Goodstart centres in Victoria receive boost from state government funding
Help your child get school ready
How to increase your child’s capacity to learn at school
"I just wanted to send you an email to let you know that you are doing a fabulous job with the centres improvements. It is now a much more welcoming and pleasant place to send
my daughter. Every single one of your staff memebers including yourself are supportive and easy to chat with. All the staff are always so happy and smiling and that brightens up my day when i have to leave my little girl. This also makes drop offs in the morning a more pleasant experience when you have a great team of educators there to help you.
When i arrive to pick her up in the afternoon she is always so happy and tells me all about her day and how much fun she had so thanks to yourself and the educators for making it that little bit easier with leaving her in your care.
""It has been a pleasure to witness the physical, emotional, and social development of our two children under the safe, secure, and nurturing care of the Childhood Educators at
Goodstart Early Learning, Mark Road. Having trialed other providers, it is evident that the team at Mark Road work together, prioritising the best interests of children and families.""
"“We love Goodstart Caloundra! Their staff are caring, positive & always friendly! I know that my daughter is safe & well looked after when I leave, and that's the most
important thing for me!""
"I just wanted to write to you to express my thanks to the staff at Goodstart Trininty Beach, for the last four years. Both my daughters, Lilah and Willa, attended Goodstart
and had very positive experiences. Most of all I would like to tell you of the feedback I received from the principal at Willa's Prep interview, who commented on how well Goodstart had prepared her for school. Willa was the first child he had interviewed that had completed kindergarten at Goodstart and he noted how advanced she was. Keep up the great work!
"Our experience of Goodstart Early Learning over the last 4 years has been outstanding. The care of our children is a priority and with both parents working full time it can be
challenging juggling the changing needs of the family. We have found the center to be a caring and nurturing environment for our 2 young children 3 and 5) Whilst the team of educators are well informed and professional and work hard to ensure communication is clear and up to date. We have no hesitation in recommending Goodstart Early Learning to any parents."
"Goodstart Ormeau is the best early learning centre in the area. Our son has been at the centre for 4 years, and we have watched him grow and develop, due to the
experienced and professional educators. The staff are warm, caring and are truly invested in the learning and development of each child. We are so appreciative to Rebekah (centre director) and all of the staff."
"The team at Goodstart Bowen have been wonderful. I have my two daughters attending and to see them learn and develop from what they have been taught and to be able to bring
those skills home. This is a true reflection of the dedication of all the Bowen Team. Keep up the great work! "
"We are very pleased with Goodstart Clayton. The teachers and Kash have been really helpful in supporting our son to transition from the baby room to the toddler room. The
teachers were very understanding and helped Ishan adjust when he was missing his grandparents who had gone back after a stay of 6 months with us. Storypark is such a great initiative! I enjoy reading stories and seeing pictures of my son's activities on this portal. Its also a good way to communicate with the teachers and to let them know what the children were up to during the weekend. This can help the teachers start conversations with the kids and hear about their weekend adventures in their own words. Keep up the good work!"
"My daughter started at Goodstart Glenfield Park this year, and it was the best decision I've made. I can't speak highly enough of the attention to detail that all the
staff show parents and children. They provide daily feedback of the day’s activities - which is great to know what fun activities she has been u up to!My daughter’s confidence is building all the time and the staff encourage her to develop at her own pace. Such a positive environment every day - I enjoy my my time at drop off and pick up. Good Start is more than just a childcare centre, they are such lovely professional, warm staff, and provide a nurturing and and educational environment. As someone that works in the childcare industry myself, I had high ex expectations, for the level of care of my daughter, which has well and truly be been exceeded. There simply aren't enough words to express how grateful I am."
"I would highly recommend Goodstart to anyone looking for great quality childcare. The educator’s are always friendly, welcoming and nurturing, which are all wonderful
qualities!They are more than willing to communicate and discuss my child’s day, which allows me to feel happy and satisfied. My Children always come home happy and with stories to tell about their day!"
"I would like to acknowledge the staff at Goodstart Thurgoona as being the most caring, understanding and patient professional child care worker's that I have come across
in the 15 years that I have had children in a child care based setting . I would have no hesitation in recommending this centre and their staff to anyone ."
"Deb and the team at Goodstart Hobart West have made every effort to get to know our family, ensuring our girls were able to settle into the new environment with ease. As
parents, we’re reassured of the quality care and high standard of play and educational activities the girls experience through the centre’s great communication with us."
"Goodstart Hobart West provides a fantastic environment for little people to blossom. From the minute you arrive you are welcomed and sense immediately the nurturing presence
of all the staff. They make it a priority to get to know your little one and understand all facets of their character. I truly feel that they are as invested as I am as a parent in providing a safe and fun learning environment that lets your little one shine. As an added benefit Goodstart Hobart West is also a new purpose built centre that has been designed addressing the needs of both children and staff, a truly amazing facility. The fact that I am greeted at the end of the day by a child whose only desire is to stay longer reinforces what I feel, that we believe we are lucky that we can be a part of the Goodstart Hobart West community."
"When I was returning to work my primary concern was who would care for my child and reflect my parenting style as closely as possible. I needed a centre with a strong
educational framework, learning activities, wide open spaces and most of all educators that genuinely cared for children, nurtured them and had their best intentions at heart. My husband and I chose Goodstart Early Learning in Thurgoona and we now have two children at the centre and we love watching them learn and grow in a safe, stable and caring environment."
"For me, it is the total peace of mind knowing I am leaving my children in a safe, nurturing and learning environment.The educators at Goodstart Early Learning Wagga
Wagga have become an integral part of our family, our children adore them and love attending the Centre."
"My son has really come out of his shell since starting at Goodstart Albury - Banff Avenue. He enjoys the varied activities, especially obstacle courses and art, and
responds well to the educators who know him well."
"I could not recommend Goodstart Banff Avenue highly enough. I almost have to bribe my daughter to come home with me each afternoon, and on the days she does not attend,
; she asks why she can't go there! She has benefited exponentially both in her social and educational development, and every aspect of the service we have received from Mel and her staff has been second to none."
"I had a chat with Mel and the wonderful educators who have been doing such a great job of caring for our son and together, we worked out a way to help ease him back into
the routine. They were very accommodating and allowed me to stay with my son upon arrival, until I felt he had settled enough that I could then say goodbye to him whilst handing him over to the care of one educators he has come to know well."
"My 7 year old son started off in the nursery, graduated through the toddler room, preschool room and is now in the afterschool care program at Goodstart Albury. The
fact that I have stayed with Goodstart for over 7 years is testament to my confidence in the organisation. The calibre of educators, the flexibility and the overall “happy feeling” you get from this centre is the reason why I have no hesitation in recommending to all families"
"Always friendly, helpful and caring for our child. Any questions I have about my child they can answer. Encouraging my daughter to develop herself with her communication
, imaginary aspects etc. I have noticed how advanced she is and this purely to the credit of the centre. Great idea to introduce supplied morning and afternoon tea, very much appreciated at no extra cost."
"Welcoming & friendly centre. Awesome educators. Fantastic facilities & activities for the children. Holly always wants to go to "school". "
"I have 2 girls at Goodstart Tatton who both attend a couple of days per week. I know while I'm at work they're having fun, learning and socialising. Being able to see some
photos and read some stories on Storypark whilst they're there is a bright spot in each day. Whilst it is never easy to leave your children with other people, the team at Goodstart are incredibly caring and make that transition period easier as I know my girls are in fantastic hands."
"My child is in the toddler room, she loves one of the main educators that much that most days when we don't go to the centre she pretends to ring her on the house phone
& tell her what her day's been about or what is happening, using her name & everything, it is truly priceless not to mention highly entertaining. We all love Kat & if she was to ever leave we would be devastated."
"The educators at Goodstart Pemberton Street do a fabulous job at caring and teaching my children. I leave knowing they are in the best possible care and are loved dearly. My
children mean the world to me and I believe they mean the world to these fabulous educators. Thank you so much for all you do for my girls."
"A standard of excellence for early education that will benefit my child for many years to come."
"The director, Emma Wheeler is a superstar, both the educators and Emma go way beyond to make your child feel welcome and loved. Loving the new changes to the centre
especially outside, would highly recommend Goodstart Atwell."
"Happy Child, happy parent."
"After having all my children go through this centre, they have always been attentive to both my needs and my children's needs. Embracing our culture, the children's
interests and strengths, I will continue using Goodstart centres."
"My sons centre is very child centered. He has a positive relationship with his educators and has eased into the routine of Childcare easily because of the amazing educators
. When you see the positive, fulfilling relationships that he has built with other children and his educators it puts my mind at ease. I know that this is the best place to begin his educational journey."
"Our children love going to kindergarten to see their friends and the wonderful educators. Every day brings a new adventure for them. We're very happy with the care and
learning opportunities they receive."
"Overall a good centre! I have not had any issues with the centre. The educators provided support to me and my family when I had a loss in my family. This meant a lot to me
personally. The director at the time had an amazing relationship with me as a parent and I was most appreciative of this."
"Goodstart Ringwood provide a safe, fun and educational environment for my daughter. Since she has attended this centre she has become more social, intelligent and
adaptable to new things & changes etc. I love this centre and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of placing their child into care. All the childcare workers are professional, compassionate and adore my daughter and all of the children. It’s really got a family feel, which I like."
"The educators are friendly and great with the children. My son has learnt a lot and become more out going."
"Keep up the good work Nicole & the team. "
"We have been extremely happy with our centre! Love the educators and centre director, so happy, helpful and caring. I'm pretty fussy about certain things, my
direction was listened to and carried out. Highly recommend it!"

