Aspire Platform, Donnybrook Childcare Centre

Our centre is located on Donnybrook Road at the gateway to the Platform Estate Donnybrook. We are conveniently located close to the railway station, local primary school, as well as parks and conservation areas. Our Platform Donnybrook centre has 8 spacious rooms that support children through their entire learning journey, catering for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years old. Our service is a state-of-the-art facility with beautiful indoor and outdoor environments for children to learn and grow in.

With a homely vibe and plenty of room to explore, children will thrive within our play-based programs. We believe that every child deserves a quality education, and that their individual talents deserve to be recognised. We strive to help nurture and cultivate children’s sense of identity, belonging and self confidence that will ease the transition into school and allow them to flourish in life.

We love the opportunity to bring our Aspire community together with our local community, to celebrate the diversity of our children and families to create a sense of belonging for everyone.  By understanding children in the context of their families and community, we can provide meaningful and purposeful opportunities and experiences that relate to their world.

Tailored to Your Child’s Needs

Aspire Donnybrook centre is staffed by a team of experienced and fully qualified educators, who are committed to providing the best possible care for every child. We work in close collaboration with families, ensuring that any additional requests are accommodated for. Our Kindergarten educational program has been designed from the ground up by an experienced, qualified early childhood teacher. Our program takes elements from the Early Years Learning Framework and combines them with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework to create a curriculum that offers every child the opportunity to succeed.

Meet the Centre Manager for Platform, Donnybrook

Hello, my name is Neeru. I embarked on my professional journey as a fully registered Teacher. Dedicated to education, I refined my skills through various educational institutions before making a pivotal shift in my career. After having my second child, I felt a calling towards early childhood education, leading me to establish my own Family Daycare for five years. In 2018, I decided to transition into the role of Assistant Educator. This marked the beginning of a new and exciting phase in my career, where I could pursue my passion for childcare and education. Over the past 15 years, I have dedicated myself to the field of children's services, gaining valuable experience and taking on leadership roles to ensure the needs of both children and educators are met.

I've been on a continuous journey to enhance my skills and knowledge, always striving to better myself. For me, my workplace is more than just a job—it's a home away from home. I believe in leading by example and fostering an environment where every individual is valued and empowered. Above all, my unwavering love for children fuels my commitment to nurturing them into compassionate and responsible citizens.

What Our Families Have To Say

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


Highly recommended Aspire Thornhill park. Staff and management is awesome. I can see so much learning happening everyday basis. I feel proud to choose Aspire Thornhillpark as another home for my children where they feel so safe secure and comfortable.


I cannot praise Aspire more highly. We transferred following a rough patch with our original daycare from the same area. They’re amazing when it comes to managing food allergies and still feeding the kids nutritious and filling meals. No slip ups and we have zero concerns about leaving our daughter with them full time. Their educational curriculum is also well thought out - Mandarin lessons, yoga, excursions, art, counting.,.and this is at toddler level! Our daughter comes home each day fulfilled and tired and happy and stimulated from all the learning. Excellent communication from staff to parents too. Worth it in every respect!


My son is having great time at child care. Even on weekends he wakes up early and wants to go to Childcare and play with his friends. Have observed a big difference in his behaviour and is more independent than before. Thank you Aspire Thornhill park team for taking good care of my child.
