Goodstart Early Learning Kyneton is a three room centre, consisting of a Nursery (0-2 years old), Toddlers Room (2-3 years old) and Kinder Room (3-5years old). Each of our rooms has its own playground and a team of wonderful, dedicated staff.
We pride ourselves on the warm family-feel atmosphere that staff, children and families help create.We offer educational programs specifically designed to engage children in a wide range of experiences within the early learning environment.
These programs support and extend on children's current strengths, interests and abilities through individual and group observations. Our centre plays an important role in the lives of our families and we hope each family enjoys being a part of our centre.
We have recently introduced a recycling program to the centre, recycling things such as old boxes which we then use as part of our art and craft activities. We have also incorporated a lot of nature activities in our programs to allow the children to learn about the natural environment.
June 2011 the centre under went a major playground renovation, we went from astro turf to real grass and lots of natural materials were used in the renovations as well as the children we consulted during the planning stage to see what they wanted in thier yard. Pictures are avaible in the gallery.
Our current focus here at Goodstart Early Learning Kyneton is to be actively involved in the local community. We plan to do this through open days, be involved in the local weekend markets, we already have an involvement with the local maternal child health centre and local kindergarten to work together to ensure all our children are ready to head off to school.
