Gumtree Cottage Joins Milestones Early Learning Community

Affinity Education Group is pleased to announce the recent rebrand and refresh of Gumtree Cottage to Milestones Early Learning Everton Park.

Milestones Early Learning is a well-respected childcare brand within the Lifelong Learning Centres group, owned and operated by Affinity - Australia’s third largest early education and care provider.

The brand represents high-quality early education to support each child’s individual milestone. There are already more than 90 Milestones Early Learning Centres nationally, which will continue growing in the coming years.

The Centre rebranded on 15 March 2022 with new signage installed and additional centre upgrade works, including exciting new displays in the Centre. Branding updates have also been rolled out across the website and Facebook pages.

Centre Manager Tina Barbour, who has worked at the centre for 12 years, said: “The support and encouragement that Affinity Education gives to their staff is first class. There are always opportunities to learn and progress in your career.”

Gumtree Cottage is a well-known and trusted brand in the local community and has been established for 27 years. The staff always look for ways to give back to the community - whether through care packages for the homeless at Christmas, food drives for our local community centre, backpacks for foster children or fundraising for the Hummingbird House.

Milestones Early Learning Everton Park will continue to provide the same high-quality early education and care, with the same educators, that the community has grown to love and trust.

Being part of the Lifelong Learning Centres Network provides educators access to training, quality reviews and resources. Affinity’s research-based approach to early years education is designed to help each child reach their full potential.

Fees and enrolments will be completely unaffected by this new brand.

We are accepting new families to join our centre. So if you have friends or family who might be interested in booking a centre tour, please encourage them to contact our friendly Family Support Consultants on 1800 CHILDCARE.
