About Goodstart Prospect

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.

Join our community to keep in touch with what’s happening in our centre, and get expert information on parenting and early childhood.
