Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Geelong East
Goodstart Early Learning Geelong East is a small, homely centre. We pride ourselves on the way we welcome and orientate families into our extended family here at the centre.
Our qualified and experienced educators are committed to early childhood education and continue to update their skills and knowledge through ongoing professional development.
Goodstart Early Learning Geelong East cares for up to 67 children a day, broken into three room groups. Each room offers child oriented and play based educational programs which are designed to meet the individual needs of the children.
All meals are prepared on the premises by our talented cook who ensures tasty, nutritious meals are delivered to the children each day. We currently work on a five week rotating menu which includes many family favourites such as hot roast dinner and hearty lasagna. Dietary restrictions are also catered for.
We incorporate various special events and community days into our programs and calender of events, such as the annual hot cross bun making with our friends from Brumby's Bakery, visits from Geelong Police, and other dress up days.
Our families enjoy celebrating with us and participating in these extra events. They are always eager to attend excursions and functions such as end of year celebrations, children's graduation and grandparent weeks, just to name a few.
We encourage all families to come in and meet our team at any time and experience the fun first hand.
My name is Tanya Otway and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Geelong East. I have worked in many roles here over the last fourteen years, and am proud to now lead a team of passionate Early Childhood Professionals who are dedicated to providing high quality care.
I love walking into our centre each morning and greeting all the families and children. It is great to be able to move around the rooms throughout the day, sharing in the fun and laughter with everyone.
I personally have enjoyed - and continue to enjoy - the great relationships I have with families, children and educators at Goodstart Early Learning Geelong East. Being a smaller centre allows us more opportunities to communicate and share experiences on a personal level. This is why I feel at home at Goodstart and I hope you will too.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
