I have been with gumnut more then 4 years. The Staff, Children and Families at Gumnut are awesome. The educators are great and supportive. Monalisa has been great and approachable centre director. Children here are always happy and engaged in meaningful learning activities. This is one of the best long day centres that I have worked for. I would highly recommended this centre to anyone who is looking for quality child care in St Leonard’s. I will miss Gumnut so much ♥️

This was the first daycare our twin sons have ever been in enrolled in & I cannot thank the wonderful educators & administrators enough for such a smooth transition. Our sons absolutely loved their time there as they were always well cared for & we were always kept up to date with what was happening. I have recommended this daycare to fellow colleagues & cannot rave about them enough! We will miss all the beautiful faces at CASS Gumnut Early Learning Centre & sincerely wish them all the best ❤️

My two boys have been attending this centre for a couple of years now! When I moved to St Leonards, i visited multiple daycares. Although there are many daycare centres in and around this area, I felt a sense of comfort and warmth at Gumnut at the first visit itself. We have been so happy with our childcare centre, the Director, MonaLisa, centre coordinator, Mary and the educators that have provided care to my kids, from Sonika, Sarah, Winnie, Chris, Charlotte, Hyun Suk, Rhiannon, Taeko to name a few, have been exceptionally great. My kids clearly feel the love and warmth from their teachers, which is invaluable as a parent. It is hard to trust others to care for your children when you wish as a parent you could do it yourself. I have been so happy with their care, and have watched my kids grow, develop and thrive. The teachers are very receptive to any concerns that I have had as a parent. Thank you for all that you have done for my family!

My daughter has been in this daycare since she was 10 months. She had a hard time being away from me but the teachers at CASS Gumnut were all very doting and attentive to my daughter's need. Now she thrives at their school and absolutely enjoys her time. Mona, the director, is always smiling and professional. The teachers are all approachable, caring and lovely. Highly recommend them!!

My son had been to this childcare for around 8 months now and he had a wonderful experience. The staff has been very responsive and acknowledging whenever there is any issue. More importantly, the level of flexibility and extra services that the staff has helped us with is tremendous.

Gumnet has been our second home in every sense. My daughter loves the teachers there so much that she goes there even after getting to school. Their preschool preparation is top notch with Ms HynSuk / Ms Charlotte / Ms Chris and all the other teachers. The centre is well managed and run by ever smiling Mona who is the most understanding director one can dream of a parent. She always has time for parents and listens to the concerns. In all gumnet is the place for parents who want to be sure the kids have lot of fun through learning. All the best to the team and I strongly recommend them.

My daughter Swara has been attending Gumnut since she was about 18 months till she started school. The educators and the carers have been extremely caring and helped her settle in as a baby. She has developed a affectionate bond with her educators. They have helped her grow emotionally and intellectually. Me being a full time mom never worried about her once i dropped her at Gumnut. The regular catch ups and feedback sessions helped us identify any issues with her development and addressing them in a timely manner. I am extremely thankful to the staff for all the care and effort!

Our little one is attending CASS Gumnut ELC- St Leonards for the past 2 years and she will be finishing her pre school this month. Initially when our daughter started she was very reserved and reluctant to go to preschool. However, within couple of weeks she started enjoying to go to preschool and never wanted to miss a day. All the credit goes to the teachers, who made her feel comfortable and safe. We never had to worry about her during her stay in the preschool. We also noticed lot of improvement in her activities like speaking, interacting, art work etc. I would also like to thank the admin staff for all the support rendered to us to accommodate all our requests, even though some of them were last minute requests.
