Goodstart Forest Lake Centennial Way is made extra secure for your little treasures, with pin pad entry at our front door.
We are a friendly and caring centre with dedicated and qualified educators, many of whom have worked within Goodstart Early Learning and our centre for a number of years. All our educators are committed to providing the highest standard of care for your children and work to create a caring and nurturing environment.
Each age group works to a program developed to best satisfy the individual and group needs within the room. This ensures that all children are provided with a positive and engaging environment in which to explore and develop their abilities.
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. 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. Our four yards have sandpits, fort, swings, slides, undercover verandah, mud pit, herb garden, vege patch, worm farm, chicken coop, a secret garden and lots of shade.
As a team we take pride in the presentation of our centre and enjoy welcoming our children into bright, educational rooms. All rooms have air conditioning and modern facilities to make your child’s experience as comfortable as possible.
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.
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 warmly welcome new families, so please stop by! We would love to explore how we can support you and your child on their pathway to lifelong learning.