rubs off on our children."
"We are very happy with Goodstart’s services and care for our son. All the educators are very lovely and always happy to chat and to fill you in at the end of day. The centre
is kept clean at all times which is a great peace of mind for us parents."
"My son, Locky, has attended the Peak Crossing centre for the last 2 years. The educators are friendly, happy and helpful and the facility itself is amazing
!!! Locky comes home every day with a smile on his face."
"From the moment I called Kylie regarding enrolling my son, I knew that this centre was different from the many others I had called and tried. When I met Kylie she was the
warmest person, so understanding of what I was going through, a new mother looking for someone to care for my baby whilst I went back to work. The educators in the nursery - Pam and Sharelle are the most incredible people I have ever seen with a group of young baby's and my son soon became part of the family. We are so happy to be part of the Goodstart Pullenvale family! Thank you so much for making what was such a hard thing to do, so much easier."
"This has been the only centre my child has been enrolled at since we moved to Bendigo two years ago. I cannot fault the centre or the educators in any way. The bond that my
daughter has with her educators is beautiful, I go to work everyday knowing that she is in a safe and happy environment."
"The educators are not only well qualified, they are fun and positive and have taught my son learning & development skills which have exceeded my expectations. I feel like
part of the "Goodstart Family" as they personally know not only my son but our family too."

educators have always been supportive and responsive to any issues. Cannot recommend this centre highly enough."
"My son is in the kindergarten room and he loves to go. The educators are very caring and supportive."
"As first time parents both my partner and myself were very impressed with how the educators at Forest Hill helped settle our son. It was only a week before he was coming home
telling us all about his favourite educator. Also, the time they take to recap our child's day shows they care about the children and parents as well. We are impressed with each of the educators our son has been involved with. He has taken a special liking to Adina which makes morning drop off easier for the two of us."
"I'm really happy with sending my child to Goodstart Daisy Hill. The educators and facilities are amazing and I would definitely recommend to anyone with children to send them
"What a fantastic centre - the educators are warm and welcoming, the rooms look inviting and there's so much for my 3 year old to do. In a few short months, he's gone
from being almost non-verbal to a vocabulary that astounds me! I'm so impressed with the developmental changes in my son, he looks forward to day care every day, mornings are a breeze as a result! Keep up the fantastic work!"

come so far due to their support and caring environment. After visiting a few different centres in my area, Goodstart definitely stands out as the best centre. I love that we are a part of the Goodstart family!"
"My son has been enrolled at Goodstart Labrador for the past 3 and a half years and has special needs as a Type 1 Diabetic. We have found that the director and staff have
always been so helpful and caring. The communication between them and ourselves has always been outstanding. He enjoys going to Kindergarten and being involved in all activities and like us, has built great relationships with all of his educators. We highly recommend this Kindergarten."

leave. Now he loves day care instead of crying before he even gets dressed in the morning."

program that is offered and how we are supported as a family. My daughter loves going to the centre!"

caring and nurture each child individually. I also have an older child at the centre and the educators in her room are fantastic. She has learnt a great deal in the time she has been there."
"The educators are so friendly and have made my child feel so comfortable. "
"Both my children attended the centre between 3-4 years. The educators were warm and welcoming and extremely helpful. One of our children has global developmental delay and ALL

The educators make every effort to accommodate and we appreciate it more than we can explain. The team is just awesome and go above and beyond."

chocolate (that’s a big deal). They instill so much effort and pride into teaching her so many important things. Abby is a very happy and proud child when she comes home from her day. We are happy parents and wouldn’t want any other centre to provide care to our daughter. Thank-you Goodstart Gawler South!"
"The name says it all! Good start Forbes really does offer a good start to your child's first years. The educators are amazing and offer continuity of care which was really
important to my husband and I. Our youngest child attends the centre 5 days a week due to our work commitments, he has formed close relationships with the educators and other children. Some mornings I cannot get him there fast enough, he loves it that much!"
"My girls have grown so attached to the warm and caring educators at Gumtree Pocket. It's so much easier going to work knowing that I have left them with such capable people."
"Oxley Goodstart is a lovely centre. Amazing educators and updated facilities which are constantly being improved. I couldn't recommend them more highly."
"My kids have had an amazing experience at The Strand Goodstart. Sarah and the team have really worked hard to make sure the kids have everything they need and the parents are
well informed and have peace of mind. When we first visited for a tour, we were amazed at how calm and happy the kids were, and how strong the rapport was between the educators in each class. We have absolutely recommended the Strand to others!"

"My daughter has been at Goodstart Kambah for more than 2 years (since she was six months old) and continues to develop very strong and caring relationships with staff and her
peers. She is confident and happy to go off to her 'school' every day and I know that is because she is getting the caring affection, playtime and attention a child needs."
"I reviewed and visited several child care centres before committing my daughter to one. I found Goodstart Helensvale to be warm, inclusive and a caring environment where

"Goodstart Pacific Paradise is full of lovely educators that make my daughter happy to go to the centre every day! Thank you Goodstart! We used to use home day care but relying
on one person everyday became inconsistent and my daughter cried on the way each day. We are very happy we made the switch. "
"The staff and the centre are excellent. They genuinely care for my two children. They've helped my child settle into a easy naptime routine, which we were never able to do
with our first child. I love receiving feedback of their daily routines via email, which makes me feel included in my son and daughters day when I'm at work. Lela and her staff are wonderful - if you are at all worried about joining the Goodstart family, please don't. Your children are in great hands!"
"The centre have helped my daughter flourish through my PND and they have been a great resource for support. "
"Our family has embraced Goodstart Dapto, our boy enjoys attending and has developed strong relationships with his educators, as have his father and I. We have also

"Our daughter feels safe and happy at Goodstart Early Learning Brighton and that is very important to us (parents). The same educators (team) year after year gives a sense of a
well managed centre where people are genuinely happy and natural at what they do best, caring and educating children. I personally feel the nurturing within the centre. Thank you."

"Goodstart Wendouree is an amazing centre. My husband and I have always felt so comfortable leaving our children there daily over the past 5 years and continue to do so with
our little baby girl. We are always made to feel welcome and the children come home raving about the fun they've had and the variety of tasks they've completed. Linda and all of the educators at Wendouree are approachable, caring, fun loving, and provide the most important care for our little ones. I personally cannot thank everyone at the centre enough for their help supporting and teaching our son over the past 5 years and for preparing him for school. We are very appreciative of all you have done for our family. Kindest regards Stacey and Leonard."

"The educators and director are always accommodating and have open communication at all times. We would highly recommend this centre to anyone."

educators are consistent and lovely. I have seen no staff turnover which says a lot about the centre itself."
"The thought of leaving our son at the centre made us very nervous parents, however he has really grown since being at Goodstart, his carers are wonderful and we couldn
’t ask for more from them."
"Sending my daughter to Goodstart Huntingdale was the best decision ever. While it provides a secure and safe environment for the children, it also encourages overall
development and growth of each child, considering their individual traits and personalities. The educators at the centre are very well equipped and trained to manage and groom our children into lovely human beings."
"We highly recommend Goodstart Junee for your children's childcare needs, long opening hours which are great for the busy family lifestyle, and catering for all ages is
fantastic. The wonderful educators are easy to get along with and your children are happy, this makes life so much easier."

spare bottle or a spare hat. We are happy with the learning programs. We look forward to receiving little gifts and artworks my son brings home (the educators help the children to make them). Thank you Goodstart Pialba you are awesome and we highly recommend the centre to anyone considering it."
"My partner and I decided to place our son at Goodstart Mildura, they made us feel welcome and comfortable from the very beginning. Our son has sensory troubles with food
and also a lot of anxiety, the love and care he received from his educators aruna and Lakiyah was amazing, they helped him overcome his troubles with food and made him feel loved and comfortable enough to become the best little man he could be. His anxiety is pretty much non existent any more and his zest for adventure is amazing, he always wants to make new friends and is so full of confidence now. I would love to thank Goodstart Eleventh Street for everything they have done for our family, with love from our family to theirs. I can't wait till our daughter to have the same opportunities that our son has had."

amazing and such a lovely place for the children to spend their days."

and she seemed to have a great relationship with the kids and the other educators."

full of happiness! Honestly I cannot fault them at all, they are AMAZING!! Sending my child to his old day care was always tears and tantrums, Goodstart is so easy, he is so happy to go and he has a blast every time he is there!"
"Being a family with two working parents meant using childcare wasn't an option. However using childcare was also one of the best things we could have offered our child in her
education journey. The opportunities for social learning guided by subjective professional educators has been invaluable and has helped shape the delightful young lady we call our daughter. She has learnt empathy, fairness and how to stand up for herself. The ladies at Goodstart Carnegie will always have a precious place in our hearts."
"I trust these wonderful educational professionals with my son. I couldn't be happier with how well my child has blossomed at this centre. The educators are amazing and my son
loves it there."
"Hannah, Kim, Alana, Jehan were great....... Very much communicable! Any problems would be fixed straightaway. All the phone calls were attended and directed
properly which is good. The best thing we liked was that the children in the centre were great. The child sickness percentage was very low throughout our time at the centre. I highly recommend Goodstart Clapham to everyone. We have already recommended a few people and one of our friends children has already joined the centre."
"Great educators and a great environment for children to grow and learn. "
"My son Ethan has been going to Goodstart Gateshead since he was 8 months old, he is now 3 and has absolutely thrived in this environment. He is learning all of the time
and amazes me with what he knows and what he can do. All the educators have been fabulous and so approachable at all times. Very happy with Goodstart!"
"Fantastic and experienced educators that concentrate on development and learning rather than just play. The focus and time dedicated by the educators to document a child's
progress throughout the year has been the best and we have been to two other non-Goodstart centres."
"Our son moved from Brisbane so he had a new house, new centre and no friends. The team at Goodstart Eumundi helped him settle in, and within a few months he is
thriving and has plenty of little buddies. He's never been this happy at day care, and it's a huge relief to see how nurtured he is."

