Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in Camberwell.  We’re welcoming new families to join our baby nurserytoddler program and Kindergarten. You’re invited to visit for a free stay and play date or family tour today! 

Your child’s lifelong learning journey starts here! Our approach begins with a focus on baby sensory play and building secure attachments so our littlest learners develop the confidence they need to explore.

This is followed by exciting play-based toddler programs featuring opportunities to develop literacy, numeracy, and early socialisation skills. Children aged from 3-years old can join our Kindergarten programs, developing the school readiness skills they need to thrive in Primary School.

“Research shows the first five years of your child’s life are the most important. Our lifelong learning approach will support your child to develop emotionally, socially, physically and academically, no matter what age they begin with us, to ensure they develop a lifelong love of learning. Together, we can help your child reach their full potential.” Dr Lesley Jones

What our families say about us ...
  • "I have been using A Step Ahead Camberwell for over three years. The facilities and location are great. The Educators are very caring and attentive and both my kids love all the many activities that are regularly scheduled. I highly recommend!"
    - Kim Jones, July 2019 (Google Review)
  • "We’ve attended for 3 years now and the centre keeps getting better and better. My son loves the regular incursions (especially sports and yoga) and the special events, but more importantly has developed amazing relationships with his educators. Everyone, not only his educators knows us (including my little bub not yet attending) and it’s a lovely, welcoming vibe :)"
