My daughter has been going to this centre since she was 5 months old and she is 5 now. The educators are so welcoming and the centre has a warm homely feel. They use Story park to post daily blogs about what the children have done for the day, it's great to start conversations with my daughter about what she has done for the day on our drive home.
My daughter has been attending this centre for a while now and to say I am pleased is an understatement. The building as a whole, is amazing. It's big and bright with seperate rooms for each age group with play spaces and experiences set up accordingly as well as beautiful yards for their outdoor play. The management at this centre is excellent, they are always there to answer any questions I might have and go out of their way to make sure everything runs smoothly for families. The Educators throughout the centre are amazing and friendly, I see a lot of smiling faces daily when we arrive at the centre and they always make my daughter feel welcome. Drop offs are easy as she is familiar with the Equators and will willingly go to them and then off to explore. She absolutely loves attending the centre and that's due to all the staff and their hard work that they put in every single day. Thank you so much for all that you do for my daughter.
