Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in St Kilda. 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 ...
  • "Audrina was a shy girl with little English skill when joined Papilio. At the end, she came back a confident girl and developed a passion for hand bag design. We thank Maddy and all other educators that helped her to get a head start at school. She can confidently read the books and adapted to the programs due to her prior learning at Papilio."

  • "We couldn't have wished for a more nurturing childcare centre for our son. The educators are kind, warm, incredibly competent and go out of their way to make every child feel welcome. The program is comprehensive and educational but not too structured - which we like! Children undertake a range of fun activities every day - music lessons, yoga, art work, dress up days, gardening and cooking. The management and communication is excellent."
