About Goodstart Prairiewood
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Prairiewood is conveniently located in the heart of Prairiewood, close to several local schools. We are proud to be part of the Prairiewood community.
We offer education and care for children from two to five years of age. Our families and educators come from a range of different cultural backgrounds, and many educators speak a second language.
All of our educators are highly experienced, friendly and dedicated. We all strive to provide quality education and care, and aim to create learning environments that are safe yet challenging, honing the imagination, curiosity and creativity of the children.
Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
We believe that a collaborative and respectful partnership between parents and educators is vital, and we encourage family participation at the child care centre.
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 an on-site cook who prepares healthy and nutritionally-balanced meals, and we are happy to accommodate dietary or cultural requirements.
Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
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.
