Coming to Beacon has been such a big part of our daughter’s life for the last 3.5 years. We are so grateful for what every educator has done for her and so lucky to have chosen Beacon for her preschool education and care. I can still remember how shy she was when she first started at the Possums Room. She always had her backpack on her back, waiting for Mum and Dad next to the door. Jillian Sophia and Eunice set up some special table and chairs for her next to the door so she could sit and play closer to the door. Soon enough, she settled in, started to make friends. And now she has become so much more confident and independent, and she absolutely loves coming to the center everyday. We are so proud of her achievements and the bond she has developed with the educators. We cannot thank you enough for providing such a nurturing environment for her to thrive in. We really enjoy scrolling through the photos of the various events we had at the center, the Christmas concerts, sports day, Mother’s Day, dress up day, just to name a few, and the daily reflection stories that provides us so much insights into their learning and activities. We really appreciate the efforts that go into organising the events and writing the stories. These are all things that are above the beyond what we expect of a great childcare center, but here at Beacon we have it all.
Wow! Thank you so much for these incredible photos and thank you for giving him so much stimulation and joy. Seeing them all together it is just amazing the experiences he has had and the awesome educators he has been so lucky to be with. I can’t thank you enough for letting us both be part of your wonderful centre. His world has been filled with love, kindness, stimulation, music, good food, great habits, nature and the most wonderful people.
My children have been attending Beacon Street since they were 5 months old with the eldest now 4. Leaving your children with strangers is always hard and as babies even harder, but the atmosphere and support at the centre greatly allayed my concerns. I have been exceptionally impressed at the level of care my children receive and the amount of energy and creativity expended to making their learning fun. At maternal health appointments my children far exceed the developmental levels for their age, most of this I attribute to the excellent education they are receiving. The centre has a family feel with inclusive activities, both in and out of care hours, where all the parents have an opportunity to meet the staff, parents and most importantly see the children play with their peers. My children are happy and contented with well-developed social skills and I have peace of mind. I cannot recommend Beacon Street highly enough.
Our son attends Beacon Street children’s centre since 2016, we have so many wonderful things to say about Beacon street children’s centre, there so much more than an ordinary early learning centre,as our son been there a long time and we have seen many things over the last 2 years; there is a strong sense of community and every teacher makes you feel like family when you walk through the door. We still remember the first day with Beacon Street Children’s centre, our son greeted by his name, everyone say goodbye when we pick him up. Jillian and all teachers are never too busy to sit down and discuss anything in our mind, suggestion or idea you may have, everything is so organised in Beacon Street Children’s centre, safe and clean environment, some time we feel its like a school, everyone know their kids and can tailor their efforts to individual child needs. We just want to thank you and all the staff again for the incredible environment and for all the experiences you provided, you all put so much efforts in, so warm and caring and full of stimulation for our son, Beacon Street Children’s centre’s staff are awesome role models, we are so grateful that our son has the opportunity to learn and develop there.
I really like Beacon Street Children’s Centre. All the teachers are always welcoming and really care for the kids. Every morning when my daughter arrived at the centre, there was always someone there welcoming her and taking care of her. My daughter has learnt a lot from the centre and she really enjoyed her stay. She always surprised me with a new song or a new story which she learnt from the Centre. The teachers take very good responsibility of the safety of the children and I was always contacted to confirm the identity of the person who picked up my daughter on my behalf (not all the centres do this). The Centre is very special and it is definitely a great place for children. I highly recommend the centre.
I would just like to say thank you. You are amazing. I enrolled my son in Beacon Street because the staff seemed understanding and kind and this has remained true ever since. Thank you also for your kind wishes and support for his sister over this past year. It has meant so much xx The room leaders and staff at Beacon Street have always been fantastic and I will recommend your centre to all my colleagues
Beacon Street Children’s Centre from the very beginning has been extremely supportive and accommodating. Their orientation for children is excellent and non rigid, allowing my daughter to settle in before having to leave her for the full day. Communication between the centre and myself is constant, which puts my mind at ease knowing that they have my daughters best interest at heart. One of the deciding factors for choosing Beacon Street Children’s Centre was that there is a genuine warmth from the educators and I took great comfort in knowing that if my daughter needed a hug, then there would be someone there to give it to her.
Thank you for your all your support and caring you have not only given to our son, but to our family. Your carers may not know unfortunately our previous childcare centre burnt down leaving him without care for 3 days a week. This put our family under an enormous amount of pressure and stress as we both work during the week. Luckily 2 weeks later my wife found Beacon St Child Centre. My wife drove over to inspect the premises and to meet your wonderful team of carers. We both were impressed with nutritional value placed on the food served and the skills and qualifications held by the staff at the centre. Our son has settled down extremely well given the sudden change of circumstances. It warms our heart every time when one of us picks the little man up that he is always laughing and playing with the other children or being cuddled by one of your carers. My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend Beacon Street Centre to any of our friends or family as you have made the 3 of us feel part of your family.
Beacon St is a beacon of hope for anyone looking for a centre that really values the child’s sense of belonging and connection. After visiting seven different centres, Beacon St was the only one to offer an extended orientation; they wanted me in every day with my daughter so that she could get used to the beautiful carers and the space. Wow! Such a lovely vibe and Jillian (the director) is such an understanding and kind soul.
We have been most happy with the teachers there, all are experienced and very warm . And the kids here are all well educated. My son really enjoyed his 2 years at Beacon Street.
