Meet the Centre Manager

Jacqueline Keverian

What is your name?

Jacqueline Keverian.

How long have you been working in childcare?

I began my career in childcare as a casual while studying my Masters of Teaching for two years. After graduating, I became the room leader of the 0-2 nursery room and ever since have been working my way through the different roles of Assistant Centre Manager and now Centre Manager.

What is your favourite part of working at the centre?

Being able to see and work with the children every single day, and building a team of staff who are motivated and inspired to provide the best quality care and education for the children in our centre.

What qualifications do you hold?

I have a Bachelor of Commerce with a Double Major in Human Resources and Marketing, as well as a Masters of Teaching in Early Years.

What are you most passionate about?

Having the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many children from a young age, and being able to watch them grow and develop over the years.

What are you most proud of at your centre?

The strong team of educators, the incredible natural environments and the warm community feel our centre offers.

What values are most important to you in your team members?

I value educators who share the same passion as me for working with young children and educators who are honest, loyal, kind, caring and loving towards the children and other staff. I believe individuals who are committed, creative, hardworking and passionate are the best possible educators for providing young children an environment where they can explore, learn, grow and develop.

What is your philosophy about educating children?

I believe no two children are the same, and an educational service and educator should be able to cater to each child by following the child’s interest and incorporating this into the learning and environment of the centre.

What makes your team/centre special?

The team at our centre are a young team, however we have over 30 years combined experience. We are a motivated, caring and hardworking team who are committed to providing all children in our care with a safe, healthy, and engaging environment where children can explore and learn through play.

What message would you like to tell parents considering your centre?

We welcome all families to come and have a look at our centre and explore the natural outdoor environments and meet our wonderful team of educators.

Reviews and Testimonials

“I am extremely happy with Great Beginnings Terrey Hills. Both my children attend care here and we adore their educators.

“We are extremely happy with Great Beginnings at Terrey Hills! Our little girl (now 3 years old) has been attending since she was 8 months old, and has progressed from the Babies room on-wards & is now in the 3-5 year olds group. She enjoys her days and is learning so much! The centre has very clean & spacious rooms and fantastic outdoor areas.

The staff are excellent and they provide a very nurturing environment that not only stimulates and amuses the children, but most definitely teaches them to think for themselves and and also initiates school readiness. The children have different teaching themes weekly and events & activities. I like that their days are structured and interesting. The teachers are all lovely and are of a very high standard. They really do put a lot of effort into their work with the children. Thank you very much for all that you do! Lovely menu also .. better than at home sometimes.”

“Great beginnings is where I send my 2 year old son. We are so happy with the centre. There have been a lot of upgrades recently and the centre is always trying to improve things. More importantly to us as parents, is how amazing the staff are. Our little boy is quite shy but is completely settled at Great Beginnings. As a teacher myself, the staff and the way they relate and treat the children is the most important thing to me. There is a lovely community atmosphere and a desire to ensure the children are loved and cared for in the best way possible. We are very thankful to have out child at Great Beginnings.”

She is now in her final year at Great Beginnings before starting Kindergarten. We have always been delighted by the staffs professionalism and their genuine desire to teach and care for children. The centre offers a large variety of learning activities involving sports, visits from Police – Fire department – petting zoo etc. The centre also encourages exposure to other cultures and celebrations. I have never had any concerns leaving my daughter at Great Beginnings as I know she is in excellent care!”
