About our centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre Semaphore Park is a small three room, 70 place centre. We are tucked into a lovely little part of our community, close to local schools, shops and residentials areas, as well as main roads and transport routes.

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. Our large trees offer plenty of natural shade all year round.

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.

This is our second year at Goodstart Semaphore Park. I have continued to be impressed with everything they provide. Such great communication. The staff are so consistent. That’s how I know we’re onto a great centre because all the staff clearly like working there. This means my son has made the best relationships and is so happy. Which is all a mum wants :)
My husband and I started our daughter at Goodstart Early Learning Semaphore Park in February this year. We were scared, hesitant and sad to see her go off to start being independent, creating friendships and learn more than we could offer at home. At first we were worried she wouldn't want to stay, but quickly learnt after our initial visit, she actually didn't want to leave . Shan and her team are absolutely amazing . She gave us a thorough tour of the centre, explained everything from kitchen, dietary allergies, to good, cooked meals daily and alot more. We loved it was a smaller centre with more opportunity for our daughter to learn and have more time with her teachers . They immediately made us feel welcome and like we were part of the family for years. She will also continue on with Kindy there as I'm so happy with how she's been progressing, not to mention she loves her friends and teacher. Thank you Shan and your team for looking after our girl, welcoming our family and for being super patient and helpful throughout the whole admission process. Highly recommend.
Myself and my son love this centre. Right from the first tour I knew this was the one! The rooms are large, open and clean. The outdoor play space is lovely! So much shade from the beautiful trees. The staff are always welcoming and provide regular updates. This was so important to me being a first time mum and seeing my baby happy, connected and having so many fun experiences.
Thank you for treating the kids with such love, care and warmth. I love that when I leave my son, I know he is surrounded by such wonderful humans who make him feel safe.
We have had the most wonderful experience with this centre! With children who have travelled through all three of the rooms; transitions are smooth and we couldn’t ask for more out of the staff! Our boys love childcare and this hasn’t always been the case, so we know they are being provided with what they need social/emotionally, while also being exposed to some wonderful learning and investigation. Thrilled to have chosen this centre for our family, we recommend highly!
As a family we will always treasure the memories of our son attending this centre. He has learned and gained a great deal of confidence during his time here and made some lovely friends. Thank you to the team for all you do and have done.
We are always greeted with warmth at drop off with extra care on those harder days. My son's educators care so much and have built a strong relationship with him and our family which means so much and makes such a difference. I love hearing about the fun he had on the drive home and I especially love the daily updates we receive as well as the delicious/nutritious meals he is served.
