Good Start Early Learning
At Goodstart, children are central to everything we do.
In 2009, a consortium of leading community sector organisations – The Benevolent Society, Mission Australia, the Brotherhood of St Laurence and Social Ventures Australia – came together to initiate the formation of Goodstart.
Goodstart was founded on a vision of giving children the best possible start in life through access to quality early learning.
As a social enterprise, Goodstart is a not-for-profit organisation that operates with strong business disciplines. We reinvest operating surpluses in our network, our people and our purpose – for the benefit of every child and their early learning.
Our vision is for Australia’s children to have the best possible start in life.
Our purpose is to ensure children have the learning, development and wellbeing outcomes they need for school and life.
