About Goodstart Bedford Park
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Bedford Park is located in the southern suburbs of Adelaide, close to local schools, shops and public transport. We are lucky to have wetlands not far from the centre and it isn't uncommon for ducks to come and pay us a visit. We also get the odd kookaburra come and sing us a song.
Carers at the centre pride themselves on creating a fun, exciting and developmentally rewarding learning environment for all children in their care.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, stimulating surrounds ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop through sensory, play-based learning.
Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with parents and families, ensuring open and clear communication. This also means we can tailor each program to the child’s individual needs, interests and strengths – as well as the strong level of cultural diversity in our centre.
Outside, we have three areas all with age appropriate play spaces and equipment. With large shaded yards, the children have the chance to play on climbing frames and have fun with our sandpits, vege patches, and playing equipment as well as enjoying being close to the wetlands.
All meals are prepared on site by our qualified cook who uses tasty, fresh and nutritional ingredients – just the thing to keep hungry tummies satisfied.
Community is also important to us and through visits to the centre and participation in events and activities throughout the year we are able to enrich the learning experience. Art and music experiences are provided on a daily basis which allow the children to freely express their creativity.
We provide a variety of special events throughout the year such as Grandparent's Day, Pyjama Party Day, Teddy Bears Picnic, Australia Day, and Children's Christmas Party, just to name a few. We believe by having these special events we help to build strong relationships with all families within the centre. We also pride ourselves in our charity fund raising events such as Pink Ribbon Day.
Come in and see for yourself how we can help give your child the best start in life – and give you peace of mind! We would love the chance to show you around.
