About Goodstart Elwood
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Elwood is located in a residential area, which is safe and quiet but still convenient enough to make for a stress-free daily drop-off and pick-up.
We offer care to all age groups from as young as six weeks up to school age. We are open every day from Monday to Friday, except for public holidays.
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 sandpits, worm farm, vege patch, water tank, mud kitchen, bike path, gardens, a stage, cubbyhouse and lots of shade. 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.
Our cook freshly prepares and serves warm meals and snacks on the premises, taking into consideration any special dietary requirements. Our qualified and trained staff implement a developmental program that enhances and challenges each child's individual learning and promotes a safe and happy environment.
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.
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.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
