Goodstart Early Learning - Childcare Centre Gawler South

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Gawler South was opened in 2006. With a rural aspect but still all the conveniences that come with a good, central location, the centre is located next to the railway station making the daily commute, drop-off and pick-up a whole lot easier!
Our five rooms – Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool – are all appointed to make the most of a highest-quality, play and experience based early education. We don’t do cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all learning. Instead, we offer a variety of programs, and focus on individualised play-based learning as outlined in the Early Years Learning Framework.
Our outdoor areas – and the sheer size of the space we have for the children – are a wonderful asset to our centre. We have sandpits and paths and lots of tactile, sensory-based environments for the children to explore. Add to that our two chickens and well-stocked vege gardens – and we have a solid base from which to teach about sustainability and the environment.

We invite local organisations such as dentists, police and the fire brigade to visit the children. We also encourage grandparents, relatives and parents to be involved in the centre's activities throughout the year.
One of our staff members is Italian, giving the children a hands-on experience understanding multiculturalism within our society. The children learn Italian at meal times, which they really enjoy.

We understand the importance of communication with our families, and in addition to one-on-one verbal communication we also offer centre newsletters, emails, program journals, child portfolios, and displays of the children’s work throughout the centre.

Come on in and say hello. Let us show you around and discuss how we can help you give your child the best possible start in life.

Centre Director

Unique little bodies, with creative big minds!
Hi there. I’m Janine and as Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Gawler South, this is a value the team and I strongly believe to be true.

I have worked in the in the early learning industry for about 20 years, starting my career with this company in 1995. I have a Diploma of Children’s Services, and I have been the Centre Director here since 2007. My time in the industry has given me the chance to work across all early learning age groups and it has led me to develop a philosophy where we aim to be an early learning environment that values and respects all children, families and educators.

It’s where there is a clear line of communication and a solid relationship that a child is given the best opportunity to grow and develop as a lifelong learner.

I believe the first five years are the most important in any child’s development, and I have great pleasure in helping today's young children to develop the skills to become the strong, independent leaders of our future. She encourages the families at her centre to have a voice, share their ideas and join in the learning with their child.

Come in and be heard. I’d love to meet you and your child and explore how we can give your child a great start in learning.

Goodstart Gawler South is like a holiday for our daughter Abby, she looks forward to her day at the centre as if she was going to her Nanna's for chicken nuggets and chocolate (that’s a big deal). They instill so much effort and pride into teaching her so many important things. Abby is a very happy and proud child when she comes home from her day. We are happy parents and wouldn’t want any other centre to provide care to our daughter. Thank-you Goodstart Gawler South!
