About Goodstart Darwin
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Darwin is located in a convenient and easy-to-find pocket of the city area, close to a major shopping complex, amenities and community services.
We pride ourselves on the happy atmosphere that we create with our friendly educators. You can feel it as soon as you walk through the front door. The location is very central and we have families from the city and from down the track attending our service.
We have many long term educators that are relaxed and greet every parent as we see them. All educators are studying towards their Certificate III, Diploma & Advanced Diploma.
Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
This is made simpler through our intuitive Storypark platform, which enables us to maintain consistent and clear communications with families. That means we are better placed to support a child in their learning journey, ensure parents have peace of mind, and time stamp the children’s developments, milestones and achievements.
Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with many and varied areas and equipment pieces for the children to enjoy. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability – while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam.
A major focus for our centre is how working with the broader community can help us enrich the children’s learning experience. Through visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events, we are able to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.
Art and music experiences - as well as other extra-curricular activities - are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We look forward to meeting you and your family soon! Come in and meet the team, take a tour and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.
