Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Tuggerah is conveniently located in a business park close to local amenities and services as well as the major transport routes to Sydney. Our centre opened in July 2005 and we offer our children a natural and modern environment which offers high quality care and education for children aged six weeks to six years – in rooms from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool.
With spacious, well-resourced play areas and air-conditioned rooms, our centre is a comfortable nurturing environment that focuses on developing the 'whole' child. Inside, we tailor the rooms to a curriculum based around the Early Years Learning Framework and tailored to the individual needs, strengths and interests of the child. We always encourage the children to learn through play and discovery and we successfully achieve this through our free-flow environment. An example of this is that we see the environment as a whole and the children choose whether they are indoors or outdoors.
Outside, we have large natural playgrounds with trees, natural shade, grassed areas, sandpits, mud kitchen, vege patches, a bike track and a sustainability area with compost and worm farm. All of our meals are enjoyed on the verandas surround the centre.
Our highly trained and qualified educators work in partnership with families to develop children to be life-long learners. Our families come from a diverse range of suburbs, as we cater to a lot of working families. We strive to build strong relationships with our families and encourage parent feedback and participation. We strive to work closely alongside our families to ensure we are delivering the highest level of care and education to your children at all times.
We have a great team, passionate about the role they play in the children's lives and are dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. We value integrity, excellence and respect - all of which are evident in everything we do. We pride ourselves on having a team of friendly, qualified, enthusiastic educators, who are always striving to keep up to date with the latest educational practise and provide a learning program based on the children's interests and needs.
We have a strong focus on ensuring children have a voice in and around the environment. An example of this can be seen in our documentation and curriculum planning.
