Niki Kelly

My name is Niki and I have been working in the Early Childhood Industry for 6 years. I have a Certificate III and Diploma in Children’s Services, and am currently completing my Bachelor of Early Childhood Teaching.

I am passionate about educating children after my own Dad who returned, after more than 20 years, to University to become a teacher. After listening to happy, inspiring stories every day, what better industry to want to be a part of! I truly believe that a team of educators should want to inspire one another, and that is what I believe the culture of Great Beginnings Terrey Hills reflects. Our centre is unique in its layout; an old Primary School Campus in the heart of nature and bushland!

“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.”

“Our daughter has attended Great Beginnings Terrey Hills since she was 8 months old. 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!”
