About Goodstart Eumundi
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Eumundi is situated in the centre of our town on the Sunshine Coast, close to local shops and schools as well as transport routes and community services.
We provide care to children from the age of 15 months through to five years. Our child care centre is opposite the local primary school which we have close connections with.
The centre provides the children with the opportunity to become active learners by offering a clean and stimulating environment that caters to an individualised and holistic approach to education. We offer the Early Years Learning Framework. Our centre's goal is for each child to become a part of the Goodstart Early Learning Eumundi family; to feel safe and secure in their environment, and develop appropriate life/social skills which will make them happy and confident little people.
Educators at our child care centre are highly passionate and experienced and are mindful of children’s and family’s needs. Our educators boast varying teaching experiences from a wide area of diverse learning, which taps into theorists and cultures.
Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Toddler 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 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, mud kitchen, worm farm, compost bin, cubby house, swings and lots of shade across our two playgrounds. 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.
Many of our families are market stall holders at our famous Eumundi markets, which is a big part of our community.
Working with the broader community helps 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 welcome you to come and have a look at our beautiful child care centre and explore how we can support you and your child.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Karen Prime Centre Director
My name is Karen and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Eumundi. I immigrated to Australia from the UK in 2005 with my family. I have had over 30 years’ experience in the childcare sector, 16 years as a director.
I have worked with all age groups and have been involved in all aspects of child development.
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family and discussing how we can support you and your child on the pathway to lifelong learning.
