About Goodstart Flemington
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Flemington is a large centre conveniently located on Racecourse Road close to trams and other public transport and well in the proximity of the most sought-after schools in Flemington and Kensington.
Registered for up to 180 children a day, we certainly use the space – and the park-like environment is safe, fun and stimulating.
Even though Flemington is a suburb with high density residential planning, our centre is designed with large playgrounds connected to our indoor learning areas. This supports our children to have the opportunity to explore, discover and learn in expansive learning settings that are not limited to indoor settings.
We are a purpose-built centre, with dedicated indoor and outdoor learning facilities which caters to each age group. We have a Bush Tucker Garden, Native Indigenous Garden, Bee Pollinator Garden and a thriving Chicken Coup to support children not only learn about the world in which they live but also develop environmental and sustainable world knowledge.
We recognise every child as unique and with varying learning needs and we strongly advocate for the social inclusion of all children and their access to early learning. Our program centres around each children’s individual needs and is not limited to learning domains of Social and Emotional Wellbeing, Literacy and Numeracy, Physical Skill and STEM knowledge.
We offer 2 years of kinder. That's two years of continued high-quality early learning, playing and making friends. Everything your child needs to feel ready for school.
We also run a Bilingual Program to support children to stretch their cognitive skills and learn a language other than English. Our centre also emphasizes on supporting our Youngest Children to connect with, learn and become future advocates for First Nations Communities.
We use research-based evidence in our learning programs and our learning environments and programs are to the Early Years Learning Framework and the Environmental Rating Scales. We work closely with parents to ensure the individual needs, interests and strengths of the children is taken into account, developing learning goals to reflect the same. Using Story Park, a wonderful communication platform, we stay in close touch with families and ensure they are well informed about their children’s development and achievements.
Our rooms cater for Nursery to Kindergarten and when all that playing makes children hungry, we have an onsite Chef to cater to all dietary needs. Our menu is exciting, nutritious and supports our children to love meals.
Our biggest strength is our team and the strong and nurturing relationships they have with our children and families. This is what makes our centre special and we invest deeply in their professional development.
Our team members are all qualified, highly experienced and experienced. All educators hold Level 2 First Aid, Anaphylaxis Management and Red Nose Safe Sleeping Certificates.
We pride ourselves in our innovative and embedded safety practices and are proud recipients of Goodstart’s Goodies Awards for SAFETY and RECONCILLIATION in Victoria for 2021!