for and respected. The educators in the baby room are an amazing bunch of ladies."

wait until I receive my daily email of what they have been up to that day. They go above and beyond my expectations and I am so happy that I have found such a great place for them to learn and progress before they are off to school."
"The educators have been so lovely and welcoming. I have been able to continue breastfeeding my baby despite working by coming in on my lunch breaks. During that time I really
got to know the educators and watch how they work. They are amazing! They take great care of each child and even with the challenges of certain behaviours, they are optimistic and always solution focused. I am so appreciative of their hard work and friendliness :)"
"My son is in the Toddler's room where he has been taken good care of by 'Chaman' and 'Kayla'. They are people whom I can trust with the care of my son in my absence. I would
like to thank them for their utmost individual attention whilst encouraging him to be independent."
"Lynn the Director cares about the Children and making sure they are happy. The educators care about making sure the children are happy. Kealba is a fantastic Good Start Centre

family and offer a 'home away from home' - providing us with peace of mind & stability during our busy lives. We would recommend their centre to anyone seeking part time or full time day care services for their little ones. We will be sad when our little one's grown up & we're no longer doing the daily drop off/pick up! We consider ourselves very lucky to be a part of their little community!"
"I am more than happy with my twins experience at Goodstart Halls Head. The educators are always friendly, helpful and informative. My girls were sad to leave as they were
starting school full time. I still have a child going there and she looks forward to it every week."
"Nicole runs such a great centre at Goodstart Mill Park. The educators are all so amazing and from newborn to kinder rooms they really care and support your child, with
each personal growth milestone to any emotional transitions, they are onto it, acknowledge and address it. This team is truly amazing!"
"My daughter has been attending Goodstart Burleigh Waters since she was 6 months old and she has now started school. I have been very impressed with the warm and friendly team
at Burleigh Waters and for the care and support they have given my daughter during this time. She will miss everyone very much. A great team!"

with them has been amazing. Nikki the director has always gone above and beyond. Sarah, in the kindergarten room has an amazing curriculum and my daughter loves learning with her. The portfolio I received at the end of the year was amazing. Thank you to all the educators at the centre."
"My son was with Goodstart for 3.5 years. In that time he excelled in the loving and caring environment and has transitioned easily into full time kindergarten. The staff
always had my son's welfare at heart and he has made many friends. I made the right decision in sending my son to Goodstart Hutt Close."
"All three of my children have thoroughly enjoyed their experience at Goodstart Semaphore South. The educators are exceptional and the centre has a real community feel to it
, not only have my children created strong friendships, I have also met some amazing people who have been fantastic support on the journey from infancy through to school."
"We never expected the care, personal growth and education my daughter received at Goodstart Lynbrook. I recommend them to everyone."
"After having our first son attend the centre, we didn't hesitate in enrolling our second son years later. It was like being welcomed home again by family, we
immediately felt at ease and reassured that the wonderful educators would be there to help guide us through our second child's development. When you don't have family members living close by to call upon, it really means the world to know that you have this resource with wonderful diligent educators and great facilities."

footing to start kindergarten. He possesses a lust for learning and is confident amongst his peers."
"Wonderful educators. Great communication. Always helpful and work around our needs with little fuss. It's so nice that meals are included. I couldn't recommend the centre high
enough. It's so lovely that we get a folder full of photos, educational reports and art from throughout the year. The educators are amazing!

experience as she is now reading and writing way beyond her years. The educators are fantastic and no matter how tired they are, they are always willing to take a crying toddler so their parents can get to work.

seeking help from a lot of different people, Goodstart West Kempsey has been the best support for both me and my son in working through any challenges.

was fantastic with informing us about the centre and helping me with the set up process. Molly was excellent on our first day, when Cam was crying she encouraged me to leave and call in 10mins to find out his progress. Dot was fantastic in the toddler room and Cameron developed a great connection with her. Both Carolyn and Leesa were fantastic when Cam moved up from the toddler room. I enjoyed hearing about my sons day from Leesa, she was very involved and so pleasant to speak with. Cameron had a very special connection with Leesa.

Upon returning to work, I have never once stressed about how my son was, I have felt extremely confident in how well cared for he was at the centre. This is coming from a natural stress-head!!"

; passionate and genuinely care about the development and wellbeing of our child. They are also incredibly adaptable with routines depending on the child's changing requirements from teething, nappy rash or fussy feeding. We can always be sure that the educators are looking for innovative ways to make our child's day more comfortable. Educators are quick to report any developmental milestones and excitedly report back during pickup. It's wonderful to share our child with warm, friendly and passionate educators. It makes having to leave for work just a little bit easier!"
"Goodstart Mount Martha is fantastic! My son started there when he was only a few months old, it was very stressful leaving my baby so young. The ladies in this centre

It is evident that all of the educators work together as a team with their main focus being the wellbeing of the children. We feel very fortunate to have found Goodstart Haberfield."

ensure my children are always exploring, learning and most of all having fun. The management and staff are amazing and I couldn't be happier."

say and his social skills have improved enormously as he used to be very clingy and timid. Now he has become a little explorer and cannot wait to meet new people."
"Goodstart Prospect Vale has been fantastic during the last 6 years while both of my children have attended. Over the time, Directors, Carers have changed but the work
ethic has remained the same. This centre places the children as their number one priority. I have never had a problem with ANY of the carers and any contact or request that I have made has ALWAYS been attended to efficiently and in a kind, caring and sincere manner from all staff. This centre stands out in so many ways and should be commended on their ability to welcome and maintain excellent communications with families."
"The best thing about the centre is that all of the staff seem to genuinely enjoy being with the children and show them great warmth and affection. "

child's best interests at heart & develop them, nurture them & give them the best care that money can buy"
"I've been really surprised by how happy I am with the decision to put my daughter Sadie into Goodstart Gatton. The programs are great, the staff are amazing, and I can

"I have been with Goodstart Chadstone since April 2014 when my son was 6 months old. The one most important aspect that hasn't wavered for me is that I trust the staff 100

"Goodstart Rockhampton is a phenomenal environment for my daughter. From the wonderful friendly greetings in the morning to the warm and heartfelt goodbyes at the end of the
day. I feel so comfortable leaving my toddler at the centre as each and every child is just so individual, respectful and kind. My daughter gets so excited to go to the centre, she rushes me out of the door in the morning and is just bursting to get in the gates when we arrive. She has never had an upset day, and I often have to wait for her to finish playing when I pick her up to go home. This is such a testament to the nurturing, warm and loving environment provided by each and every Educator who go above and beyond every day. I also feel so comfortable staying to play for as long as I like, we also receive great support and information regarding everything to do with my daughter each day, which is always so helpful."
"Our centre has a dedicated and efficient centre manager. Nicole has managed to create a caring, loving and compassionate culture at her centre. We joined the Centre when
our child was nearing one year old. My son considered his carers as extended family and truly loved them. I was fortunate enough to spend some mornings in the Centre and I experienced the staff to be, professional, genuine and kind to all the children and you could see that the children loved them very much. The ladies in each room work as a team and look out for each other, I experienced this first hand and this made me feel lucky to have these ladies in our lives. I believe we are forced in today's society to raise our children alone however having my child at this centre makes me feel as though we were lucky to have so many people in our lives that truly care for all the children. I truly feel fortunate to have come across this centre for the care of my child. We love you."

