About Goodstart Mona Vale
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Mona Vale is nestled beneath native gum trees, in a residential area close to schools, shops and transport links.
Our indoor spaces are just as special, with predictable and comforting areas encouraging self-lead play, decision making skills and social interactions. Our rooms open up onto our outdoor spaces, allowing for a free-flow affect throughout the day.
Not only does this allow for our educators to support success when transitioning but also encourages children to make choices and become more capable and confident learners. Our curriculum is developed in line with the Early Years' Learning Framework, keeping in mind the children's individual needs and interests.
One of the first things you will notice about Goodstart Early Leaning Mona Vale is our beautiful outdoor environment. We have endless opportunities for natural exploration in a safe, but challenging space where children are encouraged to discover, investigate and connect with nature. We encourage loud, messy play in our outdoor space, with logs, tyres, river rocks and water play, stimulating sensory learning as well as a respect and value on nature’s resources.
At Goodstart Early Learning Mona Vale, we view relationships as the most important aspect to the success of a positive, and engaging early learning experience.
From our first meeting with you and your family, we will commit to providing tailored care, believing the parent to the best and first teacher in a child’s life. Our team are experienced, trusting and committed to ensuring you and your child experience the best quality care with us. We strive to establish secure base attachments, and work towards an evidence-informed, key educator approach, allowing for success when navigating the foundational aspects of life-long relationships and partnerships.
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.
We also have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods.
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.
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.
