Expansive Outdoor Environment

At this purpose-built childcare Pakenham centre, our outdoor play area connects seamlessly with our indoor rooms. Our outdoor facilities include cubby houses, veggie gardens, bike paths, sand pits, dry creek beds and a rock-climbing area, as well as three different playground areas.

We regularly run outdoor programs, ranging from environmental education to sports, which enhance the children’s cognitive and social skills. They also learn to discover new concepts and gain an understanding of environmental sustainability.

Caring, Compassionate Staff who Cater to Individual Needs

Our educators aim to build strong relationships and support the well-being of every child under our care. Our Educators hold bachelor’s degrees as a minimum and are fully qualified as Early Childhood Teachers. We take a combined approach towards teaching incorporating the Early Years Learning Framework and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. Our wish for every child is that they’re happy and engaged in their learning and develop a sense of identity and connection within our community.

Meet the Centre Manager for Pakenham

My name is Natasha, and I am the Centre Manager of Aspire Early Education and Kindergarten Pakenham. I have been with Aspire Pakenham since our opening in 2019. I am diploma qualified and have been an early childcare educator for over 9 years. My passion for early childhood education began after I became a mother to my three children. My philosophy being that the most important investment that we will ever make for our children, a high-quality education that sets the foundation for their life.

I believe that education starts at home, with you, as parents and caregivers. But as children grow, we as educators, are privileged to be able to become a part of the team that continues to care for and educate your children. It was with this passion and dedication to ensure that all children can access high quality and inclusive education, that I chose to join Aspire Early Education and Kindergarten. With a philosophy and vision that aligns with my own, I feel very privileged that I am a part of this amazing community.

What Our Families Have To Say

If you are looking for the most loving, caring and fun childcare then look no further. I would highly recommend Aspire Early Education Pakenham to care for your most precious gift. All staff are highly experienced working with children and catering for all needs. I am continually updated as to my child's activities and well-being throughout the day which put me at ease. The centre is always clean and fresh healthy cooked meals are served to our growing kids. Tash is exceptionally professional, lovely and has a very caring approach towards all the families. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.


I cannot recommend this childcare enough! I was so nervous to put my son into childcare at 4 months old but I can tell he loves it there and has learnt so much already. The childcare workers are so lovely, caring and on the ball with everything. They put so much effort into making the children’s experience fun and unique, as well as organising activities and events beyond the centre hours where parents can link up and get involved. Thank you for easing my nerves and making my son’s experience so enjoyable!!


We have been at Aspire since 2019 and couldn't fault a thing. Educators and directors are passionate, friendly and supportive. My daughter is offered a variety of activities, food and cultural experiences and has loved everyday she has spent here. The centre is clean, bright and very family orientated. Lots of updates and photos to show us what the kids are doing. Would 100% recommend to family and friends in the area


This place is so much more than a childcare Centre! Every staff in here put every effort into creating a community that nurtures and uncovers each child’s personality. The team here is a village that support the family and works together to achieve goals and milestones!! My baby girl loves coming to her bluebells room. As a first-time parent, I can confidently say that my child is in safe hand! I would highly recommend this wonderful place.
