Piptree Early Learning

Our Philosophy

When you join your local Piptree, you’re joining a family. We believe that early learning and development extends far beyond the walls of our buildings. That’s why we take great care to build strong and positive relationships with our families and our wider communities. By working together, your child can begin to blossom.
Our child-centered development programs are based on the government-approved Early Years Learning Framework: Belonging, Being and Becoming. We balance child-led play with structured, age-appropriate learning to give each child the right support to develop at their own pace.
Piptree is proud to be a family-owned Brisbane business. Our environments are purpose-built to ensure children have the optimum space, stimulation and security to actively engage in a wide variety of learning experiences. We nurture and encourage our children to participate and explore, and to extend their full range of skills in preparation for Prep.

Early Education For Our Seedlings

0-2 years

In this age group, we’re strongly guided by each family’s individual routine. We’ll ask you all about your tiny pip’s sleeping and feeding schedule and any other patterns that influence their day. We’ll follow your routine as closely as possible to ensure consistency – and a happy child!

15 months-2 years

Our rooms are full of stimulating, age-appropriate toys and equipment and there is a separate covered outdoor play area. A comprehensive daily communication sheet is displayed in the room, detailing all the important information about your child’s day.

2-3 years

Every child’s developmental needs are carefully observed and assessed and then incorporated into our programs. We constantly look for opportunities to extend on your child’s interests and enhance their abilities across all aspects of early learning.

3-4 years

Our 3 – 4 year old children are busy developing the skills they’ll need when they begin Prep. Our Approved Kindergarten Program enables our children to develop their confidence and abilities while still having lots of fun! Through ongoing observations our Educators create programs that cater for each child’s developmental needs and interests.

4-5 years

We offer an enriching variety of planned learning experiences, indoor and outdoor activities as well as informal, child-lead play opportunities. These rooms still follow a routine but we adapt this to cater to the children’s needs on the day. Children are encouraged to develop their learning to meet set outcomes and to challenge themselves to become successful in learning and in life.

What our families say about us

Thank you for warmth and kindness

From the moment I walked through the doors the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Staff are kind, thoughtful, energetic and professional. They have a genuine care and respect for the children. I found the centre to be well up to date with their use of technology and security and was extra impressed with the Centre's cleanliness and professionalism. The chef makes lovely food and I can see my baby really enjoying eating everything in sight. I love and look forward to receiving my baby’s daily updates on their app. The Centre has incredible outdoor spaces including for young babies. I like that the babies can mix with the older children in different areas of the Centre. As a first time mum to an 8-month girl, I trust that my baby is safe and in good hands. I cannot recommend the Centre highly enough.
