We are conveniently located on Nepean Highway next to Orbit Fitness and our children come from all over the Mornington Peninsula and Mornington.

Pelican Childcare Mount Martha has architecturally designed playgrounds and award winning building design the children love. Our centre boasts a qualified chef who prepares all meals on site with fresh market ingredients and our younger children have adjoining sleeping rooms.

Our team of qualified and caring educators is simply amazing and our commitment to quality child care is second to none. We understand the importance of consistency and stability with your child’s early education.

Individual children’s cultural, religious and nutritional needs are catered for and we encourage communication from parents who like to check on their child’s progress throughout the day. We know how important the decision is as to where you are going to leave your child or baby in day care and we guarantee to make you day care experience full of fun and happiness.
