Welcome to Great Beginnings Reservoir. Great Beginnings start here!
Our friendly and energetic team of educator’s here at Great Beginnings Reservoir, create a home away from home for our families, providing a fun and friendship enriched environment that values each child’s uniqueness. We take pride in providing a modern, warm and safe environment for your family. Your child should feel comfortable, happy and inspired in our early learning centre.
We encourage the use of outdoor areas by providing the children with numeracy, literacy, construction, art and messy play in the garden. Whilst also providing the children with lots of gross motor activities and space to be active. These environments build on the children’s being, becoming and belonging.
My name is Lana Ibrahim and I am the Centre Manager at Great Beginnings Reservoir. I have been the Centre Manager for 4 years. Prior to this, I was the Assistant Centre Manager for 2 years and a Room Leader for 2 years. I have been working in the childcare industry since 2010, and have gained a wide range of experience to share with educators, children and families.
I have two daughters aged 7 and 10, and a dog named Jessie.
Alongside my team of educators, we have built this centre from a ‘Working Towards’ status to ‘Meeting’ with four areas receiving the award of ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standards. At the same time, our occupancy has climbed from 40% to 100%. This clearly demonstrates the passion and love that both myself and my team have for not only our job, but our centre and all of the children and families within it. We are a family, and we’d like to welcome you!
Please feel free to phone or email to arrange your tour, and I’d be more than happy to help in any way I can.

Reviews and Testimonials
“As a first time mum and new parent to child care I experienced a lot of concerns and emotions with leaving my child in care for the first time. I would like to share the welcoming and positive experience that I had and continue to have… After the first week my child become unsettled and I came so close to withdrawing him but with words of wisdom from the room staff and the centre director who shared her experience with leaving her own child I continued. My child is now fully settled and happy to attend care. The care and love that the staff have shown to both myself and my child have really made this a happy experience for our family. The smiles and welcome from the staff and centre manager at the start and end of day makes me leave for work a happy mum. Staff take the time to ask questions and seek advice on my child each day. I cannot recommend this centre and its staff highly enough.”
“I would like to thank you for the love, patience and dedication that you have with all the little children in the centre. It is very special to see my son enjoying every day with you! Samuel has been in the centre since he was 7 months old and he will turn 4 soon. You guys are part of his life!! I would like to acknowledge the beautiful energy of all staff, the dedication of Lana to make the centre better every day. Since Lana took the Director role, the centre has changed to a positive 100% in all aspects. I also want to recognized the good work of Hannin with the children, she is a beautiful young woman who enjoys being part of their lives and my child loves her very much. She has a lot of experience, enthusiasm and creativity to make the days amazing for the little ones. I cannot be more thankful with Great Beginnings family, I have recommended the centre to two of my friends that are already enrolled! No doubts they will love you as much we do.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how happy I have been with your centre. From the first day when I brought my twins Eleni and Christian to the centre I immediately felt welcomed. The room set up is fantastic and the programs you offer are very educational and inclusive. Hannin and Cam do an amazing job looking after my children. I am so grateful that I have been lucky enough to find a centre that is nurturing and caring. I especially enjoy receiving the daily reflections, as I feel informed as to what my children are doing and I absolutely love seeing the photos. I cannot thank you and your staff enough for making me feel comfortable to leave my children in your trusting care.”
Thank you all so very much for caring for, teaching and loving my son. You have filled the gaps in parenting when we were off to work. You have given my son so many wonderful tools to equip him to face not only school but life in general! I was so hesitant about child care when our journey started 2 years ago – but oh how wrong I was. Carla, Sandeep, Chantal, Ula, Kate, Renee, Lana, Indi, Apporva, Lucy, Mandeep, Supattra and Justin – to name a few. But my gratitude extend to all those working there that I have failed to mention. You have all been instrumental in shaping the confident, charismatic, smart little boy our son is today – and for that I am forever grateful! We regard your centre and services very highly and will be sure to communicate that to others.
