When looking for a good daycare, I took 6 or 7 different tours, and Margaret Street stood out by a mile for its warmth and friendly staff. From the outside, it didn't look too exciting (it's right in the middle of high-rise buildings, next to Wynyard station) but as soon as you walk inside, you forget that you're in the middle of the city. It's small and cosy (unlike most of the big daycares I toured), and the staff seem to know every single child by name. My daughter has now been going for nearly 3 months, and is loving it. (She started at about 10 months of age.) All the kids are happy, they eat fantastic food and learn things together. The staff are wonderful. I was originally dreading daycare, fearing I'd go back to work and worry about my baby all day - but that's never been the case. The educators have all been so kind, supportive, and they clearly love the kids. This daycare is one of a kind, and I'm so glad we found it.
I looked around at a number of day care centres before deciding on Margaret Street Early Learning Centre. It is close to Wynywrd Station so conveniently located, but more importantly, the staff are second-to-none. Larissa, Brie, Jess B and Anna in particular are absolutely wonderful. My son's face lights up when he sees any of these lovely ladies and they take such good care of him. I was very nervous about sending my son to daycare, given he was only 6 months old, but any fears I did have were soon allayed. The Margaret Street team take such good care of him and he is so happy. I love the daily updates I get as well - it's lovely to see the children interacting and learning day by day. Thanks Margaret Street Early Learning Centre team!
