About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Craigieburn is located in a residential area, close to schools and shops as well as community facilities and public transport.

As a centre, we aim to promote children’s ability to be involved in enriched learning experiences through the assistance and guidance of our experienced and qualified educators. Children’s voice is an intricate part of learning which promotes further extensions and genuine involvement and connections between our educators and involved learners our children. 

Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all geared with this in mind. We also develop colourful, engaging programs accounting for each child’s individual interests, needs and strengths; and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
 
In all of this, is a strong adherence to the children’s voice – and being sure that voice is heard. So too, the parents and families.
 
This is made simpler through our intuitive Storypark platform, which - along with the more traditional methods of staying in touch with parents - enables us to maintain consistent and clear communications 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.
 
Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces – with sandpits, cubby houses, vege patch, bike path, climbing equipment and plenty of shade.   We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability – while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam.
 
We have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods.
 
Our strong connections with our local community makes possible a number of incursions and visits. 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.

We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family and learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.

Centre Director

Hi, my name is Sanaa Eideh and I’m the Centre Director here at Goodstart Craigieburn.

I have been the Centre Director at Goodstart Craigieburn since 2022. 

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services and have worked in this industry since 2005. I take great joy and satisfaction in overseeing the educational programs and care at Goodstart Craigieburn and spending lots of time with the children as well. Before becoming a Centre Director, I had different roles including Assistant, Room Leader and Assistant Director. Each role has helped me grow and gain new skills and knowledge.

I look forward to showing you around and welcoming your child/children to explore our learning environments.
