Welcome to Piptree Eight Mile Plains, I’m Sherri!

I’m the centre manager here at Piptree Eight Mile Plains, centrally located on Warrigal Road. Our centre is a wonderful option for busy families, as we have on-site parking for easy pickup and drop off and a close knit team of educators that love getting to know each and every Piptree family!

We understand learning happens outside of the classroom, which is why we often take the children on excursions to local aged care facilities to give back to our local community. Each week we also have soccer, dance, music and physical education classes so your child can build their confidence and motor skills.

I look forward to taking you through our centre for a tour, and welcoming you to the Piptree family!

"As a former student educator at Piptree, I can confirm that they are the best centre that I’ve visited. The educators really cared about my time there and allowed me to do a variety of interesting, yet educational activities. The hygiene practices are impeccable.
