About Goodstart Derrimut
At Goodstart Early Learning Derrimut, children are encouraged to explore their environment and learn through problem solving and open ended experiences.
Children's art work is displayed throughout the centre and adds to our colourful atmosphere.
Our Pre school room is currently run by a Kinder teacher and an assistant. The children are currently learning the Alphabet, days of the week, numbers, and how to recognise and write their own names. In term four we introduce lunch box days to help encourage the children to open their lunch and prepare them for the big journey at school.
Our centre encourages children to build friendships with peers and educators through a variety of play experiences. All experiences are planned to build each child's self esteem and to assist in helping them to feel valued and worthy. Our centre has implemented the Early Years Learning Framework.
Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Pre-Kinder 3-4 years

Melissa Karczemski Centre Director
I’m Melissa and I’m the Centre Director at Goodstart Derrimut
I have been in the Early Childhood Industry since 1997 and become a Centre Director in 2002 and currently hold my Diploma in Children Services.
Here at Goodstart Derrimut our focus is to provide a safe and secure environment for our children, families and educators.
I believe that all children should be given the best positive start in life.
As a mother of two children, our children are our biggest treasures in life. So, to leave them in our care, I know just how important it is all to families.
We at Goodstart Derrimut have an open-door policy. Our families are more than welcome to visit us and their children at all times
