As a childcare worker myself of 7 years when it came to finding the right centre for my son it wasn't easy. I'd looked at 8 different centres around the redlands some had good points others I wouldn't even step foot in. As a parent you just know and have that feeling when something is right and from the second I walked in at Perfect Beginnings I felt at peace and knew my son was be supported and looked after just as much as I do. I immediately felt relaxed and the atmosphere and vibe was amazing. The children were all happy, they were playing with the endless amounts of toys, those who were unsettled were attended to and comforted, the staff were down at the kids level and getting down and dirty with whatever adventure the children wanted to do. At the end of the day my son is happy and thriving and I couldn't be more happy with Perfect Beginnings. Most importantly I trust them with my most precious bundle of life. ~ S. O'Connor
Perfect Beginnings is more than a daycare for my child; it’s a second home. He not only loves the staff, but respects them and they respect him in return. They have all patiently and lovingly helped him to become more patient with himself, to be more respectful, polite and to be a good friend to others.They are so creative and are always prepared with some new activity for him to try. I couldn’t think of a nicer way for my son to spend his day away from his family. ~ Tegan
Perfect Beginnings has and continues to provide a fantastic learning environment for our children. The educators have always been supportive and ready to assist where they can to make our children, and even us as parents, feel comfortable and involved. We love the creative ideas educators come up with to keep our little ones minds exploring and experiencing new things, including baking, spa days, artistic ventures, gardening and more recently being able to see chicks hatching – there is always a new and exciting adventure to be had J The extra-curricular options are also fantastic and provide affordable additional options for parents to include the children in, a particular favourite in our family is the music programme. ~ Cherie
The team at PBCCM are amazing. My son is dropped off early so often it's not his normal educators but all the team are welcoming and knew us by name very quickly. It's a warm, loving environment that as a first time mum has made me feel completely comfortable leaving my son there. I especially love the journal with specifics on my sons development and the daily overview out the front. Makes me feel like I'm still apart of his learning and development while he's with you. Thank you! ~ Lauren
Our son loves Perfect Beginnings Mitchelton. The staff are caring, high achieving and enthusiastic and the centre has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended! Cheers, Sian and Craig
My Son has been attending Perfect Beginnings for the past 3 1/2 years. I can honestly say I have always felt comfortable leaving him with these most wonderful carers. Each and every staff member greets you with a professional and friendly manner and truly cares about each and every child that attends the centre. The directors are always willing to help out with requests or advice if needed. I would highly recommend Perfect Beginnings for anyone looking for high quality care for their child. ~ Kate
Hi, We have been a perfect beginnings family for over seven years and three children. Our children have truly enjoyed attending the centre and look forward to days of fun playing with their friends and carers. The pre-prep program was a fantastic preparation for prep and big school. Thank you to all the staff who have truly enriched our children's lives and made the daily chaos of work life slightly easier. ~ Kelly & Paul
From day one Sarah has made us feel welcome, comfortable and she is very approachable. To leave your child in the hands of another person is hard even on a bad day but Sarah always made Hunter feel safe and he is continually happy.
From changing day care centres I noticed the difference straight away with how much Hunter was learning and how much he developed in such a short time frame.Hunter was always a shy kid and he has completely taken to Sarah more than any teacher, I know because Sarah is all he talks about, Hunter loves going to day care and he is thrilled when he sees "His Miss Sarah”.
From what I have seen, Sarah doesn’t take favourites; she has always treated every child with the same love and compassion as the next. I feel comfortable with Sarah’s skills to teach my Children to be the best they can be.On occasions Sarah has gone that extra step to help where possible, when Hunter was collected from Day care with a temperature, I had my hands full with Leo being a new born and of course Hunter wanted to be carried also, Sarah helped me to the car and assisted with Hunter.I believe she is an asset to the centre.
I think all the teachers do an Fantastic Job and they all have so much patience. Can I also say that Miss Tilly also does a fantastic job, she is such a burst of energy and she is always happy. ~ Michelle McMillan
My son has been enrolled at Perfect Beginnings for just over 1 year. I enrolled him at 15 months of age after taking him out of another centre where I didn't feel he was receiving the love and care I wished him to have in my absence. It was the best decision I could have made as the staff at Perfect Beginnings clearly love what they do and the children they care for. My son was always having fun when I came to pick him up in the afternoon and I could see he enjoyed going there. I could rest easy knowing he was in good hands. I would totally recommend the centre. ~ Alison
We would just like to share a little something with you about our time at Perfect Beginnings Child Care Centre.
Our little boy has been attending Montessori Minds since the beginning of the year. Changing centres is not an easy task, for the parents or the child. But the staff here, made it so easy and made us all feel comfortable. He was quite a shy boy who was very reserved and clingy. Before long, this changed and he was barely saying his goodbye's to us when we dropped him off, he was too excited to start the day.
Right from the very first day we dropped him off, we have always been greeted with such warmth and respect. Not only us, but our boy too. He comes home smiling every day, can hardly wait to tell us about all the wonderful fun things he had done throughout the day! Getting him to stop talking about Miss Boogie? Not a chance! He adores the staff, the children and the other parents, who take the time to get to know one another.
The centre is always immaculately clean and well organised. The program is nothing like we have seen else where and really gives the children a chance to learn to be independent. Our little one has completely changed and really came into his own little person after attending Montessori Minds. He's talking more, he's more confident and much more independent. He makes friends easier, and just is all round a much more social child.
We can't thank all the staff enough for taking such amazing care of our precious little guy. He will most certainly miss the staff here, when he goes off to prep next year and we will never forget the friendships we all made.
It really does feel like our second family. ~ Rebecca & Aleksandar Popovic, 10th September 2015
As a working mother, it’s very important to feel comfortable with the people and surroundings in which you leave your child for the greater part of the working day. From day 1, I felt very comfortable with Montessori Minds. The centre is a welcoming place, not only for the child who attends but also for all the family. The educators always have a chat with you about how your child’s day has been or offer advice on any issues. Communication is excellent with regular newsletters and emails that make you feel that you are a valued member of a larger community. The parents are also given the child portfolios at the end of each year, which feature a selection of the child’s artwork from throughout the year, as well as all the pictures of the child on a CD. We are grateful for the care and commitment of the childcare team at Montessori Minds in the growth and development of our son. They provide our son with a safe and nurturing environment where he is engaged in purposeful play-based activities. We appreciate the support, patience, and time from the childcare team in recognising our strengths and responding to our needs. We would like to thank Ms. Crystal, Ms. Annette, Ms. Iris, Ms. Boogie and especially Ms. Sonora for the care, understanding and guidance in the past 18 months. I am sure all of you will be missed and blessed in the future.~ Lu & Andrew Lanham, 25 November 2015
