Great Professional development opportunities
Great professional development opportunities to up skill your knowledge and professional practice. However, keep in mind this is a large company and too often it isn't about quality it is about the money. Yes it is non-profit but everyone still needs to get paid and budgets need to be available for a variety of things, so it always comes down to money. This means filling rooms (especially preschool because that room makes all the money with the higher ratios) to capacity as much as possible each day. Also not having enough budget hours to get all of the job requirements done each day. The excessive amount of paperwork that overflows (unpaid) into personal life is massive. Upper management don't address feedback from staff. You just get ignored. Glad I got the experience there that I did, but also glad I left and I havent looked back.
ProsProfessional development
ConsPaperwork, long days, pressure to 'do better', lack of support from upper management.

Office Manager | Brisbane QLD | 20 Jan 2014
Goodstart is the new kid on the block but has great potential with the right people in place. Great opportunities
A typical day was around 10 hours and operated at a hectic pace, really good. When one looks after 250 childcare centres the day is a full on one by all means. Learnt how to be a successful Facilities Manager dealing with Govt bodies, top management, childcare convenors, contractors and parents of the children. Co workers overall were great and very dedicated as they need to be when dealing with children and the parents. No specific part of the job was "the hardest", everything connected with the Facilities, Office Management and Fleet Manager roles had there own difficulties but that was great - it added value to the role. The most enjoyable part of the three roles I was responsible for was to see results being achieved and staff and parents going away happy with the end results.
ProsFlexibilty to run your own show and come up with the right end results
ConsI was on call 24/7 which at times impacted on family life

Early Childhood Teacher | Mont Albert VIC | 21 Apr 2015
Hard work emotionally and physically
involvement with the community Parents and staff are respected for what they can contribute to the environment.Staff meetings are regular and provide opportunity for staff learning to keep up with changes with in the childcare sector Extremely busy at times but the staff ratios are considered at all times Staff can be continually absent due to illness of themselves or their children. management centre directors are lacking in the fundamental basics required to manage a team of people and often misunderstandings are never addressed in a professional manner and often never resolved . Which leaves the unresolved issues to go underground creating a tense and unhappy environment
Prosnon
Conshard work with no recognition for all that the educator contributes daily

GoodStart Early Learning is a good quality daycare centre
As I was a trainee at GoodStart Early Learning Labrador for more than one year. I was working with all experience staffs. All staffs engage children by using play-based learning that encourages the development of outcomes within the Early Years Learning Framework.

It was good and enjoyable.
I am able to work as soon as possible that fits my skills and I love doing all my duties especially at work and I value the people around me. My most enjoyable job is taking care the children start from 6 months old up to 5 years old, that was during my workplacement in a childcare center. Also as a room attendant I love working with different people and taking care the people around our work and maintaining there health during there stay in a hotel.

It all depends on the Centre Director
the best part is being with the children, watch them respond to me, all happy to learn with me, I dont mind which shift I work, but do like the early morning one to welcome the children, who were happy to see me and therefore mostly do not mind saying goodbye to their parents. Everyday I saw something in the child that was not there yesterday, progress wise. its exciting and interesting to watch development and milestones being achieved.
Prosnone, really
Consthe usual women cliques.
