About Goodstart Mount Tamborine
Goodstart Mount Tamborine is located in the gorgeous mountain-side surroundings of the Gold Coast Hinterland. Based in a small community, the centre is walking distance to the local primary school, shops and services.
Our open and spacious rooms allow us to set up inviting and diverse play areas for the children. The amount of recourses that we have allows us to change the environments regularly to suit and cater for the children’s ever changing interests and growing needs. The children are very involved learners and have a huge amount of input into how they would like their learning and environments to look.
Our outdoor play spaces are also inviting with lots of shady native trees, beautiful natural grassed area with a yarning circle for the children to play and relax in, two chickens (Henny and Penny) and we have established a purposeful garden where we use the dirt from the chicken pen; this then grows grasses and vegetables which the children can pick or cut to feed back to Henny and Penny.
Our close relationship with the Tamborine Mountain State School (located conveniently across the road) ensures our Kindergarten children are as ready for school as they can be. Each term we take excursions to the school and get involved in the Pre-Prep program, where the children meet the Prep Teachers and are introduced to the rooms etc. We also attend their under 8’s day and NAIDOC week celebrations to name just a few.
Most of our qualified and dedicated team have worked at the centre for many years and live in the local area. Our educators work in partnership with our families to incorporate their values into their daily program. These educators have knowledge in child development and can provide your child with high quality learning opportunities and experiences.
Our centre has Storypark which is a secure, online platform that allows educators to document and share your child’s learning with you easily and efficiently. It provides real-time opportunities to connect with you, keeping you up to date on your child’s progress as it happens.
You’ll notice a special atmosphere here at Goodstart Mount Tamborine when you first visit us. Our centre is friendly, caring and warm and the children are excited to return each day and discover new things to play, learn and do. At the centre you and your children will form friendships that will last a lifetime.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:

Melissa Martin-Moore Centre Director
Hi my name is Melissa Martin-Moore and I’m the Centre Director here at Goodstart Mount Tamborine. I currently hold my Diploma in Children’s Services and have been working in the Childcare industry for 8 years now.
I am very passionate about providing high quality childcare and will do my best to provide this to you and your family.
As a centre we strive to provide enriched learning experiences for children in a safe and nurturing environment where they can become confident learners, build on their curiosity and knowledge of the world around them.
I believe the saying goes “it takes a village to raise a child” and here at Goodstart Mount Tamborine we will work collaboratively with families and the wider community to establish long lasting, strong relationships that last a lifetime.
We offer a fabulous approved Kindergarten program with Mr Brendon and have strong links to Mount Tamborine State School which provides our children the best possible start to school and life.
Our program includes gardening, messy play, science, fundamental movement skills, yoga and cooking for children of all ages.
Please stop by and say hello and see our beautiful centre that we call home.
