My kids absolutely love going to Milestones. The staff are warm, caring, consistent and calming. The activities are so creative- from obstacle courses to science experiments to baking. So happy here.
Our son has been attending here since he was 14 months old and has excelled in a way I never thought possible. He loves going everyday and has a big smile for his educators and Fiona as soon as he gets there. I love the variety of activities they have for him everyday and the care that they give him.
Everyone there are fantastic with the kids and make you feel very comfortable. The centre is clean and activities are fun and engaging. We highly appreciate all of the support and service that this team provides to the community. I would recommend this school to anyone in the area. :)
Been sending my daughter here since the end of last year, all staff are very friendly and welcoming. My daughter is delayed in her speech, at home we are teaching her some sign language to communicate and the centre has done some training with sign language to accommodate for her which has been a big relief for me knowing that they can communicate with her using sign language. Fiona loves listening to parents with ways of bettering the centre to accommodate to the kids she has in care. I love that my daughter loves going in and socialising with everyone, she is always happy to walk into the centre.
My daughter has attended this facility for over a month and I could not be any happier and thankful for this amazing group of teachers and wonderful staff. My child attended a few different childcares before landing at this amazing place. She has thrived since the moment of enrolment. She has learnt so much already and is happy to be at a place where you can clearly see she enjoys and loves. She is 16 months old and was and still is quite a shy timid girl and she has blossomed in every possible way.
I owe so much to the amazing staff at this incredible place!!! The transition has been seem less and the staff are ALWAYS so helpful and supportive; not just to my daughter. But also to me with me calling and asking lots of questions and anything I want answered there is nothing they won’t do for my daughter or family. The centre is clean and interactive with so many stimulating things for the children to do. There is always exciting food choices and activities for the children to do through the days! Truly I can not recommended this facility anymore than saying - give it a go, I’m sure you won’t regret it!!

In January 2012 the National Quality Framework (NQF) came into effect across Australia.
The purpose of the NQF is to improve and standardise the quality of child care through a range of measures including better staff to child ratios, higher staff qualifications and an assessment and rating system designed to promote continuous improvement.
Under the NQF child care services are assessed and rated against the National Quality Standards (NQS).
The NQS measures the quality of early childhood education and care in Australia. It will cover
most long day care, family day care, preschool/kindergarten and outside school hours care services.
Under these standards child care services will be assessed and rated against the seven quality areas, 18 standards and 58 elements that make up the NQS.
