Greenwood Point Cook
Greenwood Point Cook opened in January 2019 with our experienced team of educators, purpose-built facilities for children to explore and learn, access to enriching resources, technology and more to ignite your child’s potential.
To provide you with extra quality time with your little one in the morning, we will have a dedicated cook based at our centre to create nutritious meals. Special dietary requirements are catered for and our menu will be updated seasonally for children to experience new and exciting meals.
The beating heart of our centre is our team of passionate, qualified and nurturing educators and teachers. We carefully select our educational team to ensure they fit the philosophy of the centre and meet the expectations of parents in the Point Cook area and beyond.
You will never miss a moment of your child’s day, where families are provided with access to our communication app to easily share your child’s early learning experience, capture their achievements throughout the day and inform you through photos, notes, and stories.

Centre Manager: Donna Walker Davis
Kia ora and warm greetings. My name is Donna Walker Davis and I am the Centre Manager of Greenwood Point Cook. I relocated, along with my husband and two children from New Zealand to Australia four years ago and have made Melbourne our home. I have been employed within the education sector for nine years now.
I received my Bachelor of Education in 2013 in New Zealand and had the pleasure of having my children with me while I worked. Watching them grow and mould into the young boys they are today was a blessing and I genuinely adore and have respect for the teaching profession. Whilst living in New Zealand I managed a few centres from different philosophical backgrounds including Reggio Emilia and Montessori. I have taught in all age groups from infants through to kinder. Since arriving in Australia I have been employed as a casual relief teacher in Primary Schools, ran a kinder program in a long day care service and managed a centre located in Altona North.
My personal teaching philosophy follows that of Reggio Emilia as well as Tikanga Maori whereby every child is respected and included regardless of their background. I believe in utilising the environment as the third teacher and basing our practices around respectful relationships and inclusivity. Cultural diversity is of utmost importance; this intertwined with an aesthetically appealing learning environment rich with meaningful inquiry-based learning opportunities is what I strive for my team to achieve daily. Acknowledging every child’s physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual development is a culture I strive to set in my team, allowing children to blossom through inquiry and real-life experiences all within a social context. Love is a strong pillar that I believe lays the foundation to respectful relationships and positive mindsets within the culture of our centre.
I decided to take on this role in the hopes of sharing my knowledge and teaching experiences with my team to create a teaching environment that goes beyond caring for young children. I believe in high expectations and encouraging children to push beyond their current zone of proximal development, to achieve goals through life-long learning and play based experiences.
I enjoy the families and children I have the pleasure of meeting and look forward to being part of your child’s learning and development here at Greenwood Point Cook.
