About Goodstart Pooraka
Goodstart Pooraka is a small and homely childcare centre, licensed for 55 children and is located in the friendly community of Montague Farm, just off Montague Road. Our vision is to foster a culturally respectful and nurturing play based learning environment where children can feel safe, secure and supported to be themselves as they learn, laugh and play. Our families and educators are welcomed, respected and connected as part of a unique community providing children with the foundations for a positive future as they explore and discover in a caring and loving environment.
Our team of hard working educators at our Pooraka childcare centre are experienced, dedicated and know how important it is to nurture the unique personalities of each individual child. We strive to provide educational programs that cater to all the varying interests and needs of all children and keep detailed records in learning portfolios of all children who attend the service.
Our centre provides a Government Approved Pre-School Program during the school terms, run by our University Qualified Early Childhood Teacher. We also provide a complimentary bus service to local kindergartens for children who attend external kindergarten programs in the area.
Our centre provides up to 5 meals a day that are all nutritious, delicious and prepared fresh here daily. Educators encourage children to enjoy a range of physical activities each day including both active and passive experiences, depending on the needs and energy levels of children on each day.
We believe that childhood should be a time filled with wonder, laughter, learning and friendships. We hope you’ll come and see us and enjoy making your child’s early learning journey a unique, homely and educational experience.
