    • The teachers are so caring and lovely and they are enthusiastic about the programme and activities they provide for the children. The amount of effort they put into the children through day to day care, lesson planning, portfolios, family events, trips, communication is outstanding. Our children always look forward to going to the centre and it has been a positive place of learning and love for our family.

    • We’ve been working on my boys daycare drop off’s, as I’ve been pretty sick and been in & out of hospital he’s been very attached to his mama and won’t let me out of his sight so the drop off’s are an absolute nightmare for me! BUT with lots of perseverance and help from the daycare this morning there were no tears!!! His teachers tell me he’s back to that cheeky little boy and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you soo much Jo Henry, Tahlita Benade, Wendy and Kirsty Le Couteur (for showing him photos when he bugs u!) I really appreciate your guys efforts with him! Has really helped us when times are tough!
