Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in Blackburn. We're welcoming new families to join our Baby Nursery, Toddler Program and Kindergarten. You're invited to visit for a free stay and play date or family tour today!

Your child's lifelong learning journey starts here! Our approach begins with a focus on baby sensory play and building secure attachments so our littlest learners develop the confidence they need to explore.

This is followed by exciting play-based toddler programs featuring opportunities to develop literacy, numeracy, and early socialisation skills. Children aged from 3-years old can join our Kindergarten programs, developing the school readiness skills they need to thrive in Primary School.

"Research shows the first five years of your child's life are the most important. Our lifelong learning approach will support your child to develop emotionally, socially, physically and academically, no matter what age they begin with us, to ensure they develop a lifelong love of learning. Together, we can help your child reach their full potential." Dr Lesley Jones

What our families say about us ...
  • "My son has attended here for a few years now. He is very happy here. The standout feature is that the staff really love the children. This is clear from how the children are cared for, as well as how activities and environments are addressed to the children's development. "
    - Robert, September 2021 (Google Review)
  • "I found this centre as my family member has recommended with good feedback. I send both of my children and have experience my children are happy at care so far. I am thankful for the kindness of the staff and the bright and positive energy I get from the educators. We are glad to have Kay who is Korean who can help my children with Korean language when needed. We've been to other centres and this centre is number 1 on our list so far. I would recommend this centre to my family and friends."

  • "I highly recommend Papilio Blackburn. This centre is truly invested in making sure every child thrives. The educators understand that building attachments with children is the key to helping them feel safe and secure and this ensured our daughter settled into the nursery room much quicker than we anticipated. You (and your child/ren) see the same faces every day which definitely helps when transitioning to a new environment."
