About Goodstart Campbelltown
Goodstart Early Learning Campbelltown is tucked away in a convenient but quiet pocket of Campbelltown, only 20 minutes from the heart of Adelaide. We are close to schools, shops and community amenities and are easily accessible via public transport.
Our centre caters for children from six weeks of age to school age children across our Nursery, Toddler and Kindergarten rooms which are spacious, stimulating and reflect our curriculum.
At Goodstart Campbelltown we also provide a Government-approved kindergarten program with the convenience of long day care hours. Our kindergarten teachers are University qualified and provide a play-based learning program that will support your child in learning the skills for school and life.
Our service also provides a Vacation Care program during school holiday periods.
Children are central to everything we do
We pride ourselves in establishing and maintaining professional, trusting relationships, where children feel confident in their environment, enabling them to feel safe, connected and get the best possible learning outcomes. We enhance children’s relationships and wellbeing using core techniques such as welcome spaces, our key educator approach and play stations.
Our centre is proud to have been awarded national and state awards for our work in ‘Relationships with Children’ as well as awards for our early learning practice and sustainability programs.
We are accredited as ‘exceeding’ service and our programs are developed in line with the Early Years Learning Framework. We tap into the knowledge and understanding of our children’s parents and families, ensuring each child’s interests and needs are fully provided for.
We have large outdoor areas as well as two unique indoor/outdoor zones where children can continue playing in the fresh air, regardless of the weather. Our play spaces focus on natural, sensory-based experiences with greenhouses, vegetable patches and mud kitchens.
Families are our primary partner
We dedicate ourselves to working closely with each individual family, ensuring your child receives the highest quality care and learning outcomes during their time at Goodstart Campbelltown. We invest in regular family communications through daily conversations, emails and via our online learning system ‘StoryPark’, where you can view photos and updates from your child’s day. We encourage families to participate in our range of free play groups and information sessions and to play an active role in our centre’s community. We value the feedback, ideas and input our family make and invite you to join our family connection and community connection programs.
Being a valued part of each unique community
We pride ourselves in our work with the community through our strong relationships with local businesses and support services. We have a community pantry, library and clothes swap both inside the centre and outside the centre to support our local community. We have a fruit tree ‘community orchard’ with all the fruit openly shared and available for the community to take. Our connections and partnerships include the local Campbelltown Council group ‘LAVA’, community Facebook group ‘Love Campbelltown’ and the Athelstone Men’s Shed.
We invite you to book a tour and take a look around, meet the team and explore how we can support your early learning journey. We look forward to welcoming you and your family! (If the tour times available don’t suit you or your family’s commitments please contact us to organise a different time).

Mardi Miles Centre Director
Hi, my name is Mardi and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Campbelltown.
I have worked in the early learning sector for more than 25 years in a variety of roles. Prior to joining Goodstart in 2015 I worked as an Inclusion Support Facilitator.
The first five years is such an important time for children, there is so much learning acquired during this time and it is our role as educators to work in partnership with parents to provide every child with rich play-based learning opportunities to explore, practice new skills and become confident learners.
I have a strong belief in the importance and value of high quality early learning, and together with our dedicated team of professional, experienced educators and teachers we strive to provide this at Goodstart Campbelltown for our children and families.
We would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your child and discuss how we can work with you to give your child the highest quality in learning.
Call us on 8336 9570, or click the 'Book a tour' button above to arrange a personalised tour. If you’d like a tour outside of the offered tour times please contact me so that we can organise this for you.
