About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Mill Park - University Drive is situated behind McDonald's on Plenty Road, Mill Park. Our centre is not far from the Western Ring Road and is only a short trip from Westfield and University Hill shopping centre. The centre is near public and private schools, shops and RMIT University.

We have highly experienced and qualified friendly Educators, many of whom are long term employees of Goodstart Early Learning. This team provides high quality care to our children and their families in a warm, nurturing environment.

Our centre is purpose built with age appropriate outdoor learning spaces. Inside, all of the rooms  - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities.
 
Colourful, 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.
 
Our Storypark platform, as family nights, newsletters and emails, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre.

Outside, we have age appropriate play spaces and equipment, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability. Our three play areas feature a variety of natural and manmade elements including sandpits, vegie gardens, worm farm, compost bin, climbing equipment and lots of space and shade to run around.

We offer a nutritionally nationally balanced 4 week rotating menu across all ages and through our educators and family community, we celebrate diversity and an understanding of many different cultures.

Adding to the sense of community we have visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events. Through this, we can deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.

Drop in and say hello! We would love to make you and your family welcome and the centre and discuss how we can start your child on a journey of lifelong learning.

Neeru Randhawa

Centre Director

Hi, I’m Neeru Randhawa and I’m the Centre Director here at Goodstart University Drive, Mill Park.

I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and have been in the industry for over 12 years - 11 of those as a Centre Director. I have experience working with children from birth to 12 years old.

I believe children are confident and capable learners, and we need to facilitate their learning by providing activities and experiences that are engaging and extend their interests. I love seeing children grow and supporting their love of learning. I am keen to make a positive impact in every child’s life at our early education centre.

Attending an early childhood education and care centre provides many benefits. Children have the chance to socialise with other children of not only their own age but across all age groups. They have access to dedicated group learning opportunities such as story time, activities, learning programs, show and tell, specialised programs, visitors from the local community and so much more. 

I love the people in our community. 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. Community leads an important role in children's learning, therefore, we regularly host family events such as Mother's and Father’s Day, Grandparents Day, date nights, and more. This encourages our families to come together as a local community with our team and we also host celebrations at the end of the year. 

We have meaningful face-to-face discussions with families every day to ensure they know how important they are to us. We build and maintain a good relationship with our families and provide comprehensive regular updates on their child’s progress, listen to feedback and take action based on it.

When I’m not in the centre, you’ll find me walking my dog or spending time with my family.

At Goodstart University Drive, Mill Park, we strive to provide a safe, peaceful and natural environment that engages children's five senses, provoking wonder, curiosity and intellectual engagement. There’s nothing more rewarding than watching a child learn with passion and wonder, and we nurture this at our centre.

Health and safety are extremely important and a priority for us at University Drive, Mill Park. We ensure all measures and protocols are in place and followed, including risk assessments, supervisions plans, management plans, policies and procedures. 

My team are professional and nurturing. We provide a comprehensive tour that explains all childcare centre information and learning programs, introduces our environments and team, and answers any questions the family might have.

I cannot wait to meet your family and begin this exciting journey with you.
