A long due review. My son is very attached to me and I was nervous to put him in a daycare. The ladies at Active Kids were amazing with the transition . They are attentive, caring and always helpful. I would especially like to mention and thank Miss Teneal who went above and beyond to love, cuddle and make sure my son settled in well. <3 All the educators are lovely including Miss Dharanee and Miss Amy. The centre itself is clean, hygienic and has a homely feel. I am looking forward to be a part of the Active Kids family until my son starts school.

Active kid early learning Is an amazing school. I have 2 children who attend this center, 1 who is special needs. He has been going to this center for 11 months now, when he first started he couldn't say more then 5 words he was 3! Now he is talking in sentences they have done and amazing job with my 3 year old helping him learn and grow. The center director has also been an amazing help has worked with me when I have needed help. Would recommend the center to everyone

Incredible daycare. Exceptionally high standards in terms of care, health and safety, education & food quality. Great standards when it comes to different behaviors with the children also. The staff are very friendly and care about you and your family. If you ever have any issues they will address them straight away and make sure the problems are resolved. They are also very engaging with the children and always doing a wide variety of fun activities. They are never bored. My son has been going to this daycare (Centre 1) since he was 3 months old, he is now 4 years old. I have to move daycares to be closer to family to help us out and this has made me cry as I don't want to leave! Thank you all so much for helping me raise my son into the wonderful little person he is today.

I couldnt fault this daycare, the staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome at the centre. Im always updated on what my kids are doing and can call or email their teachers whenever i have a question. Love this centre and will be sad to leave when the youngest starts prep

Lauren Shiels image
They don’t even return phone calls regarding inquiring into putting your child in care. If they can’t even do that, I wouldn’t trust them with my child.
