About Goodstart Riverside Gardens
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Riverside Gardens is a homely and welcoming centre located in an elevated position in the beautiful Riverside Gardens area, close to the river walkway, parklands, and retail precinct. We’re also close to public transport and the local hospital, university and army barracks.
We’re very proud of our centre and have created a family atmosphere with laughter and love. Your child will have lots of fun here because there’s always something new to do and lots of spaces inside and outside to explore.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten, as well as before and after school care - 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.
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 three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. Children especially love our outdoor areas. Our four play spaces have a natural feel with a pebble creek, water play areas, vegetable gardens, chickens, guinea pigs and even a wooden boat. The children enjoy learning about and caring for these animals and our kindy children have their very own pet bird, Moe.
Our educators pride themselves on delivering a fun and educational learning experience for each child in our care, and strive to provide the highest quality care at all times. Several of our educators have been with the centre for over 10 years, providing a very stable environment for the children.
We encourage family involvement within the centre and have a host of special events and activities throughout the year such as Australia Day, Harmony Day, Pancake Day, Bandana Day and many others. We love to fundraise to support events and causes and have a special relationship with Ronald McDonald house. We support them by donating goodies, craft activities and many educators donate their own time.
We believe all children are individuals and develop at their own pace and are very committed to giving your children the very best start possible.
We look forward to meeting you and your family at Goodstart Riverside Gardens.
