Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Newtown

Goodstart Newtown is a three room child care centre catering for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years old.
We have a funded Kindergarten program with passionate, dedicated educators.
Each educator has their own special talents which they share with the children. Some having cultural backgrounds or creative skills that are shared throughout the centre.  
Goodstart Newtown prides itself on its implementation of sustainable practices, where the children are taught to reduce, re-use and recycle materials, food and waste.
All of our educators hold their Diploma of Children’s services or are studying towards their Diploma or Bachelor. We have a Kindergarten teacher who holds her Masters of Teaching. All educators have a wonderful knowledge of the National Quality Framework.
Our child care centre has an on-site cook who prepares nutritionally balanced meals, also catering for special dietary requirements.
Our centre is located on Aberdeen Street in the heart of Geelong, Newtown. Located just off Latrobe Terrace and in walking distance to the CBD and Geelong train station. We are close to supermarkets, shops, schools and medical centres. Public transport is easily accessible having a bus stop out the front of our centre.  
We also have a centre pet puppy, George who the children love and learn to take care of him. George is all part of our family at Goodstart Newtown.
We look forward to meeting you and your family at Goodstart Newtown.

Centre Director

Katie Sinclair

Katie Sinclair

My name is Katie and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Newtown.  My passion has always been educating children and one day running my own centre.  I have been working in childcare since I was 18 years old and have been in the industry over 10 years.  I have worked as the second in charge for Newtown for 4 years before becoming Director.


I have a child of my own and truly believe that Goodstart gives children the best possible start in life.  It focuses on all elements of education and through the play-based learning programs, children can really strive to achieve anything they wish. 


My goal is to keep Newtown the exceeding standard it is focusing on the genuine love and care my passionate educators provide.  I hold my Diploma of Children’s Services and am just a placement away from my Bachelor of Education.  My vision is to build a learning community where everyone feels safe, confident and empowered.
