About Goodstart Blackburn South
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Blackburn South is a purpose built child care centre located in a residential area close to schools and shops; quiet and safe but also convenient for the daily drop-off and pick-up.
It is 60 place centre split into four rooms. Our educators are all qualified, dedicated and passionate who have worked here between two and ten years. They have many memories to share and represent themselves as a big warm family who love caring for and educating children. We treat this centre as our home and take pride in what we do.
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.
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. Throughout our two areas we have sandpits, garden beds, vege patches, cubbyhouses, a worm farm and book corner.
We also have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods.
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 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.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
