Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Anna Bay is situated just outside of Anna Bay, surrounded by the tranquillity of the Australian bush. We are close to schools, shops and tucked into a quiet residential area.
We believe in building strong meaningful relationships, so we can create supportive, rich nurturing play environments that lead to lifelong learning. To do this we build Key Educator relationships. Children are offered a Key Educator, who will build secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships, recognising children as active participants in their own learning. It is our belief that before a child can learn they must feel comfortable in a safe and healthy environment.
Inside, all of the rooms - Nursery to Preschool – a setup, in line with the Early Years Learning Framework has been created. Our rooms invite sensory and play based learning opportunities. Natural, stimulating surrounds and resources ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through open ended, play-based learning.
