My daughter started in the nursery at 8 months and settled in beautifully from the beginning. She has really warmed to her teachers and I love that they are so lovely and caring with her. What I love about the nursery is that the teachers can tell you straight away how your child's day was and share little stories of the interesting things your child did during the day without having to refer to the day sheet. I love the genuine affection and interest each and every teacher has with my child. I only wish I worked in this area when I had my elder daughter so that she could've experienced such a caring nursery environment. There's also no turnover in the staff since my child has been here which is always a good sign (especially if you love the teachers in the room). I'd highly recommend it to other families.
I visited many child care centres for my then 2 years old; Headstart was the only one that ticked all the boxes for me from our first visit. The staff were amazing with kids and the environment was welcoming not only to kids but to adults, all the food was cooked and made fresh daily at the centre and the educators was extremely helpful. Now my daughter is three and been in the centre for the past eight month, she couldn't be happier or even more excited about going to the centre every day. The service and education has maintained at the highest level. I highly recommend Headstart Early learning Centre Bella Vista to all perspective parents.
