Belconnen Early Childhood Centre (BECC) is a 45 place centre full of opportunities! Opportunities to explore, experiment, meet new friends, all whilst learning through play.

We are uniquely located in the Westfield mall where we bring nature and the outdoors in.

Our curriculum supports and encourages children in the development of identity, emotional and physical wellbeing, communication, cognitive skills, sustainability, cultural awareness including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. All whilst they grow into an active member of the community around us.

Here at BECC the children can be emerged in learning whilst having an enjoyable day.

Meet the Director


Nana Saturno 

Nahir (or ‘Nana’) is the Director of Belconnen Early Childhood Centre. Hailing from Latin America, Nana moved to Australia seven years ago and immediately fell in love with it, moving to Canberra to work at the Centre.

Nana has a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care, completed in Melbourne. She has been working in the Education and Care sector for nearly 20 years, and truly believes in the role educators’ play in inspiring children to reach their full potential.

Nana became an educator for this very reason; because she values early childhood education as the foundation for lifelong learning.

“Children have a natural curiosity, and we need to provide opportunities for them to experiment, discover, explore, and solve problems – learning about themselves and the world they live in,” she says.

“I always encourage my team to be involved, setting up enriching learning environments and meaningful experiences for children. I believe that learning takes place when children are actively engaged, interested, and challenged by experiences and their learning environments.”

Nana strongly believes that the skills and knowledge of the fellow educators at BECC are what makes the Centre the ideal place for a child’s early development.

“They are more than just educators, they personally commit to and advocate for the children in their care,” Nana says.

As a fan of the arts, Nana also believes in the power of creativity and its contribution to learning.

“I believe in the importance of a holistic approach,” she says. “For that reason, our centre promotes experiences that combine creative expression and investigation and discovering projects”
