Our Claremont centre is within picturesque Claremont Park, at the end of Bernard Street. Formerly the Claremont Community Kindergarten, our light filled centre is purpose built for young children.  The large playground is shaded by a magnificent plane tree and includes a water pump, large fort, tunnels, cubby and bike track, complete with an outlook into Claremont Park.

Brooke McAuliffe and Michele Lemin (B.Ed Early Childhood) lead this centre and ensure that each day the children are offered an outstanding educational program. The rooms are filled with celebrations of the children’s learning and creativity and the learning environment offers endless opportunities for exploration, investigation, discovery and play.

Claremont Bright Beginnings is approved for Child Care Benefit enabling eligible parents to claim both Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.  Please contact Centrelink to assess your family’s eligibility.
