About Goodstart Narre Warren North
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Narre Warren North is located in Casey, close to local schools, shops and community amenities and only 37 kilometres South-East of Melbourne. Our centre is well embedded within the community and has close relationships with local schools, nursing homes and Windermere.
We cater for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age and have about 100 active families at our centre. Many of our dedicated educators have been working with us for many years, and some for more than 13 years. We have a funded kindergarten program and our Kindergarten Teacher has been with us for 11 years.
Inside, 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. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
Oustide we have a balance of natural and manmade surrounds and play surfaces with sandpits, climbing equipment, vege and herb patches, dry creek beds, chickens, a compost bin, worm farm and lots of shade.
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.
Communication with parents is highly regarded at our centre and takes place informally at drop off and pick up and formally via emails, communication books, regular newsletters, portfolios and parent input forms.
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 pride ourselves on being a family centric centre and children are central to everything we do. Our mission is to make families, children and educators feel at home here and explore the centre freely.
We look forward to meeting you and your family, and exploring how we can set your child on a pathway to lifelong learning.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
