About Goodstart Maroochydore Main Road
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Maroochydore - Main Road is located in a residential / commercial area close to community facilities, public transport and local schools and shops.
We have five colourful rooms. We cater for ages six weeks to twelve years with Before and After School Care as well as Vacation Care during school holidays. The centre has two buses and air conditioning throughout all rooms.
We have two separate play areas with adjoining fences to allow sibling interaction during outside play time. Our child care centre offers educational programs following the Early Years Learning Framework, My Time Our Place Framework and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines.
The outdoor spaces were designed by our centre team to ensure they meet the needs of our children and families to create a learning environment that challenges and inspires investigation in all children.
We have recently started a journey with a program around sustainability called ‘The Small Green Steps’. This program will educate our children and families around sustainable practices and includes growing our own vegetable garden, establishing a worm farm and compost, and installing a water tank and recycling bins.
All of our rooms in the centre have fully qualified educators that each hold a blue card, current first aid and CPR and who are very caring, passionate and dedicated ensuring all children have the best possible start in life.
Each of our rooms has a vast range of equipment to help cater to each individual child’s developmental stage whilst allowing them to extend their learning further. We have dedicated a room to exploring the arts, with a range of mediums which the children can go to extend on their learning whilst enhancing their creativity and imagination.
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.
A major focus for our centre is working with the broader community to enrich the children’s learning experience. Through visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events, we are able to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family and explore how we can support you on this early learning adventure.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Natasha Sullivan Centre Director
Hi there! I’m Natasha and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Kuluin - Main Road.
I have been in the child care and early learning sector since 2003 and I have an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services. Through these years I have worked with all age groups ranging from 6 weeks to 12 years of age and have worked my way up to the role of Director, and can say I have enjoyed each and every moment of the journey.
I pride myself in the continual individualised high quality of care that the educators offer here at our childcare centre. I am very passionate, along with my educators, in providing high quality of care/education while creating a warm, safe and welcoming centre for all children and families.
I believe all children should be given the opportunity to learn through play in a positive and nurturing environment that will guide and prepare them for their future. We always suggest trial days for you and your child to make the transition into the centre a smoother one.
We offer a sense of belonging for all children and families which can be seen in the children’s learning environments and experiences within the service through all that they do day to day.
Drop in and say hello! We would love to make you and your family welcome and the centre and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.
