“Beautiful staff, great centre and is clean and organized. Thanks girls!”
“All educators are fantastic with very little staff changeover in last 3 years so my children have got to know staff well. Am very happy with the organisation of the centre and the care of the children and the feedback given to parents during the day on observation and progress of children and their learning via emails. The program provided for the +3 children to prepare them to the lead up to kindy was great for my son who is now at kindy this year.”
