About Goodstart Griffith Coolah Street
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Griffith - Coolah Street is the closest Long Day Care Centre to the CBD and is close to schools, shops and community amenities.
We cater for 44 children a day – in rooms from Nursery to Preschool – and we pride ourselves on providing experiences which afford children the opportunity to develop a plethora of skills in exploration, self-discovery, social interactions and problem solving among others, in the overall attempt to set the children up for success.
Our educators are trained in health and safety practices to ensure that they are supporting each child’s individual needs. Our service provides quiet and relaxing sleep and rest rooms in each of our learning environments as well as a healthy and nutritious menu that is prepared on site. We believe that learning about health lifestyles, including nutrition and physical fitness, is integral to developing a child’s wellbeing and self-confidence.
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.
We engage in rich, authentic experiences, with play and sensory-based learning aligned to the Early Years’ Learning Framework. We have stimulating and fun home-like environments inside.
Then, our inviting natural outdoor environment has been designed around children’s interests and input. We actively participate in caring for our environment and promote sustainable practices through educating and working with the children, families and wider community. We have natural elements, sandpits, mud pit, dry creekbed, relaxation platform, vegie patch, worm farm and lots of shade.
We have a qualified cook who cooks fresh, healthy and nutritious meals for the children each day. The centre provides all meals during the day, including morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.
All educators hold a Certificate 3 or higher and are committed to providing all children with quality and engaging experiences that allow them to develop and grow. Our effective rostering allows for one educator from each room to be available at all times of the day.
Our service supports family and community input and believes that children’s development is enhanced when educators work collaboratively with families – and the broader community.
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.
