About

Welcome to Great Beginnings Reservoir!

Great Beginnings start here.

Our friendly and energetic team of educator’s here at Great Beginnings Reservoir, create a home away from home for our families, providing a fun and friendship enriched environment that values each child’s uniqueness. 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 encourage the use of outdoor areas by providing the children with numeracy, literacy, construction, art and messy play in the garden. Whilst also providing the children with lots of gross motor activities and space to be active. These environments build on the children’s being, becoming and belonging.

I couldn't be happier with my experience with Great Beginnings Reservoir. My daughter attended the nursery and then went full time in pre toddler. I felt so bad for sending her 5 days a week, but she loves going. The educators are so kind and caring and always have smiles on their faces and provide amazing care for her. The activities and programs they do are fantastic and there is always something new and exciting to look forward to. The updates on the app are so cute and informative. Communicating with the centre is quick and easy and Lana is great! We are moving interstate and I'm so sad to have to take my daughter out of such an amazing centre.

Lana has been amazing the past 2 years I have attended. It’s a shame I had to move as we moved house 30 mins away. I miss this place already! Only been a week away. During Covid they always kept us up to date makes you feel safe . My daughter MM has been in nursery to pre kinder rooms. She still asks if she can go back misses her teachers. Every week their is something going on for the kids to learn about. they use xplor app and keep it updated for everything. Heaps of photos everyday bonus! Manjit got my daughter to wear her glasses as we struggled too. Carla and Sonia help my daughter come out of her shell, build her confidence and started playing with all the kids. I would say choose this place over any reservoir childcare centre . I visited a few but knew this one was the one once I meet Tessa within minutes. Thank you GBR Jess M

Change is the only constant in life and it's time for daughter to move to a new locality and hence move to a new Child Care but we as parents would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the GB team. Starting with Lana, from her warm center tour to answering our every single inquiry with professionalism and care. It is because of her fantastic tour we felt that this is the right place for our daughter to begin her early childhood education. Renee has always been accommodating and clear in her communication, especially in the last couple of months when we needed extra days, you and Renee tried their level best to accommodate us, this shows GB team's commitment to work and the care for the kids and families. We would also like to say thank to Tessa, in the early days it was challenging for our daughter and us to adjust to this new environment, but she was amazing in communicating and addressing our inquiries (if we had any). Since she has spent more time in the Panda room, we as parents are pleased with the learning framework, the educator’s involvement, and the care the entire team has demonstrated. The activities helped her to achieve her developmental milestones. The daily activity updates and monthly developmental reports helped us to understand how educators are working closely with every child to ensure they get the attention they need. Lastly, we would like to extend our heartiest Thankyou to Carla, Evy, Hyfa, Khadija, and our daughter's favorite educator Sonia. (Our daughter has a special bond with Sonia, she talks about her all day and even mimics and pretends to play as her). In a nut shell thankyou GB team, its been an amazing experience for us !!

The team at GB Reservoir are attentive, proactive and caring towards the students and their parents. The educators’ contribution towards the development of the children is of high excellence and the support staff especially the center Manager Lana is welcoming, informative and always responsive. GB used Xplor which gives me the peace of mind that my children are cared for and I can see live updates and photos. I send both my children here and from Day 1 have always felt comfortable doing so.

Absolutely wonderful centre. The staff genuinely care for the children. Very responsive to any issues. They have a great app to so you can keep track of your baby's naps, feeds etc during the day and of course photos! Highly recommend.
