About Goodstart Parafield Gardens
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Parafield Gardens is tucked in a convenient part of Parafield only 20 minutes from the centre of Adelaide.
Our 70-place centre provides care for three age groups – Nursery, Toddlers and Kindergarten / Preschool. We work with our families and partner with organisations throughout our community to develop a curriculum which is based around play, experience and routine, all in line with the Early Years Learning Framework.
We are also proudly part of the Enhancing Children’s Outcomes (EChO) program, offering our children and families services through speech pathologists, child and family practitioners, occupational therapists and helping to meet the broader needs of children and families in our community. Our educators are well resourced to connect with families in support of children’s learning and wellbeing and are able to offer additional opportunities for families including developmental observations and evening workshops on requested topics e.g. toilet training, transition to school, speech and language in the early years.
Each of our three rooms are set up to promote stimulating, fun learning and outside we have wooden cubbies, garden beds, rainwater tanks, worm farms, vegetable gardens and all natural surrounds to help in teaching children about the natural environment and sustainability.
Lots of play and learning makes children hungry, so we offer the children breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack and our qualified cook prepares meals in our commercial kitchen, five days a week. We also supply nappies, sleep linen and sunscreen for the children during their stay with us. All of our educators have current first aid, mandatory notification training and a police clearance.
At Goodstart Early Learning Parafield Gardens, our educators are qualified with vast experience in early learning. They are warm, friendly, helpful, nurturing and very approachable. We have our own Reconciliation Action Plan in practice which is supported by Narragunnawali Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our centre and showing you how we can work together to give your child the best possible start to a journey of lifelong learning.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
