About Us

Starfish Early Learning Centres are privately owned and are a relatively new child care facility that has been built to cater for children from 6-weeks old to 5 years old. 

There are five Starfish Early Learning Centres operating around Melbourne now and each building has been specifically designed by our architect and interior designer to provide a warm and secure environment for all of the children. The design of the facility has also taken the different age groups and developmental stages of the children into consideration.
In each Starfish Centre, there are six learning spaces for the children and two outdoor areas. Each room has access to lockers, children’s bathrooms, nappy change benches, a storeroom and the outdoor area. The spaces that primarily cater for children up to two years old have access to its own food preparation area including a refrigerator and microwave.

Our Centre is open for 50 weeks of the year, except for public holidays and closed for two weeks during the Christmas and New Year’s period (families will be provided with notice prior to this closure). We are open between the hours of 7am and 6:00pm Monday to Friday.

Our Centre is licensed with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and we abide with the “Education and Care Services Act 2010” and the “Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011”. We have been accredited by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority.
