FWith a design reminiscent of subtropical Queensland rainforests and a vision to inspire a love of learning, the latest Goodstart Early Learning centre will soon call Brisbane’s Adelaide Street home.
Floor-to-ceiling glass, a rooftop playground and heritage-listed façade are all features of Goodstart’s childcare centre, which will cater for groups from babies to kindergarten.
According to Goodstart Early Learning State Manager Dr Lesley Jones, the right environment and social interactions are essential to inspire a love of learning. Dr Jones explains that studies show the quality of the early experiences children have in the first five years of life help them reach their full potential.
“[At Goodstart], children will experience the seven senses as they explore the atrium where they can touch the bark of the trees, walk barefoot over the stepping stones and admire the view on raised platforms,” Centre Director Mr Butcher says.
The new Goodstart Early Learning centre on Adelaide Street will neighbour some of the biggest retail names in the CBD.
Major retailers such as H&M, UNIQLO, Crumpler, Jan Logan, Daiso, Jimmy Rod’s Barbershop and Jack London have also taken up residence in the bustling precinct. With these newly-welcomed family members, the CBD now offers everything from fashion to fundamentals.
Our city is sharpening its focus on international fashion, and now that our sunny shores have welcomed this retail royalty, it’s your chance to embrace the iconic invasion.
The Japanese clothing giant has taken Brisbane by storm since its opening in March last year. UNIQLO stocks an abundance of casual wear and outerwear for men, women and children. Ambassadors for the globally-recognised brand include Australian golf star Adam Scott and tennis superstars Novak Djokovic and Kei Nishikori.
Since 2004, H&M has released one or two fashion designer collaborations each year, from Versace to Balmain. The Swedish clothing-retail company is best known for its affordable and quality fast-fashion clothing for men, women, teenagers and children.
This Australian luxury jewellery brand has a contemporary take on timeless elegance. Jan Logan designs are made to be worn and enjoyed every day, with a range including engagement rings, men’s jewellery, baby bracelets and bespoke pieces.
Built for purpose and made to last – that’s the philosophy behind this Melbourne-based bag company. From Melbourne’s laneways to the world’s airways, Crumpler bags are carefully produced and tested beyond industry standards to ensure quality and functionality.
The Melbourne-based menswear brand is inspired by the British and European Mod Rocker scene of the ’60s. Narrow trousers, anorak parkas and slim ties represent Jack London’s signature look: rock and roll mixed with classic tailoring.
From homewares to beauty and personal care, this Japanese shopping wonderland has exploded in the Australian market. The store is awash with bright colours and is a treasure hunt for the bargain-lover, with the vast majority of products priced at an appealing $2.80.
A modern-day oasis of authentic masculinity, this barbershop has become synonymous with style and swag. The talented barbers at Jimmy Rod’s Barbershop provide a stylish service that men don’t even realise they are missing.
