About Goodstart Cheltenham
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Cheltenham is a heritage listed building located in the heart of Cheltenham, within walking distance of Southland shopping centre, in a quiet tree lined street with ample car parking.
We are a 90 place centre with five bright spacious rooms and three playgrounds.
All of our staff are well trained and we have an extremely low turnover. Within our team we have a variety of languages and backgrounds, including Russian, Spanish, Greek, French, Indian, Arabic and Sri Lankan. We utilise Key Educator Relationships to strengthen bonds with children and families.
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.
Warm, welcoming and holistic environments 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 events and emailed updates, 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 are equipped with sandpit and water feature, mud patch, bike tracks, vege patch, worm farm, water trough and an undercover verandah – as well as lots of shade. We also have a lovely community garden, and 4 silky bantam chickens that we collect and utilise their eggs.
We provide we provide meals, nappies, hats and sunscreen.
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 would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family and explore how we can support you on this early learning adventure.