in the area, with an amazing outdoor play ground that keeps our very active boys busy."
"We love the educators at Goodstart Paralowie-Yalumba Drive. They treat my children as their own. My eldest has built a great relationship with a few of the educators and
regularly speaks fondly of them, this speaks volumes to me about how much he enjoys his time at the centre. The communication is great and I wish I could spend more time there with the staff. I have often recommended this centre to friends and will continue to do so."
"I really appreciate the focus on evidence based practice that means children are encouraged to learn through play. Goodstart Narellan Vale is designed with the importance of
play in mind and the staff do an excellent job of supporting the children to develop their social skills and play independently. The staff are incredible- they gently nurture and confidently support the children so that they feel safe and happy. It is very reassuring to know my daughter is well looked after in such a happy environment."
"From the start of choosing Goodstart Carlisle, Belinda and the educators in the Nursery & Toddler rooms have been very helpful and kind. They have always ensured that my
girls are happy and feel safe. If I have ever had any concerns they have listened and reported back to me on all progress that has happened. The educators also take a personal interest in the children that attend the centre. I would recommend Goodstart Carlisle to my friends and family in the future."
"I cant say a bad word about the caring and fulfilling staff at the Goodstart Churchill. Every aspect of the centre is amazing. Every Educator is amazing. "
"I have been at Goodstart Drayton for around two years. In that time I have built strong relationships with every single Educator, I cannot recommend a Centre more than
Drayton and I will not leave this Centre until my children start school. I have watched the Educators build very close relationships with my children, understanding how they both function differently and being able to help them grow each day. I have watched my children make great friends and have I have made great friends with the mothers as well. This Centre is my children's home away from home while I work solely to support my family. Without Goodstart Drayton I wouldn't be able to provide for my family being a single mother and I cannot thank all the "secondary mothers" who work there for taking such great care of my children and I will always be extremely thankful."
"A great centre with excellent staff that are dedicated to your children's needs and wellbeing."
"Our daughter has loved going to Goodstart Eumundi, she enjoys her days so much she has asked to go every day. The educators are attentive and very caring, they always
make the effort to keep us up to date on daily progress. Michelle goes above and beyond to answer any questions or rectify any issues quickly and easily. I highly recommend this centre."
"Goodstart Ballarat-Creswick Rd is a great centre with caring and loving staff, no complaints from myself or our family members. The educators at the centre provide a warm
welcoming environment and my child really enjoys attending and interacting with all of the other children in their rooms."
"My 3 year old Hannah has absolutely loved her time at good start & is very sad she will no longer be attending, this is only due to work logistics. The staff have been
amazing & she loves them. She's made some good friends & has loved the wide variety of activities!! Thanks so much!!!"
"I would highly recommend sending your child to Goodstart in Blackburn South. Their hygiene and daily routines are impeccable and the staff are genuinely passionate about the
needs of the children. I look forward to speaking to the friendly staff at the end of the day and finding out about everything they have been up to socially, developmentally and emotionally."
"My son Kaden has attended Goodstart Buderim since he was 12 months of age. During this time I have completed a Bachelor of Nursing and commenced work. This was only possible
with the professional and helpful staff who went out of their way to accommodate my shift work, whilst knowing that my son was in an educational, safe, nurturing and happy environment."
"Goodstart Calamvale is a wonderful centre that provides a stimulating and caring environment for children. Our experience with Goodstart has been extremely satisfying and we
couldn't have been more happy with the care provided."
"My child has built strong bonds with all the staff at the centre. The staff are loving and passionate about their job and you can see this by the environment they create and
how happy the children are. The children are always content and busy in the learning experiences the centre provides. "
"My daughter had a very positive Kindy year at Goodstart Early Learning. She is now (very) school ready and feeling confident about starting prep. I believe the teachers at
Goodstart Early Learning played a big part in this preparation! "
"I found Goodstart was best for my child. "
"We felt like we were family from day one. "
"We cannot recommend the centre high enough. They have always remained professional but have engaged on a personal level as well. When we drop our daughter off for the day we
know she is in great hands. "
"Goodstart Goulburn are incredibly professional and dedicated to ensuring positive outcomes for children. The staff are reliable, well informed and caring towards all
children. I would recommend this service to any parent."
"The staff are always friendly and attentive and they are always updating us on our daughter's milestones and achievements. I love that they have photos and details in each
room of what they have done that day. They have lots of incursions that the children can attend and the manager, Kenett, is great at keeping us up to date via email on future events. My daughter has really grown socially since attending this centre - I was worried at first as it was quite a large centre, but the staff listened to my concerns and helped her as she was quite shy and scared of the bigger kids, but that changed within weeks and she has loved it there ever since!"
"Very friendly and professional staff - always taking a genuine interest and keen to cater kids requirements."
"Both my daughter and I love the staff and the centre. "
"Amazing centre, wonderful staff who are fantastic with the kids. Gives me piece of mind when I'm working that my child is getting the best care."
"Goodstart Mount Isa has highly qualified educators who really care for and love my children. They are extended both educationally and personally, developing positive
relationships with their peers as well as their teachers. My children love going to daycare and Goodstart Mount Isa is the best choice."
"Thank you for your caring and time to help my son become a more confident boy. "
"Really happy with the centre at Quakers Hill. All staff are very caring and provide you with great feedback on how your child is developing and interacting. "
"The relationships formed between all the educators and both my children have been wonderful. I know my children are in more than safe, nurturing hands when I drop them off
each day. The staff are just as happy to see my kids, as they are to see them - they really are like an extension of family."
"Amazing centre, and lovely teachers."
"I have two children that attend Goodstart Lara and they are excited every morning that they walk through the door. The educators have been fantastic in the three years I have
known them and they treat my children with such affection and encouragement - my son asked me the other day if he could invite his 'teachers' to his birthday party!"
"My children have settled very well into the centre and have formed strong bonds with each of their carers. We have had some trying times the past few months as a family and
the staff and carers at Goodstart Logan Village have been fantastic in trying to assist us in minimising the impact on the childrens routines and development, providing caring and consistent care for the children as well as important feedback to us as parents. Thank you ladies, you are all doing a fantastic job!"
"The staff at Macalister Street provide a consistently caring, positive and fun learning environment for my son. In pre-kindergarten he has been learning through play and
song and I have loved watching his confidence grow over the past nine months. The staff take time to get to know the children and tailor the group activities to the children's likes and interests. My son is very happy here and I can't wait to see what he'll be doing in the kindergarten program this year."
"Your staff are very well trained, friendly and approachable. My daughter has been at the centre for almost a year and although she took some time to settle in, she's
come so far in her development, speech, social interaction and her meals. This is a testament to the director Mel, her 2IC and the Nursery educators. I feel that the educators genuinely care about my daughter. Thank you."
"The educators at Hawthorne make this centre such a special place. The warmth they have shown to my child has been so positive for his development and has allowed my partner
and I to return to work with peace of mind knowing that our child is receiving the best available care. "
"We are very pleased with the progress of our daughter. The teaching staff are excellent and she always comes home happy, talking about her day. She loves the teaching
staff and often speaks of them. This shows me that she really enjoys the centre and that the teachers are actively involved with each of them on a personal/caring as well as an educational level."
"My child loves going and requested herself that she be able to go everyday and not just some days of the week. She skips the whole way into Jindi and it takes me twenty
minutes to get her out of there - when the staff tell her "Mum is waiting to go home!", her reply is "I'm staying here!"."
"You will not find a more caring, nurturing and all around wonderful group of educators than those at Goodstart Witton Road. I cannot imagine taking my children anywhere
"Amazing sums it all up! "
"The staff are incredible and very friendly. They make it feel like nothing is a hassle for myself or my son. They reassure, cuddle and play with him (and all children
) which makes it less stressful to leave. The meals that are cooked look and smell delicious - it's great knowing that my son is eating healthy food which he enjoys. Thank you!"
"I cannot stress enough how amazing this centre is! "
"Our family had great rapport with staff."
"The most wonderful centre, full of care, concern and compassion. Everything you could possibly need in a daycare centre. Goodstart Highfields is more than a daycare
, it's a place where parents can feel okay about leaving their small people because all of the staff that work there, under the direction of the wonderful Erina, care about the children as much as the parents. It is somewhere that I would have no hesitation in recommending to any parent. We all hate leaving our little ones to have to work, but knowing that I am leaving my son in such a positive, fun filled, healthy and caring environment, makes it so much easier."
"We could not be more pleased with the quality of care or with our daughter’s development since starting at Goodstart last year, aged two. Her educators’ commitment to
developing children’s social and practical skills is clear, as is their genuine affection for the kids in their care. It is a happy and safe atmosphere in which young children can explore the world and their place in it. My daughter has blossomed there."
"Always friendly, caring & professional."
"Awesome teachers, educational and caring."
"As a parent, there is nothing better than knowing your child is safe and in good hands. The educators at the Goodstart centre are extremely helpful and friendly. The
educators and director look at each child as an individual, with their own strengths and needs. My son has been blessed with awesome educators who understand his challenges, and handle him with grace. Thanks Heidi, Emily and the whole team."
"Goodstart Ormeau is the place for your child. They constantly update toys and rooms to keep your child engaged. You get an email everyday detailing what they have learned and
what they played with all with fabulous pictures. It's a great talking point when you pick them up. The teachers are always happy to talk to you about their progress and what you can do at home to help support what they are currently learning. "
"Couldn't have asked for more!! "
"Amazing staff & environment. "
"This centre is amazing! The staff are so caring and attentive to the needs of my daughter, I couldn't ask for anymore from them! Thank you."

supportive. I couldn't recommend this centre more highly!"
"Caring and friendly staff."
"Upon our daughter starting at the centre the staff, not only in Nursery but throughout the centre, have been delightful to interact with. They are all professional and
passionate and that is something conveyed the moment you walk through the front doors. It is reassuring to know our daughter is in the best and most caring facility."
"This is a fantastic centre and Anna the Director was fantastic in finding us places for our children. The programming and feedback we get from the staff is great and our girls
love going to their daycare. It's such a good feeling when you pick up happy kids in the afternoon. "
"Excellent centre, both myself and my child are extremely happy with our centre. My child definitely shows progress each and every day, so I know she is in great hands!
"All of the staff here are amazing, I wouldn't want my son to be anywhere else! They are loving, caring, kind and nurturing."
"It's a great centre - welcoming staff and happy kids. "
"I recommend this centre to everyone, as the programming and staff are all top notch."
"The staff are cheerful and thoughtful. "

after and enjoy their day at childcare. Keep up the good work!!"
"Thomas loves daycare and we feel very comfortable leaving him in the very capable and wonderful care of Steph and Jess."

there and I would recommend the centre to everyone! "

