About Goodstart Marrickville
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Marrickville is on the grounds of Marrickville Public School. We have a lovely, heritage building with high ceilings, lots of open space and two age appropriate outdoor playgrounds, and a courtyard that we are able to use when the weather is wet.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Preschool - are 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.
Our centre staff come from many varied backgrounds and they bring with them a wealth of experience and dedication. Many of the staff are bi-lingual and incorporate their cultures into our educational programs.
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. Both our outdoor playgrounds have established trees, providing natural shade, along with shade sails, fixed equipment, sandpits and a variety of outdoor equipment.
We are open from 6:30am to 6pm, provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. We have a cook on the premises who prepares the meals on-site. Our menu is highly nutritious with the children enjoying a range of meals. If your child has any special dietary requirements, just let us know and we are able to cater for these.
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 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.
