Bright Beginning Child Care and Early Learning Centre
We are a privately owned education and care service located in Albion Park, 2527. The educators at our service hold a particular commitment to early childhood education. Our practices and service delivery are based on the National Quality Framework, monitored by the Regulatory Authorities and responsible to ACECQA.
We welcome families and children to our service and endeavour to create an extension of the home environment. By working together with families we will provide an environment that promotes quality care and education to the individual child. We believe that education is a continually evolving process that enriches and empowers the individual.
Our aim for the service is to provide quality education and care that is inclusive and recognises diversity, in a caring and supportive environment. Each child is encouraged to aim for personal excellence and to develop skills of independent learning and critical thinking in a co-operative learning environment.
Our Early Education and Care Centre follows the Early Years Learning Framework, thereby giving your child the best possible outcomes in terms of both their abilities to learn and their social development. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) incorporates three key concepts that we apply with every child, everyday, otherwise known as the 3 Bs; Belonging, Being and Becoming.
acknowledges and encourages children’s abilities to form and appreciate new relationships, thereby supporting their social development.

In a nutshell, OWNA is a communication tool that allows our educators to simplify their documentation, save time and securely link the family in real time to their child's progress. OWNA also manages your Family Tax Law obligations by managing all CCS/Accounts and Billing. We like to keep you up to date throughout the day, and OWNA allows for two-way communication between families & the service
