About Our Centre
Goodstart Ashmont is one of our amazing EChO centres that offer enhanced services over and above the universal base of education and care. We invest in proportionately disadvantaged communities using our unique EChO model to enhance learning, development and wellbeing outcomes for children experiencing vulnerability, along with supporting their families and building their communities. Services include additional teachers, child and family practitioners, speech pathologists, occupational therapists and social inclusion coordinators.
Services in each EChO centre differ because each centre aims to meet the individual and unique needs of the community, from providing nutritional support, to multidisciplinary and outreach services.
Working inclusively ensures children belong. When children belong, they thrive.
