About

WELCOME TO OUR CROYDON CHILDCARE CENTRE & KINDERGARTEN

Our wonderful childcare centre is conveniently located at 20 Croydon Road Croydon, just across the road from the Croydon Primary School with easy access to Croydon Train Station and Maroondah Highway. Our bright and fresh purpose-built childcare centre encompasses the historic Croydon church hall. This wonderful structure has been a special addition to our beautiful learning environments, thoughtfully created for the development of babies to 4-year-old kindergarten.

Our learning spaces are open, airy, bright and clean, they’re full of life and designed around children’s age specific needs and capabilities. Our beautiful adventure garden surrounds the childcare centre and is accessible from a number of rooms connecting our learning environments for the children.

The kinder garden has ample space for lots of exploring and adventures. While the babies and toddlers have their own exclusive gardens with soft textural plants, wooden story seat and toddlers’ sandpit, secret paths and a giant xylophone, which is often heard from Croydon Road chiming away with delight.

Our purpose-built Croydon Childcare Centres sets the benchmark. Don't take out word for it, see for yourself and book a no obligation tour!

My son is three years old and has been in this centre for two and a half years. The educators in this centre are care about the kids. My boy especially like Malissa who is take care of him from nursery room to toddler room. She is always very positive and professional. The management team especially Katrina provides good atmosphere for the centre.

My son has been attending Platypus Junction Croydon for 4 years now. I am extremely impressed with the staff and the education he has received throughout the years. Nothing is ever too much of an effort and all staff and management have been extremely accommodating. I would definitely recommend this centre to any parent. Thanks for looking after my boy guys!

I had heard great things about place but I was surprised why. I could see junkies all around the place. It didn’t feel anywhere safe even to pickup my kids leave aside leaving them under care. They don’t even have a security camera to keep an eye but the staff was so indifferent. Nobody on desk doors are all open. This is not to the standards that I have seen other day care centres and obviously they have more engaged and caring staff as well as they are much safer.

Staff is rude, The only good thing is they are new however with a staff like this I am sure it will not last. I wonder if there is any attention to how they treat potential parents, they are too busy to even tell you about the facilities or any other relevant information. If this is how they treat prospective clients the how they will treat the ones who are already enrolled. Shame on a closely knit community like croydon
