About Mayfield Childcare

Mayfield Childcare has been established with a clear vision of enhancing and delivering high quality childcare.

Mayfield Childcare Limited (ASX: MFD) listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in November 2016 and has since grown to own and operate 39 childcare centres with over 3,000 registered childcare places across Victoria, Queensland, and South Australia.

Our goal at is to deliver exceptional, high-quality services to families by continuously improving our centres and surpassing National Quality Standards. We believe that providing the best education and care will create a positive impact on the lives of families we serve.

Mayfield employs a centralised and cost-effective management structure to simplify day-to-day operations and integration of centres. We plan to expand our business through targeted acquisitions of established childcare centres that meet specific criteria, including supply/demand metrics, centre size, location, utilisation, and profitability.

Mayfield Childcare Limited, its Board, Management, Employees, Volunteers and Contractors are committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. We have zero tolerance for child abuse and are committed to acting in children’s best interests. We will ensure our environment and practices are always safe, consistent and aligned to all legislative requirements including the Child Safe Standards (ccyp.vic.gov.au/resources/child-safe-standards).

Statement of Commitment to Child Safety

Our Vision

Where every child reaches their natural potential.

Our Mission

At Mayfield, we are committed to providing a warm, safe, and inviting environment for every child. We tailor programs that reflect each community's unique character and deliver quality care that exceeds expectations. Our experienced team is dedicated to nurturing and developing every child's potential while encouraging independence, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on four pillars.
Pillar 1

Connected by Community

Every Mayfield centre is grounded in its location, providing warm and inviting spaces that welcome every child. We tailor programs that reflect each community's unique character.

Whether it's a warm hello at the morning drop-off, sharing the adventures of the day with the children, or catching up with educators, Mayfield is at the heart of every child's community.

After all, it takes a village.

Pillar 2

In Safe Hands

The most important thing in any relationship is trust. Mayfield centres deliver on this promise through consistency, reliability, and attention to detail. As a listed company, every action and process is rigorously assessed to ensure a safe, nurturing environment for every child.

Pillar 3

Quality Education You Can Count On

At Mayfield, we aim to deliver the best quality care, programs, and governance, exceeding all expectations in everything we do.

To achieve this, we are passionate about elevating and developing our experienced team. We want our people to take pride in being a part of Mayfield and to deliver on our promise of quality every day.

Pillar 4

Home Away from Home

Care is at the heart of everything we do. Through our incredibly experienced team embedded in each community, Mayfield delivers warm and familiar learning environments that make every child feel like they are in a home away from home.

We are protective, encouraging, supportive, and helpful. We are motivated by togetherness and inclusiveness, encouraging every child's independence, self-esteem, and sense of belonging.
