About Goodstart Bondi Junction Oxford Street North
Goodstart early Learning Child Care Centre Bondi Junction - Oxford Street North is located on the sixth floor of the bustling Westfield shopping centre.
Our purpose built facility is conveniently located in Westfield Bondi Junction, providing easy access to Bondi Junction Terminal for those families who commute into the city as well as servicing the neighbouring suburbs of Woollahra, Tamarama and Edgecliff. We have designated parking spaces allocated to Goodstart families for quick drop off/collection on R1 of Westfield car park. The centre has high level security, accessible only by video intercom or pin entry.
Our centre prides itself on providing a high quality early learning environment that is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing. Our vision is for Goodstart Bondi North to become an extension of your family, and we are committed to supporting each child to reach their full potential.
Given that the first five years are critical to a child’s development, our childcare centre is especially focused on fostering nurturing and responsive relationships that support healthy brain development in children, as well as better outcomes for life. To do this effectively, our centre adopts the key educator approach. From the time we first meet your family, your child will have a special ‘someone’ to support the development of a secure attachment.
The indoor learning environments are modern and thoughtfully designed in line with the Early Year's Learning Framework, to enrich learning for all children. Our preschool programs are delivered by university trained early childhood teachers, who offer developmentally appropriate and responsive learning experiences that prepare children for school and life.
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. We have forts, a small wooden boat, sandpits, slides, worm farm, vege patch and a play kitchen.
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.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family. Come in and take a look around, meet the team and explore how we can support your early learning journey.

Jo Conlon Centre Director
Hello, my name is Jo Conlon, I’m the Bondi Area Lead and Director at Goodstart Bondi Junction Oxford Street North.
I’ve worked in the early learning profession for 27 years in varying capacities and have been at Goodstart since 2010. I’ve been a part of the Goodstart Bondi Community since 2012, as a Senior Educator, Centre Director of all 3 Bondi Centres, Area manager, and now Area Lead and Centre Director.
I am inspired by Loris Malaguzzi who was the founder of Reggio Emilia’s educational approach; I too believe that all children are not only resourceful and intelligent but individuals who are independent and capable of doing whatever it is they set their mind to. I was privileged to have the opportunity to attend a Reggio Emilia study tour in New Zealand in 2017 and am hoping to visit Reggio Emilia in coming years.
My passion is natural, inviting, learning environments in and outdoors, with provocations for children and educators learning. I believe in providing every child with strong foundations to develop a lifelong love of learning as we know the first five years of a child’s life are a vital time.
We have a strong focus on meaningful connections with children, families, community and other professionals. As an extension of your family, the goal at Goodstart Bondi North is to provide an environment where children can flourish.
The team I am fortunate to work with share my passion for seeing children meet their potential. They are dedicated, professional, experienced and highly qualified.
We invite you to come and visit our centre to meet our team and to see for yourself our commitment to your child’s early learning journey.
