About Goodstart Mount Warren Park Mount Warren Boulevard
Goodstart Mount Warren Park on Mount Warren Boulevard has been a part of this wonderful community for many years. Within the community our child care centre is striving to make connections with our local indigenous groups and are forever expanding our knowledge and interaction with local groups, with the intention of embedding meaningful and respectful indigenous practice within our service.
We pride ourselves on our ability to include all families from different backgrounds and cultures into our service and educational program. We work alongside our families to ensure we do this in a meaningful and respectful way. We are building links with our local support groups and community services to ensure we are able to offer the best care and advice for families to assist in caring for their precious children.
At Goodstart Mount Warren Park we provide childcare services for children from 15 months to 5 years, and we tailor our individual educational programs to our four beautiful classrooms: Toddlers, Pre-Kindy, Kindy and Kindergarten. Our dedicated educators have been at the centre for many years allowing them to build strong and meaningful relationships with each other, the children and the families. Coming from diverse backgrounds, the educators at Mount Warren Boulevard have lots of life experience and skills to share.
Communication is a key part of how we work together with the families. By utilising our families as an important resource to contribute to the educational program, we are able to cater for the individual needs of each child and help them to feel connected to their environment. We communicate with families by sending out bi-monthly newsletters, displaying learning documentation on the walls and through email. Families are always welcome to come into the centre to help and join in on their child’s day. Our educators also create personalised learning journals for the children which are on display in the classrooms for families and children to access. These display all of the wonderful learning stories and photos from the year.
Our child care centre is one of a kind. The dynamic of this group of educators is like no other and we pride ourselves on truly being a home away from home. Our centre backs on to beautiful bushland, which means we have the joy of seeing spectacular wildlife in our outdoor environment. Our local family of bearded dragons – Big Lizzie, Small Lizzie and Baby Lizzie are a daily cause for excitement as we feed them and watch them climb our trees. We have two yards at our centre and our educators and children have been working together to build and maintain our veggie patches and flower gardens. This teaches our children about sustainability and allows them to feel a sense of achievement for the work they do.
We have our own centre cook here to make yummy and nutritious meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea to fill hungry tummies – so no need to pack lunch every day. We also try our best to cater for all dietary requirements (for cultural reasons, or health) so let us know how we can cater best for your child. We also provide nappies here. All children receive a Goodstart hat on their first day, so they can look and feel like part of our centre family straight away. Extra-curricular sport programs are also on offer for the children to take part in, such as Tennis and Soccer classes.
What children love most about our centre is the fun times they spend with their educators and peers. They love having the freedom and support to be their own person and explore in a safe environment which will foster their development and encourage them to grow as individuals.
The families love the friendly educators and happy atmosphere. Our families know that support and guidance is always available from our experienced and educated staff.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
