Welcome to Papilio Early Learning, your best choice in early education, childcare and Kindergarten in Samford. 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 ...
  • "Excellent centre my kids love “froggy daycare” especially on bike days, they don’t want to come home"
    - Jess, July 2020 (Google Review)
  • "My kids have been going here for the last few years, my youngest will be starting prep next year and the educators at Tadpoles have made this the easiest transition. The kids learn so much here and they always have excursions and fun activities planned. Jes, Glenda and Kim have been outstanding over the years and can't thank them enough for their patience, love and care they give to each child. I always recommend Tadpoles to anyone in Samford looking for the best early leaning for their children"
    - Emma, December 2019 (Google Review)
  • "We love this centre! My first child has been through Samford Tadpoles from 8 months to 5 years of age. It was wonderful to see how much she thrived, with the many opportunities for learning and exploring, nurtured by the caring staff. My second is now happily attending the centre and loves the huge playground, water park, and most of all - playing with his friends and having cuddles from the lovely educators :)"
