From our centre directors to teachers and centre teams, we work together to make a real difference for children in those crucial early years.
Safety, health and wellbeing are more than just words to us, they are a personal commitment and a promise we make to our children, our families and each other every day.
We’re Goodstart – a not-for-profit with a vision for Australia’s children to have the best possible start in life.

You will build meaningful relationships with families, so each child has a strong sense of belonging that supports them to thrive.

About our Centre: Goodstart Gladstone, Toolooa Street is a 108 Place Service Service and we are proud to be an "exceeding" NQS Centre. We have a team of dedicated, qualified and passionate educators who provide a safe, friendly and stimulating learning environment for our children and their families. We are lucky to be located close to local shops, have a private staff room, and a cleaner who assists us with all the cleaning duties. Outside, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces - with sandpits, vege patches, garden beds and lots of shade and space across our three outdoor play spaces. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability - while giving children the scope to explore and play.
