Every child is unique and we provide a warm, safe and learning environment tailored to their individual needs. Our qualified staff and management team work hard to build a strong partnership with parents and in preparing your child for school and the very best start in life.

Not only do we provide security, love and warmth, but also a place of fun, laughter and learning for your child in their early years. “Learning” is a life long aspect that starts from very early in life.

Our seven spacious learning rooms that are based on various ages, allow children to explore and develop according to their age and development. Our large spate dining rooms allows children to experience a “sense of home and belonging” as they are able to enjoy eating their freshly cooked meals prepared by our qualified chef in a relaxing “home like environment”. Our outdoor play area is an extension of the indoor environment, with lots of space for children to explore and discover the natural environment.

We believe both themes of “home” and “learning” are what helps create a positive, firm foundation and assists children in gaining the confidence to learn in a happy, fun and positive learning environment.

Our centre has highly qualified educators with extensive experience and specialized skills. We aim for our centre to be unique. All our educators have both training and experience in the child care profession. For further details on the qualifications of our educators, please see our Director. We value and support further training and development to ensure we are meeting current regulations and practices.

 

Preschool Program

Our Preschool program is taught by a Bachelor qualified Early Childhood Teacher and qualified educators who offer a range of programs and learning skills to support your child’s transition to school.

All Early Childhood settings follow the National Early Years Framework and work very closely on your child’s interests and strengths to encourage a rewarding year ahead. We regard our Preschool program to be one of high quality where your child’s best interests are considered to create a healthy and enjoyable educational experience.

Tamara Scotti

Hi, my name is Tamara Scotti and welcome to Great Beginnings Orange. I have been working in early education for 15 years. One of my favourite parts of working in our centre is getting to know the children and their families.

I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. The values that are most important to me within my team members are, fulfilling the emotional and developmental needs of the children to ensure they create meaningful relationships. Our team believe in the importance of early education and the impact it has on a child’s development.

Fun fact: One of my hobbies is face painting and doing special effects make up for a Halloween amusement park.
