Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Beachmere

Goodstart Early Learning Beachmere is located in the small suburb of Beachmere about ten minutes from Caboolture CBD. Our friendly and highly qualified team of educators at Goodstart Early Learning Beachmere take pride in creating a safe and secure environment for all children to play and learn at their individual pace.

Our educators take the time to encourage positive friendships and bonds, during every child’s stay at Goodstart Early Learning Beachmere. We provide Before and After School Care for families at the Beachmere State School which is a short walk back to the centre. 

Our centre prides itself on our annual childrens christmas party with most families keen to attend year after year. We also plan many other exciting events throughout the year like colour days, dress up days and shows. We encourage families to participate wherever possible as we believe family input is an important tool in the development of the children and the growth of the centre.

Centre Director

Shelley Wicks

Shelley Wicks


My name is Shelley and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Beachmere. I have been working in the childcare sector for over 10 years, I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services.  I started from a float position and have worked my way up to Centre Director.

I believe all children have rights no matter who they are, where they live, what their religion is, whether they are a boy or girl, what their culture is, whether they have a disability, whether they are rich or poor. No child should be treated unfairly on any basis, also all children have the right to give their opinion and for adults to listen and take them seriously.

 

I believe in Bowlby’s theory when familiar caregivers respond warmly and consistently to young children they form strong positive emotional bonds (attachments). This is important for healthy emotional and social development. Children who have strong positive attachments to familiar caregivers use them as a safe base from which to explore the environment. 

 

I believe that The Early Years Learning Framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning. The framework also recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.
