Milestones Early Learning Centres

Milestones provides high quality child care and early education for children aged 0-5 years, including nursery, toddler, preschool/kindergarten and OSHC care.

Our educators and teachers are trained in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum, and are experts at knowing how kids develop and grow. We nurture children through these precious early stages of their lives in a caring and inspiring environment, encouraging them to gravitate towards their interests, create meaningful experiences and develop strong bonds.

Our days include a range of play-based and intentional teaching experiences, messy play activities, the chance to explore our stimulating outdoor play areas, and of course the opportunity to rest and sleep.

Each day our Centre Cooks prepare a wide variety of nutritious meals and purees for the children and babies
in our centres, taking the time to involve the children in meal preparation and healthy food education. Care is made to ensure children's daily nutritional needs, and any individual cultural and dietary requirements are met.

Milestones is proudly owned and operated by Affinity Education Group, the leading provider of early education and child care in Australia. We are driven by our professional goals and values and are committed to ensuring we provide the best early childhood experience for you and your children. Our mission is to inspire and nurture individuals to reach their full potential, and help children 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.

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.
