An Amazing Centre with caring staff and ativities for all children's interests! The Preschool rooms "You Can Do It" Program has helped my 4 yr old manage his BIG emotions, increased his confidence and encourages him to get a long with others. My 2.5yr old loves the messy play and enjoys the singing, dancing and climbing activities she gets to do every day! My children receive up to 5 meals throughout the day, nappies are supplied and the extended opening hours (7am-6pm) are needed for our busy family! I Highly recommend MCEEC!

We are so happy that we send our children to MCEEC! The staff are friendly and keep us well informed about our children's day and interests. The centre supplies Nappies and Food which helps us A LOT! The children have so many activities indoors and outdoors and are learning amazing things everyday! The quality educational programs and interactive play based learning is fantastic!

My wife and I are so happy we chose MCEEC to care for our two children! We are so impressed that every staff member is friendly and easy to talk to. They provide updates regulary about what our children are doing, what interests them, how well they achieving tasks and give us so many ideas on how to help them if they are struggling with anything. They supply nappies and food which has helped our family A LOT!! And they have extended hours (7am-6pm) which is perfect for our work times. The children really thrive here! They have so many play options inside and outdoors. Both our children started in the infants room and are progressing through the three different educational rooms for their age. Our eldest is 4 and off to school next year and he is busy learning how to manage his emotions, how to be a supportive friend, he is learning Spanish, about the human body and planets and dinosaurs and Australian animals and....I could go on and on! The range of things they learn is incredible! We are constantly amazed at how clever these little people are! Our 2 yr old is also having a great time! She is busy playing in the sand pit, climbing the tyre tower, exploring the paints and goop and mud and really enjoys getting as messy as possible (which we don't do as much of at home)!! The centre is warm and inviting and the director and her staff are continuously updating their skills.The centre has a committee run by parents who are the voice for all parents as to the best care of our kids! My wife and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Maryland Care and Early Education Centre! Your children will be extremely well looked after!

My son started at ‘his’ Centre when he was two years old. While very interested in life and outgoing at home, he is the first child and was extremely shy at school. The educators began with a goal to make him feel like he belonged at the centre. They always supported me with the uneasy drop offs and getting him engaged in his morning play. This year the educators have given him a leadership role in his class which has boosted his self esteem. He is growing in confidence daily due to the experiences that he is continually provided at the centre. He has made numerous friends and always talks about the games he plays, the books he reads and the songs he learns with all of his friends and teachers. The centre provides nappies, food and QUALITY education through play. Would not go anywhere else!

A wonderful community centre that is a fantastic open warm friendly place. I looked at all of the centres in Maryland and fletcher and this one is by far the best. A small centre with amazing staff that really care for your child and family. My 2yo absolutely loves it and is thriving there and I’ll be sending my little one when she’s 1. Highly recommend this wonderful centre.

We've had three children attend this centre over the past seven years and we highly recommend it. For that time a stable group of lovely educators have provided excellent early childhood education. The preschool program has been great for each of my children in the years before they started school, and the centre has a great relationship with the public school across the road, running library visits regularly and other visits throughout the year. MCEEC is a community based centre, with all funding returned to the centre, which was also important to us in making our childcare decision. I would not hesitate to send any child from 0-6 years here for an amazing childcare experience.

The teachers and educators offer a full Pre-School program with long day care hours (big win!). Its been great watching my little one grow and develop new skills and friendships over the past 4 years as we progressed through each room. The wonderful staff put so much time and care into each child and provide informative reports (including images) detailing the learning outcomes my child has achieved or is working towards. So happy we are with MCEEC.
