About Goodstart Wavell Heights
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Wavell Heights is a purpose built centre that caters for children aged six weeks to five years of age.
We have five rooms which offer educational play based programs that run off the children's interest. We have 12 educators across our service, including an Early Childhood Teacher who runs our Kindergarten program.
Our team of educators are qualified and have years of experiences looking after children and working in early learning settings. The nurturing and loving bonds the educators build with each child creates a sense of security and happiness for the children and families, right from day one.
We work with our families to ensure we are catering to the family's and children’s needs, adding the little things that make settling and transition children a smooth process. We encourage our families to join us for play days and invite families in for special events which the centre holds.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, 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.
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 three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have sandpits, manmade and natural play surfaces, undercover areas, a play bridge, vege patch, digging pit and lots of natural shade.
Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We would love to meet you and your family and show you what we have to offer at Goodstart Wavell Heights.
