We also have an art studio for children and families alike to enjoy, and an Indigenous Perspectives corner to teach the children more about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

This curriculum is designed as a part of the Australian government's early years learning framework and it's delivered by bachelor-qualified early childhood teachers. This early education program applies across the country with school readiness in mind.

Shannon Maguire

Centre Director

Welcome to Goodstart Kambah my name is Shannon Maguire and I am the Centre Director.

My early childhood educator journey began in 1998, where I started in supporting roles before moving on to becoming a room leader and Early Childhood Teacher. I have been part of centre management teams for the past 15 years in roles of assistant director, Educational Leader and Centre Director. While I was working, I was studying at university, working towards my degree in teaching, where I graduated with my Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching birth to 8years) in 2012. Studying further in the profession I love, has given me the opportunity to build on my knowledge, share this with others and build strong relationships with children, families and fellow educators.

I joined the Goodstart Early learning Kambah team in November 2022 and enjoying everyday since. I am very familiar with Kambah area and community, where  I myself grew up in this area and attended school close by. My experience of growing up in this area means I can share my childhood memories with the children- Looking out the windows or being out on walks, I hope to create memories for the children like the memories of my childhood I share with them.

Working with children and becoming a teacher has been my passion goal since a very early age and I could not imagine being anything else. The best part of working in Early Childhood is that everyday is different and so rewarding! Watching children grow and learn, achieve new goals, build meaningful relationships and just have fun as they explore the world around them is amazing and precious.

I am passionate in creating a nurturing learning environment for children to explore and investigate at their own pace. My goal is to embed Indigenous Culture and learning into our spaces, where children have opportunities to engage in learning which is respectful to the Ngunnawal people.
