Jacky McDonald Centre Director
Hi there! My name is Jacky and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning Baringa.
I have been in the child care and early learning sectors since 1998 and I have a Diploma of Early Childhood Education. I joined Goodstart in 2004 and started in my role as Centre Director at Goodstart Ballarat in 2011, before moving to the Nambour City View centre in 2015. I am excited to have the opportunity to be part of the growing community at our newest centre - Goodstart Baringa.
I firmly believe that the first five years are the most important, and can make a great difference in children’s lives. My team and I pride ourselves in creating an inviting and stimulating environment at the centre, and are committed to providing each child with the best possible start in life.
All children are entitled to a good education, and I am passionate about making sure that is possible. Every child has a voice – a voice that should be heard, and we have a responsibility to make sure our children have access to the highest quality care.
It's a passion I share with the team I am fortunate to work with. With years of experience and excellent qualifications, this is a team of dedicated and committed professionals.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.