"The staff have really helped with building my child's confidence! "
"My daughter has attended Goodstart Buderim for 20 months now. She has been diagnosed with ASD and the centre and staff have been very understanding and supportive of her at
the centre and with us as parents and a family. My daughter is always happy whenever I collect her and she looks forward to going to Kindy every single day. The carers there make me feel comfortable in leaving my daughter there as they are like a second family!"
"My daughter just loves it here, she never wants to leave, she cuddles everyone and is always so happy that tells me as a Mum she is very much loved and cared for."
"Goodstart Buddina have helped my 3 children settle in beautifully and once they were relaxed they really enjoyed themselves. You will be recommended by us to anyone searching
for a centre Well done!"
"I've been using this service for six years now, first my daughter now my son. Both my children have enjoyed their time here, my daughter especially. The educators have
made my children feel comfortable and safe and that's the most important point to me."
"Caring, friendly & highly competent."
"The closest thing to family."
"Fantastic place. My son is always happy to be there. "
"The staff are caring and friendly, they not only make your child comfortable but also yourself, making it easy to leave your child in their hands."
"The staff are amazing and trustworthy."
"Shiedow Park - Hutt Close has provided support not only to my son with development delays and confidence issues but excellent procedures in management of his asthma. The same
with my daughter. They have been understanding, flexible, supportive, encouraging and openly communicate regularly with me. Their program is new and vibrant with educators sharing enthusiasm and encouragement to all children - they love their messy play programs. The director and assistant director are amazing and always happy to help, supportive and understanding and will go above and beyond to help all parents and children who attend the centre. This centre has exceeded my expectations and will highly recommend it to my friends and family."
"I have had my son in daycare since he was four months old, and I was concerned about having to change his centre due to relocation. When Jack started he was instantly
happy to be here and did not take much orientation to settle in, this can be only credited to the great staff that work with him each and every day - from Jaz and the team in the Nursery room, right through to the Toddler room and also the great Chef on staff who make the best food which sometime makes me wish I was staying for lunch. Martina is always happy to say hello and Jack loves saying hello in the morning on his way in. I am extremely impressed with all staff and all aspects of the care they provide to my son each and every day. Thank you for taking such good care of my boy and also recognising us outside of day care, I have been approached by a couple of staff outside of care just to say hello to Jack, this is as important as within hours."
"Warm, nurturing, stimulating and progressive."
"Goodstart has made the big step of sending your child to daycare so much easier. Knowing that your child is in such capable hands, is going to spend their day learning and
interacting with other children/teachers, and is surrounded by a safe environment guarantees the process to be a success! Thank you Goodstart for helping my baby grow."
"Friendly staff. My boys are very happy! "

"Staff are friendly and love knowing about what your child is doing at home to provide a better service and program for their development skills at the centre. "
"Many thanks for the wonderful care of my child."
"A wonderful and nurturing environment which my children love going to. Friendly and dedicated staff as well as appearing as a very strong team. "
"Since starting my daughter at Goodstart Woongarrah we have had nothing but positives and the best experiences. The staff are amazing and so committed to the children. The
school excels in every area. I couldn't fault the centre and how easy they make transition processes. I am so glad we found them when we di"
"We have all had an incredibly positive, nurturing and fun time at Red Hill. My sons are intensely engaged with all the activities and adventures that have been a part of
life at Kindy. I have cherished the energy and input that the staff give the children. It has been inspiring watching my sons grow and develop, increase their play with other children and become slightly more independent."
"It has been a delight to us to watch Kahlia's progress so evidently demonstrated by herself at home on a daily basis. She has accomplished much more than we could have
expected in many educational aspects, and also in her social development which is so very important to us. We have been very impressed by many aspects of the school, one point in particular is the awareness, participation and student involvement in calendar significant and multi culturally significant days such as PNG Independence Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and more recently Halloween, only to name a few. It has been a pleasure to have Kahlia attend your school, and the professionalism we have seen in the day to day operations of the school and also in its administrative processes certainly relieved us of any anxieties that we originally had with Kahlia attending her first school in Australia and at her age."
"The staff at Linden Park are all so professional, warm and caring. Our daughter loved every day spent with them and it was a joy to see her grow and learn under their care
"The Kindy teachers are fantastic!"
"I can not rate this centre highly enough!"
"A very friendly and caring environment where my child was happy to go. We will miss Goodstart and the wonderful people there now that we are going to school. "
"Thanks for making your centre a place my son looks forward to arriving at every morning, the experiences he's had and lessons he's learnt. Now if you could help him learn
the days of the week he might stop asking to attend daycare on a Sunday!"
"It's a great family focused service that provides care, education and fun for my child."
"After eight years with the centre, the love and passion I feel for the brilliant educators and the spark for learning they give our children is hard to describe. A truly
emotional day, after eight years, seeing my littlest 'graduate'. Thank you!"
"The proof is in the smile. My daughter is happy to go and play with her friends and nine times out of ten she is smiling from ear to ear as I leave and she runs off for her
day of fun! In four different rooms she has never had a carer she didn't connect with, which means she feels safe and has someone who listens to her and makes her feel good about being herself. She is very nearly always happy and smiling when I collect her at the end of the day."
"The staff are really lovely. We love the centre, my family has been involved with the centre for the past six years and I can honestly say that I wouldn't want to send my
children anywhere else. They really care about the kids, are so warm, friendly and brilliant educators, they are worth their weight in gold."
"Beautiful centre full of caring educators."
"An excellent childcare centre with great staff. Makes us parents feel comfortable to leave our children for the staff to care for. "

going to "school" every morning."
"My son LOVED the staff in the Kindy Room. "

outgoing and can enjoy the company of others and make friendships. I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. "
"I have been very happy with the staff in the Nursery at Goodstart, Tatton. The educators are more than happy to communicate how your little one is going during the day and
are very accommodating to my little boys routine. Thomas comes home one happy and exhausted little boy after a day at the centre."
"Both my sons loved their time spent here."
"Absolutely fantastic kindy program. Kelly is engaging and focused on developing the children and ensuring they are school ready."
"Our daughter absolutely loves going to the Goodstart Early Learning Centre in Mount Louisa. Her teachers challenge her to learn daily and there isn't a day where she doesn't
come home smiling, telling us all the great things she has done. The teachers are nurturing, kind and have a great bond with all the kids. I would recommend this centre to any parent looking for a safe and fun environment for their children to learn and develop before they go to school."
"Extremely happy with the centre and staff, the staff are amazing, they have catered to my daughters needs and her development. The thought of having to leave her and
have someone else looking after her while I went back to work was really stressful, but the educators are wonderful, they went well beyond my expectations of her care, they made sure she was at ease and comfortable from the second we walked into the centre! I know she in excellent hands."
"Our experience with our centre is one I am more than happy to share. The staff are amazing, they really know all the children and cater appropriately to all their needs
. Nothing is ever too hard, everyone is friendly and approachable and they have taken the time to get to know my child and made sure that her learning and social programs are tailored specifically to her needs. They are fantastic with assessing and responding to her emotional wellbeing and make such an effort to welcome parents. We could not be happier and really want to say thank you to all the beautiful staff at Pakenham."
"My daughter loves going to care five days a week. The staff are always happy and you can tell they love what they do. She learns so much and her interaction skills are amazing

"One of the best centres I have been to. Well worth the fees with the amount of educational facilities and care my child receives."
"From the moment we walked in the door we felt comfortable to leave our child in the care of staff at the centre. Staff are professional and caring, building great
relationships with parent and child. The centre is well set up and facilities suitable for the child's age. With a fabulous outdoor area, children get to spend a lot of time outdoors. Our needs have always been met and I would highly recommend the centre."
"All the staff there know me by name, they understand my children's needs and concerns. They provide feedback about my children daily and most of all they are like a second
family to my kids. They enjoy going to the East Bunbury centre and I put it down to the staff there. My kids love the centre."
"Leaving your child for the day can be tough but knowing you have left them with people that will care, nurture and educate your child as if they were their own makes all
the difference. That's what I feel when I enter East Brisbane! It's a wonderful place!"
"The staff are super friendly and have a caring and loving attitude towards each child. The staff can see the wonders that each child has and help each child achieve. "
"I cannot rate Clapham Goodstart highly enough. The team are wonderful - professional, friendly, caring, flexible. The meals are great, and my daughter's
knowledge in the Kindy room this year (aged almost 4) has come along in leaps and bounds. We won't want to leave here next year to go to school!"
"My kids both enjoy going to Goodstart. They love the educators and have made lovely friends. The staff are amazing people who are engaged with the kids and tailor learning to
meet their needs and abilities. It is so lovely to know my kids will have an enjoyable day - makes drop offs much easier to manage! "
"Staff and facilities are great, my kids love coming each week. They have made great friends with other kids and relationships with their carers."
"It is wonderful to be able to leave our child where we know that he is learning things that build on what we are doing at home. As a first time mum I find our centre very
helpful in educating our child together, and encouragement in things that we miss. Thank you!"
"My children have been attending Bongaree Goodstart for over three years. The centre’s ability to have a great learning environment while the children can play and develop
their personalities, alongside genuine care for the children has been an amazing experience. The educators are very open and communicate what my boys have been doing on a daily basis and how they are progressing. The boys and I have both enjoyed their early years journey with Goodstart."
"My daughter went to Whitehorse Road for three years and had a great time. The staff were always happy to see her and she enjoyed the activities they did. It has given her a
good foundation for starting school. "
"My son has so much fun at Early Learning that it's hard to get him to come home with me! "
"The staff have been incredibly helpful, attentive and encouraging with my daughter's learning and development. If there is any feedback, they act on it quickly and
there is always a lot of communication between the centre and the parent. It's a great location, with great facilities and my child is very happy there on a four day per week basis."
"Our third child has attended Goodstart Ashgrove for one day per week since the age of two. We have been very pleased with the service provided including educational goals,
social support and emotional well being. The staff has been outstanding during our time at Goodstart and we are sad to be leaving and moving on."
"Goodstart Ashmore is by far the best Centre my child has ever attended. They really care about the children and they do a great job day in and day out to make your child happy
, confident and relaxed. All the staff are wonderful with Miss Kayla and Miss Jemma standing out as exceptionally great and Miss Melissa does an excellent job running the Centre and being available to the parents anytime also. Keep up the good work Goodstart Ashmore. You are all amazing!"
"My child was very clingy and crying all the time I drop him off, but with time and help from staff they made him comfortable to the extent that if we drive past the centre
on weekends he cries wanting to go in. He even mentions staff names in the toddler room that he will be keen to see when he transitions rooms. That means a lot to me as it shows staff are caring and children feel safe around them."
"My child enjoys his days at York Street. The staff are caring, friendly and approachable. The centre director always has time to talk with parents and is very enthusiastic
about making her centre the best it can be."
"Very impressed with the wonderful staff at this centre, they keep you very informed on your child's growth, development and performance. The learning games and
activities they encourage have really helped my son to interact with other kids well, and advance in any learning areas he was having difficulties with whilst at the same time having a lot of fun! My son has really blossomed since attending this centre and I am so appreciative for all they do and have done. Thank you!"
"This is a centre with a great learning and friendly environment. The staff are amiable and have great communication skills. They relate very well with children. "

