Here at Goodstart Bundoora on Plenty Road, we believe children learn through play, play-based learning is one of the foundations of the early learning strategy.
Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
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 also have a cook at the centre providing tasty and nutritious meals for the children when tummies start to growl.
Our educators all hold Diplomas, Certificate III and Post Graduate qualifications as well as current working with children checks and Level 2 First Aid/Anaphylaxis Certificates, which are updated annually.
