About Goodstart Coffs Harbour
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Coffs Harbour is located close to the CBD in a residential area, making the daily drop-off and pick-up convenient and stress-free. We are an 86 place centre, that caters for children aged six weeks to six years in rooms from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool.
With experienced, qualified and long-service carers and educators, we can work with your child to ensure their individual needs and interests are catered to, while providing them with the highest-quality early learning within the Early Years Learning Framework. Each room is age appropriate and enables your child to develop to their fullest potential. We have a huge number of resources and toys which assist your child in their development.
Outdoors, we have two spacious playgrounds, each with big gardens where we grow vegetables and herbs, sandpits and natural surround to provide experience and sensory-based learning around themes of sustainability, diversity and the environment.
Our centre prides itself on its links with our diverse community and by welcoming a number of refugee families into our centre family, our children enjoy the opportunity to learn about different cultures and ways of life. Our parents and families are our most important partners in the children’s learning and through open, clear communication we are able to ensure your child has every opportunity to access highest-quality early education.
Our team prides itself on a close knowledge of children's development and behaviours. We strive to create a welcoming and fun atmosphere for all the children within the centre, providing plenty of choice and stimulation.
We would welcome the opportunity to welcome you to our centre! Come down and have a look, meet our wonderful staff and discuss how we can help give your child a great start in early learning.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
