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.

Aaron Lane Centre Director, Goodstart ANU
My name is Aaron Lane and I am the Centre Director of Goodstart ANU. I have been working with children and young people for over 16 years and found early learning to be by far the most fulfilling experience of my teaching career.
My vision is to provide an early learning service that caters to the 'whole child' - where all aspects of the individual are celebrated and supported. Where children are able to grow and learn in a safe and stimulating learning environment in the way that suits their individual needs and personality.
I believe that each child is 'one in seven billion' and comes from a family that is as unique as they are, and by working together we can make sure your child has an amazing early learning experience.
I look forward to welcoming you to Goodstart ANU.
