At Piptree, our ultimate objective is to assist in developing children into life-long learners who are equipped with the skills and motivation to teach themselves as they develop. Children thrive in our fun, positive and stimulating environment because we nurture them along a journey of care and learning. The personal relationships we build with our families is so important to us – it’s what makes Piptree Eight Mile Plains such a wonderful place to be.
Opening Hours 6:15am – 6:15pm Monday to Friday all year round. Closed on public holidays.
“Each day my children come home with something new. A new song or knowledge about earth, new artwork!!”

Our Early Learning Program and the Eight Mile Plains Community
Piptree Eight Mile Plains cares greatly for our local community. It’s what makes this part of Brisbane so special. We’re always looking for ways to actively engage with local businesses and charities, and get involved in local events. By contributing and celebrating together, we make our community even better!
We proudly support the Opal Joyce Wilding Hostel every year at Mothers Day. Our beautiful pips create a gift for their mum or special person, and also bring along a gift that we can donate to the people staying at the Hostel. A lovely way to foster community spirit and brighten someone’s day.
We are strongly involved with the local TAFE. If our new families have recently arrived from overseas, we help them find out about and undertake adult migrant English programs at TAFE. We also have a TAFE student with us each term to help them gain early learning experience while they study.
The Zen Little Yogis Kids’ Yoga program guide children to being calm, courageous and kind. This quality heartfelt yoga includes stretches and exercises, fun games, relaxation and breathing techniques to create a calm mindset, and activities that increase self-awareness and boost confidence.
Our Piptree is closely connected with local state and private schools in the vicinity. We provide information on open days and can help you find out about the options available to your child once they graduate from Piptree!
What Our Families say about Piptree Eight Mile Plains
I have had both of my kids through this Centre. The staff treat your kids like their own, nothing is ever too much and it’s always clean and tidy and there were always lovely smells coming from the kitchen. There was never a question of where my son would attend when it came time. He… loves his educators, every day is varied with activities and he leaves smiling each and every day. This Centre was the best decision I ever made! Read more “This Centre was the best decision I ever made”
My 2 boys (2.5 & 8 months) attend this centre and absolutely love it! There is always plenty of new activities everyday providing different experiences & lots of outdoor play. I have found the staff to be very patient and great at comforting the kids if needed. My niece also attends & it’s lovely that… the teachers let all 3 kids visit each other throughout the day. I feel it is a safe & secure place so I don’t worry about the boys while I’m working. Read more “Love it”
Both our girls love Piptree and we’re so grateful to know they’re in the best of hands while we’re at work. All the Piptree staff are amazing and incredibly giving of themselves. You can tell by the way they interact with such care and kindness with all of the kids, and the effort they go… to in keeping activities fun, interesting and challenging. They also organise regular events to give parents and other family members a chance to feel part of the bigger centre family. Oh, and I love all the gardening and worm farm too!

Thankyou you very much for teaching Austin this year. He has shown considerable improvement in his reading and writing and I know he will be using these skills at school next year.

Farida and Family
It is going to be a sad day as we’ve been with the centre for 5 years now and the boys have really enjoyed it and felt very comfortable there. We’ve found the staff to be fantastic and we’ve never had any issues with the centre in all that time. We are all going to… miss the service. Read more “Been with the centre for 5 years”
