Platypus Junction Croydon Childcare & Kindergarten

Welcome to our Croydon Childcare Centre & Kindergarten

Our new Platypus Junction childcare in Croydon is conveniently situated on Croydon Road, just across the road from Croydon Primary School with easy access to Croydon Train Station and Maroondah Highway.

Our purpose-built early learning centre has been designed to trigger imagination and engage curious minds to support the development of babies to 4-year-old kindergarten. Our learning spaces are open, airy, bright and clean; they’re full of life and designed around children’s development to enable the perfect preparation for school. The Croydon childcare centre houses a welcome area, kitchen and six separate age grouped rooms within and around a beautifully refurbished, heritage hall.

Nursery Care
The Nursery Care area caters to children under 12 months of age. The calm and colourful babies’ nursery focuses on developing sensory play and discovery. Our programs focus on sensory development and discovery as our youngest of learners explore the environment and connect to the world.

Toddler Care
The Toddler Care area is built for children from 12 months to 3 years in age. The toddler room contains plenty of spaces to explore and have fun! Children are encouraged to develop their play and social skills here. The toddlers’ rooms have their own exclusive garden with sandpit, secret paths and a giant xylophone.

Kindergarten Program
Platypus Junction at Croydon offers 3-year-old and 4-year-old Kindergarten Programmes. The kindergarten is complete with art spaces, music areas, active learning spaces and quiet zones for exploring their language and quiet play. Children develop a love of learning by engaging in exciting and varied activities such as singing and dancing, craft activities, reading stories together, trying new things and investigating areas of interest.

A fantastic botanical adventure garden designed by the leading early learning playground designer, Ruth Czermak of Botanical Traditions is accessible from a number of rooms.
