About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Norfolk Village is a purpose-built child care centre, just a short drive from the M1, offering flexible care routines and quality educational programs for children aged six weeks to 6 years. 


We are a five-room child care centre – catering for Nursery through to Kindergarten. We offer flexible care routines and quality educational programs which focus on all areas of development such as social/emotional skills, maths, science and nature, language and literacy, music and movement, self-help and independence.

 

Our natural outdoor area includes a raised seasonal vegetable patch where we grow a range of different vegies, fruit and herbs which are used for cooking experiences and engaging children in learning about the world in which they live. 

Our kindergarten is a Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program this ensures they have the skills required for a smooth transition to school. The program is available to all four- to five-year-olds attending Goodstart Norfolk Village and is delivered by our university qualified teachers. All of our programs align to the Early Years Learning Framework and the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines


We believe the rights of the child are paramount and encourage children to be successful, capable and confident learners. We value equity, inclusion and diversity as well as Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.


At Goodstart Norfolk Village, our educators work collaboratively with families and engage with the local community to create environments and programs that are inclusive, stimulating and enriching. The centre aims to promote safety, security and respect whilst providing opportunities for freedom, exploration, challenges and learning. We ensure that the role of parents is respected and supported and have high expectations for children, educators and internal service providers, and pride ourselves on our quality interactions with the children and quality programs. 


The introduction of the online platform Storypark allows educators to document and share children’s learning easily and efficiently whilst providing real-time opportunities to connect and communicate with families.

 

At Goodstart Norfolk Village, our vision is to work with families to support their children and foster imagination, ignite natural curiosities and instil a sense of wonderment.

Kim Baynham

Centre Director

Hi there! My name is Kim and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Norfolk Village.

As Centre Director, I would like to welcome you to Goodstart Early Learning Centre Norfolk Village and introduce myself - Kim

I have over 22 years teaching and management experience in a variety of early childhood centres both in New Zealand and the Gold Coast.  I have had the opportunity in both countries to support and lead a range of centres.

As a mature student, I graduated from the Auckland College of Education in 2001 with a Bachelor of Education (Teaching) in Early Childhood Education.  Before I started my study, I was for many years as a personal assistant for a management consultant who specialised in training senior management in areas such as customer service, communication, leadership and teamwork.  I highly value the importance of relationships and one of my strengths that contributes to the development of relationships is my communication skills. 

Excellent, open, and respectful communication is the foundation for relationship building and I thrive on developing excellent relationships with everyone I interact with (colleagues, children, families and community groups) through honest, open and empathetic communication.

I am passionate about the NZ Early Childhood Curriculum (Te Whāriki), as they see a child as “competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they made a valued contribution to society”.  This is, of course, in line with The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) whose goal is for all “young Australians (to) become confident and creative learners, successful lifelong learners and active and informed members of the community”.  I strongly believe the image of the child is extremely important as it impacts on how we interact with children and the environment we provide for them.

I look forward to meeting and welcoming everyone into our beautiful centre.
