Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Blair Athol opened in 2019. Our newly constructed centre features five separate, naturally inspired learning spaces, each with direct access to our landscaped designed outdoor environment providing children with the opportunity to move freely between the indoor and outdoor. Our environments have been specifically designed to engage, challenge and excite the children throughout all of their developmental stages.

Using the Early Years Learning Framework to guide our education program and scaffold children’s learning, our educators are passionate and committed to providing nurturing and simulating early learning environment.

Edel Flanagan Centre Director
Hello! My name is Edel and I am thrilled to join the Goodstart Blair Athol team. More importantly I am so excited to getting to know all of the families and children that attend our service.
I’m originally from Ireland and I’ve worked with children in Ireland, the UK and Australia since 2010. I hold an Honours Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education and Care as well as a Post–Graduate Certificate in Primary Education. I’ve worked in all areas of Preschool and Primary school education from assistant educator to centre management and my passion has always been to provide the best quality education and care of young children.
I strongly believe that each child is a mighty learner capable of many things and eager to learn. I hope to oversee the implementation of an educational program that respects children’s individuality, listens to their voices and supports their development while allowing them to thrive and enjoy their childhood.
I hope to build strong relationships with my team and the families and maintain a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment.
I strongly believe that communication is a key component of supporting our children. If you have any questions or issues please feel free to approach me at any time. I look forward to working with you and your children.
