Questions answered

  • Goodstart is now offering more flexible sessions of child care. Choose between a 9 hour, 10 hour or all day session. Your session window is the set start time and end time for a session at your centre.                        

  • We understand your schedule can sometimes get complicated by unplanned delays, so we're offering a grace period either side of your daily session times. If you opt for the all-day session, this runs for the duration of your centre's opening hours so no grace period applies.
