Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Oakleigh South - Moresby Street is located in a safe and quiet residential area close to schools and local shops and community services.
Our Vision is for our children to develop a sense of respect and cultural diversity and to feel happy, loved, safe and secure in their surroundings.
We believe in providing the best possible care and education to each child and ensure that all children are supported and guided through the first five years of their life.
Our educators aim to provide a nurturing and engaging care environment through our learning programs that are provided in all rooms that will support each child through play based learning. They scaffold children during the learning process to provide support and encouragement whilst ensuring your child feels comfortable in the care environment
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – we provide play-based educational programs which reflect the Early Years Learning Framework. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
Outside, we have two areas both with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have sandpits, tan bark areas, a worm farm, veggie garden, an undercover area, cubby and a slide.
Each week the children can join our extra-curricular programs which includes:
- Yoga, to build concentration and learn about breath awareness
- Rhythm and Beat, to get dancing and exploring musical instruments and tuning into different tempos
- Live Green, a sustainability journey to develop an awareness an appreciation for the world
- Mini Chef, to develop knife and kitchen utensil skills and develop healthy eating habit habits
- Active Bodies, to build up physical and gross motor skills and learn correct skill techniques that can be applied to various sports
Our centre is family orientated and we welcome parent input and participation at all times. We have many families that have been involved in the centre for many years and take great pleasure in being part of these families, watching their children grow and develop, finding their own unique individuality. We share information and communicate openly to ensure that each and every child is supported as they grow and develop into confident, active, happy children.
Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family events 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.
