The staff at Steel Street are always open to my child's needs and my wishes for my child. My son has been attending the centre for the last 2 and a half years and has been safe, secure and supported by the caring staff throughout the rooms. Steel Street not only has their designated room staff, but runs as a "family", I feel welcomed and appreciated in each and every room, not just my child's, and he knows all of the staff by name also! I would highly recommend this centre to anyone looking for child care or kinder as they run a program tailor made to your child, have more flexible hours than a kinder and run the same frameworks as an external kinder with the benefits of a child care centre! My son will definitely stay at Steel Street rather than go to external kinder.
