Portfolio Entry 3

‘Goodstart Early Learning’ ‘Life, Love, Learning ‘                                                                        

The first thing I noticed about this particular website was the choice of the main page colors and the inclusion of nature on the forefront. I had not looked at where the centre was based, however, when I saw the word ‘nappies’, I was like ‘hey, where am I’.  Lo, Behold! This is an Aussie based daycare centre!

The choice of colors by the website comprise of both primary and secondary, maintaining an intricate subdued balance. The overall look is both informative and simple.  The other thing I noticed was that the main page was not filled with literature, but rather plain language  filled with key details  which encouraged me to read what ‘good start early learning’, wanted to say.

The website highlights on the ‘Best Practise’. This is a term and tool  that helps elevate the standard of any given daycare which includes having a high value for the  employees’ professional development, meeting the requirements of the Ministry and working towards help and providing services to the most important partner, the parents who are looking for a safe haven for their loved ones during their absence. The website clearly defines its philosophy and purpose

We’re for children, not for profit

Children are born ready to learn

Children who start ahead stay ahead

The website uses both horizontal and vertical navigation bars. The horizontal bar also has the drop down feature which can provide a lot of information without losing sight of what else there is that the entire website is showcasing.  It also has a search bar next to the log in window. The images of children (of different backgrounds) shows a general acceptance of all. Also, contact no. and options for feedback are available for the searcher.

Over all, a wonderful website, simple and informative, if I was looking for a daycare for my child and had come across this website, I would feel confident about finding out from the comfort of my home a lot of key information.
