About our centre

Goodstart Semaphore South is located near the northern beaches of Adelaide, close to local schools, community services, shops and transport routes.

We offer a relaxed and welcoming environment where professional educators foster childrens love of learning, friendship, imagination and discovery in a safe and caring environment.

Children who attend Semaphore South have access to quality and engaging early learning programs that are planned to reflect individual learning needs and interests. Working together with families these programs are supported and taught by qualified educators who have a passion for the care and development of children.

From Nursery to Preschool, we have set up a program in line with an Early Learning Framework that involves sensory and play based learning opportunities. Colourful, natural and stimulating surroundings ensure the children have the chance to grow and develop; we are focused on guiding and helping the children to take the all-important step towards school.

Outside we have an age appropriate play space and equipment for both our age groups, all geared to enhance the children’s awareness of their surroundings and the greater environment cementing their understanding of the importance of sustainability for our future. We have sandpits in our outdoor areas which challenge the children’s physical skills in large open spaces with lots of shade, reflecting the community which we live in.

With many of our educators living locally or having worked in the centre for several years, Semaphore South Goodstart has a strong bond with many of the families and businesses across the Port Adelaide and Semaphore area creating a district community feel.

Through key partnerships and development of skills and talents of our families and the broader community, we are able to enrich the children’s learning program with “real life” visits and incursions along with exciting visits to locations within the community.

Senka Jelic

Centre Director

My name is Senka Jelic, and I am the Centre Director for the community at Goodstart Semaphore South.

As educators and advocates for early childhood education, I firmly believe that we are privileged and challenged with the most important job in society - to provide high-quality education that enables every child to see themselves as confident and capable learners.

As a Leader with extensive experience in the profession, I believe it is my role to inspire, encourage and empower every educator to believe in their own potential, which positively impacts the quality of early childhood education provided for our young children and families. Fundamental to my philosophy and pedagogy is that strong and meaningful relationships are the key to creating environments where all members of the community feel a strong sense of belonging and thrive. I look forward to working in partnership with families as you are your child’s first educator and know them best.

On a personal note, outside of work, I enjoy reading, travelling and spending time with my 8-year-old daughter.

I am very excited to be part of your team and look forward to working and reflecting together to ensure Goodstart Semaphore South continues to be a place that enables all children, families and educators to flourish.
