Journey Early Learning Centre Burwood is where your child’s journey begins. We provide a nurturing environment filled with curiosity, wonder and joy. It’s a place where children aged from six weeks to six years of age can make a positive start to a life of learning, development, growth and opportunity. Our centre is purpose-built and is located opposite St Scholastica’s Catholic Primary School, just off the Burwood Highway on Starling Street.

One of Journey’s core values is providing a safe and welcoming environment where everyone feels at home. And that’s exactly what we provide here at Journey Burwood. With over 30 different ethnicities represented, Journey Burwood is a culturally diverse centre and the perfect place for your child to embark on their magnificent journey.

Everyone loves our Burwood centre which includes two large, covered play spaces and a water play area. Our outdoor wonderland means our little adventurers can get messy, dig in the dirt and play amongst the gardens; while our big open rooms are filled with resources to spark our children’s natural curiosity and encourage play-based learning. We are proud to provide a safe and magical learning experience for your little explorer.

We’ve designed a helpful Child Care Subsidy estimator so you can discover more about your government entitlements. Need help? We’re here to chat, just book an appointment below.

“Friendly and very good staff and educators. Most importantly, my child is very happy at pick-up and drop-off and brings her bag to go to the centre when it is not her day.”


Welcome to Journey Early Learning Burwood. My name is Rachel and I am the Centre Manager of our state-of-the-art Burwood Centre. I have been an early childhood Centre Manager for 6 years and have worked in the sector for 14 years. I am a mother of a 4 year old girl who has been a part of the Journey family since she was 8 months old. My vision is driven by each and every child’s voice, parent participation, and a strong connection to our community’s values.
​I am committed to providing a personalised experience for all families and children from the moment they arrive at our centre, until they leave. ​I look forward to meeting you and showing you through our wonderful centre!

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.
