Questions answered

What is a session window?

Goodstart is now offering more flexible sessions of child care. Choose between a 9 hour, 10 hour or all day session. Your session window is the set start time and end time for a session at your centre.

What is a grace period?

We understand your schedule can sometimes get complicated by unplanned delays, so we're offering a grace period either side of your daily session times. If you opt for the all-day session, this runs for the duration of your centre's opening hours so no grace period applies.

Session Offers available to all families

Choose from 9 hour, 10 hour or our all day sessions and only pay for the session you need.
