About Goodstart Glenfield Park
Goodstart Early Learning Glenfield Park can be found in a quiet cul-de-sac, near a doctor’s surgery, a shopping complex and community hall.
Our program caters for children aged from 6 weeks to 5 years, welcoming a diverse range of families, respecting all backgrounds and cultures.
We have a unique outlook and perspective of working families, therefore at our centre you have the convenience of longer hours. Children can be dropped off at any time during the centre's opening hours. We are open 52 weeks a year and close only on the public holidays.
In 2019 Goodstart Glenfield Park received an Exceeding Rating in line with the National Quality Standard, recognising the exceptional work that we do at our Centre.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated and experienced team of long-standing educators, most of whom have been with the centre since opening our doors in 2003. Our Key Educator approach creates close bonds between families, educators, and children, which is extremely important during the early years of development. Our aim is to support families to raise their children to be confident, competent learners who embrace social interaction every day.
Mealtimes are our favourite part of the day, as our Centre Cook prepares healthy and nutritious meals daily onsite, which includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, catering for all dietary needs.
Inside area, all the rooms - from Nursery to Preschool - are set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Our engaging environment ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop positive interactions that model friendships and respectful social interactions with others.
Outside area, we have four areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have two main outdoor play areas with sandpits, vegetable garden, a stage, slides, dry creek bed, mud kitchen and swings offering plenty of shade.
Our sustainable practices are embedded in our day to day routines, this is evident throughout the whole service including the communication systems that we have in place. Our Storypark online platform, as well as regular family nights, 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. Families are regularly invited to give feedback on our program and centre events.
Community is important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year, we can enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided daily which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family, by booking a centre tour, so that we can learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.

Kiara Driscoll Centre Director
My name is Kiara and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Glenfield Park.
I am passionate about early education and care and have been working in this sector since 2001. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and have been the Centre Director here at Glenfield since 2007.
I’ve taken a hands-on approach at my centre, building connections with families from first contact, and the best part of my day is spending time with the children and educators during the day. I firmly believe in creating a safe, positive, nurturing environment.
I feel privileged to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the incredible children that we educate and care for every day. We have such an important role to play in establishing solid foundations from which the children can grow.
I work closely with my Team who shares my passion for helping children meet their potential. They are dedicated, professional, experienced and highly qualified. As a Team we provide constant support and guidance of daily practices and curriculum delivery, to ensure our learning outcomes are achieved within the approved learning framework.
We are excited to welcome you into our centre and available to discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning
