The staff are the most amazing people I know. Rebecca, Madeleine, Keith, Lilian, Lilita and Tamara are fantastic! COVID made it so tough for the centre, and they managed very well.

Louise Anne Ramos image
Highly recommended. The staff are very caring and always communicate on updates about my child. My child is very happy with the center and I can see that his skills are developing.

Goodstart St Leonards is absolutely wonderful. We sent our two kids, 2 & 4 for the last year and had such a positive and lovely experience. Both kids thrived in their respective rooms and their teachers were some of the most compassionate and kind people I've ever met. We are American expats and loved the diversity of students, teachers and learning experiences. I can't say enough positive things about this school, the teachers and the administrators!

I'm an Early Childhood Teacher myself and have been very happy for our son to attend at GSEL St Leonards. He has loved the babies room and his teachers, who have planned thoughtful, meaningful and inquiry based experiences. He drops off easily to any of the teachers and staff, and then is hard to get out at the end of the day. A good sign! The director is wonderful, knowledgeable and supportive of families and staff. The staff appear to work cohesively to the benefit of the children. Great sense of community with the children at the centre.

I have been sending my daughter who is 3.5 years old for the past 5 months. When we started, my daughter used to speak, communicate very less. Now she speaks more, expresses her feelings, communicates much better, capable of taking care of herself-be it having her food or using the toilet. I am truly happy with the kind of training, support and patience shown by the staff at the Good Start. Every day they talk to me on what she did, on frequent basis they ask me about anything I would like to see her achieve this month. From an administrative end, I have received immense support from them as well. Especially, the centre director keeping everyone informed of all sorts of updates and giving multiple options of achieving the no of hours etc. Finally, the kids get a chance to have amazing and variety of food everyday from the centre chef. So I believe, the centre and the staff have been providing with an absolutely amazing service which any parent would look forward to. I hope they keep up their good work in the future tool

Both my boys have attended Goodstart St Leonards and I have seen some wonderful changes over our time. The Educators have been amazing for us, they care for my boys and work hard to teach them so many different things. I would highly recommend this centre to future families, we are really happy there!

When we were looking for a daycare centre, we focused on how much the staff care for the children. This one got it.

I have a 4 and 2 year old at this centre and we are so happy with this daycare. We have been at this centre for 3 years and the educators are excellent. The outdoor facilities are outstanding best I have ever seen in any daycare in Sydney in the st Leonards to city. My children love attending they are so happy there and have a fantastic bond with their educators. The preschool room teacher Kathleen is actually a qualified school teacher and has been in the centre for a long time and is outstanding. The second staff member in preschool is new and she is lovely new addition to the centre. I am so fortunate that the same educator Nidhi that took care of my little girl in baby room is now taking care of my son in toddlers . This continuation in primary care for my family has been great, all educators in both preschool and toddler room are really exceptionally outstanding at this present time. The centre has biggest baby room I have ever seen and this is really helpful and was very appealing to me in selecting that centre for my kids. The centre has lovely new director after having a temporary one after previous director was on maternity leave. The centre opens from 7:30 am which is very handy if one had an early appointment and they provide kids with breakfast before 8 am. As a parent I feel very supported cared for and respected and that my kids are loved and I feel very deep trust in the educators. The food provided is all cooked onsite and they get so much variety and healthy snacks. This centre gets a big thumbs up from me.
