About Goodstart Kensington
Goodstart early Learning Child Care Centre Kensington is located in a residential area within the leafy surrounds of Raleigh Park, close to local schools, shops and community facilities.
Our centre offers a peaceful environment with a spacious outdoor area adjacent to our learning rooms. Many of our families and staff members come from within the local area, creating a community feeling.
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. We have a large sandpit, decking area around large shady trees, garden beds, a vege patch, compost bin and a large undercover verandah area.
All meals are prepared on site by our qualified cook who uses tasty, fresh and nutritional ingredients – just the thing to keep hungry tummies satisfied.
This sense of community is something that has become very special to the children here. A number of children have siblings at the centre, and those who do not have formed friendships and bonds with children of different ages through the support of the centre staff and their peers. The programs that we offer are based on the children learning and developing through play, having fun and building secure relationships with educators and peers.
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.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family and explore how we can support you on this early learning adventure.
