Book A Virtual Tour Today
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 ...
  • "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. "

  • "Papilio Early Learning are excellent. They have taken care of my son since he was 8 months old. The staff are fantastic and caring and he has thrived in his time there. It's always very reassuring to have your child excited to go into daycare and to come home with an array of new learnings each day. Very lucky to have found this place."
    - Elsie, August 2020 (Google Review)
  • "My twins went to this daycare from infant to Kinder and I could not have been more lucky to have the most caring, nurturing early learning centre to trust my children with. Maddie, their Director is an exceptional leader, with the centre staff attending to my children no matter what their needs were. I would highly recommend Papilio to those looking for a daycare provider in the St Kilda/Prahran area."
