Journey Early Learning Ballarat East is where your child’s journey begins. Children from ages six weeks to six years, are surrounded by stimulating learning environments and nurturing educators. It’s a place where children can make a positive start to a life of learning, development, growth and opportunity.
This centre is purpose-built and is now open. Please register your interest and join our waitlist.
Journey Early Learning Ballarat East is a warm and welcoming centre where our little explorers feel right at home. With many shared values, the transition to Journey was seamless, with many of the educators continuing on with us. Journey Lucas is the ideal place for little adventurers who have a natural sense of curiosity.
Who wouldn’t love that?
From peek-a-boo to prep, we’re here every step of the way.
School transition is a major focus, and we work hard to ensure this is a smooth process. By providing a safe and secure environment, our children develop confidence, resilience and a strong sense of self for the school journey ahead.
In order to ensure every child is prepared for school, our Kindergarten classrooms are intentionally designed by our Teachers to align with the Journey Standards and the Early Years Learning Framework and Curriculum. Our Government Approved Funded 3 and 4-Year-Old Kindergarten Classrooms are run by ACCEQA approved Early Childhood Teachers and Qualified Educators. Children enrolling in our 4-Year-Old Kinder Program are provided with ongoing support from teachers in preparation for school through our School Readiness Program.
Did you know that your child can attend Journey from 6 weeks to their first day of school?

Hi, my name is Aimee, the centre manager of Journey Early Learning Ballarat East.
I have been a part of the Early Childhood sector for 7 years and I hold a Diploma in Early Education and care.
I am passionate about the early years of childhood and strongly believe these years are highly important as each child learns and grows into who they are.
My professional goal is to provide a centre where children, families and educators feel safe, secure and supported. Creating an environment where children explore, grow and learn within to reach their full potential in life.
I understand the process of joining the early childhood learning space can be overwhelming and I take pride in supporting all families, children and educators throughout their journey within the service. I strongly believe in the importance of working in collaboration with all families and educators to ensure children’s interests and learning is being supported and extended upon.
I look forward to welcoming you into the service and showing you the beautiful learning spaces at Journey Early Learning Ballarat East.

Community activities

Interacting and connecting with the local community, ensures a bond is maintained between the children and the community, creating a sense of familiarity and belonging. It sets a rewarding scene for every child to rightfully respect their local environment.

Exploring nature-based play

Children love getting out and exploring in nature. It really is the greatest teacher. Nature based play is a core part of our curriculum. That’s because it teaches them vital life skills including confidence, independence, exploration and cooperation. Playing outside also promotes health and wellbeing and teaches them respect for the environment.
