Goodstart Early Learning has been named the winner of three prestigious awards at the Australian Business Awards


  • Goodstart: ABA100® Winner for Business Innovation  


  • Goodstart, Integral and Xap: ABA100® Winner for Digital Transformation  


  • Goodstart, Integral and Xap: ABA100® Winner for Change Management. 


The Australian Business Awards are an international awards program honouring organisations that demonstrate the core values of business excellence, product excellence, sustainability and commercial success in their respective industries. 


Goodstart’s innovative application of machine learning for safety performance improvement picked up the Business Innovation Award, and the roll-out of Xap in collaboration with project partners Integral and Xap, won the Digital Transformation and Change Management awards. 


CEO Julia Davison said the awards recognise Goodstart’s focus on best practice in advanced analytics and safety and giving our centre teams and families the resources they need to manage their bookings and attendances. 


“Winning three Australian Business Awards is a huge accolade for our teams who are always seeking to create better outcomes for children, our families and our centre teams,” Ms Davison said. 


Over the past 24 months, Goodstart introduced machine learning to improve its safety performance and reduce child and employee injuries, led by Martin Knell, Head of Data and Analytics. 


“While Goodstart’s safety performance is one of the best in our sector we’re always seeking to be better. Improved safety performance is a priority for every team member, every day,” Ms Davison said. 


Working with Integral and Xap, Goodstart placed children, families and its people at the heart of their project design and execution. 


“Replacing Goodstart’s core technology was a major digital transformation project that had uncompromising objectives including, reducing everyday administration for our people to improving efficiencies and improving everyday experiences for our families and Goodstarters, from signing in children to accounts and billing,” Ms Davison continued. 


“Ultimately by placing children and our people right at the heart of project design, it’s resulted in freeing up our Goodstarters to do more of what they do best – supporting children’s learning and development.
