About

Welcome to Goodstart Early Learning Caulfield!

With six purpose-built classrooms, Goodstart Caulfield caters to children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. In a home-like environment, the educators nurture children’s individual interests to help them develop their confidence as lifelong learners. 

The outdoor play space was designed to inspire the children’s inquisitive minds as they explore nature. The outdoor area can be easily accessed from each age-based learning space. It includes sensory gardens and pebbled creek beds. There’s a pergola for shade, teepees for imaginative play, a digging patch and two sandpits. The outdoor space also serves as the dining hub for the children.

Indoors, the learning spaces span over two levels. The nursery children have a separate sleep room to ensure they get adequate rest throughout the day. The rooms are resourced to meet the needs of the children as they progress through their early years. 

Centre extras: 

  • Daily yoga program
  • Veggie garden
  • Occasional cooking experiences to mark cultural events
  • Reptile Incursions
  • Community walks and Bush Kinder
  • Nature-based outdoor play space

Located on Glen Huntly Road, Goodstart Caulfield is only a short walk from nearby tram stops. At pick up and drop off times, parents can also enjoy a complimentary tea or coffee and connect with other parents in the family lounge. Want to know more about this state-of-the-art centre?

Staff mean well - but entirely incompetent. I never leave these kinds of negative reviews - or any reviews ever. But I feel quite strongly about this. I won't go into detail, including how they ruined my son's first birthday party, but for MONTHS my youngest son cried at almost every drop off right up until his last day. Started at a new daycare and we are at day 3 and my youngest son ran in & sat on educators knee and didn't even bother to say goodbye to me. The difference is the amount of care, love & attention that is given to your child.

Very caring, safe and loving environment, professional staff and highly competent management. The beautiful educators truly know and care for each and every child. Our son attended the nursery and toddler room at this center and was very happy here. The staff made a great effort to cater to his many food intolerances. We left this center 3 months ago due to moving house and our now 2.5 year old still talks about some of the educators who have left a long lasting impression. A special Thanks to his key educators Archana and Kiko. You are truly missed!

The staff at good start glen huntly are very responsible reliable and caring. My son loved going there and had made so many good friends and learnt so much life skills. The educators are passionate about what they do and you can tell they care about your little ones-every time I go to pick my son up, the educators on duty always brief me about what activities they had been doing during the day and some funny moments or highlights of the day. They noticed the little changes about your child and they praise them as encourage them as they go. Very happy about the management there too, always efficient in replying to my email and very flexible. Highly recommend!

Vian was 6 months old when we started sending him to GoodStart GlenHuntly and from that day forward we have fallen more in love with this childcare center every day! It has a very inviting and cheery atmosphere. During Vian's orientation When we were still unsure about sending him to childcare at 6 months, Centre Director Sri gave us a tour and that's when we met Mayumi, Kiko and Swetha in the nursery room who are so welcoming and nurturing and always wearing smiles.All the educators and staff are very dedicated and compassionate, down-to-earth, hardworking, understanding and loving. Every time we requested Sri for an extra day, she gave her 100% each time to accommodate the request. We love how Vian always brings home spectacular creations, taking part in new experiences, making new friends, going on walks, playing inside and outside, and being cared for in an incredibly one-of-a-kind loving atmosphere, while we both are at work.I highly recommend you checking out this treasured childcare center. -Dilip & Jeen

My son has loved goodstart glenhuntly since he started there in the babies room 2 years ago: he loves his friends and has developed great relationships with many of the educators and staff. I am very happy with the centre.

Great caring staff, my kids are always happy and as a parent we are always well informed of what their activities are or how they are doing the whole day.
