About Us

Maddington child & day care centre near me in Perth - childcare, daycare, preschool and kindergarten

Maddington Childcare & Daycare Centre Near Me - Preschool & Kindergarten in PerthHave you ever wondered what mischievous things your little Master Chef can get up to with a bag of flour, or how high your little astronaut can build a rocket ship out of cardboard boxes or how much mess your scientist can make when a volcano made out of bi-carb erupts?

At Buggles Maddington, we create these opportunities to let adventures unfold before our very eyes every day. We believe that each child has innate potential that needs to be nurtured and encouraged. We create wonderful, magical, exciting, funny, messy, enjoyable, creative and experimental activities each day offering your children the opportunity to be children and get into everything, make a mess and just have fun! Our Reggio Emilia based approach to education gives children a platform to thrive while imparting the important life skills that form the foundation for future development, learning and growth.

We believe that each child is special and unique with their own needs, wants, likes and dislikes and we cater for each child for who they are and who they grow into. Nutrition and health play a big role in the quality of care we provide at the centre. We have a specialized menu that is based on recommendations of a nutritionist and ensure that every child at the centre meets his/her daily nutrition, exercise and rest requirements. We offer a trusted routine and serene environment for different age groups by providing meal areas, quiet and sleep areas, inside play areas and an awesome Aussie backyard! Our backyard is a great big adventure land where their imagination is the very start of something amazing… Your child can ride around on bikes, climb on climbing beams, have tea parties in the cubby house or go for a magical walk through the fairy’s garden… the very foundation of beautiful childhood memories.

We cater for children between the ages of 6 weeks – 5 years and operate between the hours of 6:30am and 6:30pm.

All our educators hold qualifications from Certificate III and Diploma in Children’s Services through to BA level Early Childhood Qualifications as well as speaking many languages. Our educators are professional practitioners and observe closely, listen to children carefully and give value to their ideas and then create strategies to build on their interests.

Meet the Centre Manager

Mel Stewart

I commenced my career in Early Education in 2003, studying a Certificate III in Children’s Services at TAFE. From there my passion in children’s development and quality education has grown and led me through a variety of roles from Assistant Educator to Room Leader, then to 2IC and now Centre Manager. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services and enjoy ongoing professional development to continue gaining knowledge and skills to be able to provide exceptional care for children.

I am a passionate advocate for providing a play-based learning environment. I believe this type of learning engages children in a meaningful way to be able to foster, discover and extend their curious and creative minds by exploring their imagination in the natural world providing the best start in life.

Our team strives to provide an environment where the whole family feels like they belong and are valued. Building positive relationships and open communication is the core of our centre with each tea member supported in their own unique strengths and experience to bring sparkle to our centre.

See what some of our parents say about our centre:

“Every time we get out of the car and she sees the sign on the building she starts smiling and wriggling about, she definitely knows where we are and I couldn’t be happier with her reaction because that means she loves her time at Buggles.

The staff are so friendly and I know Ariel loves getting her morning cuddles when she arrives. It made the transition back to work easy because I know they are doing a great job. The evidence is in my babies smile :)”

– Anya Phillips


“Buggles Maddington is a great environment for my sons. Having never used day care before or after school care I was new to this whole environment, but knowing my kids are in a safe & happy environment means so much to me.

With my little one starting in the babies’ room, I was always informed as to his routine throughout the day from his sleeping times to how many bottles he had, even to how many nappies changes there was. Now he’s moved to the toddles room and loving the environment, especially the outdoor play times. Every day I’m able to see what is on the menu board and wish I could stay for a few meals myself and with another one in the after school care, I know I can always rely on them to pick him up from school on time. The staff are always keeping him entertained in the afternoon and I know he’s having fun because he always tells me to come back later when I pick him up.”
