About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Nightcliff is located in the heart of our community with easy access to local schools, shops and public transport. We have plenty of parking too, so that takes the stress out of the daily drop-off and pick-up. Our centre is located beside Woolworths Nightcliff and opposite Tyre Plus.

Our team of Early Childhood Educators works in partnerships with families and communities to provide an environment that is safe, secure, respectful and inclusive to ensure all children develop a sense of belonging.

Our educators are qualified, experienced early learning professionals who are committed to providing high quality care and early learning for your child. All of our educators have their Senior First Aid Certificates and Asthma and Anaphylaxis Training, and actively and regularly engage in personal and professional development to expand their experience and knowledge.

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.

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. With our climate, we are able to play outside all year around - and in the long hot summer months we have plenty of shade. Sun protection is something we take very seriously and sunscreen is provided.

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 are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity. Excursions and participation in community events, enable us to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.

There is nothing more important to a parent and a family than the peace of mind that your child is in good hands. Our goal at Goodstart Nightcliff is to ensure children have the learning, development and wellbeing outcomes they need for school and life.

I can not recommend this centre enough. Very clean and tidy. My baby is always happy to go, and her bonding with her educators is incredible. Their Educational Learning Programs are just brilliant, they do all type of fun activities every day, and I get always a warm happy feeling when I receive updates and photos of what they do during the day. The director and the staff are high quality humans. They care and look after every single family and child that attends the centre. Just a little big family. Thank you a lot Goodstart Nightcliff.
I would just like to take a moment to acknowledge the awesomeness of this centre. The amazing team go over and beyond to make it more than just an early learning centre. You can be certain this team will tick all the boxes you have for your child's care and development. The centre became a second home for my son not because of the duration of the time spent there, but because of all the warmth and genuine care. I'm so grateful for how well the centre director, Nafeela leads her team. The director, assistant director and all educators are extremely easy to engage and trust me you want that when trusting a team with your child. I always felt content knowing that my child was in the best care. Thanks Goodstart Nightcliff!!
This place is amazing our little girl is so beloved by all the staff. We get a happy surprise every day when comes home with a new learned skill. Kids spend all day doing all sort of wonderful activities that we as parents wouldn't be able to replicate at home. You can tell that all the staff is really passionate about their job and really feel for every kid and parent. I really run out of words to describe how happy I am with Goodstart Nightcliff.

Enrol now!

When every moment counts, make them Goodstart moments.
