About Goodstart Flora Hill
Goodstart Flora Hill is located centrally in Bendigo, close to both the Bendigo Market Place and Kennington Village shopping centres.
We are a 70 place service that prides itself on a very low staff turnover and a commitment to the best outcomes for every child.
We employ the “Key Educator” model for practice allowing us to build strong and consistence relationships with children and families.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating 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.
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 age appropriate play spaces and equipment, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability.
We encourage our children to develop an appreciation for the natural world and the environment around them by providing resources that reflect the local Eco-system, and by giving the child time to explore, create, wonder and learn at their own pace.
Community is also important to us. The Bendigo community is resilient and proud of its past, values we look to instil in our children. 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:
