The Cheltenham campus is located at 1324 Nepean Highway, Cheltenham. This single level early learning centre opened August 2019 where we have our own curriculum directly linked to the Early Years Learning Framework that allows our educators to have input into the children’s learning and development.

We focus on learning through play and allow room for intentional teaching lead by our fully qualified educators and teachers. We offer incursions, excursions, extracurricular activities, a three year old kinder program and a four year old kinder program at no extra cost to your family.

At our Cheltenham campus we supply all meals, nappies, sunscreen, sun hats and bedding. On a daily basis we have set routines with flexibility based on the children’s needs and wants. Together we create natural play areas inside and outside allowing educators, families and children’s input into what they like to see and develop with us. We encourage feedback both positive and negative from all our families, children and educators to ensure we have open communication and are on the same page when it comes to our number one priority your children.

Our commercial kitchen run by our fully qualified chef provides a nutritionally balanced breakfast, lunch, progressive morning tea, afternoon tea and a late night snack. Cheltenham campus has a spacious dining room with a huge built in servery and fish tank for your children. This campus has an interactive fruit and vegetable garden that the chef and children have access to organic produce for their meals and to further their learning.

The Cheltenham campus is of the highest quality and consists of beautiful bathrooms, nappy change facilities, a separate sleep (cot) room, a mindfulness room and six modern purpose built age appropriate classrooms. Each classroom caters for specific age groups that are no more than a one year span.

Supervision and safety is so important when it comes to your child and to assist with this we go above the legislative standards and staff above ratio plus we ensure all our staff are first aid, anaphylaxis and asthma trained. Our goal is to provide the community with a five star service that meets all families needs and wants, a service where the children’s needs always come first and where the children feel at home with loving supporting positive educators teaching them on a daily basis.

Families feel the loving caring environment we offer from the minute they walk in the door and feel they can communicate with us at all times. We provide multicultural experiences and have an open door policy to the families during our operating hours. All the children, families and staff feel safe, secure and welcome in our service.

What People are Saying About Us

I have found the care of my baby to be of such a high standard. The management and staff have provided our son with so much love and care since he commenced on opening of this centre. We have been reassured, welcomed and our child loved and cared for as well as educated beyond our expectations.
Thank you so much Elles Belles. I would recommend you to anyone looking for childcare within the area. We could not ask for a better centre to send our baby boy!

K Baker

Beautiful centre with loving staff and beyond amazing management! Highly recommend Elles Belles wonderful service!

Robi Trim

Excellent Centre! Couldn’t recommend this childcare centre and their staff highly enough.

Our children love attending, the facility is by far the best I’ve ever seen and the staff are absolutely fantastic.

Special mention to Lucy and Michelle who always greet you warmly, know everyone by name and always listen to any concerns you’re having, addressing them immediately.

Also to Lisa and Dana who have made me feel so comfortable leaving my baby because I can see how loved and cared for he is and I know he loves his time with them. They’ve made the difficult transition back to work that much smoother


Our family could not be happier with our experience at Elles Belles. From day one the staff have been warm & welcoming. Leaving my son in their care feels like I am leaving him with family. The centre itself is spectacular, every space has been thoughtfully considered so that the children are engaged, encouraged & most importantly, happy. Counting our lucky stars Elles Belles opened this new location. Thank you!

Bridget Harty

My 2 LO moved from another day care centre recently. I was worried about the kids transitioning to Ells Bells. From day one drop off to now a few weeks in the kids love it! No crying at drop off and the don’t want to leave when I go to get them. The staff are fantastic and talk to me when I am there, they are always engaging the kids with books or songs or gardening. What a change from our old day care.
I cannot recommend Elles Bells more !

Catherine Edwards

Beautiful purpose built centre with staff who truly care! My boys moved from another centre and they transitioned so well. They LOVE coming to Elles Belles and have so much fun.

The food is great and nutritious, so impressed by the sustainability in growing some of their own produce! I can’t recommend this centre enough! As a Scot in Aus we have no family here to help with the boys and having a centre like this really takes the stress out of childcare. We know our boys are well looked after and are gaining valuable skills/knowledge in a fun way! Thank you!

Amanda Love

We would like to recommend Elles Bells Early Learning to anyone that is looking for a childcare or kindergarten service.
All the staff are very professional, warm and loving towards our children. The extra support this service has given us over the past couple of weeks has been amazing. The quality of care and education is to the highest of standards. My little boy also loves the food he is given during the day. One thing I love about this service is the educators are always the same when you drop your children off. This service makes my children feel like they are a part of the family and are at a home away from home. I will be recommending this service to all my friends and family. Thank you Lucy your one in a million

Bel Pen

Elles Belles is everything you would expect/hope for/desire in a childcare centre, and so much more! You’re welcomed not only by friendly front office Management, Michelle and Lucy, but every educator that walks past you smiles and says hello. The well-organised and well-equipped rooms are above and beyond. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered and my daughter (2 y.o almost 3) just adores her room and educators. The educators are exceptionally proactive, I never have to ask ‘how was she today’. They are always on the front foot and fill me in as soon as I walk in the room. I could not recommend Elles Belles highly enough.

