As first time parents and new to the daycare scene we felt a lot of stress around choosing only the best for our daughter. We are so happy that we found Thornton ELC. Our daughter has been attending for 6 months now and she is learning and growing in leaps and bounds with the help of her educators. The educators are all kind, caring and attentive. You can really tell they care for your child and their development. Our daughter loves the educators and is always so excited when we drop her off. We love Thornton ELC!!

My son loves attending Daycare and the staff are fantastic.

Unfortunately this centre was a horrible experience for my family. Director changes almost every couple of months, staff turnover and their financial management is the worst I’ve seen. They would take thousands of dollars at a time sporadically then revert back to weekly, then fortnightly without notice. With constant change in directors it was impossible to get any consistent messages. The end of year report on my kids was missing 6 whole months of activity, hardly meets basic standard of legislative requirements. Then, two years after we left, we get a random bill for $300!! Obviously with time passed it’s impossible to reconcile the debt, so they threaten with debt collectors if it’s not paid. Not to mention we were always direct debit, so why didn’t they take the excess $300 at the time? Who knows!! Good riddance.

I recommend Thornton ELC :) Our son has been going to Thornton ELC since he was 5months old, now soon to turn 3. The centre has come a long way since we first started there and did have a few issues with staff changes and multiple directors previously. The last couple of directors and the current Director are awesome and have done so much for the centre. My son loves going to daycare and thrives there. The staff are lovely and have always had a great connection with our boy. They are happy to listen to any issues or questions I have and respond as soon as they can.

My son has been attending for about 4 months and I have found the centre to be fantastic. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. I get daily photos and updates it’s been great. I would definitely recommend Thornton ELC.

My little boy has been attending this centre for almost 12 months now and we couldn't be happier. The staff are friendly and approachable and always happy to help with issues or questions and my so happy to attend and happily waves goodbye. Definitely will not regret sending your little ones here.

We have had a fantastic experience with ELC Thornton. Everyone is lovely & our son loves going every day. Highly recommend them! We are sad to be leaving due to relocating to QLD. Hope our next centre is just as amazing.

Really poor. They went through 3 different directors in less than 6 months, and the educators were forever changing too. A high turnover is the last thing you want for your children in care, they need consistency.
