Goodstart Early Learning Lane Cove
We offer a child led, play-based approach to learning. Children are central to everything we do and we believe families are our primary partners. We also value our connection to the local community by regularly taking the children on community walks, engaging with the local primary schools, and involving the children in programs offered at Lane Cove Library.
We offer added programs such as music and dance, cooking and sports skills development. Children are provided a relaxed environment where they are afforded ample time to play, learn, eat and rest. They are also responsible for their environment by tending to our vegetable gardens, watering the plants and looking after their own spaces.
Our menu is wholesome, fresh and varied. We can cater for all dietary requirements whether they be cultural, preferential, or medically prescribed. We acknowledge that children’s routines can vary from family to family and we support the consistency between home and the centre.
Our Preschool children engage in an intensive Transition to School program in the term before school which involves excursions, intentional teaching, and exposure to the changes they will experience such as lunchboxes, and interactions with previous children from our centre who have started school.
We also involve our families in events such as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day breakfast’s, a Halloween Disco, Christmas Party and Graduation, and arrange family support talks on topics such as sleep coaching, occupational therapy and children’s wellbeing.
At Goodstart we want children to have the best start for school and for life. We also want kids to be kids!
