Milestone is committed to providing our children with the highest quality child care and education. Our play based learning program provides a balance of experiences to enhance and enrich the individual child's social, emotional, physical, creative, lingual, and intellectual development. We aspire to create an environment that is warm, safe, fun and nurturing which encourages a love of learning and assists each child to reach their utmost potential. 

We had our Assessment and Rating Visit in June 2013 and can now say that we are officially Meeting the National Quality Standard. Best of all, we were rated Exceeding in three of the seven quality areas - Relationships with Children, Staffing Arrangements and Children's Health and Safety.
