About Goodstart Melbourne Flinders Street
Goodstart Early Learning Melbourne Flinders Street is conveniently located opposite Flinders Street Station making it easy for busy families to drop off and pick up. Reopening in June 2019 after 18 months of construction work to our building we are excited to welcome families back and new ones to our centre. We offer a wonderful combination of convenience with a bright, natural environment and an expansive outdoor playground - partially covered for all weather play outside.
We have 6 learning spaces, including 2 Nursery rooms, the first room 0-15months and the second catering for our 15months-24months children. Two 2-3year old Toddler rooms, a 3-4year-old Kindergarten room and a 4-5 year old Kindergarten room which both run the Kindergarten Accredited program.
Our rooms are thoughtfully designed to reflect our commitment to children, educators, families and the local community. Our resource rich environments encourage children to explore and our play-based learning programs are delivered by a team of passionate qualified early childhood educators and teachers.
We communicate with parents throughout the day ensuring you don’t miss out on all the fun! Through StoryPark families are provided with a secure login which enables you to keep informed through pictures, stories and learning outcomes.
We are all very excited to help our families settle in, and we look forward to creating a warm and stimulating environment for our children. Like the families that come here, many of our staff are from different cultural backgrounds and during the year we look forward to celebrating our diversity through events, language and stories.
We’ll be making every family feel that Goodstart Melbourne Flinders Street is a great place to come and we’re sure your child will love it here! Please contact us and we’d be delighted to give you a tour of our centre and introduce you to the team!

Chelsea Snowden Centre Director
Hi, my name is Chelsea Snowden and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart Melbourne Flinders Street.
I have been in the Early Childhood profession for over seven years and hold a Diploma of Early Childhood Education and care and have worked in various roles within the Goodstart family. I am very passionate about children and have continued my studies with a Bachelor of Early Childhood and Primary teaching.
I believe children are at the heart of everything we do, and we want to encourage each child to be strong, confident and independent beings to give them the best possible start in life. We celebrate culture and the diversity that we have in our Melbourne centre and welcome each family to our service. We create learning experiences that focus on the needs of each individual child, extend on their developmental milestones and encourage children to explore, engage and fulfil their dreams. Most of all, we want them to be happy, secure and become a part of the Flinders St community.
I am fortunate to lead a team of experienced, passionate and highly qualified early childhood educators who strive to have strong and genuine partnerships with our families and local community. The care and bond that the educators build with each child is evident in each learning space as you see the children’s voices and see them confident to make choices in their play. We look forward to meeting you and your children and working together to form a strong, long lasting relationship through your child’s early years!
