Our Play Spaces
118 sportsmans Parade, Bokarina
phone 5437 8401
Our Sportsmans Parade service is our very first Green Beginnings, operating for 10 years...our first baby if you like. Our "Sportsmans" play space is located opposite the Kawana Farmers Markets (on Saturdays) and is across the road from the Kawana Waters State College.
Many of our educators at Sportsmans have been with us for over 5 years. It is well known for its experienced (older ...shhh don't tell them I said this) staff, sense of community and strong support for, and connection to families. Their massive efforts in fundraising for charities each year is something they should be very proud of. Sportsmans is also home to our resident chickens. Our Sportsmans parade service is within walking distance to the community gardens down the road, the community centre next door (where children's concerts are held each year) and the beautiful Lake Kawana (in our backyard). Our educational team here have a very special bond...you can feel it as soon as you enter the door and it filters through to the children and the play space. Sportsmans teachers have a strong interest in and are advocates for children's health and emotional well being. This service is lucky to have a qualified children's yoga instructor on site most days. The team at Sportmans bring many talents to the space which they generously share with the children. Whether it be the way they embrace children's hundred languages, expertly make children's learning visible or fill the corridors with the sound of music. They demonstrate their passion for early childhood education in many ways.
Green Beginnings Sportsmans Parade is open Monday to Friday (50 weeks of the year) from...
7.15 am and closes at 5.45pm
You can contact our Service Directors Rebecca Dunne, Samantha Stuczyk (currently on long service leave) and Leonie Golden (also our Kindergarten and Curriculum Advisor for all Green Beginnings) on 54378401
9 Innovation Parkway, Birtinya
Our Innovation Parkway Green Beginnings came along as a result of the growing community and families amazing response to our first child centre. This play space is just over 5 years old and located in a business dominant area, close to the Sunshine Coast hospitals and health precinct.
Our Innovation Parkway service is known for its amazing nature inspired design. The large outdoor play space has a climbing tree, veggie garden, and mud patch with the kindergarten boasting an eye catching indoor atrium. The educators here have been described as the younger of the two centres (don't tell the sportsmans Parade educators), and are equally amazing and well known for their vibrancy and the strong connections they form with children. Our educators here have a passion and eye for creating the most inspiring provocations and extensions of children's interests.

27 Tailslide Cresent, Bokarina Beach
Our Bokarina Beach Green Beginnings is in the early design stages and will hopefully be coming to you in late 2022.
This Green Beginnings is in an ideal location, not just because of its close proximity to the other services, but its position on the beach. The developing community around this site is very exciting and we are very blessed to be a part of it.
