About Goodstart Dunsborough
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Dunsborough is located in a wonderful regional setting, next to schools, shops and transport!
Our educators are enthusiastic about teaching and about developing effective relationships with your children. They are committed to the goals of education for sustainability and life-long learning while maintaining an open mind to ensure adaptability, always looking for new ideas and teaching strategies to suit each individuals needs in this ever changing world.
Children learn by socialising, watching, being, doing and copying and here at Goodstart Dunsborough we promote this by providing a flexible and adaptable curriculum that is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework. We want you and your children to feel a sense of belonging and ownership within our child care centre.
Our educators provide a warm and caring environment where bonds are created, enabling your children to gain the trust of our educators, which in turn enables your children to become effective and confident learners through exploration, commitment, enthusiasm and persistence. Collaborative relationships with our families lead to open communications, therefore allowing the children’s needs and wants to be supported and achieved. We understand that our families and educators are our local community and this fosters a strong link between centre and home.
Here at Goodstart Dunsborough we use an online program called Storypark which allows you to see and learn more of your child's day. Our educators will send you updates, photos and videos while they work with your child. The program gives you a better understanding of your child's learning, you can input into the program too and it’s a great way for you to engage with us. You can also invite family members and friends who are anywhere in the world.
Venture outside, and we have a wonderful world of fun and natural play, with a balance of natural and manmade elements to help stoke the children's imaginations. We have lots of climbing equipment, vege gardens, large games, sandpits, bikes, pet chickens and guinea pigs and lots of shade and indoor-outdoor pace.
Our educators are part of our local Dunsborough community and are valued for their individuality and culture. As a team we go above and beyond to ensure your children are central to everything we do. We have a commitment to continuous improvement through development and training for our educators and enjoy working in partnership with you to provide the best care possible for you and your children.
We invite you to come and visit our centre to meet our team and to see for yourself our commitment to your child’s early learning journey.

Joanne Chapman Centre Director
Hi there! My name is Jo, I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Dunsborough.
I moved to Dunsborough in 2007, originally from the UK, and I have been in the child care industry since 1996. I have an Advanced Diploma in Early Childhood and throughout my career I have had the opportunity to gain experience across all age groups and a number of different areas and roles.
I pride myself as a Centre Director and work in line with our centre vision:
Together with respect, laughter, encouragement, support and love, we as professional educators can provide positive and inspirational care and support to each other as a team and the children in our care. Influencing each other to be the best we can be creating everlasting memories and inspiring our lives and who we become as individuals.
The team I am fortunate to lead is experienced and dedicated, highly qualified and committed to delivering the highest quality in early learning.
We would love for you and your family to come along and share our vision. Come in and explore how we can set your child on a pathway to lifelong learning.
