    Quality Childcare in Everton Park

    Helping your child reach their full potential

    Tour & Enrol
Welcome to Milestones, previously known as Gumtree Cottage, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in Everton Park. We're welcoming new families to join our Baby Nursery, Toddler Program and Kindergarten. You're invited to visit for a free stay and play date or family tour today!

Your child's lifelong learning journey starts here! Our approach begins with a focus on baby sensory play and building secure attachments so our littlest learners develop the confidence they need to explore.

This is followed by exciting play-based toddler programs featuring opportunities to develop literacy, numeracy, and early socialisation skills. Children aged from 3-years old can join our Kindergarten programs, developing the school readiness skills they need to thrive in Primary School.

"Research shows the first five years of your child's life are the most important. Our lifelong learning approach will support your child to develop emotionally, socially, physically and academically, no matter what age they begin with us, to ensure they develop a lifelong love of learning. Together, we can help your child reach their full potential." Dr Lesley Jones

What our families say about us ...
  • "We moved our child to Milestones at the beginning of this year and could not be more overjoyed with the decision. We have gone from teary drop offs and pick ups to a happy, confident child begging to go to Kindy every day! The staff are exceptional, caring, empathetic, authentic and put their everything into their roles which shows in the children and their development. Thank you to you all for doing such an amazing job, we are so pleased to be a part of the MEL community!"

  • "Our son has been going to milestones since October last year. We are first time parents and we were extremely scared of leaving him. Well there was no need to be scared, our bub loves going to daycare. The team at milestones are now part of our family. Tina and everyone have been so welcoming, helpful and informative. They have helped us with sleeping issues, feeding issues. We have no family close by and the team have just supported us with everything we need."

  • "Tina and the staff at Gumtree Cottage are Amazing! The genuine affection and dedicated support shown to each individual in their care, vastly surpasses their competitors. Loyal, dedicated staff, wonderful attention to detail and the friendly environment makes leaving my daughter each day a joy- We only wish we found this centre earlier! I can highly recommend the Gumtree Cottage community for both their daycare and Kindergarten program. Mr Phil and the whole team are exceptional educators."
