Welcome to Milestone Child Care & Kindergarten
Providing Quality Early Childhood Education in Croydon
Milestone Child Care & Kindergarten is a purpose built early childhood centre and kindergarten located in Croydon, Victoria. We are a privately owned centre which caters for 120 children daily, aged from 6 weeks to 6 years. Milestone was established in 2010 but our centre has been a part of the Croydon community since 1995.
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 all aspects of a child's 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 second Assessment and Rating Visit in February 2018 and are officially Exceeding the National Quality Standard.

We have 3 special friends here at the centre. Their names are Charlie, Geoffrey and Lenny and they are our Milestone giraffe mascots! They are here to share special moments with us. Charlie is our biggest giraffe. He lives at the centre and participates in centre activities & generally keeps an eye on us all. Geoffrey and Lenny are our travel buddies. They are available for families and educators to borrow for adventures and trips.
We are enrolled in the Achievement Program which is a whole service approach to creating healthy places for working, learning and living. We've implemented a Wellbeing Team to manage the requirements of this program. Our centre has been recognised in the 3 health priority areas of Mental Health and Wellbeing, Sun Protection & Tobacco, Alcohol & Other Drugs. Did you know that we were the first health promoting service to receive recognition in the whole shire of Maroondah?
