Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Geelong East
Goodstart Early Learning Geelong East cares for up to 67 children a day, broken into three room groups – Nursery, Toddlers and Kindergarten / Preschool. Each room offers child oriented and play based educational programs which are aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework, yet designed to meet the individual needs of the children.
Inside, our rooms are set up to provide the highest quality sensory and play based learning, while outside we have vege patches, natural open space and plenty of room for imagination and exploring.
We love sharing the children’s experiences through our Storypark platform which helps us maintain open and clear lines of communication with parents.
All meals are prepared on the premises by our talented cook who ensures tasty, nutritious meals are delivered to the children each day. We currently work on a five week rotating menu which includes many family favourites such as hot roast dinner and hearty lasagne. Dietary restrictions are also catered for.
We incorporate various special events and community days into our programs and calender of events, such as the annual hot cross bun making with our friends from Brumby's Bakery, visits from Geelong Police, and other dress up days.
Our families enjoy celebrating with us and participating in these extra events. They are always eager to attend excursions and functions such as end of year celebrations, children's graduation and grandparent weeks, just to name a few.
We would encourage you to come in and say hello. Meet the team and see how we can help your child start a wonderful journey of lifelong learning.
My name is Tanya and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Geelong East. I have an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and I have worked in many roles here over the past 16 years.
I am proud to now lead a team of passionate Early Childhood Professionals who are dedicated to providing high quality care.
I love walking into our centre each morning and greeting all the families and children. It is great to be able to move around the rooms throughout the day, sharing in the fun and laughter with everyone.
I personally have enjoyed - and continue to enjoy - the great relationships I have with families, children and educators at Goodstart Early Learning Geelong East. Being a smaller centre allows us more opportunities to communicate and share experiences on a personal level. This is why I feel at home at Goodstart and I hope you will too.
I would look forward to meeting you and your children! Pop in and say hello.
