Quality child care in Barton helping your child reach their full potential

Papilio Early Learning Barton

Tour & Enrol
Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Preschool in Barton. We're welcoming new families to join our baby nursery, toddler program and Preschool. 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 Preschool 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 ...
  • "Completely amazing. Our 16 month old started at Papilio Barton at the end of 2021 and we couldn't be happier. The educators and centre director are incredible and genuinely caring and our baby loves his daycare days. They consistently keep you informed and proactive seek feedback to continually improve. Would highly recommend this centre."

  • "Helpful and great staff that cares for children. The center manager is very efficient, great at listening and is open to feedback for any improvements or suggestions made for the child's growth and development. The pre school program is educative and provides opportunity for the child to develop skills in many areas."
