About Goodstart Endeavour Hills Hanna Drive
Goodstart Endeavour Hills Hanna Drive is located in a quiet and secure residential area that is close to schools, a shopping complex and public transport.
We offer only the highest quality of care for all children that access our service. Our qualified educators ensure that each child is allocated a key educator upon enrolment allowing time to build a rapport and connection that models a positive relationship to the child, supporting the development of trust. The parent is fundamental in bridging this relationship between the child and the educator, sharing information and experiences with the educator in the child’s presence.
Our play based curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten – 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 and equipped to face the next chapter of their journey.
We use Storypark, an app which enables us to maintain consistent and clear communications with families. In turn, we are better placed to support a child in their learning journey, ensure parents have peace of mind, and have live running documentation of the the children’s developments, milestones and achievements.
Our playgrounds are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with sandpits, a vege patch, climbing fort, balancing beams and lots of space and 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.
We also have a cook at the centre providing delicious and nutritious meals for the children. The menu is reviewed regularly based on feedback and input from parents, educators and children. Rest assured that all dietary restrictions (whether they be medical, cultural or religious) are all catered for.
Our local community is very important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity. We pride ourselves on our fantastic art displays, creativity and being a home away from home for all of the children in our care.
There is nothing more important to a parent and a family than the peace of mind that your child is in good hands – Please feel free to contact us now for a tour of the centre and we can embark on this journey together.

Candyce Hepponstall Centre Director
My name is Candyce and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Endeavour Hills Hanna Drive. I have worked in the early learning sector for the last 18 years, 13 of which I have spent as a Centre Director with Goodstart Early Learning and I hold an Advanced Diploma in Community Sector Management and a Diploma in Children’s Services.
Over the years I have worked with all age groups and I have been involved in all aspects of child development. I enjoy working with children and I believe in providing a warm, comfortable, relaxed learning environment where parents and children can feel a sense of belonging.
Being a mother of two primary school aged children, I understand the importance of quality education and early learning and the impact that it has on our children from an early age. I recognize that time together as a family is highly beneficial for the growth and development of our children and the team at Goodstart Endeavour Hills Hanna Drive will work in partnership with you to ensure that we can support you and your families to give your child the best possible start in life.
I look forward to working with you and your family in the future.
