This includes visits to the local shops, cafe and the Gore Hill Oval.

My daughter has been loving daycare and has learned so much in the short time that she has been a part of the centre. The staff is friendly and extremely forthcoming with information about her day and the overall experience we have with the nursery team at St Leonards is extremely positive.

I've had my child here for 3+ years. All the staff and management are amazing and deliver above and beyond. The facilities are great, and offer options that i dont see in any other day care in the area. Also want to highlight, the kitchen staff in making the extra effort on birthdays and special events, and the extra effort the educators and management make to highlight all different types of cultures.

An excellent care with amazing team. My boys have been going to this center for more than a year and never had a dull day. Their days are filled with activities and both really enjoy going there. The team lead by Jess knows their stuff and lovely people. They are like a family to us!!!

I've had two children attend this centre and the experience has been completely different. My older child enjoyed his time there and was offered great love, however, there were areas of concern, specifically, his preparation for Primary School. While my younger child has experienced the same sense of care, over the course of the last 18 months the staff have created an innovative learning strategy and engaging space. She is 100% school ready as well as being empowered for starting Big School. The centre is always clean and immaculately maintained, while staff are motivated and excited to see the children each morning. Thanks to all the staff and families who have been through this journey with us.

My child has been attending OAC for the past 18 months and I can see the incredible impact this centre has had on my child. She loves attending her 3 days/week and constantly talks about how much fun she has at 'kindy' as well as her 2 besties. The variety of activities and responsiveness of staff is outstanding - highly recommended!

My daughter has been in their care for over 3 years now and I couldn't be happier about their service. Jess is a fabulous director who always listens to our concerns. The educators at the service are phenomenal and my daughter has thrived so much in their care. Love everything about the centre!

Great centre, my daughter has been attending for 2 years. It is always clean with an array of different activities. The staff are always very responsive and my daughter runs into them each morning. The director is lovely and always makes time to chat and answer any questions that I have.

I have previously given 1 star for the poor service. They have been dramatically improved after the new center manager. Rating as 4-star, well deserved
