Give your children the best education in the Hills

Care for Kids is a great resource where you can search for childcare services simply by entering your postcode. It’ll even tell you about vacancies. Are you in Mount Barker? We recommend having a look at Welly Road Early Learning Centre and the Mount Barker Community Centre.

The Learning Sanctuary and the Littlehampton Early Learning Centre are also five-star, day care centres close by. Balhannah’s Zebra Early Learning Centre is worth a visit, too.

As for the school search, this will probably be a longer process, but these options are a great place to start. Here’s another great resource to look at the different schools available in your area.

Plan a visit to Hahndorf Primary School, Heathfield Primary School, St Mark’s Lutheran School and Woodside Primary School. There’s plenty of high school options, too. Some of the well-known secondary schools include Cornerstone College, Eastern Fleurieu School, Hills Montessori School, St Francis de Sales College and Heathfield High School.

Here’s another resource that could assist in your search. The Hills Christian Community School made it onto the list of the most popular schools in South Australia.

Once you’ve determined your interest in public, private or independent schools, this will narrow the search. But it doesn’t hurt to peruse them all and see which one ‘speaks’ to you.

Whether you’re wanting your kids to carry on the family tradition or have a say in where they’d like to go to school, one thing’s for sure: You have plenty of options in the Adelaide Hills.
