About our new centre
Our purpose built centre provides much-needed care for local families. Featuring six large and spacious learning spaces over two levels and a separate nursery sleep room, the centre provides a modern yet home-like naturally inspired environment.
All age-based learning spaces have direct access to our outdoor nature-based designed play space, with sensory gardens, pebbled creek beds, tee pees, pergola, digging patch and two large sandpits. Our beautiful outdoor dining hub provides a dedicated space for meals with our onsite kitchen with child-height servery allows our cook to serve and engage our children in cooking and preparing meals.
Our early learning programs cater to each child's stage of development, from six weeks of age to Kindergarten-aged children. Curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and is tailored to your child's individual interests.
Our family lounge is also available for our families to access during our opening hours - we welcome our families to take a moment to enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee.
Meals are cooked onsite in our commercial kitchen by our Centre Cook and prepared fresh each day - meals include a light breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.

Sri Gorla Centre Director
Hi, my name is Sri Gorla and it is a privilege to introduce myself as the Centre Director of Goodstart Early Learning Caulfield.
I have been in the early learning sector since 2008 and I hold an Advanced Diploma of Early Childhood Education. I have worked across all age groups throughout my career. I slowly worked my way up through the ranks over 13 years. I’ve been a Centre Director since 2019.
My Philosophy is to provide children with a happy, safe and stimulating environment. I am passionate about giving more opportunities to children where they are encouraged to learn, create, imagine, discover, problem solve and play. I strongly believe that a quality early learning experience in the first years of life will have an enduring impact on children and their wellbeing. I also believe that ongoing communication with families is necessary to create a positive environment for our children.
I always make sure that the operation of the service is running professionally, effective and to the benefit of the children, educators, and the families in our care. I work with a great team and together we provide high quality education and care for all the children at our Early Learning Centre.
I look forward to seeing you around the Centre, introducing you to my team and explain more about our commitment to your child’s early learning journey.
