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 ...
  • "We've been at the centre for three years now. Excellent management, and a few of my daughter's educators have surpassed expectations. The kinder program is fantastic, and the kinder leader is caring, strict and personally attentive, and adapts/extends learning activities for individual children. I can confidently recommend the centre :)"

  • "Papilio in St Kilda is a wonderful child care centre. The staff are utterly wonderful and good communicators, and as our daughter has grown they’ve increasingly become more attentive to her education groundwork and have began preparing her for prep. We’re very close to the staff and it will be so sad to say farewell next year."
    - Mike, October 2020 (Google Review)
  • "Couldn’t be happier with the care and education my boys receive from Papilio St Kilda. The staff are warm and so kind to the children. The management team have been supportive and flexible particularly with the challenges of 2020. Would highly recommend to any parent embarking on the daycare journey."
