About Goodstart Wynnum West Crawford Road
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre has been a part of the community since 1996 and is located in a residential area close to Wynnum Plaza, the train station and local schools.
Our centre is fully air conditioned with two Nursery rooms, two Toddler rooms and two Junior Kindy rooms’ age groups as well as Senior Kindy and Kindergarten age groups.
We offer Before and After School Care for most schools in the area and Vacation Care during school holidays.
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; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
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 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 four areas have sandpits, dry creek bed, large verandah spaces, garden beds, a secret garden, vege patches with worm farms and compost bins, cubby houses and climbing fort.
We provide a nutritionally balanced menu of morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The menu is subject to change seasonally and to suit individual children's dietary requirements. We also supply nappies for the younger children and assist with toileting.
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 – as well as sewing classes - are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family and learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Gemma Green Centre Director
Hi my name is Gemma and I am the Centre Director here at Wynnum West, Crawford Road. I am originally from the UK, but I now call Australia home, after living here for the last 10 years. I have 19 years’ experience working with children and their families, gaining experience from Early Learning centres in both the UK and Australia and working with all ages of children.
Here at Goodstart Crawford Road, I am passionate about each and every child having the very best quality care, education and opportunities; all to enable every child to have the best possible start in life. I promote a community within the Centre, where children and their families feel involved in their child’s learning and development and have access to support and assistance services where needed.
Through welcoming and supportive staff, I ensure that each and every child feels supported and secure throughout their day, creating a home away from home, where everyone belongs.
