About Goodstart Vermont Canterbury Road South
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Vermont - Cantebury Road South is a 55 place centre catering for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. The centre is small and homely, close to shops and schools in a semi-commercial residential area.
We provide a program which utilises the current Early Years Learning Framework for Australia. Our highly educated, diploma qualified staff are always more than happy to discuss this with you.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are geared to with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
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 mud pits, bike paths, swings, decks, bubbler, dry river bed and lots of shade make for a wonderful space for the children.
We have two pets at our centre. We have a Blue Yabbie who holds his position on the kitchen bench for all to say hello to. He is around 10 years old now! We also have "Bunny Foo Foo" who we have had for a little while now. He originated at another centre where he began his life from a rabbit rearing incursion they held. He is toilet trained and has full run of our playgrounds during the day. The children love him, although he has found his own little hiding spots for time out to relax!
We also have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods.
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.
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.
