About Goodstart Bakewell
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Bakewell is located in a residential area, close to schools, local shops and community services. We are convenient enough to take some of the daily stress and angst out of the drop-off and pick-up.
We are committed to developing positive learning outcomes for our children. We approach everything with a profound and personnel respect for the individual, their culture and beliefs. We create and supervise warm, safe and dynamic environments that the children can enjoy as they grow and learn along with their families.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, 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. During 2017 our large natural outdoor yard received an upgrade and now includes a river bed rock pool, bike track, sandpit and swing area. Our play areas are inviting and fun with lots of shade to help beat the summer heat! Given our climate, we can enjoy the outdoors all year around.
We also have a qualified cook, who provides all nutritional meals for the children throughout the day. All meals are nutritionally balanced.
Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
Come in and say hello! We would love to welcome you and your family into our centre.
