Goodstart early Learning Child Care Centre Bondi Junction - Oxford Street West is a 65 place child care centre conveniently located on Level 6 of the Bondi Westfield Shopping Centre, with easy access to the Bondi Junction Terminal for those families who commute into the city as well as servicing the neighbouring suburbs of Woollahra, Tamarama and Edgecliff. We also have designated parking spaces allocated to our centre to enable a safe drop off for families. Our centre is secure and accessible with a pin code that is given only to our parents.
Our childcare centre is spacious and filled with natural light and our rooms are split into three age groups. We have two beautiful outdoor play areas for each age group at the centre.
Our educators are committed professionals who foster an ethos of respect and belonging. Our team is culturally diverse and this diversity translates into our educational programs. We also encourage families to participate in the development of our responsive program.
We have a strong focus on supporting the holistic development of each child. Our program builds learning skills, early literacy and numeracy, life skills and social and emotional resilience. We also offer extra-curricular experiences on a weekly basis to support our program.
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.
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. Our playground has sandpits, a wooden boat, climbing equipment, compost bin, worm farm and vegetable patch, climbing equipment and lots of space to run.
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.
Our on-site cook is a qualified Hospitality Chef who provides nutritious meals daily and caters for a number of special dietary requirements. Our cook creates the meals on our menu using a mixture of vegetarian and non-vegetarian ingredients using the Long Day Care Menu Planning Method developed by the NSW Department of Health.
At our child care centre we build strong connections with families and children through a Primary Care Educator approach.
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 meeting you and your family soon! Come in and meet the team, take a tour and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.
