Journey Early Learning Delacombe is where your child’s journey begins. Opened in January 2022, our amazing childcare centre in Ballarat provides 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.

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?

My name is Beth and am the Centre Manager at Journey Early Learning Delacombe.

I joined Journey Early Learning at the start of 2021 and I have had the amazing opportunity to watch the building grow from a development site to a beautiful purpose built Early Learning Centre.

I hold a diploma in Children’s Services and have worked in Early Childhood sector for over 20 years. I am passionate about working with families, children and educators to create a community where everyone feels welcome, supported and valued.

As the Centre Manager of Journey Early Learning Delacombe, I look forward to meeting you and your family and having the opportunity to show you around 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.
