The organisations behind GoodStart are some of Australia’s leading and most respected not-for-profit organisations including Mission Australia, The Benevolent Society, the Brotherhood of St Laurence and Social Ventures Australia whose main objective over the past year has been to provide children with continued development and learning opportunities through the operation of centres.

To celebrate the occasion, children enjoyed a day of festivities including face painting, party hat making and a host of fun activities.
