As a first time mum I was sad to return to work. I wanted somewhere that would nurture my little ones development and to keep updated on her progress each day she attended. All the staff are so great at that. I love that I get to see all her meal she eats, how frequently her nappies are changed how long she sleeps and sunscreen applied, also her development activities she joins in, plus all the pictures and videos they take all in the app. Even when I pick her up they tell me how she is going each day overall. Its a struggle sometimes to even get her to come home she loves it so much here. I even got a call when she tripped over and had a small head injury. Got a detailed injury form with how it happened. The first aid they gave her and where it happened. I highly recommend Nido for anyone looking for the absolute best care for your little one.

My son started here at 5 months old and as a first time mum I was so nervous. The staff here have blown me away with their level of care for my son and for me as a mum! I love the real time updates on my sons day so I never have to wonder if he’s eaten, slept etc. He is so happy here and starts beaming as soon as he sees his educators! I am very glad I made the choice to tour Nido as I felt that sense of belonging for our family instantly. As well as the lovely staff, the centre is gorgeous as well! Such high quality resources and environments for my son to grow in. Thank you Nido Pennington!

My grandchildren attend Nido early school at Pennington. I love hearing about the things they get up to. The app used is in real time and I can log on and see how their day is going, the wonderful activities they get to enjoy and see photos of them. I live overseas yet I feel like a part of the community Nido Pennington have created. I was lucky enough to visit the centre prior to its opening on my last visit, it’s beautiful, modern, bright and fantastic facilities! My grandson is 4 years old and is so inspired, he loves nature and told me he held a real lizard and cuddled a rabbit, after seeing pictures and reading about it, Nido had organised the nature education centre to visit. Thank you to all the wonderful educators who cuddle and care for my grandbabies! I feel really assured that they are happy and well looked after.

My great niece and great nephew attend this centre and it is always a thrill for me in the school holidays when I can go visit and collect them from this centre. The environment is so engaging for the children, the staff are caring and attentive and it is obvious to me this is a great fit for them. Being involved in education myself, albeit with older children, it is wonderful to see the many opportunities being presented from a young age with everyday learning in the areas of collaboration, communication, teamwork, sustainability and early literacy and numeracy skills. My great nephew was able to explain many facets in relation to NAIDOC celebrations this week as well as his regular communication I hear from him about friendships, A and B choices, his love of books & the learning he engages with weekly, caring for others and understanding the world around him. Thank you to the team for providing this opportunity for them both. See you next school holidays.

I cannot recommend Nido Pennington highly enough. Both of my grandchildren have attended/are attending Nido Early School and both have always been so happy, well cared for and always keen to share their experiences with me. The Educators and Management are so approachable and nothing is ever to much trouble. Everything is so modern and child friendly. Such a pleasant change to have a wonderful environment for the children to learn and grow in. 😊👍

My son and I are so in love with Nido. Everyday we are welcomed with smiles and kind words. It honestly feels like family. The educators are attentive and caring. I love walking into the Center in the mornings and everyone is singing and dancing together or playing with the variety of different set ups they have for the toddlers to interact with. I couldn’t imagine leaving my son anywhere but in the care of our Nido family. I often have to bribe my son to leave at the end of the day because he’s so happy playing and spending time with the educators/friends. I have referred 2 of my friends to Nido at Pennington, and from what I hear they both absolutely love Nido as much as we do. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ❤️

We've been part of the Nido family for almost a year now. We moved here after my daughter became unsettled at her previous centre, and since then she has excelled and loves her daycare. Recently I've had the privilege to work in the kitchen covering holidays and at the same time I got to know all the staff in a way I wouldn't have before. My heart couldn't be happier; I love this centre, all of the staff and kids and of course the management is fantastic. Not once did I feel like they worked differently because a parent is there. Thank you for everything you girls do and for always being there for us!!

Absolutely disgusted with Nido Early School at Pennington. My wife dropped my son this morning with one of the main carers and disgussed changes in milk and even handed a note with written instructions, enough time for the carer to see my boy and have a thorough handover. Wife then went to collect at approximately 5pm only to walk in and the first thing she sees is a huge haematoma and bruise the size of an egg on the left hand side of his forehead. The response was absolutely disgusting along the lines of oh we just assumed he was like that when he arrived today. This was noticed apparently in the morning and all day not one call or text to check the well being of this little man. The size and the bruise would have certainly caused distress to him at the time, and the shock to my wife was that bad she attended the Womens and Children's to ensure he was safe. No incident report no call no nothing, who the hell is looking after our children now days, are they even experienced, some look barely out of school. We expect a follow up with the director or someone in a senior position. NOT RECOMMENDED after thie experience.

Such a beautiful centre, when you walk in you can instantly feel the passion from all of the staff. New resources in a new building makes this feel like the perfect place for any child. The children are always smiling too which I think is always a great way to tell how successful somewhere is!
