At Goodstart our purpose is to ensure that all children have the learning, development and wellbeing outcomes they need for school and life.

Home learning is such an important part of the mix and that’s where Goodstart at Home can help! Goodstart at Home is a regularly updated online collection of fun and enriching learning activities and experiences for you and your child to discover at home.

Some of the activities and experiences are designed for you to play together with your child, and some might even let you take a well-earned backseat while they explore and learn.

Each activity has been developed by our incredibly experienced early childhood education experts, so you can be sure you are getting access to the very latest evidence-informed play and learning ideas and early years advice.

International endorsements

Goodstart at Home is endorsed by internationally renowned early childhood and education experts: 

  • My research shows very clearly the vital role parents and families have in supporting their children's learning and development at home. The blend of high quality early learning in centres and parents' supporting their children's development through a stimulating home learning environment is a sure recipe for children achieving the best outcomes for both learning and well-being. As an International Thought Leader for Goodstart Early Learning I am delighted that the organisation is being proactive in offering support to all of Australia's families through providing ideas, prompts and guidance in extending children's learning in the home.