"The centre has great staff that go the extra mile and really care for our kids."
"Both parents working full time is tough but our children are so well looked after by all of the staff at Goodstart North Hobart. It is like a second family and both we as
parents and our children are lucky to be able to attend such a wonderful centre and be cared for by such lovely people. "
"Goodstart Pacific Pines assisted my child to settle into childcare. Now he wants to go to childcare (which he calls school) everyday. His self confidence has improved and he
is very friendly now. "
"This centre is a play and learning haven for Alexandra. She loves coming here. The staff treat her with kindness and respect, always attentive to her individual needs. We
could not be happier with her care here, it is a safe and trusted environment for her to be in."

through every step of their development and I trust them all 100% just as I would family."
"As a first time mum, leaving my child in someone else's care was hard. But the staff have all been so supportive and seeing how happy and thriving he is makes me realize
he is in a safe and happy environment and that's all I want for him. Can't speak highly enough of the amazing staff at Seventeen Mile Rocks Goodstart."

always wanting to update us on our child's learning and work with us to further develop their learning."

"I have two children who have attended the centre, my oldest went through four rooms and loved every one of them and also all her educators. In the kindy room she excelled
all due to the kindy teacher. She is now starting school a year early as the kindy program has ensured she is ready. My youngest has been attending for six months and he loves going, he was a very clingy child but is now becoming more confident."
"Ms Polly and her team are an amazing bunch of super stars. That show genuine affection and passion when it comes to my daughter. I could not speak highly enough of them. "
"Red Hill Goodstart has been another home to my kids. Not in the sense that they're there all the time, but because they feel so safe, nurtured and invested in. I put
this down to the perfect balance Renee and the team have struck between kindness and a true commitment to the kids' development and their pure professionalism. We are a long-attending family, with one more year at Red Hill. When it's time, both me and my children will be truly sad to say goodbye."
"My daughter Georgia has been attending Goodstart Kuluin for 3 years and absolutely adores the staff and other children. She has been given the opportunity to learn through
play with help along the way from the attentive educators. I have always received informative feedback on how she is progressing via both written reports and verbally. The educators are so friendly and helpful with any queries or needs I approach them with. I feel this centre has played a large part in ensuring Georgia is well prepared for Kindergarten next year and school the following year."
"My son has been attending childcare at Goodstart Early Learning Pacific Paradise since he was four months old. From the very beginning the staff have been friendly and
welcoming, which made the transition from home to childcare so much smoother. As a baby, they were incredibly flexible and happily accommodated his changing needs with feeding, sleeping, development and play. As he has grown older the staff have continued to nurture him, guide him, and hold his hand as he continues to develop, learn and explore his world.The staff are genuine, caring, engaging, kind and always have extra cuddles to offer for those moments when your little one needs it. It is very comforting to know that my son is happy, safe, and in great hands when we need to go to work."
"Rhonda and her incredible staff have been looking after my son since he was six months old. They have been nothing by accommodating and supportive during the last 2.5 years

is in their care."
"Educators at Goodstart Magill are excellent. Bianca, the Centre Director is always really helpful, friendly and takes time to make everyone feel welcome including my
school aged child who doesn't attend. Lisa the educator has engaged the children in learning about planets. She has listened to their comments and continued the program as they have shown an overwhelming interest in the topic. What started out as learning about the planets has grown to include dwarf planets, the Mars rover landing and other new discoveries in the news. My four year old has told me so much about the planets. She even arranged a trip to the planetarium. I believe this has shown how child focused the centre and educators are."
"We chose Goodstart Beaumaris because all the educators in every room are warm and friendly, giving us reassurance about the positive environment we were leaving our child
"Goodstart Beaumaris has been the first child care centre experience for my boys, aged two and three. I could not have asked for a more positive start. The boys love going&
#44; and they talk about the educators and children happily between visits. Both the inside and outside areas offer a vibrant, busy, engaging environment. The best thing about Goodstart Beaumaris is the educators. They genuinely care for each child, even the educators who are not regularly working in my children's rooms. They all know the children by name! I found the educators to be very inclusive of all different family types, which is refreshingly positive. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the world of child care for my two boys. Thank you!"

"As working parents, we want to know that our children are safe, happy and thriving when we are away from them. We have been happy to entrust the care of our child to
the educators at Goodstart Woree Toogood Road for the past three years. In that time we have never found fault with the dedication, trustworthiness or abilities of any of the wonderful educators at the centre. It is so reassuring to know our child is with such competent, experienced educators who are also genuinely kind and caring. We really feel we can rely on them and we have never had cause to worry about the quality of care our child is being given. Tammy is a calm and capable administrator who is always a joy to deal with. Our whole association with the centre has been a positive and pleasurable experience and we will be sad to move on at the end of the year."

best option for greater interaction with older kids and educators allowing for smooth and more attentive educator focus. Our Centre Director is fantastic."
"The educators at Goodstart Townsville are amazing and I am so comfortable knowing they are taking care of my daughter when I can't. They have really taken the time to get to
know my daughter and they're like another family to her now, sometimes I think she prefers the educators to me! The learning and development programs are great, and the communication and daily updates on my child are really helpful and appreciated. My daughter loves going and I know she's well cared for and gets the individual attention she deserves, and to me, those are the most important things. I would definitely recommend Goodstart Townsville!"

"As a first time mum who read up extensively on child care centres, I was a little apprehensive at leaving my 3 and a half month old in the hands of a stranger with a room
full of children that were older than him. In addition to that, finding a centre who was interested in my sons enrollment was exhausting. At most centres we were simply a name on a list that could be easily replaced.The Centre Director at Goodstart Stafford Heights, Carly, contacted me regularly to advise our progress on the list and when the time came that we had secured a spot, invited us in for orientation. From that moment we knew we had made the right choice. The educators are welcoming and nurturing.I have had only the most positive experiences at this centre and feel as though our family have been accepted into their family."
"Goodstart Stafford Heights is the kind of child care centre you're proud to send your child to. From the enrolment process, to orientation and even a recent room change

"Goodstart Riverside Gardens is fantastic! The educators know all of the children by first names, they're so happy and bubbly and the children just love them! Since Jett
has started there he is so much happier, he actually runs to our front door and does his happy dance when he sees me pick up his daycare bag. The educators genuinely seem to love him as he loves them! One thing that caught my eye before enrolling him in the centre was how big it is, and how much room the outdoor area has. When I drop Jett off, the first thing he does is run through the doors and out the back and either rides off on the tricycle or plays on the obstacle course, so much for him. Julia, the Centre Director, was Jetts first contact with the centre and she was so bright and bubbly he took to her straight away! Fantastic service and a fantastic centre, well done and thank you!"

was. I love that my daughter has options with fantastic resources available in the centre and that it is always being updated. I'm very happy with my experience with the Goodstart Riverside Gardens."
"All educators and Centre Directors at Goodstart Riverside Gardens, have always been helpful. Being a single father and having my only child in the centre is a blessing
because as I learn to be a great father, the educators and Centre Directors help me achieve this by giving helpful advice and feedback on my childs development both verbally and via the daily routine book and also through the daily activities and pictures.

"I went back to work full time as soon as my son had reached 5 months and found the job I wanted. At first I was very anxious about child care especially considering this was
my first child and my first experience leaving Cohen for extended periods. It was tough! I think I cried every time I dropped him off for the first few weeks! Once getting into the routine and having the most amazing educators looking after him, I knew he was in good hands! I can't thank the centre enough for all they've done for us as parents. Seeing him light up when we pull into the car park at the Goodstart North Lakes on College Street makes me realise just how special this centre is. I've recommended to two of my friends who have recently joined the centre as well and couldn't be happier."

very daunting feeling. We met with the team from Goodstart Lake Munmorah and from the begining we felt like individuals, I knew that Ryan was not going to be just another child on a role! Ryan has developed in the safety of his environment, his peers and the educators who devote themselves to knowing and embracing his spirited, kindhearted and eager personality.

