About Goodstart Blacktown
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Blacktown is conveniently located near St Patrick’s Primary School and Walters Road Public School, and is a short drive from the local shopping complex.
Our Blacktown child care centre consists of two rooms catering for children from two to five years of age. Many of our children and families are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and we are lucky to have educators who can communicate with new families in their native tongue, ensuring all children feel secure and supported upon starting at our centre.
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.
It is important to us that we educate our children about sustainability and looking after the environment. Our child care centre has a vegetable patch which children water daily, and we incorporate this fresh produce into our menu when it is ready to be eaten. We also focus on recycling and have specialised recycling bins in each room where children are taught to place scrap paper, cardboard and other recyclable materials.
Our relationship with the broader community is also important to us, helping us to enrich the children’s development program. Through visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events, we are able to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family and learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.
