What babies learn

During their first year, babies develop trust in people and their environment. Without this secure foundation, learning in other areas cannot flourish. Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum supports those first connections, allowing for emotional security, self-identity and self-confidence to emerge.

How Babies Learn

Through their strong relationships, our trained and accredited educators are able to ‘tune in’ to the individual preferences and personalities of your baby. They partner closely with families to create a Circle of Security so babies will thrive.

Where Babies Learn

Our Healthy Beginnings nurseries are thoughtfully designed, with spaces for babies to explore and play, safely sleep and enjoy their meals. Look beyond the toys and you’ll see the careful planning and understanding of how babies develop and learn in their first year.

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.