Amanda Conly

I cannot recommend Elle’s Belles enough. I moved my Son from another day care as I didn’t believe he was getting the best care. I’ve never looked back the Educators are genuine & lovely they are always happy to see Conor & always want cuddles. He’s so happy here & It makes me incredibly happy to know that he’s safe & taken care of. Thank you so much.

Tara Maye

I can’t emphasise enough how much I appreciate the love and support the Elle’s Belles staff provided.

My son was never great with drop offs, but the care and attention the girls gave my son in the mornings was amazing. I could drop off knowing he was well looked after and 100% loved.

What drew me to centre firstly was how beautifully set up it was and it had such a warm feeling as soon as you walked in. From the moment I met Elena, Michelle and Lucy I knew there was no point at looking at any other centre .. They engaged with my son so beautifully I knew this was the right place for us.
Cannot recommend this centre enough!!
Thanks for all the smiles, the chats and having all the kid’s best interests at heart all the time. You girls are seriously the best in the business.
Please open a centre on the peninsula!!!
Arlo and I will miss you all.

Medina Dredge

There are not enough words to say how much we appreciate the love and support the educators and management at Elle’s Belles provide. Our kids love attending each day and leave each day with lots of stories of how incredible their day was. From playing on the piano to the many excursions- they love it.

Our kids have never been great with drop offs and the care and attention the team give both kids in the morning is amazing- I can do drop off knowing they are well looked after and loved. Our eldest has a mind of his own and can be a handful at times- but the team have created such an inclusive environment and we work together to improve his behaviour and development at kinder and home.

The centre is so beautiful and has such a warm feeling as soon as you walk in. We are proud to be part of the Elle’s Belles family.

Thanks for all the smiles, the chats and most importantly having all the kid’s best interests at heart all the time.

Cannot recommend this centre enough!!

Kat Gibbs

My son LOVES going to Elles Belles. He has been going for about 3 months now but it feels like we’ve been going for years! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, everyone knows us and we only attend 2 days a week.
I love seeing the connection that my son has with the educators, not just in his room but in other rooms – it makes me feel comfortable knowing that he can progress within the centre, surrounded by people he feels comfortable with.
He loves it so much that when I pick him up, he doesn’t want to go.
I’m also amazed by all the things he has learnt in such a small time.
I feel like the educators really take the time and care to cater to each child’s developmental needs and preferences. They bend over backwards to make sure each kid is happy and thriving.
We honestly couldn’t say a bad word about the place. And couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Emma Gardiner

Elles Belles has been a blessing for my family. Michelle and Lucy were so welcoming when we came for a tour and made us feel like we were with family. As we walked through the centre, every educator had a smile on their face and said hello to us. We knew from that moment this was the centre for us.
My children bonded with their educators straight away. Desi always knows how to make my son laugh. The love and care the educators provide everyday really makes it easier for me to leave my children knowing they are in safe hands. I love the program as it reflects the children’s interests and shows me the educators really do pay attention to all the children’s needs.
Elles Belles is a one of a kind and we are very fortunate to be a part of the Elles Belles family.

Wynter James

I could not recommend this centre highly enough. We moved to Elles Belles from another centre and they made the transition so easy for my daughter. Since then, she has thrived in the care of the wonderful educators across multiple rooms. The facilities are amazing (I love how much natural light my daughter gets) and the centre feels so welcoming from the moment you walk in. Lucy is so knowledgeable and her experience in the industry is evident in every aspect of the running of the centre. I always feel like my daughter is in the safest of hands and the educators take a genuine interest in her individual development. My daughter has formed a close bond with many of the educators and even asks to see them on weekends. I am so glad we found Elles Belles!


Elles Belles is beyond amazing! I have never been to a centre that is so welcoming and all the staff have a smile on their face! The facility is beautiful and so many wonderful resources. I see so many children running to their educators for cuddles and it is so heart-warming. This centre has a beautiful family vibe and I feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful place.

