About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Oakleigh South - Moresby Street is located in a safe and quiet residential area close to schools and local shops and community services.

Our Vision is for our children to develop a sense of respect and cultural diversity and to feel happy, loved, safe and secure in their surroundings. 

We believe in providing the best possible care and education to each child and ensure that all children are supported and guided through the first five years of their life.

Our educators aim to provide a nurturing and engaging care environment through our learning programs that are provided in all rooms that will support each child through play based learning. They scaffold children during the learning process to provide support and encouragement whilst ensuring your child feels comfortable in the care environment

Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – we provide play-based educational programs which reflect the Early Years Learning Framework. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
 

Outside, we have two areas both with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have lots of natural elements for the children to explore; sandpit, mud kitchen, worm farm, veggie patch, dry creek bed, water and trees. 
 
Each week we carefully plan experiences for the children to support their development and learning outcomes. Our teachers will write observations about each child and use a range of tools including app based assessments to write a summary for you about where your child is at three times per year. You and your child’s teacher will meet to discuss the summary and set goals for your child together. We believe this partnership in working together will support your child’s sense of belonging to grow and develop into a confident, healthy, happy child. 
 
Our centre is small and family orientated and we welcome parent input and participation at all times.
 
Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family events 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.
 
Come in for a guided tour and see the wonderful things we have to offer you and your family and let us explore how we can take your children on a journey of lifelong learning.

Shaheen Hulavale

Centre Director

Hi, I’m Shaheen Hulavale and I’m the Centre Director here at Goodstart Oakleigh South.

I moved to Australia in 2013. I have a completed my Master’s in Clinical Research (Pharmacy) and have worked in different sectors of pharmacy for nine years. 

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Leadership and Management and a Diploma in Children’s Services and Community Sector. I have been in the industry for eight years and have spent time working with all age groups and have been part of the leadership team for two years. 

In my role as a Centre Director, I will have the opportunity to lead and empower a team of Educators to provide high quality learning outcomes for the children and a strong connection with families and community.
 
I strongly believe in the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” and hence strive to provide a home away from home environment for children and families which is safe and secured providing a strong sense of belonging to the children and the families.

We encourage children to learn at their own pace through play-based learning in high-quality educational programs and have opportunities to explore their environments to build strong social, language, and emotional skills. 

I value parents as our children’s first teachers as my vision is to ensure that all our families and children feel secure and supported here at the centre A place where they feel safe, respected and supported and included socially and emotionally. Being a mum myself, I understand the importance for families to find a perfect place for their children where along with the children achieving their milestones can have their feedbacks and suggestions incorporated in the child’s development positively.
 
I love to connect with the wider community, families and learn about different cultures. We often incorporate this learning to educate our children and shape them into individuals who can contribute positively to the community. I feel fortunate to be a part of a great community where I can connect and collaborate with local businesses and schools for a purpose.

When I’m not in the centre, I love working out, going for walks or spending time with my family especially my two girls, most likely at the parks and beaches.

At Goodstart Oakleigh South we have a very strong and dedicated team of Educators, and we strive to provide a safe, peaceful, and natural environment that engages children's five senses, provoking wonder, curiosity, and intellectual engagement.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family along with my highly educated and passionate Educators and would love to explore how we can support your child on their journey to lifelong learning.
