Bletchley Play & Learn provides long day care for up to 90 children, aged from three months to 6 years. We are open Monday to Friday from 7am to 5.30pm for the entire year (except public holidays).

In addition to our family room, where siblings have the opportunity to play together, children are grouped by age in to four rooms: Nursery room, Toddlers’ room, Pre-Kindy room and Kindy room. The centre has been purpose built to maximize the use of space for the children. The facilities are clean and modern, with lots of natural light inside and wide open spaces for play outside.

The outside area is well equipped with a range of play equipment and structures suited to all ages.Incorporating the natural environment and sustainability into our everyday practices, the outdoor area includes a worm farm and vegetable and herb garden created and cared for by the children.

An extensive range of quality toys, natural resources, books and other play equipment are provided and regularly updated.  Access to a wide range of recycled and natural materials is on hand for art, creative play and imagination.

A dedicated Food Coordinator provides homecooked, heathy and nutritious meals daily.

Weekly fun and educational incursions such as the Happy Feet Fitness program are provided and included in our fees.   Happy Feet Fitness inspires creative movement through music, and encourages children to make positive, healthy choices for themselves, the world around them and in their relationships with others.

Three and four year olds can enrol in our Kindy Program run by an Early Childhood Teacher.  Children have the opportunity to learn and consolidate those all important numeracy, literacy and social skills to support them with their transition into primary school.

“Fantastic daycare. The staff are amazing and very warm and caring to my little girl. The education programs and facilities are great and variety of food is fantastic. I love Bletchley Play & Learn for my little girl and would recommend it to anyone.”

“Love Love Love Bletchley. The staff, centre, premises is wonderful. We had our now 6.5 yo daughter there from 18 months to 4 years and now our 2 year old is there. Very impressed with the friendly staff who greet you and fuss your child on arrival and upon pick up greet you to advise how your child went through the day. Photo’s are displayed with diary updates from the day so you can see your child having fun, keeping busy and interacting well with others. I have dropped in during nap time to be absolutely amazed at how the staff have the toddlers fast asleep napping. Food is awesome as the chef is fantastic. I also love that some of the staff are the same from when my first child attended. Staff are well spoken, groomed, presented and just wonderful with the kids. Its a great centre with very good communication. Thanks Bletchley, keep up the great work.”

“Would highly recommend Bletchley Play & Learn we have three kids who go twice a week. The staff are compassionate and caring. Our kids all love going which makes leaving them there for the day so much easier. The centre is very clean, provides different learning environments for children and has a great emphasis on nature and the outdoor environment, which our kids love. Thanks to all the staff at Bletchley.”

“My children first started at Bletchley Play & Learn three years ago. Since then my daughter has started full-time school, but my son still attends two days a week…and still loves going. Bletchley Play & Learn is a happy and loving daycare. The venue is modern and bright; and the facilities, toys and equipment are fun and exciting for inquisitive little minds. The meals and snacks are delicious – so I am frequently told- but it is the staff at Bletchley that truly ‘make’ the centre. The staff are clearly passionate about what they do. They understand that placing your child/ren into the care of someone else is an enormous undertaking for any parent. The ladies at Bletchley, without exception, are professional and dedicated, but even more importantly for me as a parent, they are loving, caring and nurturing and truly invested in my son’s life. Without reservation I would and do recommend Bletchley Play & Learn”

“It has been an absolute pleasure being part of your Centre since it opened.  You have provided care for all three of our children over the years of which we are grateful and have approciated”

“I know that Play & Learn say they strive to offer each child with a secure and happy environment.  In my family’s case i can confess that Bletchley Play & Learn delivers on that promise”

“We are coming up to our 1 year anniversary at Bletchley Play & Learn and what a big year it’s been for our little girl! Sienna started at Bletchley when she was just 7 months old, 11 months later and our little girl is not so little anymore! She surprises us with little outbursts of song, including the scream at the end of ‘Row, Row, Row Your Boat’ and the hand gestures to ‘Incy Wincy Spider’. As she begins her transition to the toddler room, we are seeing a very independent little girl emerge – one who likes to carry her own bag, put on her own shoes and zip up her own jumper. She happily waves goodbye in the morning and often runs back into the centre when we come to pick her up. We are very grateful to have found Bletchley and the wonderful staff who care for our daughter, and are looking forward to the year ahead”

“Our now 4 year old has been attending Bletchley Play & Learn since he was nearly 3. He  had delayed speech/development and when he started had only been speaking for 6 months. Riley now speaks fluently and is reading at a much higher level than his age. His development has been amazing in the last 18 months and he loves his time at the centre with his friends and teachers. I am sure Riley’s development has been greatly improved by his time at Bletchley Play & Learn and the special care he has received from everyone there”

“My son was lucky enough to spend his first 12 months of daycare life at Bletchley Play & Learn. We started at the age of 10 months. The experience of passing daily care of your child to others can be quite traumatic for any new mother but the staff at Bletchley were seasoned professionals at handling mine and my son’s anxiety. Before long it seemed that daycare days were his happiest and he was so much more interactive when he came home. By the time he moved to the toddler room I could see his development was more advanced that that of children I knew who did not attend daycare and I loved seeing him do and say new things at home which made me think “I wonder where he learnt that”. The carers clearly love the children and the feeling was mutual with Louis often asking for the staff by name each time we got in the car to go somewhere. I would highly recommend them to anyone”
