About Goodstart Anna Bay
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Anna Bay is situated just outside of Anna Bay, surrounded by the tranquillity of the Australian bush. We are close to schools, shops and tucked into a quiet residential area.
We believe in building strong meaningful relationships, so we can create supportive, rich nurturing play environments that lead to lifelong learning. To do this we build Key Educator relationships. Children are offered a Key Educator, who will build secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships, recognising children as active participants in their own learning. It is our belief that before a child can learn they must feel comfortable in a safe and healthy environment.
Inside, all of the rooms - Nursery to Preschool – a setup, in line with the Early Years Learning Framework has been created. Our rooms invite sensory and play based learning opportunities. Natural, stimulating surrounds and resources ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through open ended, play-based learning.
Our Preschool room provides key learning areas for socio-dramatic play, science, mathematics, technology, creative arts and design, construction as well as physically active play. As a small coastal community, Goodstart Early Learning Anna Bay is closely associated with Anna Bay Public School. We offer a Preschool program that builds school readiness and schedule annual orientation visits with the school.
Our Storypark online platform, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths through documentation shared with families. We enjoy providing family nights to spend time engaging families and provide emailed newsletters to keep families up to date with life inside our service..
Outside, we have two large play spaces, surrounded by bush, both with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We provide a balance of manmade and natural play equipment and surfaces. We have plenty to test and challenge the children, while letting their imaginations roam in their natural surrounds. Our outdoor spaces offer sandpits, a big deck, veggie patches, worm farm, a dry creek bed, fairy gardens and lots of natural shade and open space, there is no shortage of things to do.
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.
Community is important to us and through scheduled visits to the Centre, we are able to engage with, the community Library bus, the council and their garbage trucks as well as visits from emergency services, school excursions and much more, allowing your children to participate in events and activities throughout the year.
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.
