Journey Early Learning Lucas 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.
Journey Early Learning Lucas 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?
We’ve designed a helpful Child Care Subsidy calculator so you can discover more about your government entitlements. Need help? We’re here to chat, just book an appointment below.
Hi, my name is Maggie and I am the Centre Manager at Journey Early Learning Lucas.
I have been a part of the Early Childhood sector for the past 7 years and hold my Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.
I have had many opportunities developing my skills throughout working with Journey. Starting as an assistant educator and working my way up to a Lead educator, Educational Leader and now a Centre Manager!
I love building strong relationships with children and families, ensuring they feel safe, secure and supported in their learning environment.
I am very passionate about educating children with a high level of care.
I’m looking forward to meeting you and your family and welcoming you into our centre!
“Journey Early Learning Lucas is completely committed to providing high quality care to the children.”

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.
