For us Infant home is the best
This is our 4th year at The Infants Home Ashfield, a centre that really focuses on the kids in their care. From Teachers who sit on the floor playing dinosaurs with kids, to Room Leaders who check in regularly with parents about the children's developmental, social & emotional well being, the kids really are at the centre of thinking. From the toddler's room, through to the 2-3 year room, and now into the 4-5 year room, we've been pleased in each, and if we ever had had any concerns, they have been addressed with a seriousness that as parents, is always appreciated. We've stayed with the centre despite moving further away from it, as the stability it's provided is invaluable. As parents, it's a great place, and for kids, it's a fun & loving place, with the right balance of routine & play.
