Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Gatton
"Through forming strong partnerships with families in our diverse community we embrace learning opportunities for all children within a happy, and safe environment."
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Gatton is located in a quiet area set back from the road, with beautiful playgrounds shaded by trees. We offer our families a safe and convenient location, making the daily drop-off and pick-up as stress free as possible!
We offer play based programs to assist the children in their development – in rooms from the Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool. Our curriculum is developed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines. We encourage children to engage in a range of experiences, with emphasis on mathematics, English, computer skills and multicultural activities. Our rooms are all about safe, fun, stimulating learning opportunities and we tailor each child’s program to ensure their needs are met and their interests taken into account.
Outside, we have a spacious and shaded playground with age-appropriate, sensory-based spaces. Gardens, play areas and activities outdoors helps teach the children about the environment around them as well as sustainability.
We believe that all children have the right to express themselves in all aspects of their lives and we encourage this through our programs. Our aim is to inspire children to be individuals and utilize their self-help skills. We encourage family participation in our programs and welcome family input. Goodstart Gatton has an open door policy and is part of the community and hopes that families will join with us to discover their child's world.
Our educators are passionate, highly qualified professionals who understand the individual needs of children and their families. At Goodstart Gatton, our kitchen provides nutritionally balanced meals that are prepared and cooked on site. We cater to the five food groups ensuring that your child’s daily requirements are met. We happily cater for children with allergies.
At Goodstart Gatton, we focus on Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Our educators believe that belonging represents a sense of purpose within the centre, family and the community. It is therefore important that children feel as though they belong within our environment.
The children engaging in activities to promote their abilities allows them to feel a sense of being and individuality.
Finally, becoming represents the people they will become with the aid of their family, this centre and the community. Children learn from what they see and we aim to provide a loving and nurturing environment for them every day here at Goodstart Early Learning Gatton.
We would welcome the chance to meet you and your child, and explore how we can help give your child the best possible start to a journey of lifelong learning.
Hi there! My name is Christy and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Gatton.
I have worked in the early learning and child care sector for almost a decade and I started my journey at Goodstart Moonee Beach before transferring to Gatton to take on the Centre Director role.
I have a Diploma in Children’s services and am currently studying my Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood.
Throughout the course of my career, I have worked as a room leader in each of the rooms so I understand the individual needs of each age group.
My team and I share the belief that each child has a right to quality education and care, and together we work on establishing strong partnerships with families and we value family input and feedback.
Come in and see for yourself, our fun and energetic learning environment. We would love to show you around, get to know you and your child and explore how we can set up a path for lifelong learning.
