About Goodstart Kirwan Golf Links Drive
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care centre Kirwan - Golf Links Drive is a purpose built centre established in 1999 providing care for children 6weeks to 6 years. Our centre is located close the Ryan, Willows and Kirwan primary schools and minutes away from the Willows Shopping Centre.
We boast 5 fun and bright learning class rooms, each with their own shaded play ground.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten, 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 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.
Each of our rooms feature their own playground, targeted at the specific age group, designed to stimulate the children’s imagination and encourage them to explore. The separate playgrounds include sandpits, natural and manmade play surfaces, swings, and lots of room for imaginative and fun play. We also have water features, a vegetable patch, seating areas, undercover areas, mud pits and a play fort.
The staff at our centre are highly trained and qualified in Child Care, and we are fortunate enough to employ many long-term staff ranging from 5-25+ years continuous service. Our Educators provide an environment that allows children to be themselves while they explore, create, investigate and problem solve. We offer a variety of activities for children throughout the day, including music and movement, active play, craft activities, language, computer skills and much more.
At Goodstart we believe all children deserve the best possible start in life. It’s why we have developed a high-quality kindergarten program that is officially recognised by Australia’s federal and state governments. We have a qualified Early Childhood Teacher, and our kindergarten program has been developed in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework.
Our calendar of events is very busy and includes dress up days, mothers and fathers day afternoon teas, pet visits, crazy hair day and even a pyjama day. We also have a few themed shows at the centre throughout the year to educate and entertain our children.
We warmly welcome new families, so please stop by! We would love to explore how we can support you and your child on their pathway to lifelong learning.
