Journey Early Learning Dakabin 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?

Hello and welcome to Journey Dakabin! My name is Sue and as the Centre Manager, I look forward to showing you through our inspiring playspaces and introducing you to the team.
I have worked in the Early Childhood Sector for 13 years and hold my Diploma in Children’s Services. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work closely with every age group within many different roles. My passion for early childhood is evident through my philosophy and my teaching beliefs of; attachments, relationships with children, and seeing children as competent and capable in their world around them.
I believe working in partnership with families helps to support children reach their full potential and so we always aim to ensure families feel valued, respected and at home at Journey Dakabin.
The Journey Early
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.
