But finding the best option for your child takes time and research.
While we could talk about it all day, we’ve broken down the key features you can expect from Goodstart’s Kindergarten Program—to hopefully make your life just a little bit easier!
Goodstart’s Kindergarten Program helps children build and extend their language, literacy and numeracy skills, learn to be creative, and build their independence, so they can enter ‘big school’ with confidence.
Our program is based on well-researched learning experiences and complements the national Early Years Learning Framework. We encourage children to learn through a combination of child-directed learning, small group educator-guided sessions and brief large-group sessions. It’s delivered in a fun, active and nurturing environment where the child’s experience is paramount.
Whilst the Kindergarten Program is typically run between 9am and 3pm, our centres offer long-day hours to give you greater flexibility and wrap-around care to suit your family’s needs.
The Goodstart Kindergarten Program is led by qualified teachers who are passionate about the learning outcomes for all children in our centres. They provide each child with a personalised approach to learning based on their specific needs and interests.
Stimulating learning environments
Our centres provide a variety of learning spaces, both indoors and outdoors, to encourage children’s creativity and exploration – including specific learning zones, quiet and active spaces, and wet and dry areas. Children are encouraged to use construction, art and design experiences to express their ideas and creative thinking in two and three dimensions.
