About Goodstart Melrose Park
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Melrose Park is a 70 place child care centre located in a secure but convenient spot, close to local schools and shops, making the daily drop-off and pick-up easier!
Catering for children six weeks to five years old, we have four rooms at the centre: a Nursery room, a Toddler room, a Pre-Kindy room and a Kindergarten / Preschool room.
Our experienced childcare educators provide daily age appropriate experiences and sessions to promote the development of all children within the centre. In our Kindy room the children focus on LetterLand activities and school readiness. This curriculum, based on the Early Years' Learning Framework, also includes the use of the BroadLearn computers.
Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
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 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. Our play areas have sandpits, to climbing equipment, natural gardens to open space to run around - and everything in between - with lots of shade for sunsafe play.
Our centre supplies nutritional morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snacks but we ask that you bring breakfast and bottles from home. We also supply nappies and linen for children to use while they are in attendance.
Through key partnerships and tapping into the skills and talents of our families and the broader community, we are able to enrich the children's learning program with "real life" visits and incursions, as well as exciting visits to locations within the community.
Art and music experiences - as well as other extra-curricular activities - are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.
