Flinders Street prepares to welcome new families
Promoting sensory and play-based learning experiences is the aim of the team at Goodstart Melbourne Flinders St which reopened today.
A major construction project, which resulted in the development of an additional tower on the site, required the closure of the centre at the beginning of 2018. It reopens today with great views overlooking Elizabeth Street.
The centre, on the fourth floor, offers working parents convenience and is in a high demand area. It features an outdoor play space with a new mud kitchen and sand pit. Meals will be prepared by the cook on the premises.
Centre director Chelsea Snowden will return to Flinders St from her current position at Goodstart Melbourne. She started as an educator at the centre in 2015, before being promoted to assistant director.
“We are all excited to return to Flinders St and continue the great work we were doing there before the construction of the additional tower at the site started,” Ms Snowden said.
“We’re looking forward to the challenge of reopening and the opportunity to shape the culture there,” Ms Snowden said.
“It’s a very multicultural area and being inclusive of all cultures is very much at the centre of everything we do. I’m also looking forward to bringing more indigenous culture into the centre.”
“It will be lovely to get back into the centre so that my team can create learning spaces which are reflective of our commitment to children, educators, families and the local community."
