Welcome to Great Beginnings Ellenbrook.
Great Beginnings means providing meaningful and engaging learning environments and activities for children and families. I believe all children should feel free to be themselves and we will promote this at the service by knowing the children and the things they like to do as individuals.
- Our centre is open from 6.30am – 6:30pm, Monday to Friday
- Kindyhub – a parent communication app that connects families with their children’s progression, development and daily learning
- A Kindy readiness program with an (ECT) early childhood teacher
- Nutritional meals throughout the day – breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack prepared by our in-house cook.
- Qualified and trained Educators that are passionate about early childhood education and care
Our indoor and outdoor set-ups encourage the children to explore and wonder about their environment, learning about new things and extending on their curiosity within their environment demonstrating a sense of Being, Belonging and Becoming.
I have a Certificate 3 in Children’s services, and a Diploma in Children’s Services (Education and Care). I have been in the Early Learning sector since 2009. I have worked for private centres, non for profit centres and Great Beginnings within the Perth metro area.
I am the Centre Manager of Great Beginnings Ellenbrook, I was the Assistant Centre Manager at Great Beginnings Aveley and moved over to further my career and become a Centre Manager. I moved into Ellenbrook in 2015 when my newly built home had been completed. I have two children a little boy (11) and a little girl (9).
I aim to provide a safe, loving, respected and fun environment for the children in our care at Great Beginnings Ellenbrook.
Our centre in continuously developing, we are working hard to ensure that all of our environments are to the highest of standards. All our children are made to feel happy, secure and have a strong sense of belonging. I believe in working in partnership with the families to guide and implement learning outcomes for their children. Using their knowledge, we are able to develop programs (using Kindy hub) which then respond to all the children’s interest, providing a basis for meaningful learning created through play and Roll modelling, by providing an environment that promotes mutual respect with the children and families, and sharing learning experiences, being creative and working with our community.
Please feel free to come into our centre at any time between the hours of 6.30am – 6.30pm to speak to myself or my team, to have a centre tour and let your child stay for a play. We look forward to meeting you.

Reviews and Testimonials
“My son goes to after school care 4 days a week. He is very happy with the care he receives as are we. Highly recommend.”
“My daughter has been coming… for the past 18 months and is so excited on the days she comes and gets sad on the days she doesnt come. She loves the staff and even wants them to come to our place for a play. Over the past 18 months Tahnee has become so much more sociable and her confidence has grown so much. I find all the staff very helpful and friendly.”
“My daughter has been coming…now for about eight months and she has come right out of her shell. beforehand, she was very quiet and shy, and was having trouble with speech. Her speech and communication has really improved, as well as her social and emotional skills as well. She has great relationships with all of the staff, she is very settled and happy within herself.She enjoys the activities and routines, and it has prepared her wonderfully for school.”
“My 2 boys have been going… for nearly a year now and they have such a great bond with all the girls here. They even talk about them at home and get so excited to go back everyday. Kelly-Ann is so very helpful if you have any issues or questions and she is very eager to help in any way she can. I have always found the girls here very friendly and approachable, and my boys always have heaps of fun.”
“My first impression… was of a bright, well equipped centre. Staff were open and friendly towards myself and my child. The children already attending the centre appeared happy and settled. I was particularly happy with the well shaded outdoor area and the centre’s sun policy. The variety of food offered on the menu is nutritious and appealing to young children. My child loves saying hello and goodbye to the guinea pigs in the foyer.”
“…has been a extremely pleasant and welcoming organisation. My son has so many fond memories of the centre and the staff themselves. As a parent I have been very grateful to all staff at the… centre for providing such a great and a high quality service. It has been such an easy transition from being a client/customer to an actual staff member…”
