Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Gatton
"Through forming strong partnerships with families in our diverse community we embrace learning opportunities for all children within a happy, and safe environment."
Goodstart Early Learning Gatton is located in a quiet area set back from the road, with beautiful playgrounds shaded by trees. Our child care centre aims to offer play based programs to assist the children in their development. We encourage children to engage in a range of experiences, with emphasis on mathematics, English, computer skills and multicultural activities.
We believe that all children have the right to express themselves in all aspects of their lives and we encourage this through our programs. Our aim is to inspire children to be individuals and utilize their self-help skills. We encourage family participation in our programs and welcome family input. Goodstart Gatton has an open door policy and is part of the community and hopes that families will join with us to discover their child's world.
Our educators are passionate, highly qualified professionals who understand the individual needs of children and their families. At Goodtsart Gatton, our kitchen provides nutritionally balanced meals that are prepared and cooked on site. We cater to the five food groups ensuring that your childs daily requirements are met. We happily cater for children with allergies.
At Goodstart Gatton, we focus on Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Our educators believe that belonging represents a sense of purpose within the centre, family and the community. It is therefore important that children feel as though they belong within our environment.
The children engaging in activities to promote their abilities allows them to feel a sense of being and individuality.
Finally becoming represents the people they will become with the aid of their family, this centre and the community. Children learn from what they see and we aim to provide a loving and nurturing environment for them every day here at Goodstart Early Learning Gatton.
My Name is Christy Sinclair and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Gatton. I have a Diploma in Children’s services and am currently studding my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood . I have worked in Early Childhood Education and care for the past 8 years. I started my journey at Goodstart Moonee beach before recently transferring to Gatton to take on the Centre Director position.
I have worked as a Room Leader in each of the rooms so I understand the individual needs of each age group. I believe each child has a right to quality education and care. I believe in strong partnerships with families and value family input and feedback and I pride myself in creating a fun and energetic learning environment.
I invite you to come and have a look around at our service and see what makes us unique.
