About Great Beginnings Pakenham

   5 ratings more

Welcome to Great Beginnings Pakenham.

Our purpose built childcare and early education centre operates between 6.30am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday. Childhood is a time like no other, it’s when children learn through exploration, experimentation and that of their role models. We, as early childcare educators, are there to encourage children to learn through their environment and play. We encourage children to express their emotions, thoughts and ideas and allow children to be themselves in a comfortable and secure setting.

All staff are fully qualified or are currently studying their Certificate III in Children Services. We run a fully funded Kindergarten program run by a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education teacher and offer various incursions throughout the year. We take pride in providing a modern, warm and safe environment for your family. Your child should feel comfortable, happy and inspired in our early learning centre.

We would love to welcome you to Great Beginnings Pakenham.

Great school! Educators are amazing! I find that Tamia has developed so well and only continues to grow with the support and knowledge of her educators, she has made lots of friends and continues to grow so much confidence... Dantè is also developing and learning new things everyday! I appreciate the encouragement and support he receives from his makes me feel at piece to know that they are getting the Best care when I'm not around... when I decided to study and go for my dreams, I found it hard to leave both my babies in the care of others but I feel like it's been the best choice I ever made for both myself and the kiddies. I also love it that we now receive notification and pictures about my babies day. It always brightens my day to see how their day has been and what new things they have learnt. At the end of the day as long as my children are happy I am happy and that's all I can ask for. Thanku so much to all the staff! I really appreciate the love and support u guys provide for my babies and I'm so impressed with the daily updates and communication! Awesome job guys! 😘
I returned to work when my son was 5 months old, and as a first time mum, this centre has been a life saver for me. My son is now almost 3, and the staff continue to be open and honest, they give me continuous feed back, they encourage family interaction with the centre and provide after hours opportunities for us all to get to know each other. They never hesitate to accommodate certain requests when it comes to child routine, or behaviours. I simply love them! But more importantly i love how much my son enjoys his time there. He gains so many irreplaceable attributes by spending time at this centre. Would recommend time and time again!
