About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre located on Port Road opened in 2018. Our newly constructed centre features six separate, 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. 

Our beautiful outdoor dining hub connects our learning spaces to the playground and provides a shaded, outdoor dining space for all children and educators.  Our onsite kitchen with child-height servery allows our centre cook to serve and interact with our children and engage in cooking and preparing meals.

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.

I cannot praise this centre enough! The care provided here is EXCEPTIONAL. I have been to multiple childcares now in order to find the right one and finally I can say I have never had a better experience. Each child's learning is approached to your child's individual needs, they take their time to ensure theyre treated as an individual and not just another number. The approach is treated as a family and you can only praise how much effort is put into their learning approach and welcoming, warm atmosphere. No matter the area, each teacher will welcome you with open arms (even if they don't have your child in their room). I know each and every day my son is in good hands. Kate's approach to preschool education program is exceptional and each day my son comes home with something new he's learnt and nothing but a smile. No matter the problem, big or small they will inform you of your child's day and keep you up to date of everything instead of leaving it till the end of the day, you know they care. Are flexible and always willing to accommodate to your last minute bookings or swap around with bookings. Keep doing all that you guys do because your hard work does not go unnoticed!

Debbie Twiggs

Centre Director

Hi my name is Debbie Twiggs. I have 19 years’ experience working in childcare in a variety of roles. I began my childcare career in 1993 working as an assistant and felt that I had found my passion. I then decided to study, gaining my Diploma and became a Team Leader. From there I progressed to Centre Director, Area Manager and then moved to Perth to take on the role as Regional Manager for ABC Learning Centres and then Goodstart Early Learning Centres.

In 2012 I moved back to Adelaide for family reasons at which time I had an opportunity to take on a role as Office Manager at a large furniture importer and have been there for the past 10 years.

When the position of Centre Director presented itself, I realised that my passion in working in Childcare was as strong as ever. I believe children learn best through play and every child should be given the opportunity to be the best they can be. I look forward to meeting all of you very soon!

Call us on 8268 5819, 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.
