About Goodstart West Kempsey
Goodstart Early Learning Chid Care Centre West Kempsey is all about supporting and working with our families. Our location, over the railway line in West Kempsey in a safe rural setting, is convenient; close to amenities and transport yet still safe and sound to give parents peace of mind.
Our centre values the partnership we have developed with our families. Through this partnership we work collaboratively towards creating a curriculum that ensures learning experiences are meaningful. Our programs are all aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework and we have a well-balanced approach, meeting the individual characters and needs of each child.
Our centre’s vision is: “We are dedicated to the learning and nurturing of all children within our community and are committed to providing collaborative, high quality educational programs that support families.” It is a vision developed in partnership between the centre’s educators and our parents and families.
We have a four rooms within the centre: Nursery, Toddlers, Kindy and Kindergarten / Preschool. We have a cook on site who provides healthy and nutritionally-balanced meals – which is very important when the children are able to spend their days learning and playing in their group rooms or out in the playgrounds. Each yard has a strong focus on nature and sustainability with vege patches and a citrus tree, as well as potted plants and herbs.
Our team of dedicated educators and carers enjoy watching the children grow and develop; we ensure there is a continuity in the learning and care offered and from Nursery to Preschool we are focused on preparing your child to be ready for school and, moreover, equipped to be responsible, self-aware lifelong learners.
We would love to welcome you to the centre. Come and meet our friendly team and become part of our family at Goodstart West Kempsey.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Karin Roberts Centre Director
Hi! My name is Karin Roberts and I am the Centre Director here at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre West Kempsey. I have been at this child care centre since it opened in 2005 and I have worked in the childcare industry for 26 years. My experience is backed with a Diploma of Child Studies and I have strong experience working with all ages in the early learning setting.
I believe families play an important part in their child's learning and at our centre, we encourage parents to share in their child's learning experiences. We ensure there are open and clear lines of communication between our educators and the children’s parents and we foster strong, supportive partnerships. Parents also need support and I believe myself (and my dedicated and passionate team) to be sympathetic to the needs of families and we ensure the welfare of the children attending our centre is our first priority.
Come in and say hello. I’d love to welcome you to our centre.
