About Great Beginnings Kariong

Our service is open from 6.30am – 6pm Monday to Friday. We have our cook Lola who prepares all the meals on site and who is an integral part of the children’s day. We also provide nappies, wipes and cot linen for all children under 2 years.

As we are a large service we are fortunate enough to have a large number of highly qualified educators. Each day we have 4 University qualified teachers and 4 Diploma (or working towards diploma) qualified educators who all drive the educational program. Every educator holds a recognised early childhood qualification or is currently undertaking study in a recognised course. This has a huge impact on being able to provide quality learning experiences for children and also in creating a focused and passionate team of educators who are working towards a shared goal of the rights of every child to have access to quality early childhood learning

Reviews for Great Beginnings Kariong

Rachelle Pereira5 months ago

Great Beginnings has been the best decision, my 3 year old has been going for about 7 months and I’m so glad I chose this centre. The rooms and playground is what initially caught my attention, my son loves being outdoors and the spaces they have created are amazing. The food is great, the programs and attention to detail with communication about what’s going on to parents and about what they doing in each room is fantastic. I love being at work and getting a picture of my son, getting updated on what he’s eating for lunch and what the kids have done that day, not only is it so nice to know what they’re doing, but it's been great to be able to engage in conversations with him at the end of the day. But what makes this centre truly amazing is the staff, they have completely exceeded all my expectations, from assisting me with difficult drop offs, to accommodating his needs to make him feel more comfortable. They’ve consistently given me great updates even down to small details in the day, with so many kids to keep track of this is impressive. Lincoln is pretty shy but the efforts from staff are clear by the bonds he has formed with all them, Laura, Karlee, Brittney, Jemma & Oliva have been wonderful, I can’t speak more highly of them all. Amanda the director is amazing, she’s super friendly and always willing to answer any questions I have and somehow knows all the kids by name! Covid has made things difficult but they have followed all the health procedures and checks, which made us feel a lot more comfortable going back to care after lockdowns. I can't recommend the centre more highly. I look forward to my youngest starting there next year, creating the same bonds and having a blast.
