About Pademelon Press

The mission of Pademelon Press is to publish and distribute quality Australian early childhood teacher resource and reference books to assist teachers and carers in their task of educating and caring for children.

Pademelon Press was created in 1990 by Rodney and Carmel Kenner, who are two of the founders of The Book Garden, Australia's largest supplier of books and related materials to the early childhood community, which itself was founded in 1980. Pademelon Press is located in New South Wales, Australia. The current owner is Alison Moodie. Alison's aim is to publish quality books that make a difference in the lives of children and their educators and carers.


The aim of Pademelon Press is to build up a library of essential quality and developmentally appropriate resources covering all areas of early childhood education and care.


With over thirty titles already in print and several more due under production, we are well on our way to achieving this aim. As well as publishing original Australian books we actively seek out the best and most appropriate resources from around the world, especially from the United States and the United Kingdom.


As a result we are the Australian and New Zealand distributor for fourteen of the best publishers of early childhood and outside school hours care resource books. We also represent the Australian publisher Peppinot Press, the publisher of Rapunzel's Supermarket and It's Not a Bird Yet.


Pademelon Press wholesales to bookshops and also sells directly to the public. Please visit our website for a comprehensive list of books available for purchase


If you are an academic, educator or practitioner with many years of experience and you are interested in writing an early childhood teacher resource book or textbook we would love to hear from you. Simply call us or e-mail and we will be delighted to send you a copy of our proposal guidelines.
