About Goodstart Somerton Park
Goodstart Somerton Park opened in late 2017. Our newly constructed early learning centre features seven seperate, naturally inspired learning spaces, each with direct access to our landscaped designed outdoor environment providing children with the opportunity to move freely between the indoor and outdoor. Our environments have been specifically designed to engage, challenge and excite the children throughout all of their developmental stages.
We provide high quality education and care for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. Using the Early Years Learning Framework to guide our education program and scaffold children’s learning, our educators are passionate and committed to providing nurturing and simulating early learning environment. With a strong commitment and focus to create a warm and welcoming community focused centre we look forward to building and maintaining meaningful and true relationships with all our families and children.

Natasha Olrich Centre Director
Hello! I'm Natasha and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Somerton park.
I was previously the Centre Director at Goodstart’s Glenelg site since 2006 moving to Somerton park in 2017 and I have a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education. My many years in the early learning and child care industry have enabled me to gain valuable experience in all age groups and in a number of roles.
My love of children sees me spending lots of time on the floor with the children and in all the rooms supporting the educators. I strive to provide the best, most fun and safest learning environment for all of the children in our care.
We have a great responsibility to deliver the highest quality of early education and it is a privilege to see the children develop and learn - and know you had a part to play in that!
The team I am fortunate to work with shares my passion for seeing children meet their potential. They are dedicated, professional, experienced and highly qualified.
I look forward to working with you all and exploring how we can navigate through the early learning adventure.
