Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Kingsley is located on Kingsley Drive and is a small child care centre, which has been part of the community for 25 years. We are located 20km outside of Perth and easily accessible via the freeway and public transport.
Our centre plays a critical role in the community by providing parents with high quality care for their children while they are at work. Parents know how important their child rearing practices are and that we respect these. We actively seek information from parents as a part of their day-to-day communication with us.
Through the years we have provided care to approximately 480 families spanning over generations, with some of our past children now having their own children in our care. Our families are mostly Australians of European background, however, we also have multicultural families from South Africa, the UK, China, Korea, South America, North America, Israel and New Zealand currently enrolled at our centre.
Goodstart Kingsley is our "home away from home". Family is very important to us and we encourage sibling interactions as well as family input wherever possible.
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; 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 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.
We have an inclusive and enabling environment so that the children in our care can enjoy a variety of resources and opportunities which promote learning, wellbeing and cohesion. Educators are encouraged to be facilitators who set up learning environments that support children in their independent process of discovery.
Our child care centre has a good size playground and boasts a veggie patch that our children help tend to. Popular centre residents are our three budgies, Bluey, Skye and Charlie. The children enjoy having them out of their cage and are also responsible for helping with their care. We also have four fish, Elsa, Joey, Kate and Emma, which we enjoy feeding and having them as guests near our lunch table. Extracurricular activities are available at an extra cost, such as Happy Feet.
Children love our centre because they come and play with their friends and educators and learn and develop in a fun filled environment. Families love our centre because their children learn new skills, improve their speech, learn social skills, master new skills, and love the genuine interest staff have on all the children.
We look forward to seeing you soon at Goodstart Kingsley, and working together to achieve the best in early learning outcomes for your child.
