Christine Heit

Centre Director

My name is Christine Heit, and I am the Centre Director at Goodstart Dundowran.

Welcome to Goodstart Dundowran! 

My name is Christine Heit and I have the honour of leading our welcoming and family orientated community here in Dundowran, on the land of the Butchulla people. With 19 years of experience in early childhood education and care, I'm deeply passionate about creating an environment where every child can thrive and discover their unique potential.

My background

I began my journey as a bus driver for the centre, which ignited my passion for early learning. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to achieve my Diploma in Children’s Services, work closely with foster families and support children in out of home care.

My early childhood philosophy

I believe in bringing fun into learning for children, families, and educators. For me, it's all about building relationships with the whole family and supporting children in developing their circle of security.

What I love most about Goodstart Dundowran 

Goodstart Dundowran is special because we have fun, and care for two emotional support guinea pigs. Every day, I'm inspired by the smiles, laughter, and learning that happen within our walls.

My commitment to you

As centre director, my door is always open to families. I'm here to ensure your child's experience with us is nurturing, educational, and fun. I believe in transparent communication and building partnerships with parents to support each child's journey.

Come and say 'Hi'

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Dundowran. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, or better yet, book a tour to see firsthand the wonderful environment we've created for our children. Together, we can make these early years enriching and memorable.


Warm regards,

Christine Heit
