About Goodstart Jindi Kindergarten and Extended Care
Jindi Kindergarten and Extended Care
Goodstart Early Learning are working in partnership with Brotherhood of St Laurence at the new Jindi Family and Children Centre. The centre opened in February 2015 and offers a range of programs and services to provide holistic support to children and families, including a Kindergarten program with extended care and additional programs and services for families and the community.
Goodstart believes in children learning through fun and play. We encourage children to learn at their own pace through high quality educational programs and having opportunities to explore their environments to build strong social and emotional skills. We welcome and encourage parents to participate in the program and be involved in their children’s early learning experience.
Jindi Kindergarten and Extended Care will offer Government funded kindergarten programs with extended hours of care for those families that require the additional hours of support through to 6.30pm each night. Our centre will have three high quality and affordable kindergarten rooms for children aged 3-5 years in a brand new, state of the art environment. With flexible and extended hours (6.30am to 6.30pm, 52 weeks a year) we can meet the changing needs of families. Each room has a university qualified early childhood teacher and highly experienced Goodstart educators delivering the play-based learning program that will support children in learning the skills for school and life.
Jindi Kindergarten and Extended Care is part of the local kindergarten central enrolment system delivered by the City of Whittlesea. All children attending a four year old kindergarten program at Jindi Kindergarten and Extended Care need to register with City of Whittlesea. Our team will assist with this process.
Goodstart and the Brotherhood of St Laurence are not-for-profit organisations working in partnership to provide services to meet the changing and diverse needs of Mernda community. The Jindi Kindergarten and Extended Care centre will be the first program delivered by Goodstart in partnership with another organisation and we are excited by the opportunity to provide an integrated service to the local community and support the growth and wellbeing of the Mernda children and families. Over time additional services for children, parents and families will be introduced to help strengthen families’ participation in the community.
