Aspire Pakenham Childcare Centre

Our Aspire Pakenham childcare centre is ideal for parents looking for a long-term childcare solution. We are situated in a great location close to Pakenham train station, Pakenham Central Marketplace, and various local parks and reserves.

Progressing from the Nursery through to our 3- & 4-year-old Kindergarten programs, our Pakenham centre has 7 spacious learning rooms specifically designed for each age group and development. This allows them to learn at their own pace, whilst engaging with their peers and building the necessary social skills to help with their transition to school.

Our Aspire Pakenham centre offers educational and fun incursion programs for the children on a fortnightly basis. We offer a sports incursion program by Little Sports Heroes, a creative arts program by Denver at SketchRoo, and a Yoga program by Abby’s Yoga. These incursions offer educational experiences and fun learning opportunities for the children to enhance their social, emotional, creative, and physical skills.

We also love the opportunity to bring our Aspire community together with the local community.  At Pakenham, we run excursion programs for the children to the local park and playground, as well as the local retirement village, Pakenham library and supermarket. We also run external events throughout the year for families and the Pakenham community that feature different activities and experiences. This creates a sense of belonging and community engagement for our Aspire families and the wider community.

Expansive Outdoor Environment

At our purpose-built Pakenham childcare centre, our outdoor play area connects seamlessly with our indoor rooms. Our indoor spaces provide a range of learning including sensory play, letter and colour recognition activities, painting and craft fun, storytelling, cooking experiences and more.

Our outdoor facilities include a cubby house, veggie gardens, bike paths, sand pits, dry creek beds, a rock-climbing area, and three different playground areas. We regularly run outdoor programs, ranging from environmental education to sport programs and activities. These aim to enhance the children’s cognitive and social skills, whilst gaining an understanding of environmental sustainability through different activities.

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.

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.
