Long Day Care
Welcome to Great Beginnings Pakenham. Our long day care and early learning centre provides child care in Pakenham in a modern setting that is perfect for families living or commuting through Pakenham and nearby suburbs Beaconsfield and Officer. We have many families travel to our service from outside of these areas also. From the moment you step into our Pakenham child carecentre, you’ll be immersed in a world where children are encouraged to explore and learn. Our adventure-filled play grounds feature large yards including a cubby house, sandpits, vegetable garden, and play equipment that provide open ended engagement for all the senses. Being outside supports children’s overall health and wellbeing. There’s no need to worry about preparing lunch or snacks. Nutritious meals and snacks are created daily by our in-house cook, catering for all dietary requirements. We cannot forget our parents on the way out to start their day, so they always have fresh treats as well as a coffee station in our foyer. Every room is provided with fresh fruit daily and seasonal fruit is always in the front foyer for children to take on their way out also to hold off hungry bellies before dinner. Shared mealtimes between children and educators strengthen relationships, with opportunities to share stories and experiences, and model healthy eating practices. No two days are the same at our child care centre. Your child will have access to a rotating schedule of engaging specialised programs including music and movement, Auslan language and Bush Kinder. These fun and engaging programs enhance the daily program. We welcome special community guests to the centre based on the children’s interests. Visits from the community include local police, fire brigade, responsible pet ownership and more. Community connections support a sense of belonging for children and provide opportunities to develop social and observational skills with different people, places, and environments. As members of our Great Beginnings community, we look forward to partnering with you to provide information, support, and high-quality education and care in your child’s formative years. Our Family Support Team are happy to chat through your child care needs. Call them today on 1800 517 086 to book a tour at our centre, meet our team of educators, and learn more about why these first five years are so important for your child’s development.

Great Beginnings Pakenham Childcare Centre Manager

Rebecca Lomagno

Centre Manager - Great Beginnings Pakenham

“I am passionate about educating children and allowing each child to reach their own individual learning at their own pace.”

My career in Early Childhood Education and Care began in 2004 and I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services as well as business management and have been a centre manager for many years now. 

I am passionate about educating children and allowing each child to reach their own individual learning at their own pace. Play-based learning as well as intentional teaching is paramount to ensuring that each child can reach beyond their current skills. 

Being  part of our Great Beginnings family ensures that each child feels a sense of happiness and security whilst they are at our centre, ensuring both home life and child care life comes together as one to ensure our children can thrive in all surroundings.  

Safety for my team and your children is a priority for me and I believe communication is a key factor in ensuring this. With this, we like to ensure you are kept up to date with is happening around our service and are open to hearing feedback. I ensure my team are up to date with current practices and ensure they are always respectful, engaging, passionate and full of integrity. 

We value safety and will always ensure we are following practices that align with quality care and support our environment, families, children, educators, and community. We enjoy spoiling our families and hold special breakfast mornings with various breaky meals to take on the go every six weeks, along with freshly made coffee, tea, and milo’s for not only our parents but also for siblings too. What better way to start your day with bellies full and coffee in our systems?  

If you would like to drop in, please feel free to do so at any time that is convenient for you and I or one of my qualified team members would be more than happy to take you on a tour of our centre and chat with you further.
