Take a Virtual Tour
Mill Park Heights Childcare Centre is next to Mill Park Leisure Centre on Morang Drive, close to Mill Park Primary School, Stables Shopping Centre and Westfield Plenty Valley.
Our curriculum reflects 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.
The centre has 5 rooms offering long day-care and integrated kindergarten* catering for children 6 weeks old to 6 years old.
The newly renovated yard lets the children enjoy a large thriving educational hub. Children and educators helped design the yard to promote psychological and physical health.
The vibrant area includes:
- a sandpit
- cubby house
- outdoor chalkboard
- miniature road
- water play
- age-appropriate play equipment
- a yarning circle for story time and Acknowledgement of Country.
The centre also has a veggie patch where we teach children about the importance of sustainability and the environment.
Connecting to the local community
Our children become connected to the local community. Educator-led community walks encourage them to talk about what they experience. We also offer Bush Kinder where the children learn through interacting with the natural environment in a local park. The children learn about our local produce, the cost and value of the groceries and healthy eating during trips to the local Woolworths.
Creating open lines of communication
We use Storypark to help track children’s development and share information about upcoming events and happenings at the centre. Storypark allows us to deepen relationships with 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.
Providing nutritious meals
We prepare nutritious meals so our children have plenty of energy to learn and play. Their favourites include pasta bolognese, shepherd’s pie and tuna pasta bake. The children love our hearty winter soups: chicken and vegetable, Thai sweet potato and potato and leek. Sometimes we get adventurous and cook butter chicken and fish and potato curry!
*Children in our integrated Kindergarten program must attend at least 2 days to meet the minimum 15 hours for a Kindergarten program.

Our brand new yard upgrade is complete! 🥳
With works valued at $254,000 we can’t thank The Y Whittlesea and the Victorian Government enough for their support and funding.
Our kids are absolutely loving the design and materials used in the yard by the team at Barefoot Grass and Landscaping 🌿
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.
