About Goodstart North Mackay
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre North Mackay is an 86 place centre located in a commercial / residential area close to main roads, transport, shops and schools.
We cater for children from 15 months to 5 years - including a strong Kindergarten / Preschool room - and our educators ensure all children's needs and interests are met through our Early Years' Learning Framework curriculum.
Both indoors and outdoors, the staff provide engaging play-spaces where children learn through play. Our educators especially enjoy forming friendships with all of the children in their care and their families.
Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
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.
Outside, we have age appropriate play spaces and equipment, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability.
Our three beautiful playgrounds offer each of our age groups opportunities to build on their physical skills with sandpits, gardens, lots of grassed area to run and play, climbing and play equipment and lots of shade.
A major focus for our centre is how working with the broader community can help us enrich the children’s learning experience. Through visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events, we are able to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.
Our families enjoy coming together for our centre events, including mother's day morning tea, father's day morning tea, grandparent's day and the centre Christmas party.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family and learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.