"Goodstart Churchill is a fantastic child care centre with loving and caring educators from babies to vacation care. The educators are amazing and provide a wonderful safe
environment for any child."
"The educators at Goodstart Capalaba Almara Street are amazing. Regardless of their position or room allocation they know every child and their capabilities, strengths,
favourite things and how to help them when they need or leave them to work it out themselves. When my son is happy I'm happy, and he always comes home happy from Goodstart Capalaba Almara Street!"
"Mason has been at Goodstart Drysdale since he was 5 months old. We have never had a bad word to stay about the facility or its educators, but more importantly neither has
my son. The educators at Goodstart Drysdale are like his extended family! Keep up the great work!"
"Being a full time working mum sometimes it's hard to keep on top of things, the educators at Goodstart Goodna do a fantastic job at providing a delicious menu for my
children to enjoy and are always willing to go the extra mile in making sure my day is easier, even if it means packing my children's bags at the end of the day. My oldest son loves spending time with all of the educators and has a very special bond with Miss Kelsey, Miss Kelli and Miss Sarah. Miss Lauren shows so much love to the babies and my son has made such a special bond with her, all her extra time to make the environment so comforting and homely for the babies really shows, as a mum knowing that my children feel safe and secure is an amazing feeling and makes me know that I made the right decision in choosing to send my children to Goodstart Goodna."
"I was looking for a small centre with fantastic educators and a calm, welcoming environment, and that is exactly what we've found at Goodstart Blackburn South. No
question is ever silly, no request too much and the team are truly cohesive and genuinely care for our baby and the other children. We feel so lucky to have become part of the centre."
"I would highly recommend Goodstart Camira to any of my friends or family, and can't speak highly enough of the educators.My son loves going to child care, and it means
so much to me that I know he feels comfortable, cared for and safe while I am at work. I love that the educators in his room also make my husband and I very welcome when we drop off or pick up; their open door policy means that we don't feel like we're stepping on toes when we come to spend time in the room."
"Very grateful we found such a good and fun centre. It would be hard to find a better one. Thanks Goodstart Merriwa!"
"The educators at Goodstart McDowall are fantastic, personable, cheerful and love the children. The facitilies are great, clean and tidy with a great education
program and nutritious lunches. I am very very pleased with this centre and would highly recommend to any parent looking for care."
"The educators at Goodstart Murrumba Downs are exceptional with their positive attitude and understanding of each child's individual personality."
"Putting your child into care is a big step both emotionally and logistically. From the moment I walked through the door of Goodstart Nambour on City View Terrace, with my
10 month old I knew I was doing the right thing for my daughter. It's been two years and she has developed so quickly and beautifully. It is all due to the amazing care given. The educators truly love the children in their care and I couldn't recommend them highly enough."
"Goodstart Narangba is my child's second home. As a first time mum returning to work and leaving my 7 month old baby was an extremely hard time. The educators and Centre
Director respected my needs and emotions and allowed Luca and I to have as much 'play time' together at the centre on the lead up to making a final decision of choosing a child care centre and then again leading up to the day I actually had to leave him. The educators have really stepped in to be part of my son's life and part of our family, this is what truly mattered to my husband and I. Luca has formed some strong bonds with educators and it is knowing that bond is there even on days he is chasing me out the door crying that makes me feel confident in leaving my child in the care of this team of educators. I am confident that the team at Goodstart Narangba meet my needs as a parent and my son's need as a growing little man."
"Goodstart Labrador on Gordon Street is a great place for children, it is like our second home. Through supportive and qualified educators, the children learn lots,
have fun and are loved. The centre is led by an equally fantastic Centre Director and I can't thank them enough. The centre is particularly skilled at caring for special needs children."
"Not only are the educators always friendly and courteous, but they genuinely care about the children. My son is always coming home having learnt new things, creating
new arts and crafts and making lots of friends at playtime. I would highly recommend Goodstart Estella to any parent looking for a daycare centre."
"I cannot say enough about how wonderful the educators are at this centre. Ella has been attending since she was 6 months old (she is now 4 years old) and I wouldn’t take her
anywhere else. Everyone is always happy and smiling, greeting her with a cheerful hello and a hug. She has advanced mentally, socially and emotionally with this wonderful team and we will miss them all when she progresses to school next year. It has been easy leaving her during the day with a team that I know care about her and I would recommend Goodstart Nambour City View Terrace to anyone."
"Our eldest child was at Goodstart Carindale for a few years and now, we have our second child there too. As parents, we are very thankful for discovering this centre
as the educators are just lovely, down to earth, really family oriented and most importantly fantastic with kids. The facilities at the centre are nice, clean and it has an awesome outdoor play area with lots of shades. What matters most to us is that our children are loved and cared for and we have to say that its educators certainly delivers that. So thank you so much for giving us the peace of mind by taking such good care of our children and we are truly grateful for it."
"We had some experience with other childcare centres before moving our eldest to Goodstart Carindale. We were very impressed with the facilities, room set up and care and
attention the educators provided to the children within a loving and friendly environment. Our second child will start at Carindale soon and we are looking forward to her also receiving some great care and early education. We also like the confidence we feel with the educators and their commitment to the children. We would definitely (and have done) recommend Goodstart Carindale to other families."
"After trying several other child care centres in the area, I thankfully found Goodstart Halls Head. I have used Goodstart Halls Head to care for my children for almost 4
years now and I couldn’t be happier with the care my children have received. The centre is clean and tidy, it’s professional, and the educators are so caring and consistent. Having moved to Australia from the UK, I have no family here to babysit and I am very fussy about who looks after my children, so all of these things are important. Jo, the Centre Director, really cares for the children and is not just in it for the money, which I found to be a problem at other centres. She understands what it’s like to be a working parent and really does try her best to accommodate changes in your schedule etc. Thank you Goodstart Halls Head."
"We love Goodstart Wynnum West Wondall Road. Having my daughter (now 9) going to this centre from when she turned 1 until pre-school showed me the educators here really care
about each individual child’s needs. The educators are loving and supportive to all the children, and when we had our son 7 years later, it gave me the confidence and trust to have him at the same centre. It’s a great feeling knowing my son is cared for and educated every day by such a friendly, encouraging team."
"The team at Wynnum West Wondall Road are fantastic! Not only does my daughter love it there – they even asked for a list of Norwegian words so they could assist in teaching my
daughter both the languages she speaks at home. How amazing is that?"
"This is the best centre I have ever been to with awesome passionate and committed educators."
"My two children have both attended Goodstart Halls Head. My experience with the child care centre has always been positive. I find the educators are caring and show interest
in my child. I feel that after attending the centre, both my children have had the opportunity to develop their social skills and engage in a range of interesting and fun educational experiences that have prepared them for starting school. This has happened in a caring environment with staff that show a genuine interest and concern. I would definitely recommend Goodstart Halls Head to other parents."
"Goodstart Halls Head is an excellent centre. It has a real family atmosphere, which is perfectly balanced with professionalism throughout. All those involved in the child
care centre are fantastic, very friendly, approachable and supportive. The learning programs, techniques and equipment used are excellent and in abundance. A recent example of this is when my 3.5-year-old daughter came home and told me all about the ANZAC soldiers and how we must bow our heads and wear our poppies and bake ANZAC cookies – her understanding and enthusiasm blew me away. The facilities and equipment are outstanding and very well maintained. The kitchen staff are great – my daughter eats so well when she’s at the centre. They provide a healthy variety of meals that are freshly prepared. My daughter really enjoys her time at Goodstart Halls Head, which is a huge reassurance to me. We love the centre and all of its educators. Well done to all the team at Goodstart Halls Head."
"My husband and I are very impressed with the staff and communication at Goodstart Lynbrook. The carers always take the time to have a quick chat at pick-up about my child’s
day. The communication book with photos and daily routine is also so reassuring and something I look forward to reading each evening. Feeling that the staff genuinely care for my child is so important. It’s not easy for parents to leave their child with strangers and my transition was met with understanding and patience from the staff and director. Very happy with Goodstart Lynbrook. Keep up the communication, friendly staff and genuine care. I know my son is in good hands. :)"
"Goodstart Shakespeare Street has been my childcare provider for the past two years, and most recently, I have had two children attending the centre.I could not be any
happier with the staff, and find them all courteous, attentive and friendly. Each educator has taken the time to become familiar with my children and make them feel comfortable at the centre. It certainly makes leaving your children at day care a lot easier with wonderful staff! I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks Amanda and team."
"My son has been coming to Goodstart Capalaba Almara Street since he was 4 months of age and he is now turning 5 in August. Watching my son grow up with the ladies at the
centre has been a great pleasure. They have treated him like family, as they do with all the children that come into the centre. They always greet both myself and my son and other families with a friendly face, showing the love for each and every one of the families. The educators at Goodstart Capalaba Almara Street are wonderful and caring and I feel safe leaving my son with them as I know that they will protect him no matter what. My son has also developed a connection with each one of the ladies and always asks to see them on the weekends. Thank you so much ladies for being there for my son and helping with his learning and growth."
"My son, Leo, has been attending Goodstart Capalaba Almara Street for close to 3 years now. I couldn’t have imagined a better place for Leo to spend the 3 days a week
