Baby Space is a genuine preschool where respectful and reciprocal relationships are at the forefront of everything they do. The staff are caring and ready to listen and help. They put our child's best interests at the centre of their practice and always offer feedback on their day. We would recommend Baby Space in a heartbeat!

BabySpace has been wonderful for our daughter. She loves going there and they have just a great feel and vibe. My daughter is outside everyday (except in bad weather) and she just loves it. They also have a garden, I love that my daughter gets to experience this safe and educational place. The teachers are so supportive and always tell me a story about how my daughter's morning has been or what she has been up to. They listen and help where needed and as said above, my daughter loves it. Thank you for all you do BabySpace.

Babyspace Richmond is a fantastic centre. It is a lovely home away from home for our daughter. She loves the interaction with other children and the wonderful outdoor facilities that they offer. As a mum I love the level of care and respect they show the children. Highly recommend this centre.

My son has been going to Babyspace for a few months now and we couldnt have made a better decision in choosing Babyspace.
We have been well looked after from the settling in period, a lot of time and effort was put into getting to know my son well before he started which gave me a lot of reassurance of how well he was going to be looked after.
My son loves all of the teachers as Babyspace and has a great bond with his primary caregiver.
Babyspace is a fun and relaxed learning environment and I couldn't reccomend them enough.
