What the parents say

My daughter Max who is 18mths has been attending E&D Parramatta for almost a year now. I’m so delighted with this centre and I love how the staff and management love my child. The educators are attentive to her needs. She has learnt so much during her time and they have really helped her with her social and educational milestones. I’m always being told how smart and clever my daughter is and I have to thank Explore & Develop Parramatta as I know that she gets a lot of these skills from her time at daycare.

Bianca - parent 

Explore & Develop Parramatta is a highly organised and professionally run long day education and care centre. The physical surroundings of the centre are immaculate, organised, colourful and highly engaging for our children. This centre owner (Irene Vidaic) prides herself and commitment to having happy kids, who are having fun whilst learning and engaging with their world.

The outdoor play area has a veggie patch and water features that encourage children to make, think and play whilst learning. The teachers are highly dedicated and clearly love their jobs – they have a strong connection with the children at the centre and close relationships with parents make them efficient at handling all matters. I have used this centre for the last 7 years and the quality of service, surroundings, innovative ideas just keep getting better… Kindaloop is used with great success, allowing parents to see what their child gets up to everyday – another effective way to communicate with parents. This place has helped me raise my children, whilst I have gone to work.

Maria - parent 

I have both of my children in Explore & Develop (Parramatta) and I could not be happier with how they are developing. From the moment I started I felt at ease and comfortable and that’s because I can tell the staff are dedicated and passionate about early childhood development, you can feel this by speaking to the educators, the engaging environment of the place and the communication to parents of their daily routine. The management of the centre is professional and empathetic– I have two kids with food allergies and knowing that the centre takes this seriously and has procedures in place – this puts me at ease. Most importantly for me is that the centre sets the right balance between education and fun – I know my kids always have a good day when they’re in there!

Hui - parent 

We recently moved our son to Explore & Develop after hearing much about the quality of care and education it delivers. It is indeed a centre that leaves every parent feeling safe and satisfied after dropping off their child. Our eldest daughter constantly complains that we discovered Explore & Develop after she had started big school. From a parent’s perspective,I feel thrilled every week to find new ideas being explored in the centre. There is always something happening, something new, something worth stopping and checking!
