  • Welcome to The Gawler Riverside

    Early Learning Centres

    At Gawler Riverside we respect children’s right to quality holistic early learning experiences. We believe care and education are intrinsically linked to provide each child opportunity to realise their own potential in an open inquiry based learning environment. We strive to deliver these same learning opportunities regardless of their time in attendance or age knowing that at every moment, at every age, all children have their own wondrous capacity for learning to be nurtured.

    • Thank you so much for the all the care that you have provided our little girl over the 4 years at the centre. She has thrived and it has been like a second home to her. Thank you so much!

  • Our Classes

    Our preschool program has four dedicated classes
  • At Gawler Riverside we recognize children’s learning potential from the earliest ages. To support this we dedicate Degree Qualified Early Childhood Teachers with all our children to support delivery of tailored learning opportunities from birth through to leaving us for Primary School.
  • During each day we operate four main class groups with our Nursery typically being broken down further into smaller groupings in line with the dramatic developmental changes that can be seen through a child’s first two years.

    There is currently vacancies for all days of the week for children aged 0-2 years starting January 2018.  Please contact the centre if you are interested in enrolling your child.

  • Children feel how adults treat them and give importance to their ideas and activities. At Gawler Riverside children are given the freedom to create their own experiences. We strive to support children’s learning through play to encourage new possibilities by supporting self-expression, curiosity, wonder, amazement and fun.
  • Reorganisation of children’s knowledge occurs with continual exposure and exploration of their own ideas and images. At Gawler Riverside we believe in a collaborative and inclusive child centred environment that is reciprocal and responsive to children’s needs. One that nurtures and encourages holistic development of the child through an environment that is safe, stimulating and promotes positive relationships for all.
