Testimonials for Coomera Rivers Playschool:

Ricki Taylor

Coomera Rivers Playschool is a beautiful centre! My son went to Coomera Rivers for just over 2 years and I absolutely loved all of the staff members and directors. They are all so friendly, and kind. The educators truly love and adore all of the children, the education the educators teach has shown with how well spoken my son speaks, his communication and through his skills, such as fine motor skills which he has learnt.
The directors were so lovely and kind, always greeting both my son and I hello and goodbye each day.
Coomera Rivers Playschool ensures that the parents and children are welcomed and this is displayed through Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s day, Easter Parade and Christmas Carols.
My favourite thing about the centre was the way the educators displayed all of the children’s artwork throughout the year up on the walls, this made the classroom feel homely and my son was always so excited to point out which paintings were his.
The only reason we left Coomera Rivers Playschool is because we moved to the southern end of the Gold Coast.

I highly recommend Coomera Rivers Playschool if you live in the area. Your children will be loved, made to feel at home, excelling education and educators and directors who put their all into their work.
I really miss everyone at Coomera Rivers Playschool.


I am delighted to share my glowing review of the Coomera Rivers Playschool Early Learning Centre where both of my children have flourished under the attentive care of the dedicated staff.

From the moment we walked through the doors, we were greeted with warmth and kindness. The staff members are not only friendly but also incredibly professional, creating an environment that immediately put us at ease. Their genuine love for children is evident in every interaction, fostering a sense of trust and confidence in their abilities.

What truly sets this childcare center apart is the level of care provided. Each day, I am reassured knowing that my children are in capable hands. The staff go above and beyond to ensure the safety, well-being, and development of every child. From engaging educational activities to nutritious meals and plenty of outdoor play, they created a nurturing environment where my children could thrive.

Moreover, communication with the staff has always been exceptional. They keep us informed about our children's daily activities, milestones, and any concerns that may arise. It's evident that they prioritize open and transparent communication, which further strengthens the bond between families and the center.

In summary, I cannot recommend this childcare center highly enough. It's a place where children are not only cared for but also cherished, where they can learn, grow, and make lasting memories. My heartfelt thanks to the entire team for their unwavering dedication and commitment to providing outstanding care.

My daughter has attended Coomera Rivers Playschool since she was 6 months old.
Leaving my precious baby in someone else’s care for the first time made me so nervous but Coomera rivers playschool educators are absolutely amazing and had my trust completely after our first visit. They treat each child as if they are their own and build loving trusting relationships with all the children and families always making the children feel safe, secure and loved.

The office staff are incredible, friendly and very approachable and they go above and beyond to help in any way they can.

My daughter is almost 2 now and she absolutely loves coming to kindy she is so excited walking through the front door each morning.

Every day the children are provided with outstanding learning experiences. There is always so much fun to be had while learning at Coomera Rivers playschool.

We are so thankful we chose Coomera Rivers Playschool as our daughters Kindy and look forward to the next few years at this beautiful centre.

Rebecca Phillips

Seriously the best daycare ever! This is the third centre we have been to and hands down it is the best one. Very very low staff turnover which says it all really. Every single worker knows your child, greets them by name and tells you how their day had been. Management staff super friendly and helpful and my 4 year old loves the meals provided to the kids!

Kate Murrell

My children have attended Coomera Rivers Playschool since they were babies. Sending your baby to childcare was such a big decision and created some anxiety but from the minute we stepped into the doors at Coomera Rivers Playschool I knew we had found somewhere special.

The educators at this centre are incredible, they provide the children with amazing educational experiences and build strong relationships with the children and their families, ensuring the children feel safe and secure in their environment.

Attending Playschool has been an amazing start to my children’s education and we miss them dearly already! Every staff knows your child and greats them everyday with a smile on their face including the admin staff. I cannot speak highly enough of the Educators and Directors at this centre!

Alannah Blades

Staff are wonderful at Coomera Rivers playschool there always there to make sure your child feel comfortable have a chat with you and let you know how your child progresses. Love the outside for kids amazing for them to run around in the nature the plants the veggie gardens. Love all the tables the staff set up for the children they amaze me everyday with the ideas they come up with for the children's entertainment.

Coomera Rivers is amazing at including us parents in Mothers Day, Fathers day,Grandparents Day, Easter Events, Christmas and Graduation they are set up so amazing and are amazing events for us to be a part of.

My daughters have both attended and love it there. I would love to thank the ladies so much who have been apart of my daughters early child hood journeys. Thank you to the ladies at the front desk as well if I have had any concerns they are quick and prompt always there to say hello and are kind. We will miss you after our youngest graduates this year thankyou Coomera Rivers.

Krystal B

I can’t speak more highly of the care and education my little one has received since starting in the nursery at Coomera Rivers Playschool. From the moment we walk in we are greeted by name by the admin team and staff. They are supportive, caring and professional and always willing to go above and beyond. The educators are nurturing, knowledgeable and like a second family. They provide engaging indoor and outdoor sensory activities daily and always provide parents with photos and an update that we can use to lead a conversation with our little one. As a teacher myself, this centre stood out when I started looking for its educational approach, amazing facilities, nature-based play environment and welcoming staff. My daughter loves daycare day and her beautiful educators!

Carly Egan

My son attended from 3 years old and he graduated this year and the difference Coomera Rivers Playschool made on my son was amazing. From a shy quiet boy to running into the classroom so excited to be there. He is leaving with so much knowledge and social skills, I can highly recommend sending your kids here!

