As a first time mum you never know what to expect and find it so difficult to return work and find the right centre for your little one. The staff at Great Beginnings have made this hard transition so easy. There app is so easy to use and being sent photos of my daughter is an added bonus. The centre is filled with the most caring educators. My Daughter has Hip dysplasia and the staff have been amazing with her being in the brace for such long periods of the day and helping me stick to her activities to assist with her treatment. Keep up the great work !

Our son attended Great Beginnings Mt Clear for a number of years and when our second son was born we decided to place him at the centre from 6 months too. Could not recommend this centre and the staff higher! Our boys absolutely loved attending, we recieved regular updates on what they were doing and they always brought home lots of artwork they made. When we asked them what the best part of their day was it was always about an activity they completed at the centre. We always felt listen to by the staff and truely believe they all had our boys best interests at heart. Our boys have since aged out care but we honestly recommend this centre to all.

All of the staff at this centre have been so lovely, accommodating, understanding and helpful since we started here 6 months ago. The communication is excellent, responses to emails / calls is prompt, we get daily updates on the app they use about what our little one is up to, there is a lot of variation in the activities they do, lots of outside play, and a good, balanced menu. Very pleased to have moved to this centre!

Originally I toured this centre because it was on my way to work. Now I have to go out of my way to send my son here but I wouldn’t have it any other way! From the Centre Manager to the Educators, everyone who works here is caring, compassionate and friendly. My son is well looked after, happy and I can trust that every day he is with people who treat him like family. So lucky to have found Great Beginnings Mt Clear ❤️

When we first started they were overcharging me! Then when we had time off over the holidays and wanted to enroll again and enroll new child they were trying to charge hundreds because childs CS wasn't approved yet knowing full well it would be back dated.. For a sole parent this wasn't possible to fork out so much and no they don't give back the money when they are back dated. They wouldn't allow child to start til hundreds were paid so we told themh to stick it and we will find a more compassionate centre knowing full well other centres don't do this! Told me the day before I was due to restart Tafe to better our lives. Honestly there are better more understanding compassionate centres out there. Also they lied to me when they put the wrong sunscreen on my child and tried to tell me he had allergies knowing full well it was not his sunscreen they applied and it was allergy from sunscreen I also wasn't called about it when his face went bright red and rashy from it. He ended up with major rash and miserable. Honesty would have been nice and a phone call! Also lots of things they say their program they do not do.. Never went to bush kinder the whole time he was there even though weather was great.
