I have been a member of Bayswater childcare since 2009. Over this time I have had a number of roles, responsibilities and have seen many different children and families that have all left an imprint here at Great Beginnings Bayswater.
I began my early learning journey in the baby room as an assistant and now the Centre Manager of Great Beginnings Bayswater. During this time I completed my Certificate III Children’s Services (Early Childhood Education and Care) and then my Diploma in Children’s Services (Early Childhood Education and Care). I am also currently studying my Certificate IIII in Leadership and Management.
As an early learning educator, I believe that every child learns differently, can bring something unique into the centre environment and can be supported. By creating activities within our curriculum which allow the children to learn through play, investigate on their own and also have moments of intentional teaching. This creates relationships not only with them but with their families and can create new pathways which help guide children in any avenue possible that they wish to lead, giving them the confidence that they can achieve anything and be who they wish to be.

Reviews and Testimonials
“Great centre, staff are really devoted to the kids and my little toddler loves going there.”
“My daughter has been attending …Bayswater for 2 years. Her development has been an amazing progression and I couldn’t be happier with the centre. The staff are all really nice and helpful and never have a problem with my (many many) questions. They are also fantastic with their food as my daughter is lactose intolerant and has allergies and they cater for her so well she usually has 3 lunches!”
“My two children have been attending …Bayswater now for almost a year, 3 days a week. Prior to that my son attended one day a week for over a year. They have thrived at the centre and love the staff, activities, the food and the interaction with the other children. The centre staff are very friendly, it is evident they love all the children and make us feel like part of a family. I especially like that the staffing is kept consistent with a very small staff turnover. Highly recommended!”
“Both my daughters attend… My first daughter started when she was 10 months old and is now 3.5 years. The same carers that looked after her as a baby are now looking after my 7 month old. To have the same staff retained for so many years across all the rooms is amazing. All the staff seem so happy to be there and all go out of their way to help my daughters settle in and make sure they aren’t upset. They do so many activities for their development and my daughter who is very active is stimulated and challenged in a positive way. She loves the kinda dance program, cooking, playing outside and the pet guinea pigs. For the same reason the staff are retained so are the children and my daughter has made beautiful friendships over the years and looks forward to seeing her friends in the kindy room. Everything is always so clean and the menu always so healthy. In three years I can honestly say I have nothing bad to say…”
“…Bayswater has made my return to work a lot easier than I had imagined. With the help and support of all the friendly staff, I know each day my daughter is well cared for. She has attended daycare since she was 4 months old on a full-time basis. She has grown so much and achieved more than I expected by a 2 Year old. I always have found the centre to be a clean and friendly environment. If you have any concerns about sending your child to daycare, then the staff… can help in so many ways and make the journey a lot easier.”
