About Goodstart Richlands
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Richlands is located in between Richlands and the Inala area. We are close to major transport and road networks as well as industry, shops and local schools - making the daily drop-off and pick-up simpler and less stressful for commuting parents.
As a long day care centre, we operate extended hours to provide support to our families who work or study. Children can attend the centre full time or part time depending on your requirements and the availability of care.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
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.
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 natural gardens including plants and shrubs, shady trees, vegetable gardens and swing set to complement our forts and play equipment.
Our child care centre provides nappies, a courtesy bus and nutritionally balanced meals including morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
Our educators provide a safe environment where children can play, learn and develop in their formative years. In partnership with families, we nurture a child's development through sensitive guidance and extensive opportunities for play.
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 meeting you and your family soon! Come in and meet the team, take a tour and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.
