About our centre

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 located 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to Goodstart Early Learning ANU.

Stacie-Maree Gordon

Centre Director, Goodstart ANU

Hello, my name is Stacie-Maree and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Early Learning ANU.

I have been working in Early Childhood Education and Care since 2007, I commenced working with Goodstart in February 2019.

A little bit about my pedagogical approach - I am a strong advocate for children's rights and their access to quality play focused education. I believe developing respectful nurturing relationships with children provides them with a sense of belonging and gives them the best chance at educational success.

I believe in always being inclusive of children's voices within a program, as this best supports the development of their agency and curiosity, which allows them to investigate new ideas; this also allows children to understand they are capable and they are trusted to express ideas, which in turn, builds their confidence and scaffolds their self-esteem within themselves to always try new things.

I have a passion for supporting and mentoring my team to strive for professional goals and I ensure they will always be given opportunities to exceed in their roles. Our team works inclusively and whole heartedly to provide high quality, inclusive education and care for the children that attend Goodstart ANU, and we endeavour to build strong, respectful relationships with our families and community.

If we sound like a centre that aligns with your values for early learning, please leave an enquiry, book in a tour and we look forward to meeting you and your child/ren.
