Enrolments are now open for three and four year olds starting Kinder in 2022.
Our on-site cooks prepare nutritious meals, so you don’t have to worry about packing lunch boxes. Plus we provide extra-curricular activities, hats, a kinder t-shirt and a Goodstart@home kit to help you with the day-to-day.Why Goodstart Kindergarten?
Studies show that two years of quality kindergarten are better than one, so Goodstart is proud to offer a two-year Kinder program. Ninety per cent of child’s brain development occurs before they start school. International research shows that children who participate in more years of early learning performed better at school than children who had no early learning. Plus, two years in kinder gives your child extra time to develop all-important social and physical skills, and an understanding of routine.
Give your child an extra year of quality play-based learning with their friends
Your child will benefit from Teachers who work collaboratively to support your child's learning and development
Be ready for school! Your child will be school-ready thanks to our inspiring learning environments and qualified teachers
Provide your child with the skills to set the foundation for the rest of their lives
Our three and four-year-old kindergarten programs are funded and approved by the Victorian Government, and the program complies with government guidelines and the National Quality Framework.

The staff are excellent, they really care about our family. Our son loves going to kinder here.
So happy with this centre, Lisa in Kinder is amazing as the rest of the staff at Goodstart. Thank you!
I love Goodstart Flinders Street. My daughter is in the kinder room and loves her teacher and friends. The staff are supportive and friendly. They are always so informative. The management staff are always so helpful. The centre is nice and big and has an amazing outdoor playground. So wonderful.
Very experienced staff, who genuinely show they are truly dedicated and passionate about the importance of quality in early childhood education. We just had kinder graduation yesterday and by far the most engaging event I have seen for the kids and their parents.
If your child is born between 1 January and 30 April, they can start four year-old kindergarten in the year they turn four or five
Children can start their two-year kindergarten program if they have turned three years-old by April 30.
Our dynamic, vibrant and inspiring kindergarten programs are designed and delivered by Bachelor-qualified Teachers. We incorporate play-based learning, which helps children discover, socialise and create all while developing valuable cognitive, physical, social and early literacy and numeracy skills. For more information about what your child will learn click here.
Our centres offer longer hours and more flexible options than many other kindergartens, including nine-hour, 10-hour and all day sessions, five days a week, 52 weeks a year.
There’s no need to race to pick your child up by 3pm; we offer our kindergarten program across the entire day. Which means greater flexibility in hours for you, and more opportunity for us to tune in to when your child learns best.
Our kindergarten program receives government funding, which links in with the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) reducing your out-of-pocket costs. We also don't charge for public holidays. If you need support in navigating your Child Care Subsidy our team is here to assist.
We also provide families with assistance to access support services in the areas of speech, language, behaviour, social skills or overall development where needed. If you are concerned about any aspect of your child’s development or learning, please speak to your child’s Teacher. All Victorian Goodstart kinder children receive a complimentary Goodstart@Home kit which includes access to home learning through a range of learning resources.
The Victorian Government Kinder Tick means that you can be confident that the program will be led by a Bachelor -qualified Teacher, your child will benefit from play-based learning, the kindergarten program is funded and approved by the Victorian Government, and the program complies with government guidelines and the National Quality Framework.
