Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Dalby
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Dalby is located in a rural community, three hours south-east of Brisbane. We are right in the heart of our community, a block from the major shopping centre and although we are on a major road, we are tucked away, safe and sound, making for a convenient daily drop-off and pick-up for our families.
We are a 74-place centre which caters for childen in rooms from the Nursery through to Kindergarten / Preschool. Being that our building was once a church and hall, we have a homeliness and welcoming atmosphere and our stained glass windows are a sight to behold for our curious, exploring children. Inside, we provide a safe and fun environment focusing on sensory experience through our curriculum which is developed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework and the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines.
Outside we are fortunate to have all-weather play areas which are handy when we get heavy rain or on those hot summer days. Our open playgrounds have lots of shade, forts, sandpits, a herb and vege patch for the children to tend to and plenty of experience and sensory based play areas.
We have a great team of dedicated educators who pride themselves on delivering a fun and educational learning experience for each and every child in our care; and every child’s individual needs, strengths and interests are factored into their own personal programs.
We believe in open and clear communication with our families and children to ensure we meet those individual needs, and we then see then develop and grow into confident, resilient and capable lifelong learners.
We would welcome you to our centre! Come and have a look around and see how we can work together to provide your child with the highest quality early learning experience.
Hello there! I’m Nancy and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Dalby. I have been in the early learning industry since 2004. I have experience across all age groups and I have an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and a Certificate IV in Frontline Business Management.
My aim is to create an indoor and outdoor environment that is natural, inviting, inclusive and rich in learning possibilities. I believe that a stimulating environment with resources that enhance positive learning are valuable in promoting and encouraging children to evaluate, problem solve, experiment, explore and discover.
I am privileged to lead a team which is experienced and highly-qualified, and we share a common goal to provide programs that are balanced and actively engage the children. We cater to all areas of early development including fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, social, emotional and language skills, tailored around the child's needs and interests. I also believe in building strong relationships that support the children and families in our centre and our community.
Come in and say hello! Meet the team and have a look around the centre. I’d love to discuss your child’s early learning opportunities.
