About Prospect Community Early Education and Care
We are a not-for-profit centre located in Prospect, South Australia. We offer up to 85 places per day across 4 rooms in a purpose built environment.
The centre was originally opened in 1994 and underwent major renovation and extension between 2014-2016, updating the kitchen and bathroom areas, adding on a 4th learning space and updating resource rooms for our Educators. All flooring and cabinetry across the centre was updated and replaced. Gardens across all rooms had a level of work undertaken and the front community garden was also enhanced.
The Management Committee is what is known as the governing body of the organisation and they have overall legal, financial and managerial responsibility for the Centre.
We are incorporated under the Associations Act 1985, thus its activities are bound by a constitution. We are members of the Community Children’s Centres SA who offer support to all community centres.
Responsibility for the day-to-day management, provision of services, and administration is delegated by the Committee to the Director.
'We have an Early Childhood Teacher in our room with the older children and a Lead Educator in each of the 3 younger rooms. Our centre has highly trained Educators with over 80% holding a Diploma of Early Childhood Education or higher.
What do we do?
Prospect Community Early Education and Care, aims to provide quality care that encompasses all areas of development and meets the needs of the children, families and wider community.
We do this by supporting families as their children progress through early childhood and by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which social interactions and further learning through play and exploration are encouraged.
We aim to provide quality care for children, which allows them to reach their full potential, and which complements care within the family and supports parents/caregivers, Educators and the community.
We aim to encourage:
A sense of self worth
The formation of stable, caring relationships with Educators and other children
The development of independence and personal responsibility
An awareness and understanding of differences in culture, language, gender, age, needs and ability
The development of problem solving, negotiation and self help skills
An awareness of and respect for our environment

Prospect Community Early Education and Care Reviews
Marketa Berryman - almost 5 years ago
The best early education and care I have experienced. Beautiful, caring, professional, creative and strongly committed staff and management. This childcare centre has been consistently providing high quality care and education for as long as I know over at least the past 12 years. I had all my three children going there regularly over eight years and they all loved it and thrived in it's amazing environment.
