About Goodstart Parramatta
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Parramatta is a 24 place child care centre conveniently located less than 1km from Parramatta Train Station and Parramatta Westfield Shopping Centre.
We have six educators onsite holding qualifications ranging from Early Childhood Teacher, Diploma and Certificate III. Each bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the service.
Security is valued at our centre and as such is accessible only through a security gate that is operated by educators within the centre. Our centre is spacious for its size and filled with natural light and our rooms are split into three age groups. We have a lovely outdoor play area accessible for all children at the centre.
At Goodstart Parramatta we build our curriculum around the children’s interests, reflecting the Early Years Learning Framework. Our program builds learning skills, early literacy and numeracy, life skills and social and emotional resilience. We also offer extra-curricular experiences on a weekly basis to support our program and offer a Preschool curriculum and school readiness program within our Preschool Room.
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. We have a lovely outdoor area with a sandpit and rock garden, deck area, a balance of manmade and natural play surfaces and lots of shade.
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 currently provide all meals through Kids Gourmet Foods, but will be moving to an onsite cook in May 2016. Our current menu is based on a mixture of vegetarian and non-vegetarian ingredients and caters to a variety of special dietary requirements including Halal and Jain.
At our child care centre we build strong connections with families and children through a Key Educator Approach. This approach assigns a key educator to every child and family.
Goodstart Parramatta believes in community and the strength of relationships within that community, as such we hold regular events and special occasions for the children and families to participate in including Diwali, Christmas Party, Easter Hat Parade and fundraising events such as Daffodil Day. We look forward to meeting with you and your family!
