About Goodstart North Lakes College Street
Goodstart Early Learning North Lakes - College Street is a large 119 place child care centre catering for children aged six weeks to 10 years. We are conveniently located close to local schools and amenities, making the daily drop-off and pick-up simpler and stress free. Are operating hours are 6:00am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday and we are closed on Public Holidays.
We are proud to be meeting the needs of the growing North Lakes community. Goodstart North Lakes College Street is a three building centre consisting of a Junior Side, Senior Side and an OSHC/Vacation Care Room.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten - are set up in accordance 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. We also have access to iPads to enhance the learning experience.
Our Storypark platform, as well as regular information nights, Facebook 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.
Outside we have 3 areas, all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. Throughout our playgrounds we have a balance of natural and manmade elements and a host of equipment and experiences which test the children, help them develop and allow their imaginations to run freely.
Community is vitally 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.
At Goodstart North Lakes College Street we supply nappies, wipes, sunscreen, morning tea, afternoon tea and a late snack is provided to children from the Toddler room up. All children will receive a hat on enrolment at our centre. We are a safe, security conscience centre with security pads (with codes) placed on all entrance doors.
We look forward to meeting you and working with your family to provide a learning environment that offers your child the best possible start in life
