We are a 66 place centre located in the North West of NSW. Gunnedah is situated in the midst of the traditional lands of the Kamilaroi People, surrounded by agricultural and mining industries. Our programs and practices reflect our commitment to our families, the community and the wonderful diversity of the surrounding areas. We offer our children the opportunity to explore through play using their own interests to support their growing knowledge in the areas of science, maths, computers, multi-culture, diversity and gender equality. All our children have a right to an individual opinion and to express it.

They are treated as individuals with unique personalities, as we support them to grow and learn. Our centre plays an important role in the lives of our families and our families play an important role in our centre. We welcome you to visit us here at Goodstart Early Learning Gunnedah and meet our friendly team.
