About Goodstart Little Mountain Gumtree Pocket Court
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre – Gumtree Pocket Court – Little Mountain is situated in "Parklands Estate" only minutes away from some of the Sunshine Coasts most sought after beaches. We are close to schools and local shops as well as main roads and public transport routes.
At our centre we are committed to the happiness of our children and the great relationships we have between ourselves and our families. We welcome all families and community members into our centre and strive to be actively involved in our local community. We encourage the children to learn through play by building on their own ideas & interests and we support the children through this process.
Our programs are reflective of the Early Years Learning Framework and activities are on offer for the children to challenge themselves in all areas of development, building their confidence for a strong start to their future.
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 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 three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We are part of a business sustainability cluster and have introduced recycle bins, worm farms, compost bins and a water tank.
We spend time with the children to educate and support them with these processes and strive to be one of the most sustainable centres on the coast. Our centre has “Gumtree Pocket Gardens” a fully functional gardening area where the children can learn about growing their own vegies and plants and caring for their pet chickens.
We recognise each child as individuals and are always looking to meet each child’s individual needs. We are continually working towards providing a high quality service to ensure our children, families and staff are happy are safe.
Drop in and say hello! We would love to make you and your family welcome and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.
