Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Drouin is located in a country town setting in West Gippsland, 90kms east of Melbourne. The centre is close to the main street and shops as well as a train station, bus stop and schools. Inside, 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; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.   Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre. Outside, we have age appropriate play spaces and equipment, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability. Our two yards have sandpits, swings, a mud pit, vege patch, worm farm, bark pits, bike track, dry creek bed and heaps of shade. We also have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods. A major focus for our centre is how working with the broader community can help us enrich the children’s learning experience.  We strive to work in partnership with families to build strong community members in an interactive learning environment.   Through visits to the centre as well as excursions and participation in community events, we are able to deepen the relationship between the centre and the community, while teaching the children about being a contributing and active member of society.   Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.

Additional Centre Information

Sarah Miles

Centre Director

Hello, my name is Sarah and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Drouin

I have been a part of the childcare industry since completing a Certificate III in children’s services. I enjoyed my studies and placement so much that I promptly decided to return to study and complete my diploma in children’s services in 2006. I have loved every minute of my career path since.

Over the past years I have had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of many families lives as I worked across all the varying ages that long day care provides.

The first five years of a child’s development are very important, and we have a responsibility to ensure each child is given the very best start to a path of lifelong learning.

Parents are a child’s first teachers and because of that, we work to build solid partnerships and ensure there are strong lines of communication giving parents peace of mind.

I am fortunate enough to be part of a very passionate, enthusiastic team who care and love their chosen careers as dedicated, professional and experienced educators to all children who come into our service.

We encourage children to develop at their own pace, with the support and resources needed to reach milestones and become confident independent learners. We offer the children the use of our indoor and outdoor environments to achieve these goals as they form friendships and bonds that can go on to last a lifetime.

We here at Goodstart Early Learning Drouin have a team of educators who have a strong passion and drive for supporting your child on their learning journey. We are committed to providing a safe, supportive environment rich with play-based learning opportunities to help your child develop.

Together children at our service explore opportunities that enhance, develop and create confident capable learners.

I look forward to being a part of your journeys as we share the special moments that are directed by your child’s own path of discovery.
