Our modern, purpose-built centre provides much-needed care for local families. Featuring six large and spacious six learning spaces that lead directly to the playground and a separate nursery sleep room, Goodstart Underdale is designed as a modern yet home-like, naturally inspired environment.
The playground is a nature-based design, with sensory gardens, mud kitchens, earth pits, dry creek beds leading to two large sandpits. The centre has a commercial kitchen with a servery to the outdoor dining area which allows our centre cook to serve and interact with our children and engage in cooking and preparing meals.
With a highly experienced and qualified team, our early learning programs cater to each child’s stage of development, from six weeks of age to Preschool-aged children. The curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and is tailored to your child’s individual interests.

Katice Martin Centre Director
Hi, my name is Katice Martin and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart Underdale.
I have been working in the Early Learning Sector with Goodstart for over 14 years and I am excited to get to know you and your family. My practices as an Early Childhood Educator have been strongly influenced by the philosophies and practices of Magda Gerber and Emmi Pickler and I lead Goodstart Underdale with a relationship-based pedagogy.
I believe that the children in our centre are central to everything we do and we focus on building strong relationships with our children and families ensuring they feel safe and secure in our service. We have a strong focus on developing children’s social skills and school readiness to help them make a seamless transition to school.
I am fortunate to lead a team of experienced, passionate and highly qualified early childhood educators who provide an exciting program to help children learn, grow and develop in a nurturing environment.
I look forward to meeting you and your family, I hope to show you around at our beautiful, new centre.
