About Goodstart North Melbourne
Located on Flemington Road, our North Melbourne centre is a newly-constructed, architecturally designed building with vibrant outdoor play areas and a rooftop playspace overlooking the Melbourne skyline.
The centre has five separate and spacious age-based learning spaces, including a nursery, a toddler learning space, pre-kindy and kindergarten. Large, shaded playgrounds feature natural play spaces for children to explore and include fruit and vegetable gardens, sandpits, climbing equipment and chill-out zones.
We offer 2 years of kinder. That's two years of continued high-quality early learning, playing and making friends. Everything your child needs to feel ready for school.
The rooftop features a wooden cubby house, swings, bike tracks, a timber stage for performances, stepping stones, bridge, water pump and a stream for exploration. Children can also sit in the yarning circle for conversations with peers and Educators.
Five Bachelor-qualified teachers will develop and deliver tailored education programs. Goodstart Early learning in North Melbourne focusses on strong positive interactions with children and educators, following the key educator approach across the center.
The menu has been specially designed following the Australian nutritional guidelines. The food is prepared fresh daily by the in house Sous chef.

Centre Director Sarah Pentecost
My name is Sarah Pentecost and I'm the Centre Director at Goodstart North Melbourne.
I have been working in early childhood education for 17 years. Over those years I have worked across all age groups from birth to six years old. I have successfully completed my Certificate III, Diploma and Bachelor of Early Childhood Education.
Over my years in the industry I have worked within many roles, including room assistant, room leader, educational leader, Assistant Director and have been a Centre Director for four years. I have been with Goodstart for past 13 years and have been able to form lots of amazing professional relationships.
I believe the first five years are the most important and am a huge advocate for play based learning, which is what we offer at Goodstart North Melbourne. Children learn best when they are comfortable and their learning is enhanced when they are able to play and develop.
