About Goodstart Blakeview:

Goodstart Early Learning Blakeview is in Adelaide’s North. Located opposite Blakeview Primary School and Trinity College. Caters for 79 children. The centre is open from 6.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday. A very family orientated early learning centre, the caring, long term, dedicated educators create a homey atmosphere within the centre. Many friendships have flourished and from this they find that families return as additions are made to their family.

 

One of the activities that sets them apart is their morning breakfast, not only for the children but for parents that may be in a rush on their way to work. This is just one example of the many ways they aim to make families feel like they are a part of their child’s day.  Meet the Team at Blakeview – click here to watch a video introducing some of the team at our centre.
