About Goodstart Flagstone
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Flagstone is conveniently located next to Flagstone State School, and nearby a range of other local amenities. We have been a proud member of the Flagstone community for over seven years.
Our centre caters for children aged from six weeks to five years, and features spacious rooms with a large outdoor play area. We pride ourselves on our staff and have built a strong level of continuity within our service. Our educators all have children of their own, and recognise the importance of family within our centre. All of our staff are fully qualified, and share a united passion for early learning.
We are greatly involved in communication with our families, and in addition to verbal communication utilise emails, newsletters, and daily photos displays of the activities the children participate in.
Our Storypark platform 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.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Natural surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with sandpits, vege gardens, teepees, yarning circle, bike track, dry creek bed, fort, verandahs 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 centre is well-recognised throughout the community for our fundraising efforts and the creative programs that the children are involved in. We maintain particularly close ties to Flagstone State School, ensuring our pre-schoolers are well-prepared for school by the time they leave the centre.
We look forward to meeting you and being a part of your child’s early education!

Kathleen Puschmann Centre Director
Welcome to Goodstart Early Learning Flagstone. My name is Kathleen and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Flagstone. I have been in the Early Learning industry since 1993 and hold a Diploma in childcare and education. My time in the industry has allowed me to work across all early learning age groups.
I believe the first five years are the most important in any child’s development and I take great pleasure in helping today’s young children to develop the skills to become strong, independent leaders of our future. I believe effective communication between families and staff is vital, so I encourage the families at this centre to have a voice, share their ideas and join in the learning with their child. As a mum myself, I am passionate about a strong social and emotional development.
I look forward to meeting yourself and your child!
