Here at Casey Childcare & Kindergarten, we are extremely passionate about the growth and self-expression of the children that are entrusted in our care. We are a trusted childcare centre in Pakenham that believes in providing an environment that is both practical for natural exploration and for growing through social interaction at a young age and one that is fitting with our mission of enabling for a foundation of the fundamentals that are needed for a bright future.


Since 2013, our centre for childcare in Pakenham has been committed to the care and education of children through classroom experiences and through the meaningful interactions that children have with their peers and our professionally trained staff. We believe that parents should know of the progress of their children in our care, which is why our online presence allows for you learn more information, see a photo gallery of our students in classrooms, and connect with us through email. One innovation that we are particularly proud of is our website’s ability to provide more transparent access for parents to monitor the progress of their children.

Newly refurbished, our facilities and classrooms are top class. We have all new, naturally manufactured toys, furnishings, and equipment, as we wanted to create an ideal environment for kids to learn and interact in. We warmly invite families to come visit and see first-hand how accommodating an environment we have meticulously prepared for the children of Pakenham and its surrounding suburbs.

Teaching your child in their early stages of development is a privilege, and as such, we take great care to provide comfortable, creative environments for them to learn and interact in. Our large Clown Fish Room has a relaxed ambiance with colourful lights and relaxing music, making it ideal for children that are aged six weeks to 17 months. Many little ones love our Sea Horse Room as it features areas that are designed for lots of different styles of play. The Turtles Room offers more opportunity for social exploration as kids of two to three years of age develop their social and emotional skills inside and outside. In the Turtles Room, we pay particular attention to listening and speech development as children learn crucial life skills like sharing, turn-taking and empathising. The Dolphin/Pre Kinder children can interact with their three year-old peers all day long, which gives them the opportunity to explore the emotional development that arises through social interaction.

What you’ll have most likely gathered by now is just how well thought-out and proficiently designed our rooms are. Each one offers the opportunity for kids of a certain age to be themselves and be comfortable in an environment that promotes learning and all areas of development.

If you would like to learn more about our other rooms or maybe even see them for yourself, why not get in touch with us today? We would be thrilled for the opportunity to meet you in person, so please do not hesitate to visit us on the grounds of St. Patrick’s Parish.
