Goodstart early learning at Cheltenham has been great since my daughter started going at about 9 months old, now 2 years old.She has developed so much as a person , speaking well , sharing with other children. The educators have been amazing through my daughters toilet training. I have always received great communication at pick ups.

My son went here and my baby girl started here when she was one and half years and now she is 4 and half She always ready to go. She loves all educators. If someone is on leave then she always let me know about her. She is learning many things like drawing painting n alphabets. I always prefer to everyone Goodstart is the best I know. Highly recommend.

My daughter has only been attending Goodstart Cheltenham for 7 weeks but the fact that she has settled in so quickly speaks volumes. The centre is modern and clean, I’m updated regularly and the children are served amazing food but all of that is just a bonus as the staff and educators are truely what make this centre so great. They really do have the children's best interest at heart, they take the time to get to know each individual child and I couldn’t be happier with my choice to send my daughter to this centre.

Fantastic place. There have been a lot of changes in the centre since my son began, however the friendly staff have made sure the transitions were as smooth as possible and my kiddo had no issues adjusting. He runs to the door with excitement. Cathy is our key educator and we feel very lucky to have her. Leaving your kids in someone else hands can be daunting but her easygoing attitude and friendly nature makes it so much easier. Thanks to all the staff for your hard work, particularly during these troublesome times

Goodstart had has some difficult times in the recent past, but I'm glad to say the new director, along with help from the friendly staff, has turned the place around and it is now somewhere I am once again very pleased to send my son. Good facilities, friendly and helpful staff, and usually a good number of updates via app so we can see what's been happening each day. My son always comes home happy. We will be sending out second boy there as well when the time comes.

I was feeling a little anxious at the end of last year with so many familiar friendly staff members leaving the centre. My son Kobe started back this year fresh to the toddler room. He loves it ❤ The staff have been amazing & super helpful to him (& me) in this transition. Their communication has been excellent with me & there is nothing better than having your little boy excited to walk himself into his room in the morning!

My daughter absolutely loves attending Goodstart. The educators take such great care of her, and she has learnt so much during her time there. They are great at communicating what the children have been up to each day. Would highly recommend this centre to anyone in the area :)

I moved my son from another Goodstart to Port Road for many reasons. However they have exceeded all the expectations I was hopeing we would have. They are great responding to any issue & fix /assist what your child needs. All staff I have been in contact with are friendly & welcoming, 100% have your child's interests at heart. Make them feel welcome which is exactly what you need at drop off. They post pictures & a write up everyday to let you know what your child has been up too. Each month a lovely progression report to advise how their education is progressing & what they will be working on. They have lots of outside play & get to experience lots of different activities. Best decision I ever made. My son is so happy to go to Port Road, we pull up in the car park & he throws his arms up in the air & says "yay"
