Company description:
Goodstart, as a not-for-profit social enterprise, has for 10 years been creating positive social change by giving Australia’s children, especially our most vulnerable, the best possible start in life — access to high quality early learning.

Goodstart was created a decade ago by a partnership of four of Australia’s leading charities who recognised a child’s early years experiences as having a huge influence on the rest of their lives — The Benevolent Society, The Brotherhood of St Laurence, Mission Australia and Social Ventures Australia.

Today, Goodstart is Australia’s largest provider of early learning and care and Australia’s largest non-government provider of preschool and kindergarten programs. We employ 14,900 people, including 1,500+ teachers, and provide high quality early learning to more than 70,700 children from 59,200 families across 671 early learning centres. Around one third of our centres are in rural and regional areas and around one quarter are in low socio-economic areas.
