About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Ashgrove is the original Goodstart Early Learning Centre and has been operating since 1988. Our aim is to offer a home like atmosphere which encourages children to feel comfortable and confident in their learning environment.

Our centre team are early childhood professionals who are caring and friendly, and most have been employed at Goodstart Early Learning Ashgrove for over two years. They believe in children learning through fun and play and encourage children to learn at their own pace through our quality educational programs.

The programs are based on individual, small group and whole group observations. Whilst we encourage children to learn at their own pace, we also monitor that they are achieving their developmental milestones. Included in our programs are areas of focus such as computer skills, maths, science, cultural diversity, language, creativity and the environment. We also offer a Government Funded Kindergarten program for children in their Pre Prep year. 

Our centre is family orientated and we welcome parent input and participation at all times. We have many families that have been involved in the centre for many years and take great pleasure in being part of these families, watching their children grow and develop, finding their own unique individuality. 

We share information and communicate openly to ensure that each and every child is supported as they grow and develop into confident, active, happy children.

When every moment counts, make them Goodstart moments.

Lash Assalarachchi

Centre Director

Hello, my name is Lash Assalarachchi and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Ashgrove.


I have been working with Goodstart for the past 13 years and absolutely love being an employee of a not-for-profit organisation that provides plenty of opportunities for our staff, children and families.

I have completed my Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and am currently studying Bachelor of Early Childhood Education through UNE.

I am passionate about providing the best possible care and learning environments for children in our care while building trusting, respectful relationships with our families. We acknowledge and celebrate the cultural diversity within our community that is embedded in our practice.

My goal is to have a centre that respects children for who they are and provides plenty of opportunities for children to grow while exploring and engaging our environments.

I would love to meet you all in person and introduce you to our wonderful and passionate team.
