We have been at Papilio since our son was 6 months old and love it. The care they show for our son has made it so much easier going back to work knowing he is well looked after and having a great time. The educators are amazing and the centre is lovely and so much nicer than some of the others we toured.

Hard to summarise the disappointment. Not a good experience, lots of incidents. Stuck it out for just over a year. Final straw was Injury to child, requiring hospitalisation. Yes I have already contacted feedback at affinity, with no response previously. Feedback is not well received, nor followed up by centre management. We are now at another centre, its totally a different experience.

Coming from 3 OTHER daycares which were AWFUL I am so happy I found Papilio! It looked small from the outside but it's deceiving as it's actually massive and the outdoor area is full of nature, beautiful sunlight but also heaps of shade! So happy knowing my boy is spending his days there! Cannot fault the staff at all they have been amazing! Highly recommend!

Papilio Wakerley has looked after our family for the past 12 months and we have been very grateful for their professionalism, care and support. They have helped not just our son, but us as parents as well, whenever we have had challenges. The centre is incredibly well set up with great outdoor and indoor play areas, and we have had nothing but good experiences with all of the educators and other staff. The kids get excellent meals and snacks from chef Lucy and we always are updated on the kids' days. Having come from a very small and close-knit day care for the previous 5 years, the large size of this centre was initially challenging for us as parents, but we always feel confident in the care our son is getting, and the combination of educator-led and child-led learning is great.

I was trying to look for 6 stars rating but unfortunately not available. Libby and her team is incredible in the way creating a positive culture and happy place for educators and staff. We had to transfer our child from other centre and wondering why we did not visit this lovely Papilio earlier. After fifth date, very first time our little boy told me in the car "Daddy, I like Papilio" on the way home and he did ask me in the morning to make he could pronounce Papilio as close as possible. I was almost holding my tears as it was an amazing moment after all kind of stresses from transfer, baby sitting at home as only 2 days/week available at centre, etc. Now we have to relocate a near-home centre as 45 mins commuting is too much for him and upset his night time after falling sleep on the way home. We're regretful to leave this week and will be dearly missed such a great time at Papilio Wakerley. Well done and thank you Team.

Thank you for the lovely review Terry. Our Educators always take the time to build strong relationships with our children and their families. We are also very sad to see you go and wish you well.

I wish as parents we had the pleasure of giving positive feed back about this daycare. Unfortunately we pulled our child out due to a string of events. The manager shows lack of knowledge of her service provided , lack of communication with her educators on a day to day basis.

Such a wonderful centre! After looking at a few in the area, this one felt like home. The educators are kind, nurturing and across every aspect of my child’s day. He loves going to daycare and I feel safe leaving him in their care.

Great centre and exceptional educators (including the office staff). Our little girl loves going to daycare each week. Her day is filled with wonderful educational and devopmental activies to keep her busy and learning. There has been a lot of changes within the centre the last few months but the changes implemented are to the benefit of all kids and we a very happy with this daycare. But I think there is always room for improvement.

I’ve had my child in care at Papilio for over 6 months and very happy with the facility and care he is receiving. Have definitely notified an improvement in the facility since being rebranded from Kindy Kapers to Papilio. Money has been spent on furniture/toys/equipment as well as full outdoor renovation. I am very happy with the staff that care for my little one in toddler room. They make him feel secure on drop off with positive and bright energy so he doesn’t have any tears and is happy to be left in their care for the day. Thanks Papilio staff for your hard work. Keep up the good work!

Papilio formerly Kindy Kapers has been part of our village since our eldest was 12 months old. Under Libby’s leadership and formally Kylie’s the Centre has had a beautiful maker over physically and an educational revamp. Our son had a wonderful start to school this year due to the amazing Kindy teacher and my daughter is loving Junior Kindy! The staff are kind, caring and supportive if your child is having a bad day. We had a hump in the road with changing leadership and staff in 2021 and 2022 however the Centre has listened to feedback and is now exactly like the Centre that attracted us initially. Thank you Libby and the team for your patience, support and listening.

Absolutely love Papilio Wakerley, both my daughter and my nephew attend this service and it has always been such a positive experience. My daughter loves kindy so much so that she has increased her days attended due to her constantly asking to go. The Educators and Teachers are exceptional paying close attention to details and the small things that make a huge difference to my daughter and our family. Every Staff member knows my daughter and our family and the center itself oozes that warm family feeling. 100% recommend this service.

We have been so happy with Kindy Kapers Wakerley. Both of our boys attended this service. We have valued the educators in all of the rooms they’ve been in. They put a lot of effort into detailed weekly educational plans and engage the children in interesting activities each day. Parents receive daily updates of learnings/activities through Storypark. We would highly recommend this service.
Reply from Papilio Early Learning Wakerley 2022.02.02
Thank you Kristin, we have loved being a part of both your boys learning journeys. We are glad that you like our choice in storypark as a way of viewing the children's learning.

I am so happy we found Kindy Kapers Wakerly. After a couple of uncomfortable trials at other centres, when I walked into the Kindy 2 room it looked creative, inspiring and magical which for me I feel a classroom needs to be able to grab the attention of students. The director Alana personally gave the tour unlike other centres and promptly answered all questions and concerns I had about my son starting. The Kindy 2 teachers Marina and Yeshmina were very welcoming and happy to talk about any concerns or queries I had, and Scotty at the front desk was quick to respond with any enrollment or sign up questions I had. All of the staff, have been friendly and forthcoming with information and updates even without prompting including for example the teacher from the Kindy 1 room. Knowing about their history and time spent at the centre over the years was also great to be aware of. I was encouraged to call in to see how my son was settling and the lovely Kellie in kindy 2 room gave me a detailed update on his first and second days, her updates on story park are great and my son looks at these even on the days he does not attend so he knows whats been happening. By the weekend of his second day my son kept asking when he could go back to school, and again the following week. Hes had a great experience settling in and talks about his activities when he comes home. The story park app gives great updates on activities and meals and the menu is fantastic, rather than sticking to bland and boring the meals have variety and nutritional value. There isn't much more I could ask for or expect from my sons first daycare/kindy experience and I highly recommend this centre. I'm relieved we persued different centres until we found the right fit. Alana and her team are doing a fantastic job.

Both of my children have attended Kindy Kapers and I couldn't recommend Kindy Kapers high enough. All the staff are friendly, approachable and passion about providing a safe, nurturing educational environment for all children. Kindy Kapers provide child focused program that incorporates different cultures, sustainability, community and nature in a fun play based learning for children. I love getting my daily updates of my children's day on storypark. Fantastic childcare centre!
