Goodstart Early Learning Little Mountain is set on an acre of land surrounded by tropical bushland only minutes away from local shops, schools and transport. The back yard boasts real grass and trees to climb, a bike track, large sandpit, mud kitchen, swings, slides and vegetable gardens. The centre has four large air conditioned rooms catering for babies through to kindergarten aged children.   The staff at Little Mountain are fully qualified with two University trained Early Childhood Teachers, and all other educators holding either an Advanced Diploma, Diploma or Certificate III, in Children’s and Community Services. At Keneland Drive, we base our philosophy on the Early Years Learning Framework’s fundamental vision of Belonging, Being and Becoming. We strive to have a welcoming feeling for our families with spaces that are inviting and engaging. We incorporate natural materials and furnishings to create a calm space for the children to be creative and imaginative. “I like digging with the big shovels and in that sandpit. That makes me happy” – child’s feedback. Reducing visual noise in our surroundings provides an uninterrupted environment for the children to just BE in the moment. We believe in allowing children to have individual play to build confidence and independence, as well as for social interactions to develop positive relationships with peers and trusted educators, all the while learning and challenging themselves to become capable lifelong learners. “When I come to Kindy I like to feel good. I like playing in the shop and playing with my friends”- child’s feedback We recognise the UN convention on the ‘Rights of the Child’, that all children have the right to be educated through play and be active participants in their own learning. We encourage and support children to BECOME confident in using their voice to express ideas, thoughts and views on daily life and educators use this knowledge and understanding of how each child learns to create active learning goals for them to achieve. We believe children are central to everything we do embracing Key Educator Relationships to enhance our connections with the children, our families and the community.  Providing a sense of BELONGING by creating trusting, nurturing and lasting bonds. “We all are grateful for the time, effort, love and patience you all put into your work” – family feedback We support Uri Bronfenbrenner’s socio-ecological theory of early childhood development, building their sense of identity and wellbeing through social and ecological interactions. This is reflected in our community connections with excursions to our local schools, library, farms and parklands, and incursions from occupational therapists, dental services and physically active programs, such as tennis, soccer and dancing. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our Little Mountain family.

Additional Centre Information

Simone Werner

Centre Director

Hi, My name is Simone and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Little Mountain Keneland Drive.

My career in the Early Learning and Child Care sector started when I was 17 and just fresh out of High School in 1996. During my journey in Child Care I had the privilege of working as an Assistant Educator and throughout the years progressing to roles such as Lead Educator, Assistant Director and Director. I have worked with all age groups during my 22 years ranging from 6 weeks to 12yrs.  I have a Diploma in Children’s Services and a Certificate 4 in Training and Assessing.

I strongly believe in offering your loved ones a safe and nurturing environment to grow and develop self-interdependence. My promise to you is that you will always feel your loved ones are being cared for by the best possible educators who will create close bonds making your child’s early learning experience more comforting. Our aim is to ensure your child feels at home and part of our Goodstart family.

I am extremely passionate about making collaborative partnerships within our wider community as I believe this is an essential part of our children learning self-awareness and confidence. I aim to provide a safe, nurturing, loving and quality care environment to our community.

Assisting your child to develop an understanding of the world and their place in it is such an important part of why I love child care and being able to watch your children grow and develop makes my role as an Educator so rewarding and fulfilling.

I am extremely approachable and have an open-door policy. Please do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting each and every one of our amazing families.
