About Us

The Turtletot story

Turtletot childcare is a family-owned early childhood education centre that has been proudly contributing childcare services to the Bexley and St George area since 2009. Our purpose-built facility with six classrooms, is a hub for the local community that emphasises wholesome fun, inclusion and lots of positive energy for kids and parents alike.
Every day up to 91 children enjoy our full-service childcare and become part of the family, with best-practice education and inclusivity from our team of over 25 qualified educators. Our motto since the beginning has been  "Love, Care and Education" for everyone who comes through our doors.
So come inside and take a look, we’d love to show you around.

How Turtletot came to be

After starting our own family with twins in 2002, we began researching childcare options in our local area. While there were many good Bexley childcare centres nearby, we didn’t find what we were looking for.
Our vision was to create a place that offered a complete service for both children and parents/carers – a full-service childcare centre that felt like home but offered the best professional care. We began to research what an all-inclusive service for children aged 0 to 6 leading to primary education would look like, hence Turtletot was born!


Our two nursery rooms (for 0 to 2-year-olds) are Earth Room with 12 children and Room Bembul with 16 children. The rooms are divided into indoor and outdoor experiences, cognitive, sensory




Our two toddler (for 2-3 year olds) rooms are Water Room and Room Badu. Both are bright and naturally lit with ample space for children to explore and learn through play.




Our two preschool rooms, Forest Room and Room Temora, each hold 16 children allowing our educators to get to know your child on a more personal basis.



Daycare in Bexley that covers everything

As parents of twins, we understand how busy life can get when you’re juggling childcare, work and the million other challenges of daily life. Through our research into childcare, we decided that the best way to help both kids and parents was to offer an all-inclusive service for childcare. No matter what age, every child at our Bexley childcare facility enjoys five home-style cooked meals every day and has access to bed linen, nappies and every other necessity. All parents need to do is kiss them goodbye at the drop-off and hug them hello at pick up.

In between, our team of professional educators take care of everything, from feeding and hygiene to learning and playing through activities and experiences. That’s why people love sending their kids to Turtletot childcare. We take care of everything, so you can tackle the rest.

Our Philosophy

Total care from the ground up - in beautiful grounds

We built a special purpose centre for childcare in Bexley, engaging a specialist architect to create a home away from home that prepares children for their journey into “big school”.
We wanted the children in our facility to enjoy a safe, healthy environment that was fun and educational. Our design was created with inclusive classrooms for infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children, with three rooms taking a theme each of Earth, Water and Forest. The Earth room is for infants because we are all born of the earth. Water is where we begin to safely explore our limits, so toddlers take this room. And in the forest, we spread our wings, perfect for preschool kids with expansive outdoor areas that inspire little imaginations!

A growing family childcare in Bexley

Turtletot childcare opened its doors 2009 and within six months we were at full capacity! At the 18-month mark, the childcare governing body tested us and awarded “High-Quality Accreditations”, returning in 2014 to award us an “Exceeding Standard” rating.
With this very strong start, the opportunity came in 2015 to purchase a neighboring property, allowing us to expand our services from 44 places per day to 91. The same design standards and philosophy of love, care and education guided the new addition’s development, and now our facility is one of the best and brightest in Australia.
