This Kindy has been the best thing to happen to my three children. I felt listened to and looked after when I had a tough time. All three kids enjoyed the multi cultural and fun community. I loved being involved in fundraising and day to day events. All my input was taken seriously. The kids loved their profile books and are still looking at them. There are 5 teachers one of whom is male which is fantastic. The Arabic speaking Teacher aide is super friendly and helpful. The transition to school for all my kids went really well and I felt looked after throughout the whole process. I only can highly recommend this big Kindy that has an amazing outdoor environment. It will turn 100 years next year! Thanks
