Child Care & Kindergarten Wagaman

Welcome to Milestones Early Learning Wagaman, quality child care in Wagaman, Darwin for ages 0-5.

Our passionate educators and teachers are trained and accredited in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum by Affinity Education Group, Australia’s leading provider of early education and child care.

Here at Milestones Early Learning Wagaman, we pride ourselves on creating strong, positive bonds with children, and providing them with the individual care and attention that is essential in early education. We nurture a lifelong love of learning through a combination of play-based and intentional teaching experiences, which helps your child develop social connectivity, emotional confidence, foundational learning, and physical health and wellbeing.

Milestones Early Learning Wagaman has a range of inspiring environments for children to explore. Our centre rooms are set up based on the children’s current level of development and their interests. Our centre also includes a spacious outdoor play area that encourages children to test their limits, build strength, and develop self-confidence.

Our days incorporate messy play experiences, allowing children to use their natural curiosity and engage their senses. Your child will be introduced to literacy and numeracy through fun learning games, and investigate science, technology and the arts.  We also offer a range of health and wellbeing activities, and nurture a love of animals, nature and the environment.

Milestones Early Learning Wagaman provides nutritionally balanced meals cooked daily by our onsite chef, an inclusion that is unique to Affinity Education Group child care centres. All nappies are included, plus you can stay connected with your child’s progress and receive updates about their day through our Storypark platform.

We know you’re busy and that deciding on child care and early education is a huge task. We are here to help you though! Our dedicated Family Support Team is available to answer any questions you may have about our programs, services, and subsidies available to your family.

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.

Big Thinkers STEM Program

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) have always played a vital role in developing our Lifelong Learning Curriculum for children in our preschool rooms (3-5 years).   

The Lifelong Learning Curriculum - Big Thinkers STEM program is aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework, ensuring your child has a strong sense of identity through creating a safe, secure and supported learning experience. Your child will develop their emerging autonomy, interdependence, resilience, and sense of agency; through this, expand on their self-confidence by encouraging interaction with care, empathy and respect.
