At Headstart Griffith we pride ourselves on providing a caring, homely environment. Our rooms are filled with a mix of old and new provisions to fascinate the children and encourage exploration.

Our families always come first and we encourage and appreciate any suggestions you may have in regards to our centre and educators. We love for families to join us at our centre and to participate in their child’s program and play situations, perhaps to share a special talent or cook a family’s favourite meal.

Griffith is a place of diverse cultures and each room celebrates the cultures of their children and cultures from around the world. Our parents enjoy sharing their knowledge and traditions and assist our teachers in planning events and activities for the children to explore.

We look forward to caring for your children and building an informative and happy relationship with your family.

Elly Williams

Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care

Headstart Early Learning Centre Griffith Centre ManagerI have been working in the early childhood education sector since 2012, and I’m currently studying towards a bachelor’s in teaching birth – 12 years. It is my passion to build relationships and assist children with their learning and developmental needs through their early years. From children, families and educators, it’s exciting to be part of such a diverse community that all of us can be proud of! I chose the centre manager position as I believe I have the passion to mentor and guide the centre educators to provide the best quality care for children.

What makes our childcare centre special here at Headstart Griffith is the extensive range of excursions and incursions offered to children. Our excursions include visiting parks in the area, bouldering, rhyme time at the local library and more. When the weather is warmer, we go on adventures to the park to explore and discover new things. We also plan various excursions based on children’s interests and community events such as the recycling centre (child interest), NAIDOC week celebrations, art gallery workshops and theatre shows.

We also provide an Outside of School Hours program where we run excursions in the school holidays, which are more leisure-based. These include bowling and cinema visits, indoor play centres and laser tag, skate parks and bush walks.

Our centre has an amazing diversity enriched culture embedded and evident in our programs and our centre’s philosophy. Our centre has many bilingual team members and can use this to our advantage when providing tours for families where English is not their first language and holding many cultural events within the service. 

In my downtime, you can find me spending time with my pets, two dogs and a cat. They do keep me on my toes. I enjoy fitness and spending time with my family and friends with an overall love for cooking anything challenging and delicious.

Testimonials

Reviews and Testimonials

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“My 2 year old daughter started in the Explorers room around 2 months ago for 2 days a week. She looks forward to her days there and absolutely loves going. She is coming home with so many stories of singing, painting, her friends, her carers (which she adores!!) and the really fun water play. I have no hesitation of dropping her off of a morning and leaving her there all day if I need to. The centre has really nutritious meals for the children and the carers use Kindyhub, where we get photo updates daily.”
