About Goodstart Yamanto
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Yamanto is located on the Southern outskirts of Ipswich and only ten minutes from the CBD.
We are in an ever expanding area which has undergone a considerable amount of growth in the last few years. With a brand new primary school opposite, a newly constructed transport corridor to Brisbane, and only a short drive to Amberley RAAF Base, our centre is ideally located.
Our dedicated and highly qualified early childhood staff are able to provide a stable and secure environment, with most having worked here for a considerable number of years. Our staff pride themselves on being able to provide a safe, clean, warm and caring “homelike” atmosphere where all children and their families are treated with the highest quality of care.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Toddler to Kindergarten - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines, 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 vision is to create natural and sustainable environments that are inviting, educational and fun. Our aim is to develop and maintain positive partnerships between the centre, educators, children, families and the community and be leaders in Early Childhood Education, continuously striving to achieve excellence.
A major focus for our centre is how working with the broader community can help us enrich the children’s learning experience. Through visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events, we are able to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.
We look forward to meeting you and your family soon! Come in and meet the team, take a tour and see how we can work together to give your child the best possible start in life.
