The Best Start For Your Child

Milestones Early Learning is a high-quality provider of childcare where every child experiences the joy of learning in a caring community. Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum draws on current research, evidence-informed practices and specific programs in each age group, such as The Circle of Security in our babies’ rooms, Abecedarian Language Priority for our Toddlers and Inquiry-Based Learning Projects for older children.

We’re experts at knowing how kids develop and grow, and we nurture them through these vital and precious early stages of their lives. Through these essential early years, children change so quickly - they are constantly absorbing new information and expanding their skill set. We gently encourage and guide them to explore their potential. Our philosophy, which combines play-based learning and intentional teaching, allows children to gravitate towards their interests, creating meaningful experiences that you’ll all be able to treasure.

We know you want your kids to enjoy and make the most of their precious pre-school years, and you can trust that Milestones Early Learning will not only ensure this but help them graduate into a lifetime of loving to learn.

Milestones Early Learning Centre Outdoor Playground for Kids

Outdoor Play Equipment

Outdoor play is an essential experience for young children as it plays a vital role in their physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.

Each Milestones Early Learning Centre features an exciting outdoor play area for children to explore, build confidence, and develop friendships. The outdoor play area is different at each Milestones centre, but all include a large playground, sandpit and space to run, jump, balance and climb.

Our onsite cook prepares fresh meals for children daily

Meals Prepared Onsite

Each day our Centre Cooks prepare a wide variety of nutritious meals and purees onsite for the children and babies in our centres, taking the time to involve the children in meal preparation and healthy food education.

Creativity is essential when satisfying a number of young food critics every day, as is care, to ensure children's daily nutritional needs, and any individual cultural or dietary requirements are being met.

Note: A small number of our centres do not provide meals. The Centre Manager will let you know when you meet the team prior to enrolment though.
