We provide an educational program using the Early Years Learning Framework, which covers all areas of early development. This program includes the use of Broadlearn and Letterland on the computers which are situated in the Kindy room.
We have a calendar of events with various activities that we incorporate into the program. We have Grandparents Day, police visits, old MacDonald's farm, a family fun picnic at the end of the year to celebrate Christmas and much much more.
In the Pre-Kindy and Kindy rooms we have degree qualified Pre-School Teachers preparing the children with pre reading and writing skills for the transition to school. One highlight in these rooms is Show and Tell which increases children's self confidence, self esteem and communication skills.
We would love for you to come in and meet our wonderful team, look at the parent information areas, review the routines, and to have a look around for yourself. We look forward to meeting you soon.
My name is Justine Teakle and I have been working at Goodstart Early Learning Payneham for 13 years. I started at the centre when I completed my Diploma of Social Science in 1996, and worked across all age groups before becoming the Centre Director in May 2006.
I believe in maintaining a high standard of quality care to ensure the children's safety and well being. I am also passionate about providing a developmentally appropriate program for the children to excel in their learning.
