My daughter whom is now 5 has been attending St Mary's for the past 12 months. During her time at the centre (plus transitioning from another centre at the beginning of the year) we have experienced tremendous support from the director Angela and all of her teachers. The Centre is always clean, all the staff know you and greet you with a warm smile each morning and our daughter although excited about Prep in the new year is sad to say goodbye to the team and the centre chickens:) I highly recommend the centre and know that the daily activities and lesson plans put together have definitely provided her with the skills and confidence she needs for school next year.

My son who is 4 years old, has been attending St Mary’s for the last year, since his time at the centre I have seen Cooper develop through his speech and his creative analysis of situations. The centre is extremely clean and all the staff are very friendly and always happy. Each morning when I leave my son I know that he is in great hands. The activities and structured daily plans for each room has help Cooper develop into a little boy. I would highly recommend the centre to anybody.

After recently immigrating from the UK, we started our search to find a day care centre for our two girls.We are so pleased we found St Mary's! They have been wonderful in helping our girls adjust to the changes of moving country as well as attending day care. The director, Angela Mason, is very welcoming, supportive and puts you at ease from the start. Our girls love going to St Mary's and speak fondly of all the lovely ladies who care for them. We are so pleased at how quickly our girls settled at St Mary's and can't thank the ladies enough for helping our little ones feel welcome and part of the St Mary's family. Our eldest daughter starts school next year (2015) and I know she'll be sad to say 'Bye' to St Mary's.But her little sister will still be attending St Mary's for the next couple of years so she'll be chuffed to pop in and say 'Hello' to all the lovely ladies :)

My family has been going to St Mary's since we moved to the area 4 years ago. All 3 of my children have loved attending the centre and the welcoming, nurturing and community spirit makes drop offs a pleasure. My youngest 2 children have dairy allergies and the centre has been extremely accommodating with regards to allergy friendly food...even to the extent of having a 'dairy-free cupcake making day' to ensure my middle child felt included. I think that the clearest sign of a supportive centre, nurturing and compassionate carers and programs which facilitate and accommodate each child’s individuality - is that my children come home with smiles on their faces, speak of the fun they have had and the friendships they have formed with both children and carers.

My family has been with St. Mary's for 5 years now and couldn't be happier. Having worked in the childcare industry myself i found it very difficult to find a centre i was comfortable with but as soon as i walked in and met the staff and had a tour of the centre i new it was the centre for my boys. My youngest has and is having some behavioural difficulties and his teachers and especially the director angela have been nothing but amazing, supportive and so very helpful with him. They are a very caring and family orientated centre. You will not find any better out there.

My children commenced at St Mary's after we decided to transition them from family day care to enhance their social spectrum. Knowing we had made the right decision was instant. The Dirctor, Angela leads a team of nurturing, warm and engaged teachers who show a perfect balance of warmth, kindness, integrity and intellect. What a great start St Mary's is giving our children!

My son commenced care at St Mary's in 2007. My daughter began in 2011 and still attends in Kindy. In the 7 years that my children have attended St Mary's I have been very happy with their care. The Director at St Mary's spends a great deal of time getting a good balance in the rooms with the staff, always putting the children's needs first. In the 7 years that we have been there, there have been a few teachers that have taken maternity leave. The centre does a great job of transitioning new staff into rooms so that the children are happy and comfortable. I have always loved that the staff welcome me with a smile and after 7 years, I am very familiar with the staff as most of them have been there for that time also. They are kind, caring, approachable and honest. My children have formed very strong bonds with their teachers. I honestly believe that their teachers love and adore them, which is a nice feeling when you leave them to go off to work. When people ask me what I like about St Mary's, I tell them that a nurturing environment is the most important part of a childcare centre. When your children are happy and feel loved and supported, then, as a parent, you are also happy. St Mary's has provided this environment for my children.

My son attends St Mary's, in the junior room. When searching for a child care facility in our area, I inspected every facility and St Mary's was the friendliest, cleanest and most professional of all. I immediately joined the wait list. When the time came for our son to begin at St Mary's he had a difficult transition into childcare and St Mary's as a centre supported our family in making the transition as easy as possible. Our son has a speech and language delay and possible further developmental delays, the staff are wonderful in supporting his development and communicating with us about his progress and ways to assist him. The care and compassion they have shown our family has been paramount in his advances. They even went as far as to have his speech pathologist attend the day care for an inservice for the staff and other families to become educated and up to date with best practices. St Mary's provide a nurturing and caring environment for all the children. The staff at St Mary's are all supportive kind and well educated and you only have to walk in the door to see that they form quality relationships with all the children. St Mary's and the wonderful staff are an important part of our family life and our son is thriving after attending their facility.

My son has been at St Mary's for over 2 years and I have been extremely happy with the care he has received from all the educators in all the rooms he has been in. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they always have time to discuss my son and his care with me. There is a lovely, caring family environment as well that comes from the staff that work there. My son has learnt & developed so much since going to St Mary's and looks forward going everyday. He even asks to go on the weekends!

