About Goodstart Boronia
Our centre is located in the leafy suburb of Boronia, Melbourne. The centre is easily accessible with bus stops right at our front door and we have loads of off-street parking. Our centre consists of trained and experienced educators, with a majority of us having the minimum qualification of our Diploma in Children’s Services.
We believe that children learn through play and our educators facilitate this learning by providing experiences based on the individual interests and strengths of each child.
Our goal is to ensure an environment that is highly inclusive by fostering each child’s development from where they are at, in all domains of development.
We believe the centre is part of the families’ community and all families are invited to actively involve themselves in the curriculum. Our open door policy encourages our families to stay and play, as well as inviting family participation through our various centre events, excursions, incursions, family days and social events.
Our centre offers newly renovated large outdoor environments for each age group. We embrace this resource by undertaking indoor/outdoor play daily. Our educators use outdoor time to implement activities which allow children time to develop both physically, socially and emotionally through play. A combination of intentional teaching experiences and free-play time for learning and development stimulates the children’s growing curiosities and supports their interests.
In our Kindergarten setting we provide a wide variety of incursions, once a month, at no extra cost. These range from drama workshops, to woodwork and sports sessions. We also provide some incursions across all age groups annually, such as animal visits. The Kindergarten group also go on a number of excursions away from the centre, some walking excursions and some longer trips by bus.

Alison Mirabella Centre Director
Hi there! I’m Alison, the Centre Director at Boronia in Melbourne, Victoria.
I have worked in the early learning industry since 2003 and have been with Goodstart since 2005. I transferred to Goodstart Boronia in 2016 and into the full time role of Centre Director.
I completed my Bachelor of Early Years Education through Swinburne in 2018 and am now in the process of gaining my full registration.
My vision is to provide high quality care to all children and families by ensuring their time at the centre is the best it can be.
I live locally in Kilsyth with my husband and we love going for coffee and eating out and enjoy finding new walking/bike tracks around the area.
I look forward to meeting you and your family, I would love for you to come and visit our centre.
