Both my children have attended Phoenix Preschool, they have both absolutely loved it and thrived in a supportive, caring environment. I cannot thank the teachers enough for giving our children the best start we could have asked for! Amazing natural wide open spaces.

We have sent our three boys to Phoenix Preschool, two at school now and one presently attending.
Phoenix isn't just a place to drop your child off so you can go to work, it is another family. The staff are so supportive to the child and to the parents. They listen if you have had a rough night with your child. The staff truly do care.
The outdoor space for the kids is amazing. Racing around the track, hiding in the tunnel. Swinging on the swing to try touch the clouds - the kids have a ball.

We started at Phoenix after I looked for a new preschool for my daughter. It was a move I should have done a lot earlier - the staff are amazing, approachable and engaged with the children. The outdoor area is amazing - real grass and so much room! My daughter absolutely loves it there!

We started at Phoenix Preschool after leaving another preschool in the area that was not a great fit for my son. I have been totally blown away by the staff and how much he has learnt by going to Phoenix. The staff are so supportive, approachable and really care for your child. The community base is fantastic.

Phoenix preschool is a community based preschool which has amazing teachers, both my children attend and they always come home with lots of great stories of what they have done or learnt. The staff are super friendly and helpful, they are really focused on making and maintaining good relationships with families. They are creative with their planning and provide lots of engaging and exciting learning opportunities for the children. They are well resourced through an enthusiastic fundraising committee, and the centre is governed by volunteer parents who all want the absolute best for the centre.
