About Us

Welcome to Great Beginnings Secret Harbour.


Our custom designed Long Day Care and education centre caters for 92 children per day. We are open between 6.30am and 6.30pm and cater for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years.

We believe children learn through free exploration and that childhood is about having fun, as well as learning. In addition to our exciting play based curriculum, we have beautiful natural outdoor play spaces with real grass, cubby houses, a bamboo forest and water play areas.

Our qualified and caring educators are integral to the care, enjoyment and safety of the children at the center. In addition to this, we have an Early Childhood Teacher for our Kindergarten program ready to help your children prepare for school.

We look forward to meeting you and your family.


Great Beginnings Secret Harbour has proudly received an Exceeding rating under the National Quality Standards!

Meet the Centre Manager

Meet the Centre Manager – Madi Bryan

Hi! My name is Madi and I am the Centre Manager at Great Beginnings Secret Harbour. I have been in the Early Childhood industry for 9+ years and hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. I am extremely passionate about providing children with a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment in which allows them to explore and learn through play.

The amazing team at Great Beginnings Secret Harbour, all share a common goal of providing a high quality of care and education for all children through nurturing and trusting relationships and meaningful, stimulating and exciting learning experiences for children. It is through our relationships with both children and their families, in which we ensure our learning and care is tailored to each individual child.

In a team of educators, I believe the most important values are passion and dedication. Any educator who is passionate and dedicated will ensure all that they do, is in the best interest of all children at all times!

Our purpose-built centre, with an amazing outdoor environment, is unique and extremely well resourced and provides constant opportunity for children to engage with some of the most beautiful aspects of our world – nature! We also have an amazing food coordinator, who provides children with freshly prepared and highly nutritional meals daily.

We invite you to come and take a tour of our wonderful service and discuss your individual care needs.

Reviews and Testimonials

“I was so hesitant at first to put my 1 year old son into day care when I returned to work this year. I am so pleased that I found Great Beginnings! The centre is lovely and bright, with a fantastic outdoor play area. The staff are all amazing, they have so much time for each child and take the time to get to know the families really well. I am now happy to drop my son off every day as I know he will be so well cared for and will have a fun filled and engaging day. Couldn’t recommend this centre more! Thank you to all of the team at Great Beginnings SH.”

“Great Beginnings in Secret Harbour is a fantastic day care centre. My daughter attended the centre from when it first opened until May this year. We only moved her because we moved house to a different area. The staff and Management were extremely friendly and provided us with excellent care. The daily updates through KindyHub were fantastic and it was always nice to see what my child was up to during the day. I can not recommend the centre highly enough and if I could provide more then 5 stars I would. Everyone always went above and beyond. Fantastic day care for all ages.”

“My son has attended this centre since it opened, it is very welcoming and offers a clean and well resourced environment. I often work away and really enjoy receiving daily updates and photos of my son via the kindyhub app.”

“I can’t recommend Great Beginnings Secret Harbour highly enough. My daughter has been going since January and the staff helped her transition and settle in very well. I love how the parents are kept up to date with the child’s day with pictures and the daily journals on Kindyhub. The educators have a lot of time and care for the children and there is a lovely relaxed atmosphere throughout the centre.”

“Great Beginnings Secret Harbour is a “home away from home” for my daughter, with state of the art facilities, a naturescape garden, cubby house and friendly staff who genuinely care about the children’s education and well being.”

– Baz


“My daughter has been through 3 daycares due to moving for my work commitments and she isn’t even 2 yet. I was hesitant with a new centre at first, that certainly changed after her very first day at Great Beginnings Secret Harbour. She has loved it from the get go and I have no doubts leaving her in the care of the capable staff at the centre. They have all done an amazing job and I am so glad I picked the centre as it will be her last until school. A massive thank you to all of the staff, you are fantastic.”

“Great Beginnings is more than a day care centre it’s a home from home – friendly, caring and safe place for children. As a grandparent living across the other side of the world I was particularly impressed with the unique ‘daily diary’ of events and personal care my precious grandson was receiving. It’s wonderful to follow his progress and fun educational little journey. I have been fortunate enough to visit the centre, for real whilst on holiday, the lovely, kind, nurturing staff, complimented the comfortable vibrant quality environment and confirmed the excellent standard of care he received. Highly recommend Great Beginnings!”
