About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Darwin Airport is located in a convenient and easy-to-find pocket of the city area, close to a major shopping complex, amenities and community services.

We pride ourselves on the happy atmosphere that we create with our friendly educators. You can feel it as soon as you walk through the front door. The location is very central and we have families from the city and from down the track attending our service.

Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with many and varied areas and equipment pieces for the children to enjoy. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability – while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam.

Nayoung Lee

Centre Director

Hi, My name is Nayoung and I am the Centre Director at Darwin Airport.

I have been working across different age groups in education settings for the last 16 years in Korea, China, and Australia. I have been with Goodstart for around 5 years now and began as a casual Educator making my way through all roles from Educator, Early Childhood Teacher and most recently Assistant Director.

My academic background includes completion of a Master of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary) in Australia and also the completion of a Master of Education majoring in English Language Education in Korea. I am interested in researching in the areas of young children's literacy and numeracy, play-based learning, positive children's behaviour management, and second language acquisition and wish to pursue a PhD in early childhood education in the near future. 

The Darwin Airport team aims to provide a safe and engaging and challenging environment that is age appropriate. We make sure play based learning is developed through child led and intentional teaching practices. Our team provides a flexible routine for children to learn, thrive and explore their learning environment. I truly believe that supporting families and having continuous communication are important to build a trustworthy relationship with them. The Darwin Airport team will collaborate with all family members to support their children's successful learning journey and provide meaningful and fun learning experiences.

I can’t wait to get to know all the wonderful children and families here at Darwin Airport.
