About Goodstart Orange Kite Street
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Orange - Kite Street is conveniently located in the middle of the Orange CBD, making it an attractive option for working families.
Our educators are passionate and committed to assisting our children to develop a love of learning through the opportunities they are given. We are very proud of the relationships that we have with our families which provides the basis for successful partnerships and outcomes for children.
You can be confident that our educational programs at Goodstart Orange Kite Street consider both individual and group interests and that our educators plan developmentally appropriate experiences, in line with the Early Years’ Learning Framework, giving your child the best start to their life. That’s from when they start in the Nursery, through to Kindergarten / Preschool.
Both our indoor and outdoor spaces have great character as our centre is set up in a heritage-listed building. We also have a full kitchen to provide meals for the children.
Outside you’ll see the children engaged in experiences in our natural play spaces. We have lots of interesting things outside to keep them busy including vegetable patches, a worm farm, composting and beautiful leafy trees. Our inside spaces are places for investigating, exploring, experimenting and discovering.
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.
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.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family. Come in and take a look around, meet the team and explore how we can support your early learning journey.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:

Mick Wallace Centre Director
Hello, my name is Mick and I’m the Centre Director here at Goodstart Early Learning Kite St.
I have by Bachelor of Teaching (EC) and Bachelor of Education (EC).
My journey in Early Childhood began in 2000, where I began as the Pre School Room Teacher in Orange. Over the past twenty years I have been a Director and Area Manager for Peppercorn Child Care Services, ABC and Goodstart and for past six years the Pre School teacher at Goodstart Kite St.
What I enjoy and love the most about working with children is implementing a dedicated Pre School program aimed at school readiness learning and skills for the children in our centre. I also am an advocate for children leading and developing their own learning and ideas as part of the curriculum we create for children, with individual goals a key component.
I look forward to meeting you and speaking with you, on what our service offers.