Adam Peck

In our experience we could not have hoped for a better Early Childhood Learning Centre.
We had our Daughter attend Playschool Coomera Rivers from 6 months old right through till 5 years old leading into Prep.
Each and everyone of those years she attended we had fantastic educators who formed genuine relationships and cared for her far above what we would have ever imagined. Dropping her off everyday knowing how well she was looked after and treated made our 4.5 years a fantastic experience for us as parents of course for our daughter.
On top of this the administration staff were always amazing to deal with and took the time to greet everyone each morning. They were always easy to speak with and will be missed by us as much as the educators.
For this centre to year in and year out provide the very best experience across the board is a testament to everyone involved.
You have given our daughter the very best start to her education and for that we will forever be grateful.
We can’t believe this will be Koda’s final week with you and we will all be very sad to say goodbye.


My son attended Coomera Rivers Playschool for one year. This is my first child, and I was nervous about sending him to Kindi, and I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible, so I was late in sending him to Kindi. However, all of the teachers at Coomera Rivers Playschool are so professional and wonderful that I wish I had sent him there earlier when he was a baby. Honestly, I regret not sending him here since he was a baby. However, being able to attend here for just one year gave him a very important experience, and I am very grateful to all the teachers. He is now ready to go to elementary school. Thank you very much to everyone from the bottom of my heart. :)

Danielle Maxwell

Coomera Rivers Playschool is an exceptional centre, the staff go above and beyond every day making beautiful relationships with both children and families, always making that extra effort each and every day. I could not recommend Coomera Rivers Playschool anymore.

Hannah Sugarman

Absolutely thrilled with the childcare center! The staff are not just attentive, but downright amazing in creating a vibrant and secure haven for my little one. The variety of activities is like a daily adventure for my child, keeping them positively buzzing with excitement. The communication is top-notch, giving us a front-row seat to all the fun and learning. I can't express how confident and happy I am entrusting my child to this incredible team. If you want your child to have a blast while learning, this center is an absolute gem! Highly, highly recommend!

Milla Truscott

I can't say enough positive things about this early learning center! From the moment we walked through the doors, it was clear that the staff here truly care about the well-being and development of every child. The learning environment is great and the teachers are not only highly qualified but also incredibly patient, which has been awesome! The regular updates and open communication with the staff has also made us really confident that this is the right place for my child ❤️

Brodie Ryan

My daughter attended Playschool for 3 years and sadly had to leave due to moving suburbs. She absolutely loved it there and they have such a positive environment. They have so many activities and toys for the children to play with and do a great job at extending on the kids' interests. The staff are dedicated and hard working too. We have had issues in the past however once raised with management they have been solved with no problems. Highly recommend!

Erin Martin

Tiny Tennis has been working within the centre for many years and absolutely love coming here, as a contract worker that works in many ELC’s across the northern end of the Gold Coast Coomera Rivers Playschool has such a welcoming vibe and some of the most friendliest and knowledgeable educators and staff, they are always there to help while I’m working within the centre or even if it’s just a friendly ear.


My son has been attending Coomera Rivers Playschool for only a short time but in this short time he has flourished in so many aspects thanks to his lovely educators and support system. His confidence, learning, behaviour and personality has since come through and I am most proud of him. We wish we got longer with the Playschool family but he is now onto big school and with the wonderful support the staff have given him leading up to this, it will be hard to say good bye. Thank you for caring and loving Bodee with all your hearts and we wish you all the best in the future. 💛

Cooper Davidson

My daughter has been attending Coomera Rivers Playschool for the last year and I couldn’t be happier. The staff at the centre are warm and friendly and do such a wonderful job attending to her needs. The educators have gone above and beyond settling in my little one and nothing is a hassle. We felt welcomed and safe as soon as we walked in the door. Always greeted with a smile and nothing is ever too much trouble for the girls at the desk. The ECT teacher that my child had to grow with this year was very knowledgeable and has done a wonderful job getting us ready for school.
So grateful to have found such a wonderful, family orientated centre.
We will always highly recommend Playschool as an excellent centre.

Stephanie Stanton

Thank you to all the amazing staff at Coomera Rivers Playschool. Words can not express the gratitude and appreciation we have towards all of the staff for embracing Hudson's Type 1 Diabetes. It is such a huge learning curve and Miranda went above and beyond organising the necessary training for all staff to help Hudson's transition to Senior Kindy a smooth one. Hudson is thriving at the centre because he feels safe and trusts the staff with his management. As parents we feel so supported and at ease going to work, knowing he is in safe hands. We appreciate you all so much!

Nicola Cavers

Highly recommend this daycare centre. We have been coming here for 4 years now and couldn't think of a bad word to say. The educators are always happy and full of life, my children have always had the best relationship with them. Always lovely meals cooked. Communication is brilliant the ladies on the desk are extremely welcoming every morning and always there to help. Beautiful outside play areas. If you're looking for a new centre look no further, this place ticks every box.

Kimberly Wilson

We couldn't move on without leaving a review on the high quality services and staff at Playschool. My daughter was fortunate enough to attend for almost 2 years and spent time in 3 different rooms. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff went above and beyond to make my daughter smile and ensure she had a great day. I often found myself walking out smiling from the infectious energy of the staff who clearly love what they do. I always left with confidence that my daughter was in good hands. A review seems like such a small gesture but is our way of sincerely thanking all the staff that made us feel like family. We will miss our Playschool village but are happy with the knowledge another lucky friend will benefit from our spot. You guys are awesome!
