Great Beginnings is truly a second home for our kids. The warmth and care we receive from every educator really makes the experience feel like we're with family. They have nurtured our two children who absolutely love going there and love their educators. The biggest plus for me is using the app where we receive daily updates and photos. We can check what the kids have eaten, how much sleep they had and when, and when they have had a nappy change! We compared childcare centres in the area and are so thankful we chose Great Beginnings! We will be moving houses soon and even though it will be further away, we will still be sending our kids there.

The Great Beginnings Notting Hill Team has provided exceptional care to our two kids for the past few years. We have compared and visited multiple childcare centres around the area and this centre stands out with all our expectations met. - New facilities - Childcare workers providing insightful daily updates - Friendly staff who engage with all parents. - Perfect staff to child ratio - Phone apps to communicate, photos, live feeds, newsletter and social gatherings - Amazing set food menu - Easy parking and pickups. Definitely worth a visit to see first hand on what the centre has to offer.

We have been a Great Beginnings Notting Hill family since the center opened in 2017 and they have taken care of all three of my children. There are other centers closer to home but I wouldn’t send my children anywhere else! My husband and I love seeing all the things our children learn every single day under the care of the amazing team here. They go above and beyond to ensure kids are safe, happy, constantly engaged, and learning. Each room is equipped with stimulating age-appropriate activities and the facilities are clean and well maintained. Soula, the center manager and who really is the heart of the centre, genuinely cares about the children and takes the time to not only get to know them but our family too. My two youngest started when they were 12 months old, the team supported their transition into childcare and made my return to work an easy stress-free experience knowing that they are in the best of hands. My older two children are now in primary school but they still love to come into the center at pick up (when we are allowed inside) to say hi to the staff. I have nothing but praises and cannot recommend this center more highly.

A hidden GEM! ???? After having two horrible experiences with two childcare centers (big names) I decided to try Great Beginnings in Notting Hill. 5 stars for these guys isn’t enough to rate the kindness, the professionalism & the willingness they have to help you and your child! I’m so grateful I have found this place and my daughter loves everyone there and I know that she’s in good hands and safe! Special thanks to the Manager Soula, Kathy, Mary & Hui who have been amazing to us and a big thank you to everyone in the center, you guys are the BEST ????

My daughter has been taken care of at great beginnings nottinghill since she was born.They have taken care of my two children for three years, and my son has just graduated to study prep this year. My child especially likes every educator here. They are caring, friendly and sincere. I especially thank the center manager soula and her team for taking care of my children. The environment here is very good. There are 7 rooms, each of which is spacious and bright. Every educator knows the children very well. I am very relieved to send my child here so that I can go to work at ease. Thanks to every educator of the center.????????

My oldest has transitioned through here and my second is still attending. The educators are excellent and only want the best for your children. The hygiene of the place is exceptional, both children barely ever got sick. The director Soula goes above and beyond. She only wants the best for your children. Communication is exceptional and always willing to answer any questions yo have.
