Welcome to Brady Bunch Early Learning Centre Ballarat


Brady Bunch Early Learning Centres are proud and excited to announce our new Early Learning Centre
in the Ballarat suburb of Sebastopol.

This is the second of our centres … the other being in Burpengary Queensland.

We are a family run centre where you and your child are valued members of our Brady Bunch family. Our focus behind our centres locations, is to position them away from main roads due to potentially dangerous traffic hazards, air pollution and outside noise levels. Our proprietors, Glenn and Sheree Brady are related to many pioneering families in the area. Glenn’s great, great Grandfather, James Long, founded Sunshine Biscuits and was a Mayor of East Ballarat in the 1870s. We have hand-picked the very best of educators to care for your children, in line with our exceptionally high standards we require to support the centres learning environments and our educational programs.

Please take a moment to read our logo icon definitions on our philosophy page, which are the very foundation of our centre’s philosophy and values.

Remember your children are our most valued entity.

My daughter has been with Brady Bunch since the start of the term due to moving from another centre. I believe in first impressions as I feel it really is everything. First impression the centre was vibrant, clean and seemed a fun space for kids. The environment was home-like, welcoming, and reflective of diversity. Each room seemed age appropriate for example, the infant room had plenty of space for crawlers and babies that needed tummy time. All the children seemed happy and engaged and all appeared to have access to diverse activities and projects, they all seemed responsive and comfortable with all workers. I feel Rachel and her team are very family orientated and I love that. In just over a month my daughter is already benefiting from the structured programs and curriculum (even just the basic activities) due to their supervision being a ‘hand on approach’. I’m disappointed I didn’t move my daughter earlier to this centre.read more

highly recommend Brady Bunch. They have gone above and beyond to make sure my son and I feel comfortable. its not easy at all leaving a baby who's so attached to mummy and just cries for me, but Emma and Aimee make sure to call, update, and send through any photo's of Jayden being happy to reassure me. Thankyou ladies!read more

I have had my son with Brady Bunch since they first opened and I cannot recommend them highly enough!! So much love and care goes into the running of this place. From the day to day activities, to the daily reports available to know what your child has been up to. I also take advantage of the Holiday Program they have set up for my 2 primary school aged boys. Great activities and they love being at the same place as their little brother.read more

Brady Bunch Early Learning Centre is incredible, the time and effort put into all of the children is amazing, my son struggles to settle in some mornings Rachel, all the girls and Michael go out of their way to help him feel safe, important, and make all drop offs more relaxed and less tears! My son has come leaps and bounds since starting there mid year.. all thanks to Brady Bunch he will be prepared and ready for school when that comes!.. I could not recommend them any higher! Thank you Rachel and your beautiful Team that you’ve created! 🖤🖤read more

By far the most professionally run child care facility I have ever experienced in my 12 years of being of mother. The most gorgeous staff who put their heart & soul into their job. I cannot recommend more highly to anyone who is looking for the perfect place to enroll their children in.

The Brady Bunch ELC has been amazing beyond words to myself and my daughter Willow. They have gone above and beyond to make sure Willow settled into the centre, and still continue to this day to exceed our expectations of care and love. The room educators and the director Rachel are so loving, professional and consistent it makes it so much easier to leave my daughter knowing she is in her capable hands! The programs and recourses available at this centre are of such a high quality, the change I have seen in my daughters development in such a short time since attending is amazing! I highly recommend this centre to all my friends and the public, we have been so impressed.read more
