Buggles Childcare Maddington

About Us

We believe that every child is unique at Buggles Maddington Maddington Childcare & Daycare Centre Near Me - Preschool & Kindergarten in Perth

At Buggles Maddington, we create these opportunities to let adventures unfold before our very eyes every day. Our early learning and long daycare centre offers child care in the Maddington area, for families living or commuting through the suburbs Gosnells, Kenwick and Kelmscott. We cater for children between the ages of 6 weeks – 5 years and operate between the hours of 6:30am and 6:30pm.

Environments focused on having fun while learning
Children are provided time and space for uninterrupted play as they explore the outdoor spaces to test their limits and develop strength, balance, and self-confidence.

At Buggles Maddington, we are all about having fun while learning. We encourage children to let their creative juices flow through our fun and engaging, sometimes messy learning activities. 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.

Our indoor environments invite exploration with quality resources and learning experiences. Children marvel, create, and test out their ideas as they play with a range of materials in purposeful play spaces. Literacy and numeracy concepts are embedded in play-based learning, as children engage as architects, storytellers, scientists, artists and designers. We also provide quiet activities for the children. We have a specialised pet area with rabbits and guinea pigs where children can explore the environment and learn to care for the animals. We focus on instilling sustainability practices within our centre and acknowledge its importance for our future.

Dedicated team of educators

Our team of Educators have been continuously striving to create an environment that is nurturing and supportive for all children. Our long serving team focuses on getting to know each individual child to support and encourage them on their early learning adventure. The centre is well resourced and each area is specifically designed with young learners in mind, with educators also speaking multiple languages. You will receive daily updates and photos detailing children’s learning and development on our parent App – Xplor.

Our meal times are also an opportunity to learn

At Buggles Maddington 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. We have a specialised 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.

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.

We welcome you to join our centre and be a part of our Buggles community.

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.”

– Priscilla Hogan
