About Goodstart Clayfield
Goodstart Early Learning Clayfield was constructed in 1986. The owner/operator at the time was inspired by his own upbringing and designed the centre to reflect this. It is modelled on the "Queenslander" style houses in the area. This is to assist with making the children feel like they are being cared for in a more home-like environment.
The owner at the time had many memories of playing in the local "Kalinga" park and the centre also features a cave for playing hide and seek and a little man-made creek down the side of the centre, which recycles the water used to help embed sustainable practices. As regulations have changed over the years, parts of the centre have been updated to maintain changing safety standards. We've recently had a complete upgrade of our junior playspace for our nursery aged children to enjoy and it features a sandpit, covered decking for outdoor learning and meals and a natural creek bed for exploration.
We pride ourselves on being closely connected to our local community and making our families feel part of our little community. We offer family play dates in the park on weekends and date nights so our parents can connect with other parents.
We invite you to come and visit us anytime. We would love to show you around our cozy, friendly centre! We look forward to meeting you!

Denisa Louzecka Centre Director
Ahoj (Hello), my name is Denisa and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Clayfield. I am originally from the Czech Republic. I have been living in Australia since 2011. I have been working for Goodstart over 5 years.
I’m passionate about children and early education as I believe that the first five years of a child’s life is crucial for setting children up on the right path for successful life. I enjoy watching the children grow and develop and having the opportunity to be actively engaged in their learning.
As a Centre Director, I am fortunate to lead a great team of qualified educators who are dedicated to provide the best possible start to all of our children. Here at Clayfield centre we have a wonderful mix of educators, families and children from all over Australia and the world.
We invite you to come and visit our centre to meet our team and to see for yourself our commitment to your child’s early learning journey. I look forward to meeting you all.
