About Goodstart Riverside Gardens WA
Goodstart Early Learning Riverside Gardens WA in Greenfields is located close to local schools, shops and public transport.
We provide a warm and inviting environment for children and their families and we have a number of educators and families from different nationalities. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality of care and with respect to the diversity and individuality of our families and their children. We have a passionate, experienced and qualified team of educators that are dedicated to working with children.
Every room is set up in line with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Stimulating surrounds ensure that the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory and play-based learning. Outside, our two playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade play surfaces with sandpits, climbing equipment, open space areas as well as lots of shade.
We also develop engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual needs, interest and strengths and with each step we are ensuring that the children in our centre are ready to take the big step into schooling.
We have a qualified cook who cooks fresh, healthy and nutritious meals for the children every day. The centre provides all meals during the day, including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The menu is displayed in the foyer for daily viewing.
Goodstart Riverside Gardens engages families through various forms of communication, such as our intuitive Storypark platform as well as monthly newsletters and events in the centre and community. We have a family notice board which provides up to date events and workshops within the community. Each room also displays a day board outlining what the children did on that day and who the educators were.

Jerina Esterhuysen Centre Director
Hi I'm Jerina Esterhuysen the Centre Director at Goodstart Riverside Gardens WA.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work, a Diploma in Functional Therapy as well as a Diploma in Early Childhood Teaching. I practised as a Social Worker for six years before entering the Childcare sector. I have worked in the Childcare sector for the last 14 years as a Centre Director.
I moved to Mandurah in 2018 with my family which includes three sons, from South Africa.
I have worked with all age groups and have been involved in all aspects of child development. I love working with children and believe in providing a warm, comfortable, relaxed and holistic learning environment where parents and children can feel a sense of belonging in a home away from home environment.
I am fortunate to work with wonderful children and their families with the support of a great team of dedicated, experienced and loving educators. We offer a range of learning experiences based on a child’s individual needs, interests and stage of development.
I look forward to meeting you and to build a long-lasting relationship with you and your family.
