support a sense of community and belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places, and environments.
As members of our Great Beginnings community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years.
