I have had such a wonderful experience with this centre for over 5 years now. The educators and staff are incredible! They have always acted professionally whilst also making the centre such a welcoming and loving environment. We will be sad when we no longer require the service.

Everyone at McKenzie street have been so welcoming and accommodating since the daycare we where using had to close unexpectedly. Very appreciative of how easy they’ve made the transition for my daughter!

Such a great service. The educational needs of my children are met. Their social and emotional day to day relationships with educators and children have been nothing but fantastic. There is always a beauty voice on the other end of the phone. And the staff are extremely accommodating. My children love the natural outdoor play areas and always look forward to going.

We are so lucky to have our girls attend Mackenzie St Daycare. The educators are loving, caring and professional and we are very happy with the level of communication we receive.

Very happy with the care and service provided at Nurture One Wonthaggi. My daughter has been enrolled for 2 years and all the carers have made her feel welcome and safe. The centre was fantastic during Covid - putting in extra precautions for keeping kids safe and healthy whilst providing much needed stability and socialisation for my daughter during isolation. Meals are healthy and the outdoor play area is open to all the rooms so the children get to socialise with kids outside their age group. This has really helped develop my daughters confidence and language skills.

Management unprofessional, and very quick to make false obligations against families they don’t particularly like.

Tara Davies image
My daughter loves nurture one McKenzie street and so do I! Such friendly and happy staff and so welcoming! My daughter looks forward to going here and is always talking about the staff and children. Her confidence has grown so much! Highly recommend 😊
