Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Wavell Heights is a purpose built centre that caters for children aged six weeks to five years of age. We have five rooms which offer educational play based programs that run off the children's interest. We have 12 educators across our service, including an Early Childhood Teacher who runs our Kindergarten program. Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre. Outside, we have three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. We have sandpits, manmade and natural play surfaces, undercover areas, a play bridge, vege patch, digging pit and lots of natural shade.

Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
