Care for Kids review
Thumbs up Would recommend to a friend
Colleen was my Granddaughter's day care Mum from when she was just under one until she went to school. She loved going to Colleen's and my daughter was at ease going to work knowing her baby was very happy and well cared for. On many occasions I collected my GD at the end of the day and I was extremely impressed with the way Colleen had set up her home to accommodate the children and the quantity & quality of educational toys and play equipment available to them. What I liked most about Colleen's day care was the family atmosphere. My GD and the other children were like brothers and sisters and it was obvious they all felt very much at home when they were there. I highly recommend Colleen to anyone looking for quality care for their children.

Both my boys have been going to Colleen for over 12 months & they couldn't be happier - they would go everyday if they could! Colleen's set up in her home is amazing & she is so kind & caring, she will do anything to help you out, you couldn't find a better carer to look after your children. ??
