Meals Prepared Onsite

Each day our Papilio centre cooks prepare a wide variety of nutritious meals and purees onsite for the children and babies in our centres, taking the time to involve the children in meal preparation and healthy food education.

Creativity is essential when satisfying a number of young food critics every day, as is care, to ensure children's daily nutritional needs, and any individual cultural or dietary requirements are being met.

Note: A small number of our centres do not provide meals. The Centre Manager will let you know when you meet the team prior to enrolment though.

Outdoor Play Area

Each Papilio Early Learning Centre features an exciting outdoor play area for children to explore, build confidence, and develop friendships.

Outdoor play is an essential experience for young children as it plays a vital role in their physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.

The outdoor play area is different at each Papilio centre, but all include a large playground, sandpit and space to run, jump, balance and climb.

Big Thinkers STEM Program

Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) has always played a vital role in the development of our Lifelong Learning Curriculum for children in our preschool rooms (3-5 years*).   

The Lifelong Learning Curriculum - Big Thinkers STEM program is aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework, ensuring:  

Your child has a strong sense of identity - Through creating a safe secure and supported learning experience, your child will develop their emerging autonomy, inter-dependence, resilience, and sense of agency; through this, developing on their self-confidence with encouraging interaction with care, empathy and respect.
