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

Papilio Early Learning Yarralumla

Tour & Enrol
Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Preschool in Yarralumla. 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
