About our centre

Goodstart Altona is located across the road from Altona Primary School, close to Altona Train Station. We are walking distance from Pier Street where there are many shops, cafes, banks and the library. Our child care centre has been operating since 1991.
 
Our service caters for children from six weeks to five years old. Our centre feels very homely and warm, and offers large yards for the children to play and explore.
 
Our team of educators have been with the centre consistently, allowing them to build strong relationships with our children. Our educators are from a variety of different countries including India, Lebanon, Thailand, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and Australia, and share their cultures and languages with the children. We have a fully qualified Kindergarten teacher who provides a learning program aimed at getting our older children ready for school.  
 
Maintaining communication with families is important to us, and we keep in contact through a variety of methods including face-to-face interactions on a daily basis, and email notifications. Our foyer displays information and news from each of our rooms for families to view during pick-up or drop-off. We encourage our families to spend as much time at the centre as they can.
 
One of our focuses is on growing and maintaining community connections, and we work closely with Altona Primary School and Altona Kindergarten.
 
We would love to discuss your family’s early learning and care requirements, and how best we can meet them. Please feel welcome to contact the centre at any time!

Sarah Cooper

Centre Director

Hi, my name is Sarah Cooper and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Altona. I have been in early childhood education since 2005 and hold a Diploma in Children’s Services.

Prior to moving to Altona I was on maternity leave, having my first child. Which has given me a whole new prospective being a mum myself. Prior to this I was Centre Director at Goodstart Point Cook The Strand for 10 years. I really enjoy guiding and assisting educators, children and families through their Goodstart journey. I find it to be an extremely rewarding role which allows me to make a positive difference in the lives of children and families.

Our small centre has a homely feel and is really is a ‘home away from home’.

I look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you and your child to our centre!
