About Goodstart Woodbury Park
Our centre is located in the local community of Mardi on the Central Coast, conveniently located on Woodbury Park drive, across the road from Westfield Tuggerah.
We educate and care for children between six weeks and six years old across three indoor learning spaces. The learning environments at Goodstart Woodbury Park are designed with a focus on natural play spaces and child-led play especially utilising loose parts and wooden resources. We engage in excursions to Westfield Tuggerah and once a month our preschool children attend story time at Tuggerah Library. Our nursery children also go for walks to the local park for morning tea and a play using our four seater pram.
Our nursery learning space is a small and homely environment, where the educations work with families to follow individual children routines.
The toddler learning space caters for children aged 18 months to three years.In this enviornment, there is a focus on loose parts and natural play, incorporating children’s interests. We offer indoor/outdoor environments for children to allow them to choose which environment they would like to engage in.
Our preschool/kindergarten learning space features natural elements with a strong focus on loose parts. We are on a journey to remove all plastic resources from our environment to allow children to engage with open ended natural learning opportunities.
Our outdoor learning spaces include vegetable gardens - we use the produce in our centre kitchen. We also have chickens, guinea pigs, a bird, fish and stick insects that our children engage with and learn from. We are passionate about natural spaces and allowing children to explore our large trees, spaces of real grass and large garden beds.
Our early learning educational programs cater to each individual child's stage of development. Our curriculum is centred around the Early Years Learning Framework and is tailored to your child's unique strengths, needs and interests.
