Meet your team
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Somerville is located in the Goldfields, close to local schools, shops and community facilities. We are the only Goodstart centre in the region and as such we pride ourselves on the quality of childcare and early learning we provide. Our programs give children a strong sense of identity and well-being, meaning they are well placed to become confident and involved learners.
We acknowledge that children learn in a variety of ways and vary in their capabilities and pace of learning. We encourage children to have fun in a safe, secure and well supervised environment. We make sure that we build strong friendships with families and include them in all our special events.
Our centre was assessed by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) and we received an overall rating of ‘Exceeding’. This process is a National Framework, which rates all Childcare Centres across Australia against the National Quality Standards.
If you have a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education or ACECQA approved equivalent qualification, and experience in a similar role, then we want to meet you!
Goodstart is committed to child safety, with a zero tolerance of child abuse, and expect all our employees to reflect this commitment. Should you strive to uphold and reflect these values then we would love to hear from you!
