About Goodstart ANU
Goodstart Early Learning ANU is now open.
Our 112 place early learning centre on the Australian National University (ANU) campus in Canberra. The building is conveniently locted on North Road, Acton at the northern entry point to the University and adjoining Willows Oval.
The centre will provide much-needed early learning and care for families of ANU staff, students and locals.
Naturally inspired, age-based learning spaces will provide care for children from six weeks to 5 years old and will be open from 7.30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
The architecturally designed, single-level building provides direct access to the outdoor play spaces. There are two custom designed separate play areas – one for nursery aged children and one for 2 to 5 year olds – providing age-appropriate, play-based learning.
Our Preschool Program aims for the right mix of fun, structured learning and physical activity. Delivered by tertiary qualified Early Learning Teachers in a safe, nurturing environment where the child’s experience is paramount. The formal parts of the Goodstart Preschool Program are offered within the long day care hours, offering greater flexibility and convenience for working families and students.
Convenient drop off and pick up zones are located right outside the entrance and pram and bike storage is available within the centre.
A healthy and nutritious morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided by a qualified cook in our commercial kitchen on-site. We can accommodate all dietary requirements.
All nappies, wipes and sunscreen are included in your daily fee.

Fay Suisuiki Centre Director, Goodstart ANU
Hello and Welcome to all Families, Children and Educators. My name is Fay and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart ANU.
I have worked in the Early Childhood Education and Care industry for 17 years in a variety of different roles and am fortunate to have worked with all age groups within Early Childhood, in both Public and Private schools in the ACT. I am currently studying my Masters in Leadership and Management in Education as I understand and acknowledge there is always room to improve our practices.
I am an advocate for children’s rights and as an educator I aim to ensure children have the best outcomes to learn, develop and express themselves freely through encouragement; empowering them to develop a strong sense of identity.
I welcome and value family input, and working in partnerships with families and educators, and actively being involved within the community, is paramount to everything we do.
I look forward to getting to know you all as you embark on your journey with us at Goodstart ANU.