he does. First of all, the educators are amazing. Most of them have been there since Leo started at the centre, so he trusts, loves and respects them. They all know Leo well and always treat him as an individual, not just one of a group of children. They always show kindness to myself and Leo and are always available for a chat if I have any concerns or just for general updates. The carer-to-child ratio is high, which is a relief for me as I know the educators know what my son is doing at all times and he is safe. With the educational plans and the equipment and toys, there is always something fun for the children to do. Leo loves going to Goodstart Capalaba Almara Street!"
"Two years ago, we moved to the neighbourhood and were faced with the challenge of relocating our little boy to a new child care centre. As full-time working parents,
; it was essential to find a centre that not only provided great quality care but also great emotional care. It did not take long for him to settle in at Goodstart Carnegie, due to the great educators in the baby room, which gave me peace of mind for the rest of the day knowing that my son was in a place where he was happy and well cared for. He has learned so much whilst being here. He sings songs, dances and plays soccer, and when I pick him up at the end of the day, he can’t stop talking about all of his adventures. The other night, we were FaceTiming his grandma and when we finished chatting to his granny he asked if we could FaceTime one of his teachers, Pattie, as he wanted to wish her a good night."
"The educators are excellent, attentive, compassionate and professional.Educators are committed professionals who do a great job. The food and menus are excellent
. The cook is wonderful and prepares excellent meals at Goodstart Coorparoo Tiber Street.We are very happy with the centre."
"Goodstart Alexandra Hills has excellent educators which gives me peace of mind knowing my son is in the best of hands. A very well run centre, highly recommended."
"My family has been part of Goodstart Belmont for 7 years. It has been involved in a large part of all 3 of my children’s lives. The kids love going to Goodstart Belmont and
the educators all know who my children are, even after some have been to school for a while.The educators show genuine care and compassion and are excited to see my children in the morning, greeting them with a smile and a cuddle.I have enjoyed my time so far as a parent of Goodstart Belmont and am expecting to be there for a while longer (I have an 8-month-old child)."
"We enrolled our daughter at Goodstart Sinnamon Park when she was 8 months old. She is now almost 3 years old in the Kindy Room. She absolutely loves day care and we have been
extremely impressed with the ongoing care and education this child care centre provides. The educators are fantastic, genuine and professional. We are very happy with our daughter’s development and progress to date."
"Jarryd and I are extremely happy with the service provided at Goodstart Toowoomba Spring Street.We both go to work every day knowing that our son will be cared for by your
educators just like he would be if he was at home with us but in his eyes it is even better as he gets to spend the days with all of his friends!All educators are loving and understanding of Harrisons feelings each and every day as being a 3 year old can be extremely hard some days.I am so thankful to everyone at Goodstart Toowoomba Spring street for always giving Harrison the very best care."
"We have been using Goodstart Carnegie as a family for over 4-and-a-half years. We love the family feel of the centre and that everyone knows your name. The educators are
fantastic and are very thorough about the learning and development of all the children at the centre. It makes us feel comfortable every day knowing that our children are in great care."
"I first walked into Goodstart Carnegie in June 2007 and left for the last time in December 2014. Seven and a half years of trusting my 2 daughters’ to the wonderful learning
facilitators at Goodstart Carnegie. They provide an environment to facilitate children's exploration, learning and development with the utmost expertise, love, care and professionalism. I highly recommended the centre."
"My daughter Aleera is in the kindergarten room at Goodstart Toowoomba Spring Street and I am extremely happy with how she is progressing. The teachers for the room, Sommer
and Peta are both very lovely and helpful ladies. They have helped Aleera become much more sociable and she now always tells me about the fun activities she has gotten up to during her stay!"
"Goodstart Toowoomba Spring Street is a wonderful and very welcoming place. My family has been with the centre for 5 years now and we have found the educators to be amazing to
deal with it and always accommodating to my every need. There are so many fun creative things for the children to participate in. I know when I pick up my girls the first thing out of their mouth is "we had a great day"."
"My grandson Mason has been attending the Ashmole Road centre at Redcliffe with Corinne and the girls for about 12 months. I'm a firm believer in giving credit where credit is
due and I just wanted to say how happy I am that my grandson attends this centre.My daughter attended the same centre 18 years ago when it was called possum patch and went for some time. Miss Selvey was her teacher and is now Mason's. I have a lot to do with the girls as my daughter works full time so I drop him off and pick him up. Everyone there is wonderful, nothing is ever a problem or too hard. The girls are always willing to help and the love and caring they show to all the children is great.I would never consider taking him out because I know he is safe and well looked after and Mason loves going there. There is always so much to do for the kids and Mason is learning so much.So a big thank you to Corinne and all her team for being so lovely and caring. I'm so happy Mason attends this daycare."
"Our daughter, Arabella has been with Goodstart from the beginning, starting in the Nursery, then the Toddler Room and now in the Preschool Room. She really enjoys
herself at Goodstart and looks forward to her visits.Both my husband and I work, so it is wonderful to know our child is happy and being well cared for. The range of different activities they provide keeps Arabella learning and engaged. Educators are very friendly and wonderful with the kids. They always let you know what kind of a day your child has had, both verbally and also through the photo communication day book. The Centre Director, Mel, is amazingly hands-on and involved with all the children and spends quality time working in each room. Mel has always been very accommodating and efficient with anything that we have needed. We would like to thank Goodstart Albury Banff Avenue for being a positive influence on Arabella’s early learning and making it memorable and really enjoyable."
"We have had both of our children at Goodstart Estella, starting out in the Baby Rooms and continuing their way through to the Pre-School Rooms. The dedicated team at
Goodstart have created and continually developed an amazing learning environment for each developmental stage of a baby/toddler/child’s life. Goodstart Estella’s ongoing efforts to make improvements in and around the centre are the reason I highly recommend them to others."
"Goodstart Estella has provided an amazing service to my family over the past 3 and a half years. The girls at the centre have always been incredibly supportive and
accommodating. We have always been impressed with how willing they are to adapt their teaching styles to best suit the needs of each individual child, including our son, who had a speech delay, and our daughter, who is very assertive. The girls are like extended family and are just as passionate about our children's achievements as we are as their parents. A big thank you to Megan, Ange and Maree. I'd be lost without you."
"Our daughter has been attending Goodstart for the past 18 months and she loves everyday. It gives us great confidence knowing there is a great team supporting her learning
programs which are linked to the EYLF. Recent upgrades in a number of technical and administration aspects have improved how we interact with the staff, along with accessing digital statements, digital sign in/out and daily learning stories. Continued physical upgrades will be a great addition to the centre and I know the planned spaces will benefit their daily experiences. "
"“I cannot recommend Goodstart Eaton enough! My son has been coming to the centre for almost a year & from day one he's always been welcomed with open arms! The love & care
within the centre is unbelievable, he loves being there & I know he is well looked after, as well as learning so much!! Cannot fault anything about the girls or the centre!”"
"“My kids LOVE going to Goodstart Early Learning in Eaton. From the moment we walk in the door in the morning, the kids are welcomed with open arms by all staff and leave me
feeling comforted when I leave. The service and care is excellent and faultless. In case of an incident (which with my son, there's s few), this is handled exceptionally and appropriately. The kids love the girls, their friends and the atmosphere that is Daycare. Well done ladies, you do a wonderful job. Thankyou for loving and caring for our kids so well.”"
"“We have been part of the Goodstart Eaton family for nearly two years, and cannot recommend this centre highly enough! The best part about the centre is definitely the staff
. The carers are warm, friendly and have an obvious passion for early childhood education. Each child is cared for as an individual, with their own specific routine, interests, likes and dislikes being considered. The centre director and admin staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, any questions or concerns are responded to promptly. Returning to work has been made so much easier, knowing that our children are being cared for by such an amazing group of people.
Thanks so much!”
"My son has been attending Goodstart Algester for the past 2 years and he loves every minute of it! The staff are caring and professional and his individual learning journal
keeps me up to date with the activities he does at the centre including great photos of him in action and samples of his work for us to keep. He is now in the Preschool Room and I am confident he is going to be ready for Prep next year with the great program and qualified staff at the centre."
"Both of my children love their time at Goodstart Algester. Being a working mum, it's great to have an out of school hours program for my school-aged daughter at the same
centre as my son's Kindy program to allow drop off and pick up at the same time and place. The staff are caring and professional and the individual learning journals allow me to keep up with all the great activities and learning experiences my children are involved in. My son is starting Prep next year and I know he will be well-prepared with the great Kindy program he is receiving from the qualified staff at the centre."
"We are so happy with Goodstart Algester!!! We cannot sing your praises enough to our friends and family. If we have friends in the area that are looking for a day care
centre we are quite vocal in recommending you! It’s a big responsibility looking after, nurturing and guiding young children and I think you all do a fantastic job and definitely living up to our expectations. Initially we were going to choose a day care centre a little closer to our home but after some negative interactions with that particular centre, we tried our luck at your centre. We are so glad we did! We do not have any concerns when we drop our children off at your centre as we know they are in good hands. ALL the staff are pleasant, friendly and genuinely interested in the well being of the children. For this we feel blessed and appreciate being a part of your fantastic centre. It feels like one big happy family! "
"I highly recommend Goodstart Takalvan St.
This centre has so much to offer. They have an app Storypark where they post daily updates of what the children have done and the
outcomes they have learnt throughout each day. They have an excellent before/after school and vacation care facility where the school age children learn and get assistance with homework and other tasks. Publicly the centre holds a great reputation for being a very clean and safe environment for the children with new and educational toys and activities.
Goodstart Takalvan Street has really made a positive difference in my children’s developments and I am pleased that I chose this centre and will recommended them to everyone I know.
