Additional Centre Information
Hi, my name is Tao Smith and I’m the Centre Director here at Goodstart Ivanhoe.
I hold a diploma of Early Childhood Education and have 15 years’ experience in the early learning profession. During this time, I have worked as an Educator, Lead Educator and Assistant Director. I am passionate about connecting with children and families and building strong relationships.
At Goodstart Ivanhoe, we aim to provide the best possible quality education and care for your child and a wonderful family experience. This is achieved through positive interactions with our highly qualified educators, educational programs and learning environments that scaffold children’s learning and development.
My Early Learning values:
I strongly believe that your child’s first experiences in early childhood education should be positive as it establishes their attitude for learning for their whole life. I also think partnerships with families are vital to a child’s best outcomes and confidence in their learning journey.
What I love about our community:
The people! I love to get to know families and connect with others in the community.
A little more about me:
When I’m not in the centre, you’ll find me spending time with my two children and husband, exploring Melbourne together.
Why your child should spend the day with me (and the amazing team at Goodstart Ivanhoe):
At Goodstart Ivanhoe we strive to provide a safe, peaceful, and natural environment that engages children's five senses, provoking wonder, curiosity, and intellectual engagement.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our centre.
