About Goodstart Springvale South
Goodstart Springvale South is a culturally diverse service in terms of educators, children and families. We offer parking so that you are off busy Springvale Road and we have a bus stop right outside our door. Our service has a long-standing team who are committed to providing the best possible outcomes for all children.
We provide a program that includes language, literacy, maths, imaginative play, physical play, science and social emotional play. Our program is both structured and child led to enable all children the opportunity to participate in activities that interest them. We also value parent input and feedback, encouraging this as it is such an important part of your child’s development.
Our service has two outdoor areas that children use to develop their physical skills. We have one for our nursery children and the other is for our two to five year old children. Our 'big yard' provides children the opportunity to play with children of different ages, and at times, their siblings. Our educators use outdoor time to implement activities that allow children to develop physically, socially, and emotionally through play. A combination of intentional teaching and free play stimulates children’s curiosity for learning and supporting their interests.
We have two kindergarten teachers at our service offering a four year old program and a three year old program. These programs ensure that children are ready to face the new world of school.
We would love to meet you and your family soon, so come on in and have look at our service and we can talk about how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.

Katherine Kovacic Centre Manager
My names Katherine and I am the Centre Director here at Goodstart Springvale South. I have been working as an Early Learning Educator for over 15 years.
My Early Learning values:
My purpose is to ensure that everyone who comes through our centre doors feels welcomed and included.
I am an advocate for children and their right to have access to quality education and care. I prioritise establishing secure, stable and predictable relationships for the families and children here at Goodstart Springvale South.
I want all families to have a great experience, so I am always happy to help them with their children’s journey and access any services or supports required to do so.
What I love about our community:
We have created a community here at the centre that filters to lifelong friendships and memories.
A little more about me:
While I’m not a work, I love spending time with my husband, my daughter’s and our two sausage dogs. We love going on little family outings and spending time with our friends.
Why your child should spend the day with me and the amazing team at Goodstart Springvale South:
At Goodstart Springvale South your child will be warmly welcomed. They will enjoy playing in our 'big yard', where our educators implement activities that allow them to develop physically, socially, and emotionally through play.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family.
