About

Welcome to Milestones Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in The Lakes. We're welcoming new families to join our baby nursery, toddler 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.

  • Play based approach - the centre uses a play-based approach which encourages emotional, social and physical growth. Play is a way that children interact with the world around them, helping them develop social skills they’ll use everyday to interact and communicate with others.
  • School readiness program - this program encourages the development of your child’s mind, body, and connection to the people and places in the world around them. The centre offers state-approved early learning curriculums as part of their School Readiness approach. 
  • Incursions and excursions - a range of incursions and excursions are offered to keep your little one engaged and interested in all sorts of topics. From fitness and health, animals and nature and the larger community.
  • Range of activities - the centre's Healthy Children enrichment programs include music, dance, art, sport, games, cooking and gardening. Educators strive to make each day interesting, different and most importantly fun for your child. 
  • Sustainability focus - as a part of the centre's Healthy World focus they prioritise a sustainable approach. Children explore conservation, social responsibility and the environment through activities whether that be through gardening, recycling projects, environmental days or recycling stations.

What a great centre. Since my child has been going there I have had nothing but a bundle of joy when I pick her up. She wants to tell me about her day and all the fun things she has done. Thank you so much.

Could not ask for a better center to care for my two children. The staff are extremely welcoming, lovely and happy. Both my children have formed bonds with their room educators as well as all the other educators. The management team is wonderful to deal with. Highly recommend to anyone.

I will start talking about the Centre Director, Servio Castillo, is the most hard worker and passionate person in the centre. His overall planning, administration, marketing and resourcing are a few of his daily duties. He also focus on parent discussions, positives relationship with families, staff members, students and children. I highly recommended this place for develop you child skills.

My stepson loves going here. When he comes home he talk about everything he has done and who his "bestest teachers" are. He has learnt alot since attending and is always excited at drop off.

Milestones The Lakes, is the most underrated childcare centre in Townsville. Genuine, attentive, caring workers with an amazing director at the moment. I have had two of my children there and have been extremely impressed with the care towards my children. Could not recommend enough!!!
