Early Learning Caloundra

Welcome to Milestones Early Learning Caloundra, quality child care in Caloundra West 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 Caloundra, 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 Caloundra 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 Caloundra 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.

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.

Meet Our Team

Hello, I'm Jess, the Centre Manager here at Milestones Early Learning Caloundra.

I appreciate the opportunity to share my extensive experience and dedication to Early Education. My commitment to the field for the past 20 years, with nearly 11 of those years with Affinity Education Group, showcases my deep-rooted passion for nurturing young minds.

As the Center Manager at Milestones Early Learning Caloundra, my role as a leader, curriculum developer, and supporter of staff underscores my commitment to providing a safe and enriching environment for both children and educators. My commitment to leadership, curriculum development, and creating a safe and nurturing environment aligns seamlessly with my passion for advocating for children's rights, fostering positive environments, continuous learning, and building relationships. This holistic approach undoubtedly contributes to the well-rounded development of each child.

Being instrumental in a child's learning journey and witnessing their achievements is indeed a privilege that not only shapes their early years but also leaves a lasting imprint on their future. The responsibility and joy that come with guiding these young minds toward their goals is fulfillment and rewarding. I found that contributing to the learning development and achievement of goals for each child is truly heartwarming.

The positive impact I’ve had over the years shows a genuine love for my work and a deep understanding of the importance of these early educational experiences.
