About Goodstart Swan Hill Beveridge Street
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Swan Hill - Beveridge Street is a beautiful, home style centre located in a residential area, on the fringes of a commercial precinct, close to schools, shops and community services.
We have placements for 35 children a day in two rooms - Nursery - Kindergarten / Preschool. This cosy number of children a day allows for a more personal and family like feel for everyone who joins us.We have a wonderful team of caring and dedicated staff.
Each room has qualified staff that develop stimulating, educational and fun programs that cater for the individual needs of every child in the centre - all in line with the Early Years' Learning Framework. We offer programs that are developmentally appropriate for every stage of childhood and are individualised, based on each child's needs and interests.
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. Our playgrounds have sandpits, garden beds, vege patch, worm farm, dry creekbed, boat, and lots of shade.
Our cook Anne provides the children with home cooked meals made fresh daily in our fully equipped kitchen. The meals are prepared off a nutritionally balanced menu that caters for all children’s specific cultural and dietary requirements.
We believe that family is the most important part of a child's life and we celebrate this. We encourage families to spend as much time as they desire within the centre and do everything we can to bring every family's culture into the centre. We promote sibling interactions, regularly providing experiences where the two rooms join together, and offer family grouping sessions in the morning and evening.
We also work closely with many community services to help provide you with the most up to date and relevant information for your children.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your family and explore how we can support you on this early learning adventure.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
