I'm a relatively new staff member and parent at Goodstart Marleston, and during our short time here, I have been shown the care and respect I have been looking for, that other centres have lacked. My daughter is in the Kindy room, and for the first time, she is so excited to come to daycare. I cannot thank the kindy staff enough. They have so much heart and a caring mindset. It’s wonderful seeing our daughter get excited about going to daycare here. The teachers really make an effort to engage the kids and develop them in a very individualised way. Everyday our daughter is learning something new and I'm so pleased with the improvements she has made in such a short time. And as a staff member I love how friendly and welcoming everyone has been towards me. The Director is great and is so easy to talk to and is understanding of my uni/work life balance. I have already made such great friends that coming to work it a happy experience. I cannot recommend this service enough for any families or staff looking for work/care.
My kids have flourished since starting at this childcare. They are always excited to tell us each night about the activities and adventures they had. The staff are fantastic, they're awesome educators and great people. It's clear to see they are passionate about what they do, are a great team, and really enjoy working at this centre. Very highly recommend.

Centre Director

Hi there! My name is Julie Howard and I am the Centre Director here at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Marleston.

I have worked in the early learning and child care sector since 1994. I have been a Centre Director since 2004. During my years in the industry I have worked to attain solid professional credentials and qualifications.

I'm very passionate about delivering high quality care to all families and children within my centre. I also aim to continue to learn and grow as an educator and encourage other educators at the centre to do the same.

I believe that all children are unique and should be respected, and I thoroughly enjoy watching them grow and develop into independent little people.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family and discussing how we can support you and your child on the pathway to lifelong learning.
