About Goodstart Hackham
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Hackham is situated in the South of Adelaide on Penneys Hill Road, just off Main South Road. We are close to schools, shops and public transport - making the daily drop-off and pick-up a less stressful routine!
We are a purpose built child care centre divided into four main rooms based on age and development. We cater for children between the ages of six weeks to five years of age and during the school holidays we also cater for school aged children.
Our children are cared for by warm and friendly, highly qualified educators who cater for each child's individual needs. Our educators are all trained in first aid, and receive continuous support and training in a range of early childhood areas.
Inside, all of the rooms - from Nursery to Kindergarten / Preschool - are all 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; and we are focused on ensuring the children are ready to take that all important step up to school.
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 age appropriate play spaces and equipment, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surrounds and the greater environment, as well as their understanding of the importance of sustainability.
We have a cook who provides three healthy nutritious meals per day, we supply all nappies, linen and sunscreen.
Our centre vision is for all children to feel safe, secure and respected in a caring and encouraging environment that enables growth and enhanced learning with quality educators. 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 would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family and learn a little about how we can best support you on the journey of lifelong learning.
