About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Crestmead Third Avenue  is located in a residential area, central to schools, shops and transport.

In our two buildings, we provide care for children aged 6 weeks up to 12 years old – with rooms from Nursery to Kindergarten.

All fully air conditioned, our rooms are set up in line with the Early Years’ Learning Framework curriculum. 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 separate playgrounds have a variety of resources, play equipment and materials for the children to use including sandpits, vege patch, worm farm, undercover areas and lots of shade. The playgrounds are safe and are fenced in with large natural spaces for the children to use to their imagination. This is all with an aim to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability.
 
We value communication between families and educators at Goodstart Crestmead Third Avenue. We see it as an important aspect and our team of experienced, dedicated and qualified educators work in partnership with families to cater for each child.

Qur intuitive Storypark platform, enables us to maintain consistent and clear communication with families. That means we are better placed to support a child in their learning journey, ensure parents have peace of mind, and time stamp the children’s developments, milestones and achievements. This, along with face-to-face, phone, text messaging and emails, as well as our monthly newsletter, communication book and daily routine books for each child, means families are in the know about their child’s development.
 
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.
 
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life. We would love the chance to show you around.

Michelle Jensz

Centre Director

Hi! My name is Michelle Jensz and I have been working in the Early Childhood sector since 1984. I have always found it rewarding working with children and appreciate their innate ability to learn through exploration and play. To see the look on children’s faces when they learn a new skill or knowledge is so fulfilling. For me, making a difference for children through quality educational and care programs is what drives me to reflect on practices and to always do better.

I am a firm believer of the United Nations Charter for the Rights of the Child and Early Childhood Australia Code of Ethics. For this reason, I use these documents to help guide decisions which will affect children’s care and education while in the service and community. Quality can and education in a safe, supportive, warm and loving environment is something all children should experience.

The early years in a child’s life are the foundation years. For this reason, it is important are given not just a good start but the best start to life long learning.  In the words of Maria Montessori: ‘The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.’

I look forward to meeting all families who decide to join us at Crestmead and hope to be an integral part of your child’s journey for a successful in all they do.
