About Goodstart Mount Waverley
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Mount Waverley is located in a quiet corporate business district, just off the Monash freeway.
We believe that all children have the right to learn and grow in a warm, accepting and nurturing environment. We believe that Parents, Guardians and Families are children’s first teachers and we as educators work alongside them to provide a cohesive learning and developmental platform.
We facilitate the children’s learning and balance their rights, needs and feelings with that of others. We truly embrace our cultural diversity and celebrate all that has and will continue to form who we are and have the potential to become.
Inside our centre, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities.
Our Storypark platform enables 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 three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have a balance of natural and manmade elements and lots of area for the children to explore and let their imaginations roam with sandpits, vege patches, a bike path, pergola, worm farm, citrus trees and lots of shade.
All meals are prepared on site by our qualified cook who uses tasty, fresh and nutritional ingredients – just the thing to keep hungry tummies satisfied.
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.
We constantly strive for improvement and pride ourselves on providing a program that is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, and that Exceeds the National Quality Standard.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family and explore how we can support you on this early learning adventure.

Kelly Walton Centre Director
Hi, I'm Kelly Walton and I am the Centre Director here at Goodstart Mount Waverley. I have been in the childcare sector for 22 years and have been a Centre Director for over 10 years. I have a Bachelor of Teaching and a Diploma in Early Childhood. Throughout my career I have worked with and educated children from all age groups and have had the opportunity to gain experience in a number of different roles.
I am a strong believer in ensuring children are central to everything we do. My core belief is that children need to be safe, secure and have the ability to thrive in an enriched environment.
Our team is made up of very experienced and passionate educators who are highly qualified in the field of early childhood development.
I believe in an inclusive education and working closely with families to ensure the needs of each child is met.
Choosing a childcare can be stressful to say the least; so please come and see us here in Mount Waverley and I hope we can ease that stress by providing a seamless transition into our early learning environment.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family.
