Journey Early Learning Centre Wallan 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 early learning and child care centre is conveniently located just off the Northern Highway in Wellington Street, providing childcare services to Wallan and surrounding areas.
Journey Wallan is a warm and welcoming centre, designed around your little explorer and play-based learning. We have large spacious rooms filled with amazing resources. Our patio leads onto our large outdoor play space that has just been renovated. We have a bike track that runs through the middle, complete with water misters. We also have a massive fort with it’s own slide, all surrounded by native gardens. It really is the perfect space for little adventurers.
Wallan is a small town, but the community plays a big role. That’s why we invite organisations like Wallan Fruit and Veg, FES (Fire Equipment Service) and the Police over to our centre on a regular basis. Our little adventurers really look forward to these interactive learning experiences. One of their other favourites is Kindy Groove, a music and dance learning program. We also run regular date nights and family breakfasts inspired by Wholesome Child.
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.
“Amy, Larissa and Sarah were so supportive when transitioning Ella into care. It took Ella a while to settle, but the girls were amazing in looking after Ella and encouraging us as parents that things would get better. Great team!”
Hi, my name is Brooke and I began in the early childhood Industry in 2008. I have worked in many different roles across the sector, including Room Leader, Educational Leader, Assistant Centre Manager and now I’m the Centre Manager at Journey Wallan.
I currently hold a Diploma in Children’s Services, and I am working towards my Advanced Diploma in Children’s Services. I started working for Journey in October 2018 and have enjoyed every moment. My goal is to bring Journey’s values and our centre vision to life throughout the centre. I look forward to meeting you and showing you through 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.
