Take a Tour
Mill Park Heights Childcare Centre is situated next to Mill Park Leisure Centre on Morang Drive and located close to Mill Park Primary School, Stables Shopping Centre and Westfield Plenty Valley.
Our curriculum has been built to reflect both the National Quality Framework and the Victoria Early Years Learning Frameworks. We aim to create a welcoming, warm and loving environment, allowing the children to feel comfortable and eager to learn and grow. Our educators create an environment where children will feel a sense of belonging and enable them to become their best self.
Mill Park Heights Childcare Centre has 5 rooms offering long day care and integrated kindergarten* catering for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years old.
Our newly renovated yard provides a large thriving educational hub for the children to enjoy. Included in the design of the new yard were the children and educators who helped to ensure the outdoor environment promotes the health, both psychologically and physically of each child. This was achieved by focusing on the key outcome areas of safety, warmth and care, connection and community whilst acknowledging the traditional owners of the land.
The vibrant area includes a sandpit, cubby house, outdoor chalk board, miniature road, water play, age appropriate play equipment, a yarning circle for story time and Acknowledgement to Country and our very own veggie patch where we teach children about the importance of sustainability and the environment.
Our children become connected to the community around MPHCC. Educators lead groups in community walks which provides the opportunity for them to talk about what they see and learn about the world around us. We also offer Bush Kinder where the children and educators walk to our local park area and learn through using the natural environment to create. Our centre visits our local Woolworths and the children can learn about our local produce, the cost and value of the groceries we purchase and learn all about healthy eating.
We use Storypark to help record your child’s development and share information about upcoming events and happenings at the centre. The Storypark platform allows us to deepen relationships between educators, families and children by creating an open line of communication. Parents are also welcome to check in with our educators at drop off and pick up times if they have any questions or just want to chat!
We provide nutritious meals which are prepared on site to make sure our children have plenty of energy to learn and play. Some of the usual favourites are Pasta Bolognese, Shepherd’s Pie and Tuna Pasta Bake. The children love our hearty soups in the winter such as Chicken & Vegetable, Thai Sweet Potato and Potato & Leek. Sometimes we get a bit adventurous with dishes like Butter Chicken and Fish & Potato Curry!
*Children who attend our integrated Kindergarten program are required to attend a minimum of two days, to ensure they receive the required 15 hours of a Kindergarten program.

With works valued at $254,000 we can’t thank The Y Whittlesea and the Victorian Government enough for their support and funding.

What We Offer
See what our families have to say about Mill Park Heights Childcare Centre & Kindergarten.
I have two children at Mill Park Heights Childcare and could not be happier! From the homely feel to the amazing educators. They all always greet you with a smile and my kids love it there. When they ask to go every day and miss the educators on the weekends you know you are onto a good thing.
We’ve come to this centre from a newly built larger centre and couldn’t be happier with the decision to move. Both my children have settled in beautifully and the staff are so welcoming, caring and attentive to their needs. I love that they can all play outside together and the smaller room sizes mean they have more one on one time with staff. Could not recommend this centre highly enough!!
Mill Park Heights Child Care Centre has made us feel like part of the family from the beginning. Their teachers are all so friendly and nurturing and they helped our girls transition smoothly into their rooms. Thank you for making each day such a fun, explorative and creative experience for our kids!
We would like to take the time out to acknowledge and thank two of your staff Kathryn Vonipenti and Catherine Wallace (4 year Kindergarten at the Y).
The love, care and support that these two loving staff provided for our son can be clearly seen. Both of them were able to tease out and build our little one’s confidence and we could see him grow into a beautiful child who is ready to take the next step in his life.
