Fiona Vannuccini

Centre Director

My name is Fiona Vannuccini, and I am the Centre Director here at Helensvale.

Welcome to Goodstart Helensvale

My name is Fiona Vannuccini, and I have the honour of leading our Homely and welcoming community here in Helensvale, on the land of the Yugambeh people. With 30 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 studying an Associate Diploma In Social Science through Victoria University TAFE which ignited my passion for early learning. Study came opportunities to explore many learning philosophies in practice. Over the years, I've experienced and learned from a wide variety of philosophical styles and practices and how to adapt these to suit individuals and have never stopped seeking more knowledge and understanding.

My early childhood philosophy

My philosophy is to ensure that every interaction fosters a strong sense of capability, significance, and uniqueness. I apply this from the youngest child to evert member of the families and our team.  For me, it's all about ensuring there is a strong sense of wellbeing, opportunity to learn from every moment and the developing of connections with others

What I love most about Goodstart Helensvale

Goodstart Helensvale is special because we are a cosy centre hidden away in Helensvale with educators that care and support the community. 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 Goodstart Helensvale. 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,

Fiona Vannuccini
