About Goodstart Prospect
Goodstart Prospect is a 54-placed early learning and childcare centre situated approximately five kilometres from our beautiful city of Adelaide. Although Goodstart Prospect sits on the outskirts of a busy city we pride ourselves on our friendly and small community feel.
We are very proud to say that the centre received a rating of Exceeding, after being assessed by the regulatory authority. This process assesses us in the seven quality areas including Educational Practice, Children’s Health and Safety, Physical Environment, Staffing Arrangements, Relationships with Children, Partnerships with Families and Leadership and Management. We are now in the process of applying for an Excellence rating.
Our dedicated team of educators come from diverse backgrounds who bring with them a variety of skills, knowledge and experiences. This makes Goodstart Prospect unique and provides our children with the opportunity to experience languages, food, songs and customs from these cultures. Many of our educators have been with us for more than 10 years and are committed to the care and education of your children. As a centre we pride ourselves on providing upskilling opportunities for our educators through further study and training.
Our play-based, stimulating curriculum is based on the Early Years’ Learning Framework and our rooms – from Nursery to Kindergarten are all geared with this in mind. We also develop engaging programs that account for each child’s individual interests, needs and strength, and with each step we are ensuring the children are ready to take the big step into schooling.
Our Storypark platform, as well as regular family nights and emailed newsletters, enable us to stay in close contact with families and ensure 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, our playground areas are a balance of natural and manmade elements and play surfaces. We have carefully designed and planned spaces to encourage a stronger understanding of the environment and sustainability while giving children the scope to explore, play and let their imaginations roam. We are fortunate to have a fantastic undercover play area which allows our children to enjoy outdoor experiences all year round.
Our cook Steph creates nutritious and delicious meals for the children, catering for the requirements of babies and the older children and for those who have dietary requirements.
We also host our GoodFriends Playgroup at the centre every Monday from 9:30am to 10:30am. Bookings required and a gold coin donation.
We look forward to meeting you and being part of your child’s early education.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:
Pre-Kindy 3-4 years
Pre kinder - 3years to 4 years
Kinder - 4 years to 5 years
Clair Lang Centre Director
Hello, my name is Clair Lang and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Prospect. I have been working in Childcare since 2013 starting at Magill.

As educator’s I believe our role is to provide children with a safe and secure environment and to encourage children to have the sureness to try new things and approach challenges with the confidence to use their skills and abilities overcome them.
Here at Prospect we are lucky enough to have highly qualified educators who work closely with families to provide the highest quality program for your child.
