Fantastic child care centre!!! They have made it easy to drop my 3 daughters off over the last 7 years, my girls absolutely love attending and have developed the most beautiful caring relationships with all their teachers. Communication from the teachers & centre managers is amazing. They really make you feel welcome, staff are alway striving to do their best. Such a warm friendly environment, I highly recommend

My son has attended here since he was 18 months old and now still attends after school care and Vacation care. The educators go above and beyond expectations for his care and make him feel welcomed and loved. My youngest will be starting in the baby room soon and have full trust with the educators in there 🙂

My son (3.5yr) has attended BIELC for nearly 2 years and I am blown away by the support, care and education he is receiving. BIELC are providing a great base for his education, they incorporate his interests into their daily activities which I love. He has created some amazing bonds with not only the educators in his room and other children, but also with the support staff and management staff. The educators at BIELC have been prompt to bring any concerns (behavioral, health, development) to my attention and have worked with me on these things. I have also had to raise a few concerns and they have dealt with those issues sensitively and promptly. I count myself lucky that I have such an amazing centre to support me and my family.

Highly recommend this centre. Such caring, beautiful staff and the environment is incredible, really natural, lots of local art featured. Our son has attend for the last 3 years and has thrived here. We feel like part of a family at BIELC.

I don't know where to start with this place it is absolutely disgusting the way that the management treats their staff and clients I wouldn't send my animals to be cared for at this place absolutely disgusting Needs new management

Management is atrocious and unprofession

John Paul image
Don't sent your kids here not professional at all!

This place is amazing, the community spirit and support provided to children and their families is old style Oz country - you just don't find this kind of quality community care anymore. It is a hidden treasure we never imaged we would find on an offshore Qld island and it brings together the families and children from not just 1 island, but from 4 unbridged islands. This centre's service and its efforts to support myself and my children has gone above and beyond anything I've experienced on the Gold Coast. Shhhh! South East Qld's best kept secret. Love you guys! Thankyou.

Our little boy attends BIELC. I cannot rate this centre highly enough, the staff are incredibly caring and responsive to our sons needs and interests. We have watched him blossom since starting. His speech, social skills and general well-being have all improved since starting there at 15 months. We only wish he could have started at this centre first. This place is more than an early learning centre, it’s a place that creates community and a sense of belonging for island families.

Originally had posted a positive review of this place before management showed their true colours. Decided to edit my review to meet my current views. The centre’s Group Leaders and Assistants work extremely hard & care for the children with all their hearts; it’s just sad to know they are manipulated, unsupported and treated like dirt by management whilst expected to work to the highest standard. Best wishes to all the Educators who are currently employed there. You guys are awesome & deserve the best.
