We are new to Headstart after moving to the area. My son had been in care for two years at a facility we loved, so we were apprehensive to relocate him. I needn't have worried. WE LOVE HEADSTART CARNEGIE! My son has slotted in beautifully. He is making loads of new friends, and loves his new educators. We love how engaged he is by his educators. Our second child starts next month, and we know he is in great hands. Thank you to the team at Headstart Carnegie.

We’ve been at the centre for nearly 3 years now and can not fault it. There is very little staff turnover which is excellent and all the staff are lovely, our son adores them. We’ve even moved further away from the centre and have others closer to us now but we are so happy with Headstart Carnegie we wouldn’t even consider leaving.
