The Aeon Academy team believes all children are innately gifted and talented and that education is a natural outcome of creativity. Everything we do is about nurturing their creative spark and inspiring them to learn through creativity and play. We strive to support families and recognise that our dedicated and experienced Educators are privileged to be a positive and formative part of your child’s life. 

At Aeon Academy your child’s safety and wellbeing come first. Outside school hours education and care is our specialisation and our sole focus. Our engaged and caring leadership team works on site with their fingers on the pulse every day ensuring your child will experience a safe learning environment where they can exercise their imaginative problem solving, build their compassion, engage in enjoyable playful experiences and explore endless possibilities. Our Educators are supported to have the quality time needed to meaningfully engage with your child.

Choose from a suite of quality programs so that your child gets the best outcomes. Our strong and well-established reputation for quality programming is built upon programs that children love. Our team of highly qualified Educational Leaders and Programming Directors meaningfully tailor programs to differing individual and community needs and interests, maximising your child’s engagement and learning. All of our unique Foundation and Specialised Programs promote creative thinking, skills building, adaptable approaches to problem solving and open up endless possibilities for your child.

Environmental sustainability is an essential part of our philosophy. We embed sustainability in the day-to-day activities and programming of our Service. We believe in empowering children as active global citizens.

The Aeon Academy experience is akin to being among a caring family. We understand that learning is a lifelong journey and we strive to be an organisation that nurtures that journey; from very young children, to primary students, to teenagers and young people.
