About Goodstart Coburg
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Coburg is conveniently located close to transport, community facilities, shops and schools.
We have long standing diploma-qualified educators and a Centre Director that has been with the child care centre for more than 10 years. Our highly qualified and experienced educators are warm, friendly and create a welcoming environment within the centre. Our team consists of only ten staff members who are friendly, very approachable and loved by all the parents.
Inside, our rooms are set up to reflect the daily programs and are in line with out Early Years Learning Framework curriculum. We promote strong communication with parents, and use Storypark to ensure families are kept informed about achievements. We also work hard to make sure the individual needs and interests of each child are factored into the learning programs.
We communicate with families in a variety of mediums including a daily communication table at the centre. Each child receives a learning journal displaying their journey at Goodstart Coburg including milestones and creative pieces. We also invite families to participate in daily programs, sharing things such as special talents or even sharing an insight into their culture.
Goodstart Coburg underwent a playground upgrade in mid-2014, creating additional natural space for the children to enjoy. We focus heavily on providing children with outdoor experiences which are fun but challenging and a mix of natural and manmade features offer stimulating learning opportunities.
Working with our community is an important part of enhancing our learning program and through this our child care centre offers educational and fun incursions.
Lots of play means hungry tummies, so our centre’s cook provides delicious nutritional meals which cater to the special dietary or cultural requirements of our children.
Goodstart Coburg looks forward to meeting you and your family when you visit our centre.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Pre-Kinder 3-4 years
Christine Andricciola Centre Director
Hi there! My name is Christine and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Coburg. I have been an early learning educator since 1997, starting in the industry as an assistant.
I have worked with all age groups and in a variety of roles and I have a Diploma in Children’s Services.
Since becoming the centre director here in 2004, I have worked to ensure clear and open lines of communication between the centre and our families. Our ability to give children the highest quality in early learning relies on forming partnerships with families.
My vision for providing care is shared by my experienced and dedicated team. That is to provide the best possible start in life and our goal is to provide quality, inclusion and stability for all our children. The early years of life are vital for human development and we strive to achieve this in collaboration with the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standard.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.
