About Goodstart East Bunbury
Goodstart Early Learning East Bunbury is a state of the art, purpose built early learning facility with five large, bright and airy rooms. We are located in a residential area, with the convenience of being close to main roads, local schools and shops.
We provide an all-inclusive and supportive environment, which allows children to explore, experiment and problem solve developing sustainable practices through recycling, reusing and reducing waste. Goodstart East Bunbury embraces multiculturalism and inclusive practices as both our teaching team and families bring a diverse mix of cultures and abilities to our service.
Each of our rooms are run by qualified staff including two Degree Qualified Early Childhood Teachers to help our Kindergarten and vacation care run smoothly and ensure that school transitions are meaningful.
All the rooms are set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework , with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
Communicating with families is of paramount importance and we encourage open communication using various mediums. Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre.
Outside we have a fun and stimulating environment with a balance of natural and manmade features including a vegie patch, natural garden spaces, sand pit, climbing frames, a bike track and plenty of trees for shade.
East Bunbury provides nutritionally balanced meals on a four week rolling menu which is displayed throughout our centre. Dietary requirements and preferences are catered for and supported to meet each family’s individual needs.

Tara Centre Director
Hi my name is Tara and I lead the wonderful team as Centre Director here at Goodstart Early Learning East Bunbury.
I have a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Certificate in Community Services. I have been in the childcare industry for 11years and have been working within Goodstart services for 10 of those years, my personal visions and aspirations align closely with those of Goodstart’s.
I am a mother to four wonderful children, after welcoming my first child, I changed my ways of thinking about early childhood education, and in my journey as a child care educator, considering what I wanted for my child and how this could relate to expectations and needs of other new parents looking for care for their children. As my family grew so did my passion for ensuring I gave everything I could to children and families in my care and supporting vulnerable families and children feel included and a part of a community and to build a sense of belonging during their journeys here at the centre.
I aim to lead my team in a way that ensures we continuously reflect and collaborate to move forward and upward in our journey here. As a leader it is my goal to support educators to slow down, and take in every moment, and interaction with the children and encourage them to use children’s voices to guide our practices, daily programs and learning spaces that are rich and meaningful.
Our children are our future and it is so important to me that as educators we empower them to drive and resource their own learning.
I encourage you to come on in and visit the centre and meet our wonderful team.
