Journey Early Learning Centre Whittlesea 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 Whittlesea 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. We have a recently renovated outdoor play space with a large sandpit, fort and a bike track that wraps all the way around it. We also have native gardens, rock beds, wooden bridges and a brand new edible garden maintained by our little explorers and educators. We even have an undercover stage where we run our mindfulness yoga Mondays. We can often be seen venturing out and about, connecting with a variety of local community services and exploring our natural environment through Bush Kinder.
We feel it’s important to inspire our little adventurers and prepare them for school, so we run a school readiness program with St Mary’s, a local school here in Whittlesea. We also run a sustainability project with St Mary’s, who assist us with the planting and growing of our own gardens. Our centre is proud to be part of the Whittlesea community and participates regularly in local fetes and markets.

Welcome to Journey – my name is Ruby, and I am the Centre Manager.
With a background in marketing and business management, it was becoming a mother that sparked my passion to join early childhood education and care.
For the past 2 years I have been a part of Journey Whittlesea and loved getting to know the families, children, and community.
At Journey Whittlesea we provide a welcoming, safe, and warm environment where all children and families are supported and valued. As a service the connection we create with each child and their families is important as we appreciate open and honest communication and involvement.
Our team is respectful, passionate, and dedicated to interacting in a positive and meaningful way with all children and each other. It’s the high quality of education and commitment that allows us to build strong relationships and support children in their well-being, to build resilience and enhance learning capabilities.
It’s the joy in supporting children, watching them learn, grow and having a positive impact in their lives that drives us to continue the path to exceeding.
I look forward to meeting and welcoming you into our beautiful 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.
