Exceptional childcare centres and kindergartens

Family owned and operated, we provide idyllic early learning centres across Melbourne where every child is cherished and empowered to become brave, creative, resilient and kind.

Everything we do is about providing the best start for every child. Our purpose built centres and learning environments are thoughtfully designed to appeal to the curious nature of children. Our holistic approach to curriculum and nutritionally developed seasonal menus ensure children are nourished and inspired to reach their full learning potential.

With dedicated and passionate educators, we guide, respect and support children aged six weeks to six years. This is a unique place for children to explore, learn, investigate, discover, create and have fun.

Welcome to Niño, where learning is always an adventure.

"I could not be happier with the care my son receives at Niño Point Cook. His educators really care about him and it shows in all the interactions I’ve witnessed and in how comfortable he is around them. He is learning and developing at a pace that suits him and having lots of fun along the way! We love the warm welcome we receive every time we walk into the centre and the friendliness displayed by every single staff member we pass in the hallways.

Highly recommended!"

N. Tehan – Niño Parent

"Just a quick note to pass on how grateful M and I are to all of the staff at Niño for your fantastic work and dedication to the children. Whenever we come into the centre we are greeted by friendly, smiling faces- as a result our boy is completely settled, happy and comfortable. We truly appreciate all that you and the staff do and are relieved to have found such a supportive, warm and welcoming centre."

"I was so anxious about Jackson's first day at childcare. But the staff where so calming and understanding. They soothed me through my tears and gave me the time I needed to leave him. I was told to call whenever and how many times I needed and I did. They are simply fantastic. The facility is fantastic. I simply love Niño ELA for both me and my son."
