About our new centre
With direct, easy access to the centre from Main North Road, our centre provides much-needed care for local families. Featuring five learning spaces over a single level and a large tranquil nursery sleep room, Goodstart Blair Athol will provide a modern, yet home-like, naturally inspired environment.
Each age-based room includes thoughtfully designed learning spaces such as an engaging home corner, a creative construction space, a quiet reading area and an art studio to inspire your child's learning journey. Each room also has direct access to our outdoor nature-based designed play spaces with water feature flowing down a dry creek through to the sandpit. Other features include sensory gardens, natural logs designed to coordinate with custom rope of different variations to develop gross motor skills and a lookout deck with elevated views of the area.
With a highly experienced team on board, each room runs a program for the children which is both age and developmentally appropriate. The early learning programs are structured around various learning areas - primarily based on the Early Years' Learning Framework - with associated learning outcomes. There is a large emphasis on play-based learning and the importance of language, communication, social and physical development. Curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and is tailored to your child's individual interests.
Our family lounge is also available for our families to access during our opening hours - we welcome our families to take a moment to enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee.
Drop off and pick up car spaces are located right outside the centre’s doors for your convenience.
