About our centre

Join our happy community!

Your centre
Located in a quiet, leafy residential community, means we offer a warm, inviting and home-like environment for your child.
Our nurturing, knowledgeable and passionate team partner with our families and the community to ensure that your child’s first five years of education, their most important, are a success.

Our centre has four carefully planned learning environments, an open plan outdoor space with ample opportunities for physical activity, social connections and enquiry.

In all our rooms, from Nursery to Kindergarten, our educational program and practices are set-up in line with the Victorian Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standards.

Through sensory and play-based learning we offer your child the highest level of early education, while supporting and promoting their individual needs, interests, and strengths.

Your Team
Our team of passionate educators participate in professional development programs. They will be there to guide, enhance and celebrate your child's individual learning journey based on the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

Goodstart’s Key Educator Relationships means our Educators build connections with you and your child to ensure authentic, reciprocal, and supportive relationships. These relationships allow your child to thrive, knowing they are in a safe and respectful environment.

The extras!
Your child will get to participate in extracurricular activities, such as Incursions, life cycle of butterflies, life cycle of chickens (hatching from eggs), educated on body safety awareness for the 3–6-year old’s, designed for the children, educators and families, celebrations of all cultures Diwali, Chanukah, Christmas and many more programmes throughout the year.

We use the Storypark app to send you stories, photos, videos and messages while your child is at Goodstart and we also use the Xap forum to communicate with families via email.

To foster our relationship with our local community, we will be striving to participate in many community events and celebrations which also enrich the learning experience where potential restrictions allow.

Other ways in which we will connect with the broader community are through things like pen pal programmes, virtual visits from members of the community such as Emergency services, local grocers etc, we also encourage parents to participate in showing the children what it is that they do for their line of work out in the community where possible. We also encourage the children to participate in activities run by the educators to help with every age group developing their fine and gross motor skills through Yoga, dancing, outdoor experiences and much more.

This year we aim to have our funded 3-year-old kinder and funded 4-year-old kinder rooms involved in programmes such as children’s library readers for the children going off to school, MS readathon, Premiers reading challenge, pen pal correspondence with our local aged care facilities as well as encouraging some virtual incursions with local emergency services, as we are trying to keep the children involved with their community  and keep safe wdue to COVID-19 considerations.

The best way to see our facilities, meet the team and explore how we can support your child’s early learning journey is to book a tour.

Centre Director

My career in Early learning:

I have been the Centre Director at Goodstart Endeavour Hills – Barnsley Drive since February 2021.

I hold a Diploma in early childhood education, and take great joy and satisfaction in overseeing the educational programs and care at Goodstart Endeavour Hills – Barnsley Drive

I have been in various roles of the Early Childhood industry for a total of 11 years ranging from the centre cook, room leader to Assistant Director and as a Director. I have worked in a range of services both private and non-for-profit, in Australia working with children from birth to 12 years.

My early learning values:

Here at Goodstart Barnsley Drive we aim to provide children with a home away from home, a place where each child is welcomed and feels a sense of belonging. With a warm and inviting feel as you enter the Centre, we create a fun and family like dynamic where we work in partnership with our families and in conjunction with our culturally diverse community.

Children are central to everything we do, and we strive to create an environment, rich with learning opportunities, both indoors and outdoors where each individual child’s needs are met, and children’s health and safety are paramount.

What I love about our community:

The people! From a quick morning hello, to the amazing support given when we do a local fund-raising drive it is the people who build our community.

A little more about me:

When I’m not in the centre, you’ll find me spending time with friends and family; I come from a large family as I am one of seven children and I have 10 amazing nephews and three beautiful nieces. Family is everything to me. I enjoy baking, cleaning, painting, or looking for further study opportunities in varying areas, because I love to learn.

Why your child should spend the day with me and the amazing team at Goodstart Endeavour Hills – Barnsley Drive:

At Goodstart Endeavour Hills – Barnsley Drive we strive to provide a safe, peaceful, and natural environment that engages children's five senses, provoking wonder, curiosity and intellectual engagement.

Each week the children participate in a yoga class which teaches them mindfulness.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family.
