I highly recommend Kids at Play to any families looking for an ECE within the surrounding suburbs. My daughter is nearly 2 and been there since 7mths, and loves it. The manager, U2 and O2 areas supervisors have been there almost since it started and in general has a low staff turnover. Kids at Play is one of only a few Community ECE's (not a private business run for profit) and one of the reasons I chose it, alongside being the best of 7 ECE's I visited across many factors. It is run by a Parent Governance Committee alongside the Manger, of which I'm on and can thus confirm this ECE is extremely well run, the children and parent community are at the centre of everything, there is strong involvement of the families in centre decisions made, social events, working bees, fundraising.
If you are looking for a caring community-run ECE for your littlie - KAP is excellent
