About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Melbourne Central is located in the heart of the CBD and is easily accessible by public transport. We are close to everything – schools, shops, transport, and often Mum and Dad’s work, making the daily drop-off and pick-up far less stressful!


Our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are set up and regularly changed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework curriculum and we work closely with parents and families to ensure the needs, interests and strengths of each child is taken into account.


Our Storypark platform is central to our ability to maintain clear and open lines of communication between the centre and our families. Any new developments, milestones or even issues which might arise from time to time can be communicated to families and plans put in place.


Outside, we have a wonderful large space – and all of it, aside from our garden area is undercover. That means whatever the weather our children can explore and enjoy the fun of playing outdoors. We have a sandpit, bike path, wooden decking and a performance area, as well as a vege patch and other garden spaces. Children can let their imaginations run free all in the name of sensory and play-based learning.


Once playtime makes the children hungry, we have a kitchen and cook on site to provide healthy and nutritious meals!


Goodstart Early Learning Melbourne Central has highly qualified staff who implement a quality educational program based on children's interests, needs and parent input. We also have a full time qualified kinder teacher who runs a school readiness program. 


We offer 2 years of kinder. That's two years of continued high-quality early learning, playing and making friends. Everything your child needs to feel ready for school.


We would love to meet you! Come in, say hello and take a look at how we can give your child the best possible start.

Enrol now!

When every moment counts, make them Goodstart moments.

Emily Drenen

Centre Director

Hi Emily and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Melbourne- Latrobe St.

I have been working in Early Childhood for 12 years starting as a Cert 3 Assistant and then working my way up and holding my Diploma of Children’s Services. I started at Goodstart as an Assistant Director at Blackburn South where I ran the service on a Wednesday and then moved into the Centre Director Role at Goodstart Melbourne. 

My Early Learning values:
I am a nurturer and believe the best way children learn is when they feel safe, secure and supported. I like to run an open, welcoming and happy environment for families and educators, and you will always see a smile on my face when entering the Centre.  
 
What excites me about Goodstart Melbourne:
I am excited to lead a welcoming, supportive and friendly team to deliver the best program for your child and getting to know all the different Cultures this wonderful City has to offer. I am also excited to see which cafĂ© has the best coffee! 

A little more about me:
I love AFL and in Footy season you will see me at either the MCG or Marvel Stadium cheering on Essendon FC. I also love spending time with my friends and family on the weekend and going to the gym. 

I can’t wait to meet you and your family when you come for a tour of this wonderful service!
