About Goodstart Chadstone
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Chadstone is located within the grounds of the Holmesglen TAFE and in close proximity to local schools, shops and transport.
Our centre is beautiful, colourful and has an inviting and homely feel. We have a great multicultural community in our surrounding suburbs and we are located right next to the Holmesglen TAFE, just a short walk to Holmesglen train station.
We have a great, stable team at Goodstart Chadstone where the majority of our educators have been with the centre for four years or more. All staff hold their first aid certificate and many staff speak languages such as Hindi, Mandarin, Greek, and Tamil, just to name a few. Our educators take pride in setting up their rooms with displays of children's artwork to create a warm and friendly environment.
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.
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 three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment.We have sandpits, a dirt pit, vege patch, cubby house, garden beds, rock beds, natural and manmade play surfaces and lots of shade.
We also have a cook at the centre providing tasty and nutritious meals for the children when tummies start to growl.
Our team work hard to ensure that the children in our care are safe, well-supervised and challenged in their in learning on a daily basis. We have built strong relationships with our families, which reflects our philosophy of working alongside families as the primary caregivers and respecting their individual cultural beliefs and traditions. Our families also love to get involved with extracurricular events and festivities that focus on multiculturalism and embrace diversity.
Come in and say hello! We would love to welcome you and your family into our centre.
