Welcome to Great Beginnings Quinns Rocks.
Our centre is open from 6:30am – 6:00pm, 5 days per week and we offer nutritious meals and an exceptional Preschool program.
The families that walk through our doors each and every day are part of our family. We are a close community within our service and pride ourselves on the relationship we have with our families. Our Educators are hard-working and enjoy having lots of fun with each bundle of joy that arrives at our service. We hold our values very high and strive to achieve the very best we can out of each day. The most important part is that everyone has a sense of belonging and feels safe and secure.
All of our educators are over 18 years old and hold either a Certificate 3 or Diploma in Children’s Services. We think it is important to prepare children so they are ready for school and actively engage with local schools by collecting children directly from their class rooms. We drop off and pick up children from 7 local schools on a daily basis using our buses who are fully serviced and have regular safety inspections. All drivers have full licences.
We have a large, well-resourced centre with lots of space to learn and play. Our large outdoor play areas allow for a great opportunity to learn and explore our environment. The most important part is that each day children are able to have the experience of being, belonging and becoming to a wonderful family like environment. Each child is an individual and they are celebrated for this.
We run a martial arts program to promote positive behaviour, interactions and wellness which is run by one of our educators who is a fully qualified martial arts instructor and competes professional for Australia. Our centre also hosts a sports class incursion provided by a fully qualified sports teacher who brings an engaging sports session into our centre for all children each week.
Our OSHC program consists or a range of afternoon excursions to local community places such as libraries and parks. During school holidays we run an action packed vacation care program consisting of exciting, innovative and unique excursions including all food so no hidden costs.

I believe that we are not here to determine what or how children learn but to simply be the vessels to guide this learning through exploration, discovery and reflection. We are here to be kind, patient, compassionate, understanding and supportive of the children in our care and to guide their educational journey without prejudice or pre-determined ideas. We must be flexible and move where their child’s mind takes us and listening to their voice as it is the only one that really matters.

Reviews and Testimonials
“The best daycare in Quinn’s Rocks. Our little daughter loves going there. The staff are professional and helpful. We enjoy daily email reports on our daughter activities and successes. The reports are very visual and informative. Our daughter’s confidence has increased. She also has a lot of friends. Often she says to me on the way home: “I had a great day mummy! I love my daycare! My teachers are so nice!” She especially likes her teachers… If you are looking for a great place for your child to learn and have fun, this is the one!”
“My 18 month old daughter is happy to be dropped off at daycare… The staff are friendly and the centre always seems clean. It is also a nice large centre with a lovely outdoor area with trees.”
“I simply love this childcare. My daughter is so happy when she comes back home and is so excited when we drop her off. The baby’s room is clean, big and bright. Wendy and Steph are amazing and they do a lot of activities and educational play.”
