Journey Early Learning Centre Thomastown 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 brand new centre is purpose built to spark curiosity and create joy. We provide a supportive environment where children can participate in a wide range of exciting play-based learning activities, including adventure gardens, a water play area and even a rock climbing wall to build their confidence. Our regular cooking classes are a particular hit with the children. We are passionate about guiding developmental outcomes and providing a creative environment for our little adventurers.

We love being part of Thomastown, and think it’s vital that our children get to explore their local neighbourhood. That’s why we take them on mini adventures to the train station, library and even our local coffee shop. Sometimes we simply take a stroll through the neighbourhood to say hello to the neighbours.

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.

“This is a brand new center. The Educators are very attentive, friendly and most of all, very focused on what they’re doing. I’m a very happy Mother at the moment.”


Hi. My name is Georgina and I have been in the early education sector for 10 years. I am a longstanding member of the Journey family, having previously been the Centre Manager at Camelot. Journey’s values of connection, consideration and communication have always resonated with me, and I look forward to bringing these values to life at Journey Thomastown.

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.
