Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Bentleigh East South Road
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Bentleigh East - South Road is a 60 place licensed centre located in a quiet residential area, close to several primary schools, secondary schools, public transport options and other community services.
We have 14 dedicated, long standing staff from a variety of multicultural backgrounds and our centre is proud to provide a Government Approved Kinder Program for children aged four to five. Our Kinder Teacher has an extensive knowledge of early childhood and provides an engaging and educational programme.
We have four brightly coloured play rooms, each with bathroom facilities, and three enticing playgrounds. Each room has a child focused, indoor/outdoor programme that supports the development and interests of all children, giving them the best start in life. Our curriculum is designed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, while also accounting for the child's individual needs and interests.
Our centre features a homely kitchen and a professional chef who is with us everyday. All food is bought to the centre and prepared for each day, making our meals extremely fresh and nutritious. Our four week menu incorporates all nutritional requirements for children and rotates each week, as well as seasonally.
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 areas for the Nursery, Toddler and Kindergarten / Preschool rooms, The yards have sandpits, natural and manmade play surfaces, dirt patches, vege patches, climbing forts, lots of shade and plenty of space for exploring.
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.
Drop in and say hello! We would love to make you and your family welcome and the centre and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.
