Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in Box Hill. 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 been in daycare since 9.5 months. The educators were very patient and understanding with him as he wasn't use to strangers (born in a lockdown). Now he is 17 months and thriving. He always looks so happy and has made some beautiful friendships with his peers. Any questions or problems I had were responded to quickly. They know my son very well, they know if a change is needed (from 2 to 1 nap) or when he seems unwell. They ask always me first before making a change."

  • "My daughter went to the other child care before, but when We dropped her off or picked her up, she always looks so nervous, scared and upset,also she got sick very often. Then we decided to canceled previous one and looking for the new child care near our home. On the tour day we can felt all the children are so happy and active, the educators are passionate and patient.

  • "We have had 5 wonderful years at this centre with our two children. The educators have been incredible with them. From the first day I did a tour, I just knew from the warmth of the educators (their genuine warmth & friendliness and knowing each child's name) and the happiness of the children playing there, that this was the right choice for us."
