About Goodstart Belair
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Belair is located in a residential area close to local schools, shops, community facilities, public transport and main roads.
Our smaller size gives us a warm, family feel. We have been operating as a child-care facility for more than 20 years and have strongly established ties to the local community.
We have three main rooms: a nursery catering to children from 6 weeks to 2 years of age, a toddler room for children aged 2-3 years and a kindy room for those aged 3-5 years. Each room offers a child focused program of learning experiences based on the Early Years Learning Framework.
Our Kindy room also offers the Universal Access Kindergarten program. Our long serving staff are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to each and every child in the centre. We aim to create a friendly and safe space where every child can feel a sense of belonging and we welcome the participation and support of family and community members.
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 a beautiful indigenous garden, created for the centre with the help and guidance of local families, We also have edible garden areas with lots of veges and flowers. A fort, sandpits, lots of shade and plenty of room for exploring means our children are given every chance to let their imagination roam.
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 look forward to welcoming you and your family. Come in and take a look around, meet the team and explore how we can support your early learning journey.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Sharon Chant Centre Director
Hello there! My name is Sharon and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Belair.
I have been working here at the centre since 1997 and have experienced many roles during this time. Having been a part of this community for so long gives me a real sense of joy as I am able to see families grow and develop through the centre and beyond.
I am passionate about our vision which is that every child will be respected, supported and heard, every day. Including the children’s voice in their learning and environment is very important to me. I welcome the participation of families and community members in our centre experiences.
The team I am privileged to work with shared my belief that children have an unending capacity for learning. We encourage an atmosphere where the children are comfortable exploring, enquiring and engaging and it is my job to develop and nurture a relationship of trust and security with the children and their families.
We warmly welcome new families, so please stop by! We would love to explore how we can support you and your child on their pathway to lifelong learning.
