About Goodstart Gracemere
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Gracemere is conveniently located close to schools, shops and community facilities.
We are a warm, friendly and inviting centre, which caters for birth through to primary school age children and offers Before and After School care, and bus services from the local schools.
Our educators are local to the area and are qualified and committed to the quality care they provide to our families. Every day we provide high quality educational learning for your child as well as making sure their learning is fun and memorable in a relaxed environment.
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.
Throughout our two yards we have sandpits, grassed areas, trees, soft fall, vege patches, worm farm, mud pit, bike path, dry creek bed with tap, stage areas and lots of shade.
A major focus for our centre is how working with the broader community can help us enrich the children’s learning experience. 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 look forward to getting to know you and your child and creating wonderful memories along the pathway to lifelong learning.
