About Goodstart Seaford Rise
Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Seaford Rise is a purpose built child care centre located in the south of Adelaide in the growing Seaford area. The centre is either a short drive or in walking distance from the beautiful Moana and Seaford beaches, Seaford train station, Seaford Shopping Centre and nearby schools and the McLaren Vale wineries. There is a relaxing, easy going atmosphere, the perfect place to play and stay.
We have four large indoor rooms and two large yards to cater for the ever inquisitive and growing minds of the children within our care. We follow the National Quality Framework and Early Years Learning Framework to guide our planning for the children’s development from 6 weeks to 5 years. Sustainability has become embedded in our programs as the children are encouraged to recycle, reuse and reduce.
The centre has long servicing educators taking the centre from strength to strength building strong relationships with families. 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 a balance of natural and manmade environments which challenge the children and give them every opportunity to let their imaginations run free. With a natural sandpit, outdoor platform, lots of shade, fruit trees and a vege patch, we can enrich the children's learning through the concepts of conservation and sustainability.
We have a cook on premises five days a week and we provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. The meals that we provide are healthy and nutritious and we also cater for children who have allergies to certain foods.
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. The centre continues to build relationships with local businesses and other community services within the Seaford Rise area.
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.
We provide early learning & care to these groups:

Carol Carr Centre Director
Hello there! My name is Carol and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Seaford Rise.
I have been a Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning since 2006 and have worked in the early learning and child care industry for more than 20 years.
During that time I have worked with children of all age groups and gained experience across a number of roles within the centres I have worked in. My experience is backed up by professional credentials and strong qualifications.
I believe it is a privilege to be a part of a child’s learning journey. I am very passionate about my role at this Centre and welcome the opportunity to get to know and work with all of our families.
The team I am fortunate to work with shares my belief that every child should have access to the highest standard of early education, and as such we work hard to develop and maintain relationships with families and the broader community.
I look forward to meeting you and your family and exploring how we can support you on your child’s early learning journey.
