About Goodstart Haberfield
Goodstart Early Learning Centre Haberfield is situated in a quiet, suburban street with leafy surroundings; a residential setting close to local schools and shops as well as transport routes. The centre is heritage listed with original features both inside and out. Each room has high ceilings and large windows allowing natural sunlight into each area.
The majority of our staff have been at the centre for over four years and come from various cultural backgrounds.
Having been in operation since 1963, our centre is well established in Haberfield and the surrounding suburbs with a lot of families returning with younger siblings and referring us to others.
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.
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.
At the back of our centre we have two large playgrounds equipped with sand pits, fixed equipment and space for movable activities. Both areas are well shaded with established trees and shade sails where required.
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 breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.
Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
Our families support centre events with large attendances and enjoy forming friendships with other families at the centre.
We look forward to meeting you and your family soon! Come in and meet the team, take a tour and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life
