Reviews and Testimonials

See what our parents have to say about our centre:

My 4yo son enjoys going to GB Bentley. The educators are friendly and enthusiasm in their way of teaching and guiding to the children. In addition, they are put their best effort to contribute their experiences and fun to the children. When I pick up my son everyday, he is really really happily to have fun and joy with his peers and smiling to tell me about his day in childcare. I highly recommend the GB Bentley care for any age.”

My 2yo daughter thoroughly enjoys going to GB Bentley. I cannot single out one particular staff member as they are all very loving, attentive to my child’s needs and have helped her grow and reach her milestones beyond our expectations. They are like family and always go the extra mile in whatever is asked of them. The best part is that get down on the kids level and see the world through their eyes whilst guiding them on a journey of fun, learning and experiences. I highly recommend the GB Bentley care centre for any age (even my 10yo)…”

I have two girls (2.5 and 4) at the centre and they love it and the staff. I would highly recommend Great Beginnings Bentley to friends and family. Janine, the centre director is extremely helpful and answers all my questions and calms my nerves about leaving my girls in childcare. I no longer have any worries about leaving my girls while I go back to work. I know they have a great time and run up to me smiling when I pick them up to tell me about their day…”
