Welcome to Goodstart Early Learning Deer Park

Goodstart Deer Park has been a part of the local Deer Park community since 1999. The friendly and inclusive centre welcomes children up to 6 years, with quality care and exciting education programs for school readiness. The large multicultural team of educators and teachers proudly ensure every child feels welcome and valued.

The centre’s rooms are light and colourful, with cushions and teepees, cosy spaces for play and a wide mix of toys, books and art materials. With many educators speaking second languages, children have wonderful opportunities to learn about new cultures. The team also goes out of their way to ensure new migrant families feel welcome and supported.

The outside space features a fun cubby house and a range of age-appropriate play equipment. Following the philosophy of play-based learning, children are free to explore, climb and discover the fun outdoors, building vital motor, cognitive and social skills in their adventures.

Located on the corner of Ballarat and Station roads, the centre is within easy reach of shops, schools and public transport. Why not book a tour of this inclusive and family-orientated centre today?
