About Goodstart Ashmore
At Goodstart's Ashmore Child Care Centre we inspire learning through positive experiences creating a world of wonder. Our centre is centrally located on a quiet suburban street next to beautiful parkland. We have been strong established part of the Ashmore community for many years.
We cater to the early learning needs of children aged from 6 weeks to 5 years old, including a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program. We offer before and after school care for children up to 12 years, including school pick-ups and drop-offs exclusively for Ashmore State School.
Our child care centre has an open plan design and a welcoming atmosphere, and features two large separate playgrounds for different age groups. We have a dedicated and passionate team of professional educators, some of whom have been with the centre for nearly a decade. We work closely together and support each other to provide high quality care to every child at the centre in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework. Our educators regularly engage in professional development opportunities to maintain knowledge and skills.
Communication is important to us and we regularly distribute newsletters and notices to keep families up-to-date on centre activities. We engage in quality face-to-face conversations with parents, each room in the centre contains a changing display of daily activities.
We provide many opportunities for families to liaise with each other and their wider community, holding regular function days and encouraging family participation. Additionally, we hold annual parent information evenings. As a centre, we are continually seeking input from families to help us achieve the best possible learning outcomes for children in our care. Vacancies fill up quickly so come and join our family today!
We can’t wait to meet you!
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Anna Reid Centre Director
My name is Anna. I have lived in Queensland since 1997 with my husband and 2 sons. I have been involved in Early Education since 1999. Over the last few years I have continued my journey as a Centre Director for family owned and corporate services. I have an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services, Certificate 4 in Business Management and Bachelor of Family and Child Studies.
I believe children learn and develop best in a diverse environment with family and community involvement creating harmonious learning reflective of child directed interest. During my time in early education I have recognised and implemented learning through play, with connection to key learning needed for lifelong learning and development, which is acknowledged by national standards of teaching in early childhood settings. I aim to support our existing and new families and strive to build lasting positive relationships with you all. I believe in an open door opportunity to encourage connection with families.
I work closely with the team at Goodstart Early Learning Ashmore to implement and maintain policies and procedures which are uniquely developed incorporating all aspects of the nationally recognised educational framework “EYLF”, quality care using key principles of National Quality Standards (NQS) and Australian Children’s Education and Quality Authority, (ACECQA) guides. I recognise the importance of regulation that encompasses a high quality service while adapting to meet the needs of our unique centre. I look forward to meeting with you and welcome any queries.
