Topkids Avondale has got a full set of kids to play ware however, kids may have to scramble over the toys and play amenities. They've got just too many kids to handle and it appears they now run a kind of 'mass-production' childcare at the same time they aren't cheap. As a result, don't be surprised when your kid comes home without their shoes or socks or even other kids pants...yes!
Their food? Go have a look yourself
I don't expect the staffs of the Childcare centre to give anything less a 5 Star review here. I understand they do so to protect their employer and jobs. However, I just have to say things the way they really are for other Parents
