Childcare painting Brisbane

High-quality interior and exterior painting for childcare and early learning centres

It’s incredible what colour can do to a space. We at Surepaint know that well. One of our commercial painting services involves childcare and early learning centres, and the right colours and types of paint can really improve the atmosphere and change the mood of everyone who walks into the room.

Some colours are great at soothing and creating a calm atmosphere. Others are fun and can help add an energy that wasn’t there before. If you’re looking to add some colour and a fresh atmosphere for your staff and the centre’s families, why not get in touch with us today?

We provide professional childcare painting services across Brisbane. Surepaint has built a reputation for professionalism, swift and quality workmanship, good prices and great customer service. We hold ourselves to the highest standards in every project.

Our Childcare Painting Process

Our professional painting service follows a simple but effective formula for success. 


The initial planning stage is especially vital to childcare or early learning centre painting projects. We will sequence our work outside of operating hours to avoid disrupting the centre’s daily operations. Whether you know exactly what you want or don’t know where to start, we’ll be on hand to help provide guidance and expertise to help you plan every aspect.

Paint Selection

Surepaint uses a range of Australian-made and owned premium level paints, and for any commercial space with children (such as schools or childcare centres), we use low VOC coatings (VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds). Low VOC paints dry faster and produce less noxious fumes, which helps protect those with asthma or other sensitivities. We have a range of colours available to choose from and a variety of finishes for exterior and interior surfaces.


The painting stage itself is based on best practice guidelines and starts with preparing the work area, sanding, painting, finishing touches and cleaning up. We’ll make sure to pack down each day and ensure any equipment that needs to be kept on site is secure and out of reach of little fingers – we’re here to work with you around your centre’s needs.

Property protection

Not only are we careful to avoid mistakes or damage to the site, but our paints are designed to be durable and last under Brisbane’s weather conditions

How is Childcare Painting Done?

Surepaint’s crew of professional Brisbane painters can carry out interior or exterior projects for your childcare centre – or both! The exact process is a little different for each type of surface. 

Exterior painting involves:

Pressure wash, scrape and sand to clean the area

Gaps, cracks and holes filled in

Spot prime 

Tape off windows and surfaces that aren’t getting painted

Sealer coat

First coat of exterior low VOC acrylic paint

Sand and wipe

Apply the second coat of exterior low VOC acrylic paint

Finishing touches and tidy up


Our interior painting process sticks to this winning recipe:

Sand the surfaces you want painted

Fill in any dents, gaps and scratches

Spot prime 

Apply anti-mould solution to bathroom and wet area walls and ceilings

First coat of interior low VOC acrylic paint

Second coat of interior low VOC acrylic paint

Finishing details and tidy up

For any interior trims, our painting process is different again due to the different types of paints we use:

Sand and fill in holes

Apply an oil-based primer

Apply first coat of water-based low VOC enamel

Apply a second coat of low VOC enamel

Childcare Painting FAQ’s

To minimise disruption we can arrive once the centre closes for the day and get to work. We’ll be sure to pack up and tidy the area every day so the childcare centre will be ready for normal operations the next day.

If you’re having exterior surfaces painted we can operate during the day provided the area can be blocked off.

This depends on the exact size of the childcare, but we can normally get a Brisbane childcare centre painted in 1 to 2 weeks – 3 at the most for larger centres or more extensive projects that include some additional services.
Low VOC paints are designed to reduce the fumes which can trigger allergies, asthma and other health reactions. Within 24 to 48 hours there should be little to no VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) left. While we can’t completely guarantee that no child or adult will react, low VOC paints are the best option for childcare and early learning centres. 
Suprepaint’s crew can provide painting services for Brisbane childcare and early learning centres under construction, reporting to the site managers and foremen. Our team are highly experienced and qualified professionals with experience on construction sites. If this is the case, we will operate during regular hours.
We primarily use Haymes, a top-quality Australian paint brand designed for local weather conditions. We also use other top-quality painting products such as Dulux, provided that we can ensure they produce a low VOC coating for the childcare. 
Our paints are available in all colours and can be tailored to suit the colours of the childcare centre’s own branding, or for specific moods and atmospheres in the different rooms. If you’re not quite sure what colours to choose, we can help lend our expertise to make it easier for you to decide what colour and finish you want. 
Surepaint has an extensive business insurance policy to cover any liabilities. In the rare case that there is an incident you can have peace of mind knowing that we’re covered.
Depending on the specific surface area, your commercial childcare centre’s new paint job will last up to 10 or more years. Interior walls in high traffic areas that get touched a lot might need a refresh every 3 to 5 years on areas such as around light switches, hallways or parent and guardian sign-in systems.
