About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre in Melrose Park is a 70 place early learning centre located in a secure but convenient spot, close to local schools and shops, making the daily drop-off and pick-up easier!

Catering for children aged six weeks to school aged children, we have four learning spaces at the centre - Nursery, Toddler and Preschool.

Our experienced early childhood educators and teachers deliver an age appropriate early learning curriculum tailored to your child's individual interests.

At Goodstart Melrose Park our Preschool program is evidence based and is specifically designed for children aged 3-5 years. The curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework, which is delivered by our degree-qualified Early Childhood Teacher. We nurture children’s collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking skills. Our goal is to ensure children have the learning, development and wellbeing outcomes they need for school and life.

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.

The majority of our communication with families is through Storypark and we find that this enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This communication also means that we have a strong partnerships with our families which supports us to tailor our programs to the children’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity within our centre.

Outside, our age appropriate outdoor play spaces and equipment are all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the natural environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability and respect for the environment. Our play areas have sandpits, natural gardens, a play kitchen and open space to run around - and everything in between - with lots of shade for sunsafe play.

Through key partnerships and tapping into the skills and talents of our families and the broader community, we are able to enrich the children's learning program with "real life" visits and incursions, as well as exciting visits to locations within the community.

Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.

Our daughter has only recently started childcare, so the transition has been tricky for all involved. Bronny and Katrina have worked so hard to ensure that she is safe, happy and having fun. We appreciate all of the hard work so much, and especially appreciate your time and kindness during handovers. It’s been an emotional time for all of us, but you have made it much easier. Thank you!

Caddie Louise Bellenger

Centre Director

My name is Caddie and I am the Centre Director at Melrose Park Goodstart. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and have worked in the early learning sector for almost 15 years with the last 10 years here at Goodstart Melrose Park.

My career has seen me be fortunate enough to work across all age groups and I truly see it as a privilege that families entrust their children to us, as a mum myself I understand how difficult this can be. I believe in providing a nurturing, warm and respectful environment within a centre where children can learn, have fun and feel comfortable to be themselves.

The first five years in a child’s life are so important and I look forward to working with all of our families to make those early years a special time for their children.
