Goodstart Early Learning Lara

Centre Overview

Goodtstart Early Learning Lara is a 122 place child care centre and offers care to families living in and around the semi-rural township of Lara. We provide care for children aged from six weeks to six years old, including a four year old kindergarten program with a qualified kindergarten teacher. Outside School Hours and Vacation Care is offered to children attending the three local primary schools.

We offer our families great continuity of care with the majority of our educators having worked at our centre for several years. Some of us have been with Goodstart Early Learning Lara since it opened in 1994.

Committed educators combined with the close-knit community of Lara, allows us to provide a secure, friendly and caring environment for both children and their families.
