Quality Education and Care for Your Child

Catering to children from 6 weeks to 6 years old, our Pakenham early learning centre is ideal for parents looking for a long-term childcare solution. Our carers take the time to build strong relationships with every child, helping to foster a lifelong love of learning that begins in early childhood.

Progressing from the nursery through to our kindergarten program, your child will experience a rich, play-based education that allows them to learn at their own pace whilst engaging positively with other children. Our Pakenham centre is warm and inviting, featuring white walls with plenty of glass windows, dedicated learning areas and room for every child to explore.

We recognise the role of the family in a child’s education, and we operate in a community minded manner. We are always open for consultation and feedback, as we believe that constructive feedback is key to creating an educational environment in which every child feels comfortable.

Expansive, Secure Outdoor Environment

It is important for children to engage with the outdoors as much as possible, and at Pakenham child care centre it couldn’t be easier. Connecting seamlessly with our indoor rooms, our outdoor play area is ideal for both play and engaging, structured activities. With soft green lawns, architecturally designed elements and secure locked gates children can explore to their hearts content.

There are three different playgrounds available, each suited to a different age group. This helps to support positive peer bonding and ensure that play equipment is age appropriate. Children are free to explore a range of environments including cubby houses, veggie gardens, bike paths, swing sets, sand pits, dry creek beds and even a rock-climbing area.

Aspire staff always keep a close eye on children as they children interact with peers, explore new environments and discover new concepts. We also encourage a sense of environmental responsibility and respect for the natural world within children, helping to pave the way for greener futures.

Convenient Melbourne Location

Our Pakenham centre is easily accessible for parents of all ages, being located right next door to Pakenham station. There is no shortage of facilities in Pakenham, with public transport, schools, shops and greenspace within walking distance it is a great place to raise a child.

Children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age are welcome at our Pakenham centre, as we have both a Nursery and Kindergarten Program.  Whether you’re planning to enrol for a short period of time or for the long haul, your child will always feel a part of the community and enjoy positive interactions with children of a similar age.

We regularly invite community leaders into our facility to educate children and enhance our education program. Visitors include members of the local fire brigade, police service, environmental groups and more.

Caring, Compassionate Staff who Cater to Individual Needs

It is important that every child feels comfortable at our Pakenham early learning centre. Our educators aim to build strong relationships with all children and are dedicated to ensuring the wellbeing of every child under our care. We recognise that no two children are ever alike, and we are more than willing to cater to individual needs.

We take the time to listen to any special requests you may have as a parent, as this enables us to provide the best possible care and education for your child. It is the collaborative approach between educators and parents which has allowed us to become the leading Pakenham child care centre.

Educators within our Kindergarten Educational Program hold bachelor’s degrees as a minimum and are fully qualified as Early Childhood Teachers. We take a combined approach towards teaching which involves both the Early Years Learning Framework and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

Our wish is for every child to be a happy and engaged learner. During their time at Aspire Pakenham, they will develop a sense of identity, feeling of connection and a sense that they are contributing within our community. This will make the transition into school years much easier, as they will have highly developed communication and learning skills – two of the most necessary skills for the modern world.
