At The Learning Sanctuary Pakenham, our long-serving educators have a proven track record of providing children with the confidence to learn and grow in an early education setting.
Why choose our centre?
- Our strong learning curriculum is guided by the national Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and provided for children from nursery through to kindergarten age.
- Our centre is purpose-built to maximise your child’s learning and development, and our natural outdoor environment engages children in play-based exploration and adventure. Our outdoor facilities include a bicycle course, a cubby house, sandpits and vegetable gardens.
- We offer the latest natural and tech-based early learning resources, including open-ended wooden toys to inspire imaginative play and SMART Board Interactive Whiteboards.

- Toddlers at our centre receive age-appropriate learning that encourages self-confidence and spontaneity. Children are provided with experiences that help them explore literacy and numeracy in a fun way and help them build relationships with their peers.
- We offer special extras you won’t get at other day care centres, such as sleep consultant seminars for parents and a Kinder graduation ceremony.

- You’ll also be able to manage your child’s bookings within our centre on our KindyNow app.

Listen to what our families say about The Learning Sanctuary:
Meet the centre manager – Rachael Scott
I hold a Diploma of Community Services and I’ve been working in child care since 2003.
I’m extremely passionate about my centre as I’ve been working here for 12 years. I love meeting new families and providing children with safe and nurturing spaces to grow and develop.
I’m proud of my educators and the quality of care we provide to our families. We have very minimal staff turnover which I believe is a great asset to our service assisting our children and families in their ability to settle into their new environment. We have many educators who have been here for close to 10 years. They always put the children’s needs first, embracing their individuality and providing a very high level of care.
I welcome you to come and witness our team’s dedication and care for yourself and your children.
