I whole-heartedly recommend Lillypilly to anyone seeking quality child-care. The centre is impeccably presented with a wide range of new indoor and outdoor activities designed to engage and educate children through play. It radiates warmth through the staff and management who are always welcoming and provide me with a sense that they are genuinely interested in my child.
Iskra and Trent (Lillypilly Parents)
The pre-school offers a warm and nurturing environment, while still preparing my son for the structure of Kindergarten. The staff provide a rich learning environment every day filled with paint, glue, dress-ups, songs, stories and relaxation.
Nicky (Lillypilly Mum)
It really is a ‘home away from home’ environment. From the moment you walk through the door of a morning, you are greeted with a friendly good morning from the staff and smiles all round, the sound of music in the background (and often Helen’s singing) and happy laughing children ready to start their day. Our daughter cannot get in the door quick enough. Lillypilly Pre-school is the best!
Karen and David (Lillypilly Parents)
I love the way you have just embraced my boys and nothing is ever a problem. Having kids with special needs is difficult and sometimes you need to just step away. The beauty of Lillypilly is that I can step away with confidence… confidence that my boys are embraced by all and they are emerged in the richest of learning environments. Thanks for everything.
Suzanne (Lillypilly Mum)
A nurturing, caring, friendly and happy environment. Thanks guys, you have all made a huge difference in my children’s lives.

Lillypilly now uses Kinderloop!
What is Kinderloop? To explain simply, Kinderloop is an app that is available for free on your smartphones, tablets and computers that lets you keep up-to-date with your child’s activities at Lillypilly.
Our staff create posts on the app frequently with photos and learning outcomes so that you can be notified in real-time.
Your child’s profile is private to you (and any family members you wish to invite to the app) via a closed and secure learning loop.
