My children love Macedon Child Care Centre. Its obviously important to the staff to build good relationships with the children and families. A small centre with a focus on families, the girls have always been happy to have my children stay with each other after drop off when they first started and see each other if they wanted to during the day. They may not have the budget of the big national centres but they provide an awesome service and my children are very happy there. I love that we are always made to feel welcome and my children feel loved and comfortable.
