Journey Early Learning Epsom is where your child’s journey begins. Recently transitioned from Country Buddies Bendigo, we continue to 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.

Journey Epsom is a warm and homely early learning centre that inspires adventure and joy. The centre is designed around your little explorer and play-based learning. That means getting messy, digging in the dirt and playing in amongst the gardens. Our play spaces inspire children to work together with their friends to conquer milestones with confidence. We encourage our children to test their boundaries, while helping them to achieve different outcomes.

We focus on instilling a sense of community and supporting our little people to be connected to the world around them. We do this through the creation of stimulating, nature-inspired play and learning spaces, with a focus on developing close and respectful relationships.

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.

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.
