About Goodstart Grafton
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Grafton is a purpose built long day care centre. We cater for children aged birth to six years and the children are catered for in one of our six rooms catering for specific age groups – from Nursery through to Kindergarten / Preschool.
We incorporate a highly active and stimulating Preschool room focusing on school readiness for our four to six year old children. Our Preschool program is well renowned, and we are very proud to know that our Preschool children are well prepared for their first year at school. The curriculum as a whole is aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework and we believe strongly in the principle that there cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach to early learning.
All of our group rooms are well resourced and stimulating for children and our outdoor environment is all about big open spaces, trees, natural environment and tactile, stimulating play-based learning. We have vege patches and chickens and we use this environment to teach the children about nature and sustainability.
We have about 20 experienced and well qualified educators at our centre and most have been at the centre more than 10 years. This gives our families and children consistency and the opportunity to get to know each and every one of us.
At Goodstart Early Learning Grafton we consider safety a high priority; we are fully fenced by tall colour bond fence and there are several child safety gates in and around the centre. We also implement a stringent supervision plan to ensure that all children are supervised at all times. This provides our families with peace of mind.
Goodstart Early Learning Grafton provides meals and drinks for the children including Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea. All meals are prepared on the premises by our Qualified Cook.
Goodstart Early Learning Grafton provide extended hours of care as we operate Monday to Friday 6.30am to 6.30pm.
Goodstart Early Learning Grafton monitors, nurtures and plans to extend every child's developmental achievements and creates each child a developmental learning portfolio. These portfolios are a brilliant keep sake for families as we add art work, photos and blurbs documenting your child’s time with us here at the centre.
Goodstart Early Learning Grafton prides itself in honesty, reliability and genuinely caring for the educational needs of children and families within our community. We welcome everyone seeking childcare or Pre-School to visit to see our centre in action.
