About Goodstart Oakbank
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Oakbank is situated in the heart of Oakbank on the main road, close to nearby schools, shops and community services.
At our centre we have a strong, caring and consistent team who provide a fun, educational and safe environment for all the children in our care. We have a smaller centre which allows us to get to know our children and families on a more personal level.
We all enjoy working closely with the children and families from our local community. We believe that the early years are vital for a child’s development and therefore work hard to ensure we help parents give their children the best start to life possible.
Inside, all 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.
Our Over 2’s room allows for siblings to interact together during the day and the Kindergarten children often take the younger children ‘under their wings’ in a buddy type way.
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 have sandpits, fruit trees and vegetable patches, sensory gardens, a bird, a view out onto adjoining paddocks and lots of shade.
All meals are prepared on site by our qualified cook who uses tasty, fresh and nutritional ingredients – just the thing to keep hungry tummies satisfied.
Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we can enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided daily which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We invite you to come and visit our centre to meet our team and to see for yourself our commitment to your child’s early learning journey.
