About Goodstart Alfredton
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Alfredton is located in a quiet residential area of Ballarat. We have a dedicated and friendly team of educators, all with qualifications in Children’s Services.
We provide an educational program in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, with a variety of experiences including art, music and physical activities. We also offer an accredited School Readiness Program that prepares our children for the transition into school.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre.
Outside, we have age appropriate play spaces and equipment, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability. Our four play areas have sandpits, digging patches, vege gardens, worm farms, lots of space for exploring and shade all year around.
All meals are prepared on site by our qualified cook who uses tasty, fresh and nutritional ingredients – just the thing to keep hungry tummies satisfied.
We pride ourselves in developing strong and meaningful relationships between educators and families, and encourage family participation in our centre. Our families enjoy being part of our special events including Grandparent's Day, End of Year Basket Tea and Preschool Graduation as well as several other days throughout the year.
We look forward to meeting you and your family soon! Come in and meet the team, take a tour and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.
