Our daughter has been attending Pelican Coburg since she was 11 months. This is her last year, as she is starting school next year. We are sad to leave, she has been in wonderful hands, from the nursery room, to the kinder room, Sophie has loved her time at Pelican. The staff are professional and caring. During this upside down, topsy turvy year, the staff at Pelican have been exceptional. I am a nurse, and had no issues sending my daughter here during the pandemic. She was safe, and well cared for. Thank you, and highly recommend this centre!
It is one of the best centres. The educators (Lauren & team) have really helped my Son learn and grow throughout his time At Pelican. Well equiped centre, always clean. I would really Like to thank the director (Tamara) and Steph for their roles. Rahul Oberoi
