About Goodstart Gladesville
Goodstart Early Learning Gladesville is now officially open as of 29 January 2019!
Our modern, purpose-built centre provides much-needed care for local families. Featuring spacious six learning spaces over two levels and separate nursery sleep rooms, Goodstart Gladesville is designed as a modern yet home-like, naturally inspired environment.
Other features include four seperate age-appropriate outdoor, natural playspaces directly accessible from each learning space - including sensory paths, sandpits, bamboo teepees, mud kitchen and water play. The centre has naturally-inspired, purpose-built learning environments with the latest educational resources.
With a highly experienced and qualified team, our early learning programs cater to each child’s stage of development, from six weeks of age to Preschool-aged children. The curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and is tailored to your child’s individual interests.
Please contact us to register your interest in Goodstart Gladesville and be the first to hear updates and news as we progress towards opening.

Brooke Townend Centre Director
Hi there! My name is Brooke Townend, and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart Gladesville.
I have been a part of Goodstart for the past 13 years, working as a Lead Educator, Centre Director and Area Manager. During this time and most recently I have spent 8 years leading the team in Mosman. I studied at Macquarie University where I obtained a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education).
My vision is grounded behind Goodstart’s guiding principles, that children are at the centre of everything that we do. The children are the reason that I strive for high quality early learning programs, as I believe that every child is entitled to the highest quality of education and care in their first five years.
I work in partnerships with families to ensure that the education and care that we are providing for families meets their needs, as well as providing them with the support to parent their children through the first five years.
I also strive to be a valued part of our community, through supporting the needs of the community in the education and care that we deliver, as well as meeting the strong social purpose interwoven in the Goodstart organisation.
I look forward to welcoming you to our new centre.
