About our centre

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 Preschool 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.

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.

The centre was my daughter's second home for more than 4 years. She loved everyday going to childcare. All the educators are amazing, friendly and really know each child. She is starting her Reception today and is so ready thanks for her educators' wonderful work preparing her so well for it. They learn by playing so it is great fun. Thanks the Goodstart Prospect team for providing my little one with a great start!
Our experience with Goodstart at Prospect has been amazing, supportive and absolutely positive for our child. The individual care and nurturing provided to our child by each educator is world class and our child continues to develop sensationally. Can't recommend this centre and their amazing educators enough.
My son has been attending Goodstart Prospect for over a year now and really enjoys his time with his peers and wonderful educators. This Centre has contributed to his development in many ways from learning to walk, socialising, individual play, group play and now talking. The staff are very friendly and always go that extra mile for both child and parent to make sure we get the best experience and care. It is a warm and welcoming community and both my son and I are proud to be a part of it.
Goodstart Prospect is amazing and the staff are so welcoming and friendly. My son has been attending the centre for 9 months now and the improvement in his physical, cognitive, emotional and social, language, sensory and motor skills is enormous is such a short period. My son enjoys going each day, which makes me so happy that I know he is being cared for really well. I highly recommend this centre.
Over the past 8 years our 3 children have attended Goodstart Prospect. They have all begun in the nursery room and progressed right through to kindy level. The director Helena and staff have always gone above and beyond supporting our children’s needs and development. They are attentive, caring and supportive. Two of my children had allergies and all staff are aware and on high alert. They will always check and call when necessary which has been very reassuring. My two girls and son always come home happy, smiling and eager to share their day at ELC with me. The educators follow the Early Learning framework principles and I especially look forward to photos and daily summaries of the kids activities. They are in a safe and caring environment where they can thrive as young individuals. This in turn allows me to head off to work knowing my kids are in safe hands.

Riddhi Patel

Centre Director

I began my learning journey at Prospect as a student and have now been given the incredible opportunity to be in the position of Centre Director.

I've worked at Goodstart Prospect, Prospect Road for 10 years in a variety of roles, and for the last four years I've been an Assistant Director.

My philosophy as an Early Childhood Leader is to provide a welcoming, nurturing, engaging, and stimulating environment, offering each child the opportunity to learn, play and grow. By providing a safe and nurturing environment we will help all children to develop a strong sense of identity and belonging, while catering for their individual needs and interests.

I am committed to extend on my own professional development to ensure I am up to date with current practices and having a strong knowledge of what is best for our children and always striving for excellence.

I look forward to meeting you all and supporting the children, families and Educators in the centre.
