Goodstart Early Learning Kangaroo Flat is located at 17A Church Street, Kangaroo Flat. We are close to local schools and shops as well as transport routes and community facilities.
Our Centre is on Djar Djar Wurrung land, and we pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging.
We are a team of passionate, caring, and talented Educators who pride ourselves on implementing engaging and holistic programs that meet the needs and interests of all children in our care.
Our Centre has four learning environments which have been named after Australian plants our local Djar Djar Wurrung language; Murna, Wurrak, Duwin, and Mutjang. We provide Early Learning for children aged six weeks to six years including 3- and 4-year-old funded Kindergarten Programs.
All educators are experienced with a mix of Bachelor qualified teachers, Diploma of Children’s Services and Certificate III in Children’s Services qualified, to care for and educate up to 75 children per day.
Our StoryPark platform enables 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.
Our qualified cook prepares meals and snacks, and all menus have been assessed against the Healthy Together Victoria guidelines. Our cook provides a four-week rotating menu that includes morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. We also offer the children food at several different points throughout the day, and they have access to fruit bowls in all the rooms.
We are passionate about providing a safe and welcoming space for children to learn and thrive.
Vision: “Children learn best at their own pace and in their own way”
Philosophy: “We believe in the power of connection. Connection to people and connection to the land. We want you to feel worthy of love, belonging, and joy. With natural, engaging environments and open hearts, we empower children to take confident leaps in their journey to independence”
