I would definitely recommend Gizmos Family Day Care. My son has had a lovely time there 2 days/week from 3years to 5 years. The most remarkable thing about Gizmos is the quality relationships that he has formed with Miss Katie and various playmates. One distinct advantage I see Gizmos having is that Katie’s Mum, Adrienne, has been able to fill in sometimes when Katie’s unavailable (eg.sick/appointments/some holidays) or just taking a lunch break. Having other adults inside the house is reassuring if accidents should happen. Katie has also been able to arrange some holiday relief cover by her colleagues. The setup of Gizmos is also a great asset. Having a separate entrance, own bathroom, designated play space separate from the main house and flat grassy outdoor space is very professional. A clean, well-resourced, air-conditioned large space is much appreciated. Having mixed ages from 2-5years means the kids can mostly play together and activities are similar. My son has learnt from copying older ones and teaching younger ones. He has learnt lots of things from Katie I never thought he was capable of until he showed me. Now, he is well and truly school ready and confident. I have observed Miss Katie to be open to feedback and ideas of parents and incorporate these into the days play. It is clear to me that my childs individual interest sometimes lead the play activities that day be that a favourite book from home, a favourite animal of the moment or how to draw rockets! In 2 years, my son has only missed a few days due to sickness. I attribute this partly to the hygienic environment and practices at Gizmos. My assumption that there should be less illness in a small group has proved accurate. Mostly, I am grateful to Miss Katie for the loving personal attention she gives my son. She is mature beyond her years and a well-balanced young lady with oodles of energy for the kids. I feel confident leaving my precious cargo in her hands and will happily send my next child there when shes old enough.
