About Goodstart Murarrie
Goodstart Early Learning Murarrie is located in the busy Metroplex hub at 20 Metroplex Avenue Murarrie. There is ample parent parking at the service for convenient drop-off and pick-up and for families, and a handy bus service close to the centre.
Goodstart Murarrie has been providing quality early childhood education to the local community and business district for over 11 years. There are a range of local schools close to the vicinity, both public and private.
We currently operate 2 centres, Unit 1 and Unit 2, offering care from 6 weeks up to school age. Partnerships with our families are paramount. We acknowledge the uniqueness and diversity of all children encompassing individual learning styles, backgrounds and cultures. We provide children with opportunities to participate in open ended ways.
We have a large team of dedicated Educators, whom bring a wealth of knowledge and our Kindergarten is run by a qualified teacher who holds his Bachelor in Early Childhood Education.
Communication is highly regarded at the centre and families receive a bi-monthly newsletter, which talks about important events happening in the service and the local community. We also have a calendar of events for the year.
Children's learning and needs are ever-changing and we offer families opportunities to discuss this development with their child's teachers on a regular basis. Progress of learning is documented and available for families to view at any time through their child's Learning Profiles.
The children and families love the extra-curricular activities that are available throughout the year as well as the yearly calendar of events that has lots of fun interactive experiences on offer, including community shows and wildlife experiences.
We ensure that hungry tummies are being filled with yummy meals and we currently offer a morning and afternoon tea service, so families only need to bring lunch for their child. Our playgrounds back onto the beautiful scenic backdrop of the native bushland, which attracts a variety of birds and wild life and our children enjoy taking pictures of and drawing the native flora and fauna.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:

Dorothy Dawid Centre Director
Hi, my name is Dorothy and I’m the Centre Director at Goodstart, Murarrie.
I have been working in various long day centres, as a Director for the last 25 years. I hold a Master’s Degree of Education, specialising in early childhood teaching awarded by the Teacher’s College of advanced education in Poland.
Families are the children’s first educators and support children’s learning in so many ways.
I believe that building positive relationships with families and educators as well a connecting with the community, promotes reciprocal and genuine partnership, and child’s learning is optimised.
We, as educators, find ways to understand each family’s values and beliefs, iIn order to provide the best possible environment for your child.
