About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Pakenham is located in the heart of the Pakenham community precinct with close access to the shopping area, local schools, maternal child health centre, and the lake and local parks.

Our qualified educators are dedicated to delivering a high quality and developmentally appropriate, fun-filled learning program to all the children in our care. We offer a range of activities and programs to ensure each child is being challenged in all areas of their development.

Our centre features a library with books for the children to borrow out, a vibrant pet ownership program including blue tongue lizards and baby turtles to support our educational programs, and education in sustainable practices through the community vegetable gardens, herb gardens, and worm farm.  

Our play based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – designed for children aged 18 months to before they start school – 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. We are offer kindergarten children free swimming lessons at our neighboring facility, Cardinia Leisure Centre. 

Communication is made simpler through our intuitive Storypark platform, which 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, rock pool, dry creek bed, vege patches, worm farm, water tanks, mud patches, cubbies, bike path and lots 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 also have a cook at the centre providing tasty and nutritious meals for the children when tummies start to growl.

Our families enjoy coming together on the many special occasions that we host, such as parent meet and greet days, annual end-of-year celebrations, Kinder Graduation Evening and Grandparent or Special Person Days. We also host a number of different fun days throughout the year such as pyjama day, footy day, St Patrick's Day, and World Environment Day.

We recognise the importance of collaboration with families. Boasting two parent-teacher interviews each year coupled with extensive portfolios assessing and celebrating your child’s achievements, you are always well-informed and surrounded by caring educators who are ready to listen.

We invite you to visit our centre for a customised tour where you will see our programs speak for themselves – from the quality environments to the children’s happy, engaged play.

Jasleen Kaur

Centre Director

My name is Jasleen Kaur and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart Early Learning Centre Pakenham.

I began my career in early childhood education and care in 2013. I hold a Diploma in early childhood and education. I have completed my 10 years of service with Goodstart recently. 


During my journey, I had the opportunity to work with all age groups and connect with other early childhood professionals and teams with various roles. 


My early learning values:
I strongly believe that your child’s first experiences in early childhood education should be positive as it establishes their attitude for learning for their whole life. 


In my role as 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 stronger connection with families and the community.


What I love about our community:
I strive to provide an environment where children and families from different cultural backgrounds feel welcomed and accepted.


A little more about me:
I am the mum of 2 boys 10 years and 6 years old.  I believe in providing children with a rich environment, where they will feel safe and secure to explore, initiate learning, and feel free to express themselves. I seek to form good relationships with each child under my care and their families.


I am looking forward to meeting you all in person.
Kind Regards
Jasleen Kaur
