About Goodstart Junee
Welcome from Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Junee. We are located in a small rural township approximately 40kms outside Wagga Wagga. We are the only long day Early Learning Service in the area – and we are conveniently located near schools, shops and main transport routes.
Our child care centre is open 52 weeks a year with the exception of Public Holidays, we are licenced for 44 children each day and cater for children 6 weeks to school age.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Preschool - are set up in line with Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. 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 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 programs to each 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. We have one large area with covered verandah, bike track, sandpit, vegetable garden, worm farm and other garden beds.
We provide morning and afternoon tea for tummies made hungry by lots of play!
Goodstart Junee is extremely community focused and pride ourselves on our strong and continual commitment to our local area and families. Our educators are trained in the Munch and Move program, encouraging healthy habits for children. We also use our connection with the community – and the individuals and organisations therein – to enrich the early learning experience.
We warmly welcome new families! We would love to explore how we can support you and your child on their pathway to lifelong learning.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Elizabeth Robbie Centre Director
I’m Elizabeth and I am the Centre Director here at Goodstart Early Learning Junee.
I have worked in the Children’s services industry since 1989 in New South Wales, Victoria and the Northern Territory, in both long day care and Preschool.
I have always enjoyed working with young minds, watching them grow and learn in all aspects of their development.
I have three fantastic children and a husband whose job gives us the opportunity to travel all over Australia with our family. I find it comforting and fascinating that children are the same all over Australia in their need for nurturing, love and security.
I am fortunate to work with a highly qualified and experienced team, whose passion for the industry and their roles therein is matched by a commitment to giving the children the highest quality learning experiences.
We would love to make you and your family welcome at the centre and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.
