About Goodstart Blue Haven
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Blue Haven is a 70 place centre conveniently located opposite Blue Haven Public School and a short walk to the Blue Haven Community Centre.
We cater for children from six weeks to five years, in two buildings, with the preschool building separate to the main building. Inside, our rooms are set up to ensure the children’s individual needs and interests are met, while working to the Early Years Learning Framework in curriculum delivery. Outside, we have spacious and stimulating playground areas which encourage the children to develop understanding around areas of nature, environment and sustainability.
Our nursery has its own separate playground within the main playground to ensure they are able to interact with their siblings and older children throughout the day; while still having a safe and separate area to explore.
The educators at our centre take pride in building strong relationships with all children and their families. We believe that families are the most important influence on a child’s learning and development, and encourage families to work with us in partnership. This relationship building is cemented by our key educator approach.
Our documentation of each child’s learning journey with us is done via Storypark which is an online medium where parents and educators can share information about their child ensuring there is a holistic approach to each child’s learning.
Our centre is part of a program within Goodstart which is designed to Enhance Children’s Outcomes (EChO) and as such we are developing an integrated approach to early education and have access to a family worker from Benevolent Society, Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist and an Art Therapist who work with educators to increase their knowledge and skills in working with children and families.
Come in, say hello, and have a look around our centre. We would welcome the opportunity to be part of your family’s journey.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Michelle Acreman Centre Director
Hi there! I’m Michelle and I am the director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Blue Haven.
I have a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood and a Graduate Diploma of Special Education. I have been in the child care sector for more than 25 years, and a centre director for the past 10 years.
In April 2015 I took up the Centre Director role at Blue Haven and I am privileged to lead a team of highly qualified and experienced early learning carers and educators.
At the heart of my early learning philosophy is a belief that each child deserves to be part of a quality program that sees them as an individual and supports their growth and development. This is only achievable through developing relationships with children, families, educators and the community.
Come in and say hello! Take a tour of our centre and let’s sit down and discuss how we can be a part of your child’s early learning journey.
