About Goodstart Melton High Street
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Melton - High Street is located in a safe and quiet residential area, still conveniently close to local schools, shops and community facilities.
We are a 75 place child care centre that caters for children from six weeks to five years. Many of our educators have been here since centre opened and we have a very low turnover rate.
Many of our team are qualified, with the majority of educators upgrading their qualifications to a higher level. Other educators are currently studying to achieve qualifications. All our educators are trained in first aid and have their anaphylaxis training.
Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
This is made simpler through our intuitive Storypark platform, which enables us to maintain consistent and clear communications with families. That means we are better placed to support a child in their learning journey, ensure parents have peace of mind, and time stamp the children’s developments, milestones and achievements.
Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with A-frame, sandpits, digging patches, cubby houses, vege patches, worm farm, forts, and lots of shade. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability – while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam.
We pride ourselves on offering a fully inclusive program for all children and provide meals that meet dietary requirements. We provide four meals a day, all nappies, all linen and cow’s milk for the children.
A major focus for our centre is how working with the broader community can help us 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 with you and your family and learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
