We have sent both of our children to B&B and have been consistently impressed with the effectiveness of their care and instruction as well as the genuine care and love given to our precious little ones. They are innovative and tailor the teaching to the needs and interests of the child. There are always new learning experiences for the kids and the staff are communicative, consistent and reflective. Cannot say enough good things. We are really blessed to have found B&B.

I have had my daughter in this centre since she was 3 months old. The daycare teachers have built an amazing relationship with my daughter where she feels nurtured, loved, supported and always made happy. My daughter is confident and above her level in many ways. The centre always has challenging tasks for the children and very focused on ensuring that the kids fine motor skills etc. are developed early and constantly growing..learning never stops

I have had 2 children attend Babies and Buddies and will be sending my third there next year. I cannot recommend this centre enough. They are fabulous, the relationships that are built between the children and the carers are strong and long lasting. The individual interests and needs of all the different children are catered to and the activities available to the children are varied. Communication between the teachers and parents is encouraged and supported by the practices of the centre. A wonderful place, I feel privileged to have been able to send my children here.
