Our Centre

Goodstart Early Learning Child Care Centre in Belair opened in 2020 after being in the area for more than 20 years. 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.

The beautiful outdoor play was designed around the protected gum trees (where our lovely Koala friends live) and features our signature South Australian coloured arbour, natural enclosed quiet areas, sensory play and sandpits with water play.
