Our daughter loved Rachel's Place, and so did we! She especially loved all the outdoor play and bush kindy. As parents, we always knew the care, support, and love of the children was always the number one goal of the service. I also felt supported and knew the staff were there to guide me through any difficult patches. Rachel's Place put families and children first.
Rachel's Place is fantastic, my son loves coming here! There is a real sense of community, and Rachel and her team are attentive and nurturing to each individual child, understanding their needs and responding accordingly. There is always a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, and the dynamic of mixed age groups sees the kids learning so much from each other. I highly recommend Rachel's Place as a positive caring environment for kids.
