About Goodstart Ferntree Gully
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Ferntree Gully is situated in close proximity to parks, local primary schools, Mountain Gate and Knox Westfield Shopping centres. There is a bus stop right out the front of our centre and train stations within a 5 minute drive.
All our educators are qualified and dedicated with some of our educators being at our child care centre for 8 years or more. We believe that the first five years are the most important in a child’s development which is evident in our programs which are based on the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards.
Inside, colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
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 three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have a range of pets from chickens which we raised from a chicken hatching program, rabbits, birds and fish. And throughout our four yards we have a balance of manmade and natural surfaces, sandpits, forts, vege patches, sensory gardens, herb gardens, an undercover area and fairy gardens.
We also have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods.
Community is also 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.
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
