Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Clayton is a lovely, warm and welcoming child care centre located in a safe and quiet residential area, close to shops, local schools, and public transport. Clayton is a very multicultural suburb and many of our families also come from diverse cultural backgrounds. Our educators strive to provide the best care and fun educational activities for development of all children at our centre. Inside the centre, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.

My bub started day care from August 1 2022 So far so good Very happy and blessed to have Mandeep and Parminder as our first teachers in her education journey. Both teachers are passionate, experienced, happy, positive, responsible and respectful. They write down bub 's nappy, sleeping, meal and milk bottle on a little book for parents and on a table for other staff. They change nappy every 2 h. They are patient with parents and kids. So far, very satisfied.

This was our child's first childcare center before we moved house. He has been in a few centers since but Goodstart Clayton is definitely the best. He started when he was 9 months old and the transition was almost immediate thanks to the amazing educators, the caring atmosphere and the wonderful activities the kids gets engaged with all day. The staff and management are really cooperative and understanding and we always had a great interaction. The routine was fabulous and our child has stuck to it since. This review comes over a year after we moved out, but our experience here has been so fabulous that I really want to give a big Thank You to all the wonderful people here that made our son happy to walk into the place every morning with a smile

I'd give 6 stars if I could. Goodstart Clayton have the most dedicated, caring, thoughtful, and reliable staff who went out of their ways to take care of my little one (and all other children). The educators understand each child's individual needs very well and help make every transition a smooth experience (from sleeping being held to sleeping independently in the cot, from bottle to sippy cup, etc.). Highly recommend the centre!

the Goodstart Early Learning Clayton is an incredible dedicated team that is present and involved with all children. Mandeep, my daughter’s key educator is everything I could wish for her (She gives her support, love, dedication, and much more) but everyone is really like a family and amazing!!! (From the admin team to the educators!) They create an environment which is inclusive, creative, and full of different indoor and outdoor activities that allow your child to grow. I completely recommend this center.

My daughter has been attending this centre for last 2 years. They very reliable responsive and caring. When ever I had any concern they made sure that they always satisfy us as a parent. Now I have started to send my little one as well who is 6 months old. I would highly recommend this centre. Very happy with the service they provide. They are like a second family to us.

Been going to good start since start of the year for 4 year old kinder. All the staff are very attentive, polite and kind. They are very responsive to our needs and show sincerity in their approach to every child. From day one we were welcomed like family and like family/home is the atmosphere at good start. After looking around for a kinder, I am so very pleased to have chosen good start as our choice. The vibe is so positive , warm and invitingy. My daughter instantly made good friends with both the children and the staff and continues to show growth in her socialising skills and knowledge regarding the world around her. It is evident, that a lot of effort and time goes into education here.Look no further. This place is the best start for your little ones. Will also be enrolling my 9 month old here once study/work return.

As first time parents putting our child in care was a huge decision. we looked at a number of Centres attended orientations and could not go past good start (clayton only highly recommended). It’s simply a home away from home, the director ( cash) knows every child’s name and all the educators are warm and most importantly they know my baby ❤️ All educators are beyond amazing ???? kitchen staff are at great too .I feel very comfortable leaving my baby at good start and know she is receiving the best education and care possible.seriously i never thought kudrat was gonna live without me at all .special thanks to parminder mam and mandeep mam kudrat loves you both alot ♥️♥️I can be at work for longer hours without a wink of worry ❤️
