Breakfast Point Childcare Centre was founded on a vision of giving children the best possible start in life through access to high quality early childhood learning and care.
Breakfast Point Childcare Centre is an organisation that operates with strong business disciplines. We invest in our, our people and our purpose for the benefit of every child, their family and their individual early learning requirements.
Every day Breakfast Point Childcare Centre management and educators support over 30 families and the 35 children who attend our small 25 place boutique centre. It is our belief that small boutique centres offer a higher quality of childcare through a more individualised support system for children and their families. Small centres create a family atmosphere where the child is seen as an individual and where important nurturing (which is the basis of all early learning developmental) is supported.
Our vision is for all children to have the best possible start in life in order to achieve their full potential in all future learning environments.
Our purpose is to ensure all children receive the most informed, up to date and innovative early learning education possible.
“Childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world”.
At Breakfast Point Childcare Centre, children and their families are central to everything we do.
In 2015 a consortium of passionate young business professionals (parents themselves) came together with the sole purpose of formulating an innovative Early Learning Childcare Environment. We have adopted a holistic approach to the childcare field in which we see how in today’s world communities are constantly evolving and growing. We believe as providers of early childhood education and care it is imperative to provide the most up to date information and early childhood education and care possible to the children and families who attend this childcare centre.
We will endeavour to ensure the current and future generation of children, irrespective of life circumstance, are active participants provided with opportunities to flourish and lead productive lives as adults, and we know that our strong commitment and participation in the early learning field will have a significant impact on this goal.
“It Takes a Community to Grow a Child”
We’re driven by three guiding principles:
Breakfast Point Childcare Centre Management has set four strategic goals that drive our work:
High Quality: Ensure all of our centres deliver high quality early learning and care in a safe environment.
Inclusion: Enhance outcomes for children in vulnerable circumstances.
Financial Sustainability: Invest in our organisation, our people, our communities and our principles.
Management commitment: Build a strong capable, aligned and engaged workforce capable of delivering high quality early childhood education and care to the local and wider community.
Commitment to quality early learning and care: We consistently work to give children the best possible start in life through access to quality learning in our childcare centre we also advocate the benefits of investing in early learning through policy makers through active participation in the United Voice Childcare union and its represent ivies who work tirelessly to improve the overall childcare environment for children, families and communities, seeking to demonstrate the benefits through quality research and building relationships across the early childhood sector to improve collaboration and outcomes.
Management and educators in collaboration with parents have developed an Early Childhood Educational Program which focusses on supporting the needs of young children using a holistic approach to programming in order to prepare children for the coming challenges of kindergarten, school life and beyond. Our literacy and numeracy programs are incorporated into your child’s day at Breakfast Point the programs are formulated based on the child’s individual and collective interests from the environment in which they live. The program is innovative, motivating, engaging and supports each child in the development of self-motivated and positive attitudes towards learning. Our goal is to prepare your child for transition into kindergarten through professional programming and support in all areas of their development; numeracy and literacy skills, social skills including a strong sense of self confidence to achieve future goals and individual aspirations.

Educators’ practices and the relationships they form with children and families have a significant effect on children’s involvement and success in learning. Children thrive when families and educators work together in partnership to support young children’s learning. Children’s early learning influences their life chances. Wellbeing and a strong sense of connection, optimism and engagement enable children to develop a positive attitude to learning.
The Educators employed at Breakfast Point Childcare Centre are trained professionals who hold a passion and commitment to the early childhood field and the children in their care.
Centre Director Nominated Supervisor
Marjorie has been working in the early childhood industry for well over 20 years, and she has held several management positions in both the community and private-based sectors around the Sydney area.
She holds a Diploma in Social Science, Management Certificates, Certified Supervisor, First Aid Certificate, Asthma and Anaphylaxis Certificate, as well as attending numerous training courses and she completed her formal education in the Sydney area.
She has a passion for working with children, as she strongly believe that every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. She enjoys helping children develop and reach their full potential by believing in them as capable individuals. When doing this your child will discover who they are, it allows them to express their own ideas, gain opinions about the world they live in, and then naturally their own identity will flourish.
"It's my personal mission to respect and nurture every child's cultural identity, as my passion is driven by my vision to make a difference in every child's life!"
Early Childhood Educator
Shama has recently completed her Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care.
Shama says, "I love all the hugs that the children so generously give me and it’s so wonderful when the kids learn your name and use it for the first time. Having the chance to contribute to and observe a child's development is also something that I find extremely rewarding being there to watch a child taking his/her first steps or even eating on their own is incredibly amazing".
Early Childhood Educator
As a committed and supportive educator with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care, Suzanne believes when children are shown love, kindness and patience with consistent positive interactions, they become more confident, happy and bright little learners!
Children are incessantly inquisitive and use their senses to learn about their world. Through actions, words, perception and encouragement they develop awareness and knowledge. They need to communicate with others to continue and extend their curiosity and skills they need. She believes by providing them with opportunities to explore and challenge their skills through play will foster creative ideas and optimize their thinking and physical abilities.
"I veraciously believe children are constantly learning from their families, environment, educators and peers. Children need to feel safe and secure in their environment. I look forward to connecting and building strong and respectful partnerships with the families in the centre, so I can provide the utmost care for each individual child."

Above all they need to know and believe they are loved. I like to create a fun, happy, caring, learning environment where children and educators can grow together in confidence and enjoy each other’s company. An environment where all families, educators and others feel welcome at all times”.
We have just moved into the Concord area six months ago, and Breakfast Point Childcare was the second centre our two kids enrolled in as we didn't feel the other centre really looked after them well. And what a pleasant surprise! This centre - even though small and not as high-tech as some other centres - but the care they provided my children are the best I've experienced since Troy was born four years ago. The carers really care about my children and Troy comes home learning something new every week. Frank & Marsha Jones
Our daughter Joanne didn't like going to childcare before but for some reason really looks forward to going to BPCC. She's been at BPCC for two years and we're reluctant to move because of her affection to the centre. The staff are amazing, and my husband and I are very grateful to have found such a heartwarming team looking after Joanne. Clare O'Connor
