Fifteen preschool students will graduate from kindergarten and embark on bold new adventures at ‘big’ school next year. The centre is also getting ready to welcome new children to start their early learning journey at Goodstart.
All of the community are invited to the open day which will be held from 10am-midday and will feature dedicated activities and entertainment.
Educators will be available to talk with families about the high quality play-based learning programs on offer, and families will be able to tour the facilities.
The open day will include lots of fun activities, including:
- Face painting
- Sausage sizzle
- Art and craft activities
- Outdoor games
- Guided tours for the nursery, toddler, preschool rooms
“Our early childhood programs are tailored to suit every child’s individual needs, interests and strengths. We also focus on enhancing children’s awareness of the natural environment by incorporating sustainability activities into our day-to-day program in a fun way,” Mrs Paranamanage said.
“Throughout the year, children love having the opportunity to participate in excursions and taking part in other community events where they can develop their social skills and also can take pride in being active citizens in their local community.”
Goodstart Garran also hosts a number of multicultural events to create a sense of belonging and respect amongst children and their peers, including their recent Diwali festival of lights celebration which provided a rich and diverse experience for children and their families.
