Great Beginnings Secret Harbour

See where great beginnings start at Great Beginnings Secret Harbour. Our child care and early education centre in nestled in Secret Harbour and is ideally located for families in Secret Harbour, Baldivis, Golden Bay, Karnup and Lakelands.

Our centre is proud to have received Exceeding the National Quality Standard. The National Quality Standard encompasses the seven key quality areas that are important outcomes for children’s learning and development.

When entering our long day care centre, you will be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to discover, learn and grow. Our natural all-weather play areas feature real grass, cubby houses and water play areas for your child to engage with while learning through play to 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 areas 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 centre kitchen is at the centre of all we do. There’s no need to pack lunch or snacks for your child. Nutritious meals and snacks created daily by our qualified in-house chef.

We offer coffee and fresh fruit to our families during drop off to save them time in the mornings. Your child will have access to a rotating schedule of specialised programs, including a dance program to further develop fundamental skills. Educators and children explore our local Secret Harbour community with excursions to the nearby park and shopping centre. We also welcome special guests and community members to the centre based on the children's interests.

Our sustainability program teaches children a sense of responsibility and connection to their world. We implement a sustainability program within the service which enables us to ensure we are an environmentally conscious service and educating children on environmentally conscious behaviours. Our sustainability program involves regular visits to the community garden located within the Secret Harbour Shopping Centre, which is located opposite the centre. We also participate in multiple community environmental initiatives to help create a more sustainable planet. Our Family Support Team are happy to chat through your child care needs.
