Goodstart Nightcliff


Our vision is for our service to come together and be a part of fostering reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community. We are committed to gaining a better acknowledgement and understanding of the cultures and histories of Australia’s First Peoples, and to encourage not only our service, but our children, our families and our team to engage with the wider community. 

We aim to deeply embed practices and strategies that fully value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and respectfully reflect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives into our everyday curriculum and let these guide our wider practices, which will establish our service as a culturally safe environment for children, families, educators, staff and visitors. 

Through trust, acceptance, shared ideas and collaboration we have built strong, genuine and lasting relationships, which allows our team to embrace the diversity and individuality of all who walk through our doors.

We acknowledge the Country of the Larrakia people on which our service is located and believe that with our ongoing journey, we will better improve and build strong relationships with the community, and through these relationships we will build more respect and inclusive connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
