General Manager, Bella Grace
  • Bella Grace Early Learning Centres were born out of a desire to create a high level of care and quality early learning environment. My own two children Bella (4) and Harry (2) were my main inspiration, wanting them to have a wonderful early childhood experience in a safe, stimulating and hygienic centre whilst I was working.  Bella Grace Aroona was designed and built in 2003 after considerable planning.  Priorities when designing the centres were to provide larger than regulation state of the art buildings, exceptional resources and highly qualified and nurturing educators.  These are constantly maintained and enhanced to allow optimum learning environments for the children in our care.  There was never any intention to build any other centres, but Bella Grace was so well received by the local community that a second Bella Grace at Chancellor Park was completed in April 2004 welcoming another 147 families.  Followed by Bella Grace Beerwah in 2007, Bella Grace Brightwater in 2011 and Bella Grace Brightwater School Kindergarten in 2014.  Bella Grace now proudly provides exceptional care and education to over 420 families each day and employs over 110 wonderful educators.  Bella Grace is a family owned and operated service that constantly strives to maintain excellence in meeting the children’s needs in a holistic approach.