Our experience with St Marys Catholic Child Care has been of a loving, nurturing and a caring environment. It is always nice knowing we are leaving our children with such professional and friendly staff who make us feel like we are the only family in the centre. We were most impressed with the way they adapt their curriculum to each childs individual milestones and developmental needs. We would highly recommend St Marys Catholic Child Care. For us this has been a priceless investment in the emotional, spiritual and educational development of our children.

My 2 1/2 year old has been with St Marys since the age of 5 months and our 11 week old will begin attending at 6 months. We have nothing but praise for the centre - it is very well run, the facilities are fantastic (the outside area and playground has just been completely renovated) and the staff are lovely. The centre really cares for their families and has shown over the past two years that they will do everything possible to accommodate any requests we have had. We particularly appreciate the excellent and prompt communication from the centre whenever any children are sick with anything infectious so we know what to look out for, with newsletters or general updates about what the centre is up to. Our eldest has also had some behavioural issues recently and Angela the Director has been wonderful and has really been proactive in working with us to find positive solutions to assist our child. We would not want to send our children anywhere else.

My 3 year old attends St Mary's Childcare Centre. My first impression of the centre was of a warm and supportive environment, and I have not been disappointed. The carers and admin staff are all extremely professional, friendly and caring. My daughter suffers with epilepsy and has a language delay. I have seen my daughter thrive since attending the centre and the support she receives has contributed to her language coming forward. The centre have been extremely proactive in taking steps to support my daughter from securing inclusion support (an extra carer in my daughters room so that she receives any additional support she needs without detracting from the care other children need) to giving her a cuddle if she's teary at drop off time. The centre do a wide range of activities with the children and my daughter always tells me she had fun, sings me songs she has learnt and tells me bits about her day. The facilities are excellent for every age group and the meals provided are varied and well balanced. I was nervous about my child attending kindy because of her medical history but I now have no regrets. I feel very happy and lucky that my daughter has a place at the centre and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality childcare.

My family have had nothing but a positive experience from St Mary's Childcare Centre over the last 12 months. My son has attended the nursery room from 12 months old and is extremely happy every day he arrives at 'kindy'. The carers and administrative staff are extremely professional and approachable. They made and continue to make every effort to make our son feel comfortable in his environment whilst enjoying nutritious and yummy food. The facilities are fantastic, especially with the brand new outdoor play area. Our son loves the ladies that take care of him and always feels safe and loved while in their care. We especially appreciate the time they take each day to update us on what he's been up to that day and different things that have happened. We would recommend St Mary's to anyone looking for quality and caring childcare.

Hi there, I have had two children attend St Marys and I honestly can't soeak highly enough of the centre. My son has attachment issues when we first joined which were quickly worked through with the help of the staff and he ended up having such an awesome experience there. My little girl looks forward to her days there and comes home talking of all the things she has done in the day. The centre has recently had the outdoors landscaped and its kid oaradise. The staff- ah the lovely staff well what can I say... Every single person who works there clearly loves their job and of course the children. I feel like they are my extended family who I can go to in times of need or upset. If you're considering child care then please go and see the lovely people at St Marys. I wouldnt trust my children to be anywhere else. Sinead

I have been with this centre for 7 years and will be sending my kids there for the next 5 years. I love the family oriented environment. The staff are fantastic and engaging. The staff really enjoy time with my girls and it shows on their faces and my girls faces. My daughters always love coming to St Marys CCC each day and sometimes prefer to stay because of all the fun they have at there. I have had experience with each room throughout the centre from nursery to kindy and could not recommend highly enough a better child care centre.
Joy Turnor wrote:
My daughter absolutely loves being at St Marys. She is continuously engaged in activities and the staff have always acted in a safe and professional manner. I feel that my daughter is gaining a wholesome early childhood education at St Marys Catholic Child Care. I highly recommend it to all families.

My experience with St Mary's childcare centre has only ever been positive. The director runs a well organised, friendly centre and the staff are all such lovely people genuinely interested in the wellbeing of the children they care for. My two year old daughter has anaphylaxis so initially I was very nervous to leave her in the care of another, however all centre staff, and in particular the staff in my daughters room have put my mind at ease knowing that firstly, how seriously they take my daughters allergy and secondly that they are well trained in how to deal with an allergic reaction in an emergency situation. My 5 month old baby has also recently started in the nursery and I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and down to earth staff in that room - I hated the idea of leaving my baby at day-care until I met the girls who run that room. I would encourage anyone considering day-care in the area to visit and have a look first hand.
Daniel Prunty wrote:
Both my children have attended this centre and have been extremely happy. All the staff are genuinely friendly and caring and helpful. The centre has accommodated the days we need and tried hard to help when we have needed extra care at short notice during family difficulties. My oldest has now left and started prep for which he was well prepared socially and emotionally. I would recommend St Mary's child care to all.
Catherine Coppard wrote:
I have had 3 of my children attend St Mary's, after so many other child care centres. St Mary's is by far the best Centre on the Coast. I cannot recommend it more highly. My children are so happy and content at the Centre, the staff are so wonderful, they have become apart of our family. Nothing is ever an issue. From teaching my kids to hold a spoon to learning the alphabet they have gone above and beyond. I am extremely happy with the Centre and suggest anyone looking for a Centre on the coast to go in and speak with Angela as you will not look back.
