About our centre

Goodstart Onkaparinga Rise is located on Penney’s 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’re 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 school age. 

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.

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.

All of the learning environments are set up in line with an Early Years Learning Framework, with sensory and play based learning opportunities.

As a first time mum, I was super nervous about parting with my daughter when she was 18 months old. All the staff made the transition easy, and didn’t make me feel like a burden for calling a few times a day to check in and always called me if she was upset All the staff made me and my daughter feel super comfortable with all the changes and changes to rooms she had made throughout her time at the centre Now that my daughter is in kindergarten I will miss all the staff dearly and thank them so so much

Enrol now!

When every moment counts, make them Goodstart moments.

Kimberley Carter

Centre Director

Hi there! My name is Kimberley Carter and I am the Centre Director here at Goodstart Early Learning Onkaparinga Rise.

I have worked in the early learning and child care sector since 2003. I hold a Diploma in Community Services (Children’s Services) and an Advanced Diploma in Community Sector Management. I am also a certified Marte Meo Practitioner, which has been instrumental in building strong, lasting relationships with children and their families.

I'm very passionate about delivering high quality care to all families and children within my centre. I am an advocate for professional development for myself and all educators, as I believe this only continues to build strong and passionate professional educators who actively implement, promote and advocate for high quality outcomes for all children and families.

I believe that all children are unique and should be respected, and I thoroughly enjoy watching them grow and develop into independent little people.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to our centre. I am always available to discuss how we can support you and your child on the pathway to lifelong learning.

Call us on 8186 1322, or click the 'Book a tour' button above to arrange a personalised tour. If you’d like a tour outside of the offered tour times please contact me so that we can organise this for you.
