About Goodstart Rowville Murrindal Drive
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Rowville – Murrindal Drive is located close to maternal health nursing facilities, shops, schools and residential areas.
We are passionate about providing the best care and experiences for both your child and your whole family.
We believe that communication with families is the key to a successful centre and try to develop strong relationships with our families. 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.
Our educators are qualified and experienced, and all recognise the importance of early childhood education. All of our educators believe in developing loving and nurturing relationships with the children in our care and forming a relationship based on trust with parents and guardians.
Our educational programs are developed to suit each child’s individual needs and the group as a whole. The programs – all aligned to the Early Years’ Learning Framework - are both fun and stimulating to ensure the children are happy and engaged throughout the day.
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.
Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with cubby houses, forts, sandpits, vege patches, quiet seating areas, a dry creek bed, drinking fountain, slides, a boat, climbing equipment, and lots of open space and shade. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability – while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam.
A busy child is a happy child! As our centre is only of a moderate size, all of our educators become familiar with your child and are aware of your child’s likes and needs, making transitions to older rooms and communication with families easier.
Our on-site kitchen provides hot lunches made from fresh ingredients every day, and we operate on a five week rotating menu which supplies the children with a tasty, nutritionally balanced range of meals.
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.
Drop in and say hello! We would love to make you and your family welcome and the centre and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.
We provide a caring and nurturing environment for all children aged six weeks through to school age. Come down, meet the educators and see for yourself how fabulous our centre is.