Lenny loves ELLES BELLES Early Learning and so does his Papa and Mama. Lenny is our first child and when it was time for Lenny to go to day care we were very nervous and worried. Once we had our tour at Elles Belles with amazing Lucy we knew straight away that there is no reason to be worried. Lucy and her team are the most amazing people. I have not once felt worried or stressed when leaving Lenny at DC. I know he has the most amazing time and so much fun. I feel like he is coming home with so much more knowledge and skills. He never cries when I drop him off instead he will walk to either Savita or Brooke his DC teachers and gives the girls a cuddle.(thanks girls you are the best) Savita and Brooke are generous and you can truly feel that the girls have such good hearts and love their job and our babies. I just love it there so much I would like to stay myself for the day. Another thing is that Elles Belles is spotless clean and the cots are just super adorable and cuddly. The white music is peaceful and it truly feels like a relaxing day spa experience. Can I come too? 😉 I recommend Elles belles to all my mama friends and I am so glad that Lucy opened her arms for little Lenny when I needed help so desperately. I feel very lucky that I have found a place I feel so comfortable and happy with. Go and visit Elles Belles – book a tour with fabulous Lucy or fabulous Michelle. You will know what I mean once you walk in the front door.
Thanks for everything ladies and well done. Lenny loves you lots. xxx

Lisa-Marie Hinton

Best childcare! Staff is friendly, well trained and conducive to children development. I wouldn’t have my child anywhere else.

Alexander Rose

Beautiful set up, fantastic location, lovely owner and great staff

Pandelis Pizanias

A very modern, thoughtfully planned and designed centre with state of the art facilities. This centre truly demonstrates best practice in all aspects of early childhood education and learning through its staff and programs.

Magdaline Pothitos

Unbelievable words coming out of this from many local Bayside parents.
All very happy with their kids and team there.

Matthew Pillios

Total respect. The educators at Elles Belles Early Learning I think love my girls as much as I do! Wouldn’t trust their education to anyone else in these formative years. Educators are so so important for the kids as well as the adults. The communication is fantastic I found myself chasing my precious Centre but Elena is fantastic and is so accommodating and lovely. It really eases my parental anxiety.

Kate Marshall

Elena the friendly, passionate boss. I worked in administration for Elena while she has her last service. Elena is a passionate emp0loyer. Elena creates a strong vision for the service and follows through with it until she sees results. Elena is inclusive and open and takes a big interest in the staff, children and families at her service. Her spirit and zest for life lend themselves well to the industry. Elena will throw herself into all of her future endeavours with gusto.

Megan Leahy

Elle’s Belles is a godsend. We were currently looking for looking for a new centre due to some incompatibility issues with another child which couldn’t be resolved. It just so happened they held their amazing open day that Sunday we were first thinking of the move. Wet met all the staff, who were wonderful, professional and all genuinely looked like they loved their job and the centre. Michelle was amazing and spent the time to hear our story and discuss everything and anything we asked about the centre. She was so passionate and won us over straight away. It also helped that the fees were better than our previous centre. Our daughter is in the 2year old room with Desi. My wife was so concerned about the transition, but I was in shock when picking her up. First off, she used the toilet all day! We had not even started full toilet training, just the odd “let’s go to the toilet” with no luck. Then a whole day of toilet use with no dramas. Secondly she was so happy, she didn’t want to leave. What an amazing first week, we can’t thank all the staff enough for such a warm welcome. Highly recommended for any families looking for a change or a new beginning.

Matthew Bowyer

This warm inviting centre has thought of everything.
Great outdoor spaces, open ended experiences, inviting materials and light filled play rooms that are age appropriate and fun appropriate and fun.
The warm faces that greet you at the door, reassure you that your child is in good hands and that a fun filled day of adventure awaits them.
From a nursery room with separate sleep room, to the kindergarten room where the technology is literally in the hands of the children. Every child’s age and stage needs are met with a lot of forward thinking and child directed experiences.
I am so impressed by this centre and look forward to future visits.

Kristy Ziskos

Love this centre. Beautiful place, great facilities, wonderful team. My kids have just started attending Elles Belles, but it’s as though they’ve been there forever. Even on the very first day, drop off was no problem at all as they practically ran in with excitement! Thank you to all the educators for being so welcoming and for always engaging parents and children.

Natalie Sia

Amazing Centre! We recently moved our daughter to Elles Belles and she has settled in like she’s been there forever. The educators and staff are so warm and welcoming which has been so comforting through the transition! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful family environment for their little ones!

Abby Chadderton

I’m kind of jealous that my kids get to hang out at Elle’s Belles, and I have to go to work! As parents, we think Elle’s Belles is fantastic. But what’s even more important, is that my 2 kids come home excited and happy after a day full of learning and fun. Infant room is so nurturing and engaging for my son. The kinder room provides my daughter with such great hands on learning experience. Couldn’t be happier
