Additional Centre Information
Hello, my name is Jessica Vatsilas and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Payneham.
Working at Goodstart Payneham has been the most rewarding and successful journey! I have been part of the Payneham family for 17 years - 5 years as Centre Director. I believe that creating a nurturing, aesthetically pleasing and safe environment, filled with developmentally appropriate curriculums and programs, will shape the first 5 years of a child’s life.
I am a passionate and dedicated leader who will always mentor and support my team to be the best that they can be.
At Goodstart Payneham we thrive to build trusting reciprocal relationships with both children and their families through Key Educator Relationships, which helps develop their sense of belonging in a new learning environment. I believe that children have the right to learn, play and build skills at their own pace and follow their own interests through making their own decisions.
Maintaining positive interactions builds a foundation for children to be nurtured, having a sense of agency and building a sense of security.
At Goodstart Payneham we might not be shiny brand new, but we are REAL, we have Heart and Soul!
We look forward to meeting you and your family. Come in and say hi!
